I'm so shocked to see how you can be fooled by a so- called organic local cooperative that pretends to sell quality products. I've bought a 100% argan oil soap and it burned my entire family's faces, when you use it, it actually smells chemicals...More

Don't buy here. Triple prices than other places. Wait till Essaouira where you can buy same thing for 3 times less price !!!!! They show you how oil is made to attract you buying it.

It was a good experience to see the whole process of producing the Argan oil. You get to see it all close up and it was amazing how many products are available. From oil to lotions to honey. They will also ship your purchases.

Watched them making the Argan Oil and then brought into a room to sample and learn about all the products. Prices were not negotiable, but seemed to be fair and the quality of the products top notch. Tour guides all bring you here in the...More
