The lush and exotic oils that make up Arghand products have been cold pressed or steam distilled from the indigenous fruits, nuts and botanicals of southern Afghanistan. Used for centuries to protect against a harsh climate, they restore health and radiance to the skin. Arghand oils are extracted from the ingredients below by members of the cooperative in our solar powered atelier. Arghand uses only food grade oils.

The following raw materials are neither cold pressed nor steam distilled for their oil. Rather, we use a tincture of these roots as natural dyes to color the soap. The beeswax is used in combination with our oils to enrich our moisturizers.
