AGADIR - It's often marketed  as liquid gold under the label "Moroccan Oil" but it’s main ingredient is Argan oil from the Argan tree that grows in a forest in Southwest Morocco. Much of the oil is produced by poor women working at more than one hundred fifty cooperatives, who harvest and crack the Argan nut before grinding it to extract the oil.
