It all began with argan oil.

All the way from Morocco.

At Sprekenhus our focus has always been to formulate skin, hair, and body care products of the finest quality.


It all started with argan oil, an amazing product derived from the argan tree native to Morocco, and harvested locally.


For generations, locals of the argan woodlands in Morocco have pressed the nut to extract the precious oil, as a dietary supplement and to nourish skin and hair. In 1998 the argan forest was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. 


The argan oil is an organic product extracted from the kernels of the argan tree and we are proud to offer the highest quality, certified organic and fair trade argan oil, delivered fresh in small batches directly from the source.


One of the main reasons that argan oil is so therapeutic is because it is rich in vitamin A and E. And the Moroccan argan oil is also packed with antioxidants, fatty acids and linoleic acid all of which help skin to heal and reduce inflammation. Properties that make it particularly beneficial for your skin, body and hair care regime.


When applied externally, tocopherol from the vitamin E helps to boost cell production while promoting healthy skin and hair.


Argan oil has been shown to:


  • Minimize fine lines on your face
  • Restore elasticity
  • Improve skin tone
  • Soothe irritation
  • Neutralize free radicals that cause signs of aging
  • Protect the skin from harmful environmental agents

Argan oil is most commonly used as a skin moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin and give it a natural boost. It is absorbed easily and is light and does not leave a greasy residue.


Hair Conditioner
