The Business of Fake Argan Oil

As a hair stylist, I ask every single person in my chair what products they use on their hair. And as Argan Oil is becoming more and more popular, I am hearing from many clients who have experience using it.

Having co-founded Saadia Organics, I am especially interested when my clients mention it. I want to know everything: where they bought it, how much it cost, what it smells like, what changes have they noticed in their hair.

Sadly, I have yet to come across a client who has actually found real, authentic Argan Oil.

It’s always the same story: they found a big bottle that cost very little that says something like “authentic Moroccan Argan Oil” on the label. Either it smells floral or like nothing at all. It is generally watery and even slimy in texture. The biggest reason I know it’s fake? I always bring out the sample bottle of Saadia Organics Argan Oil for my clients to try. And they can’t believe the difference!

Of course, there will be fake Argan Oil in the market. There is fake everything on the market. The problem is that even the fake stuff seems to work to some degree.  Putting any oil on your hair will make a small difference. My clients have noticed small changes and seem to like the fake Argan Oil. However, because it’s not real, the effects of the oil are not amazing. And so they are unaware of the true value of real Argan Oil.

Luckily, I am able to share a sample of the real thing with my clients. And when they try it, they fall in love with it.

So, how can you prevent yourself from wasting your money on fake oil?

You no longer have to worry. Saadia Organics actually has the genuine stuff! It is handmade by Saadia Organics co-founder Joèl’s mother-in-law and her relatives. And Saadia herself sends the oil directly to Vancouver.  And my clients couldn’t be happier!
