MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL MANILA: 8 WAYS TO SPOT A FAKE ARGAN OIL

Day 25 (of 31).Who doesn’t lust over Princess Tamina’s (Gemma Arterton) from movie “Prince of Persia” long thick, lustrous JET BLACK hair in the movie and her dark eyes and how she perfectly portrayed a Moroccan princess?

ARGAN OIL MANILA

I’ve mentioned this holy grail before in my previous post. I think this wonder bottle deserves at least one blog post. :) I like products that are hitting a lot of birds in one stone. The Argan Oil is an all-in-one treatment for the hair, face and body. Note: I’m not beauty blogger and won’t be reviewing products unless I really really really go crazy over them. I also don’t wear makeup except during special occasions, so there’s the dire need to have clear skin. (Pimples, layu-an mo kame. LOL ) Lately, I’ve finished a bottle of this wonder oil and is looking for an alternative here in Manila, but problem is- they are all OUT OF STOCK. The ones I get from Healthy Options (Josie Maran Argan Oil and Melvita Huile D’Argan) are out. Also I’ve tried a bottle from Salcedo Market that has no brand, again- out of stock.

Argan Oil Benefits: The Argan oil or so called “Liquid Gold” is a hot item these days. With the amazing positive effects they can have on your hair and skin there is no mystery as to why. But as those names suggest, quality Argan Oil, the main ingredient in Moroccan Oils, is not cheap. Argan Oil the most rare oil on earth. Anything that rare and that valuable is bound to have a plethora of knock off and counterfeit products in the market. This create a problem for the cost conscious shopper who wants a good deal, but obviously does not want to be ripped off with fake Argan oil.

There are just a plethora of sellers out there in Ebay, Amazon, Multiply and even in Europe, France and Morroco itself who sells fake argan oil. I’ve read a lot of stories from the internet about how these brands take advantage of the “Argan Oil” craze. So to get the best deal out of your money, I’ve collated a comprehensive guide to spot the authentic ones from the fake ones—

Spot a fake Argan Oil:

1. Check the ingredients.

Some commercial Argan oil are NOT pure argan oil. They are mixed with low quality oils (sunflower, olive oil etc), or sometimes contain dimethicone, and other chemical ingredients. Argan is an expensive oil no preservatives, no fragrances, no parrafinum, not even water.. Only PURE argan oil can give you FULL benefits of real argan oil :)

2. The bottle.

Do not trust brands that say “100% Pure Argan Oil” in label. Most argan oils are just hidden in pretty packaging.  Both make the oil deteriorate. Glass is the best way to store this gold liquid. (Amber bottles, dark, ultraviolet protected glass bottle which is eco-friendly)

3. The price.

Argan Oil is very difficult to make. It takes hours of manual labour and that does not come free. So there is no such thing as cheap Argan Oil. Don’t waste your money if you’re not buying the authentic ones. If you are getting 60% off than the original ones, look for another place.

4. The scent.

The scent should be somehow “raw. green, nutty” or like “popcorn”. Be careful of Argan that smells too perfumed, floral or nothing at all. The best qualityArgan Oil should be also undeodorized. The deodorization process removes the argan nut’s scent along with many important nutrients that makes argan oil so great in the first place.

5. The consistency.

Argan Oil absorbs quickly and beautifully. Fake ones go through a lot of process. Raw Argan Oil has sediment settled at the bottom (when not in use and will turn semi solid when it is very cold). Oil is a bit cloudy and has some elements. This is virgin oil only means that oil didn’t go through heat and filtration system thus restorative properties aren’t ripped off.

6. The color.

Argan oil should be a golden-yellow colour when looked at through a clear glass. If the color is too light, the most likely is that it was mixed with other oils. Culinary argan oil is s a golden brown color.

7. What kind of seller should you trust.

Avoid purchasing oil from vendors who also sell spices, kohl, scented waters, soaps, dried herbs, etc. Avoid Chinese vendors, they say. Specialty shops, such as essential oil apothecaries, are a safer bet. Vendors have to be transparent where they get their oils. Should tell you whether it’s cold pressed argan oil, toasted argan oil deodorized argan oil, hand-made or machine-made. Vendors will be willing to show warranty, certificate of authenticity and accepts credit cards or paypal payments as well. Always a good sign if photos are taken in-house.

8. Stick to name brands.

Do not buy from Ebay, Sulit or Amazon. There are some good deals to be found with no-name brands, but not only do you have the risk of counterfeits but also of no-name brands that have nothing to lose, so they dilute the Argan content or exaggerate the “purity”. Brands like Moroccan oil, Josie Maran, Melvita Huile and Souq Organics are known to be good manufacturers of quality Argan Oil based products. They have a reputation to uphold, so as long as you follow the other tips above and find a reputable seller you will be in good shape. Where to find Argan Oil in Manila?

Argan Oil in Manila: Argan Moroccan Oil Reviews

SOUQ ORGANIC Moroccan Argan Oil Review- This one’s a crowd’s favorite and there seems to be a lot of GOOD testimonials. For reviews, you may check out the links below. 

My recent review about Souq Organic is here: Save a few bucks by simplifying your Nighttime Beauty Regime: Souq Organics ARGAN OIL (Manila) Review 

Argan oil manila

The Souq Organics Moroccan Argan Oil is 100% organic. The 30ml bottle contains nothing but pure Argan Oil from Morocco. It is just as good, if not better than other Argan Oil brands in the market because it is cold pressed, and produced under rigorous and strict quality management systems. Our Argan Oil is certified organic by Europe-based ECOCERT – one of the largest organic certifications organizations in the world and at Php 1500, it retails almost half the price of other premium Argan Oil brands out there!

  • Lynn

    You just said bottles should not be clear. I may be wrong but I think the souq argan oil I saw in their website is in a clear bottle. It should’ve been in a dark or amber colored bottle right? Please enlighten me on this. I’ve been thinking of buying a bottle of argan oil sold by Souq International but now I’m confused. Thanks!

    • http://lifeisgelato.wordpress.com Tina Ruste-Madrazo

      That’s right lynn! The souq bottle is clear. I got mine a few days ago. But so far, it’s one of the products in Manila that is “closest” to the criteria above. My trusty Josie Maran is out of stock, so I have to look for an alternative. Souq’s argan oil is said to be processed so the oil won’t deteriorate in the clear glass bottle. So far it says the oil is- a) HIGHEST GRADE b)FAIRLY DRADED and COLD PRESSED. (That explains why it also doesn’t have sediments.)

      There had been a lot of raving reviews for its effectivity so I dared to try it! :) So far I’m not disappointed. I will probably get back to you guys after a month or so … or when the results are starting to show visible. :)

      • yayie cenon

        Hi! Pure argan oil doesn’t have to be actually in amber bottles as it wouldn’t diminish it’s quality. As long as normal care is followed, like, do not expose to direct sunlight or be unhygienic and putting the oil in your hands and back again (use the spout pls). Be aware as well that not all argan oil in amber glasses are pure as this could mask what’s inside. If it is mixed with other oils, chances are there will be a separation of oils eventually, fake suppliers doesn’t want you to see that.=)

  • http://twitter.com/joniang Joni (@joniang)

    Hi Tina! Nacurious na naman ko sa gin post mo. Been reading some blog posts talking about this Argan Oil, thought maybe I should try too! So which one is it on this page? http://www.thesouqorganics.com/product-category/argan-oil/ Hehe

    • http://lifeisgelato.wordpress.com Tina Ruste-Madrazo

      Hi jonz! I went to try this one! :) http://www.thesouqorganics.com/product/100-pure-organic-moroccan-argan-oil/

      I got rid of my previous moisturizers and use this right after I wash my face. 2-3 drops is good kana. Let it absorb before putting anything else like makeup foundations/bb creams/ sunblock. So far so good!! My face is hydrated the whole day. I’m hoping to see more good results soon. Just started Souq last week :)

    Hi Tina!

    Thanks for posting such a helpful article. I’m sure it’ll help tons of people who are on the hunt for real authentic oil.

    I’d like to introduce my brand, CarmenClaire Cosmetics. We sell beauty products from all over the world, including 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil. You’ll find that our Omnia Botanica Argan Oil fits all the criteria, except that it comes in a clear glass bottle with dropper, inside a box. Like many reputable brands, it’s certified by ECOCERT. No carrier oils, no extra ingredients, just Argan Oil.

    It comes directly from our supplier in Italy, who sources it directly from Morocco. Because of this, the oil comes to us as a finished product. We don’t buy in bulk and repackage it into smaller bottles. And at P575 a bottle (30ml), it’s the most affordable Argan Oil out there.

    People may wonder why it’s not in the 4-digit price range, but CarmenClaire is all about products that just plain work, without breaking the bank. I don’t believe in jacking up prices because that takes the fun out of shopping for beauty products.

    Check out our whole range of Argan Oil products, including Pure Oil, Face Cream, Hair Oil and a lot more: http://multiply.com/carmenclaireco/Organic-Argan-Oil/cl-dfg8UMvcDC

    • tinaelaine@gmail.com

      Hi Christina, I really want to try as much as many ‘authentic argan oil’ as I could and will review about it. But as of the moment I haven’t tried that of Grace Lee’s. Just make sure it has organic certifications. Because there are argan oils that have a lot of filler oils. Best for your money in you get the authentic ones. My article says a lot about spotting what’s original. Don’t be fooled by the scent and packaging or even the price! I will make reviews as much as I could!:)

    Hi Tina, how much do they sell the Argan oil at the Salcedo Market and how many ml. Is the Josie Maran in a 50ml bottle?
    How is the Argan oil different from other beauty oils (if you have tried the Human Nature Sunflower beauty oil)..

    Regards
    Cel

    • tinaelaine@gmail.com

      Hi cel 1600 in Salcedo. It’s pure morocco oil and not branded. Sometimes the ‘eastern’ looking ladies aren’t there so these oils aren’t readily available.

      I bought mine from Souq Organics.

      I tried HM sunflower oil too but it doesn’t do that much unlike argan oil. to throw the rest of my beauty regimes and replace it with this oil.

      You may view my other posts to understand more of argan oil. Btw nice blog photos you got there. What camera are you using?:)

  • renz

    It’s ok to buy non-branded argan oil provided he supplier can provide documents like certificate of analysis, certificate of origin and/or certificate stating its organic status, e.g. Ecocert. Also ask for the botanical source of the argan oil you are purchasing. Sunflower, olive oil, grapeseed, etc. are not low-quality oils. They are less expensive because the supply is greater.

    By the way, I’m a pharmacist by profession and into spa industry and aromatherapy. =)

      HI MAYE, I didn’t buy it before because think it has a floral scent. Some other oils might be mixed as well. if you want an effective argan, it has to be 100% PURE. The smell is different.

    Hi Tina! How much did you get the Melvita Argan oil for? Thanks :)

    • tinaelaine@gmail.com

      Hi Claudette!! I would recommend souq organics and Josie maran since these two are really authentic and highly effective

  • Teresa

    Hi, I’m also waiting for some comments from the users of this product regarding the Argan Oil being sold at Watsons. Please let us know if it is really effective.

  • Eilla

    Hi Tina, first of all I wanted to say that this article is really useful since I am trying to get the best argan oil for myself and after purchasing bottles and bottles of it and seeing how little of the actual liquid gold in several claimed “Argan Oil” products, I am struggling to find a hand pressed unheated argan oil.
    I also wanted to comment that in your post, you claimed that the best argan oil is not deodorized and you said to stick to name brands like Josie Maran. Josie Maran argan oil is deodorized that it didn’t smell like anything. As far as I know that it means that the oil has been heated up to deodorize the natural scent of the oil which also means it removed the important effectiveness of the precious oil. Is it worth paying over $40 for Josie Maran oil that isn’t totally pure even though she claimed it is? Am I paying 70% for her name that is plastered on the bottle and just getting 30% of effectiveness of the refined argan oil or am I getting the real deal?
    I hope you can get back to me on this one. I totally appreciate it. Thank you.

    • tinaelaine@gmail.com

      Hi Eilla! Thanks for the feedback!!!

      I’m giving an ongoing raffle for Souq Organics 100% Authentic argan oil now. Please visit: http://wp.me/p3kbQ8-1Yi

      Regarding your question on the Josie Maran Argan Oil, it’s US based and it claims to be authentic. I tried it and so far it doesn’t have much scent and the oil easily absorbs in my skin. It’s one of the top3 argan oils that is commercialized so far. If you’re sceptic about it I would recommend Souq Orgnaics. You may visit my recent post for more details. http://wp.me/p3kbQ8-1Yi

      • Eilla

        Wow, thank you for the fast reply. Your raffle is for Philippines only so sadly I can’t be in it. I’m not from there and don’t have any friends who live there either. I’ve read your review on the Souq Organics Argan oil but I found out that they don’t ship internationally. I just discovered Saadia Organics and they sell argan oil that isn’t heated at all. I just purchased a bottle and will let you know how it fares since Souq Organics don’t ship to the US. Here is the link to the Saadia Organics regarding warnings of impure argan oil: http://saadiaorganics.com/7-warning-signs-that-your-argan-oil-is-impure

        I am not sceptic about the authenticity of Josie Maran argan oil. I am sure it is argan oil but hers has been put through a process that lowers the full capability of the oil and having to pay that much for something lesser just makes me feel cheated.

The seller says that it’s 70(Seventy?)ml for only 1500php while the other brands you mentioned sells only 20-30ml and is about 750php-1500php. I’m doubting this L’Oro seller I’m a little confused that they can sell higher volume of Argan oil with lesser price and they claim it’s 100% Argan Oil, (but you mentioned this kind of advertising can be fraudulent). So, 40 additional ml for the same price is a little weird for me. Does the Argan oil vary price in the market today since it’s known a little long enough or is there supposed to be a standard amount that sellers can put out in every bottle in the market? Thank you for your help! I like this article, by the way. I hope you could answer my query soon! Thank you again! :)

      I’m sorry for the late reply but then please check if the are ECO-cerified or USDA organic seal is on the bottle. I think they’re legit. :)

    Hi! I would just like to ask if you happen to know the brand Snoe? Because they also sell Argan oil in small amber glass bottles, and they’re almost the price of the Souq’s (799)

    • tinaelaine@gmail.com

      HI jen!! Yes I happen to know them. I haven’t tried Snoe yet though but I’m trying their shampoos and will be reviewing about it. I’m not sure they do sell 100% pure argan oil though :)

    Just want to share this.

    My wife works in Morocco and she buys directly from the large stores where Argan oil is being sold. There is a place in Morocco which is similar to Divisoria wherein they sell Argan oil products mainly.

    Mostly the argan oil is contained in a plastic bottle. The big bottles (above 250ml) can sometimes be found in glass bottles. But all of the containers are in clears ones, even the glass bottles.

    I am already selling the argan oil to friends. And those who have bought have given positive feedbacks.

    I, myself use it since my age is starting to show already. I apply it on my face and arms as a moisturizer. Really does wonders. For the hair, I just added a few pumps to my organic shampoo. I also use the oil to treat eczema on my hands. What a relief! No more itchy breakouts unlike before when I used to treat them with medicine.

    I also use them on my kids. Very effective for treating skin asthma.

    Thanks for letting me share the benefits of Argan oil. Stay safe everyone. :-)

    Hi there, I just bought my argan oil, it says ( 100% certified organic Argan oil) USDA certified , it comes boxed in a transparent glass bottle costed me 25 dollars for 30 ml in perth Australia. the problem with this is that it smells like shi. I have also realised now, that has no expired date, is it ok?, I haven’t used it as the smell is awful, I am doubting, is it too cheap for 30ml? and what about the smell? someone help me, I have horrible dry skin, I was looking to buy through the internet too, I cant trust them. anyone heard of the Arganlife Australia brand. They sell though the internet. They advertised as a 100% virgin pure argan oil, cold pressed that don’t contain deodorised oil, ecocert, Australia certified organic.but price is not that bad, 100ml 58dollars, and 50ml for 30 dollars. should I trust that?.. someone please tell me.. before I get ripped off,, thanks
