  • There is a very big difference in Morocco between the fair, recognized cooperatives and the commercial. There is a lot of rigged with the crying d'argane. We have the feeling of having a solid cooperative. In their shop in Essaouira we were able to request information without being forced to buy. .

  • If you want to buy argan oil for food or as a cosmetic, you should go there. The place is about 50 km from Essaouira, but it is worth it. We had our rental car and you drive towards Agadir about 33 km and in the village of Smimou you turn left and then drive about 17 km to Imintlit. Wonderfully on the side of the road many argan trees with the very large fruits but small nuts. After the entrance sheet the same right about 20 m. After the entrance we had to wait a bit and then the assistant came from the Cooperative director. Super-friendly, but only French and no English speaking. But the tour through all the product steps of this women's cooperative was explained very well with all the tools like smartphone translators. 30 women work there every day, 20 at home. The stay lasted longer than 1 hour but that was very interesting for us. A great experience is worth it. After the tour, tea, bread, argan oil and arganism were served free of charge. Tasted superb. No pressure like many other cooperatives was made to buy anything. That was our wish and every product was explained. The bottling date and best of date are also printed on the argan oil. Cost: Argan oil (food) 250ml 150 Drh., 500ml = 230 Drh. Cosmetics are very cheap.
