Because the extraction of Argan oil is so labour intensive, as it takes a few days to produce one litre; the government of Morocco has established a fund for the cooperatives while the government of Monaco has also gotten involved to help protect these trees and the cooperatives. I believe it makes us all happy to know that the proceeds from Argan oIl in any part of the world go directly to benefit the women who makes the oil- we think it is culturally, ethically good to support the North African women, Argan Oil and its sale.
