High quality Argan oil must also not be perfumed because the process of deodorization removes its natural scent along with numerous essential nutrients which makes it beneficial. Odorless or strong smelling oil must be avoided.


·       Sediment or residue. Sediment often indicates a good quality of the product. Typically, good oils will have some sediments at the bottles bottom and may appear a little bit cloudy. This is because sediments are part of natural product and usually appears if it is not highly-refined product.

Argan oil products must not include any chemicals or any ingredient because combining such will just result on a decline product quality.


·       Price. Don’t get fooled with cheap argan oil offered in the market. An authentic Argan oil will less likely to be affordable because of difficulty in manufacturing one. This oil is always labor-consuming, hard to produce, so manufacturers will less likely to offer it nearly for free. Nonetheless, the expensive one may not be authentic because the cost may just because of fancy packaging and marketing campaigns.
