The cheapest way of producing it is to let goats climb the argan trees and eat the fruits, which they love.
They eventually poop out the stones and they are gathered, hopefully washed, roasted and ground to produce argan oil.
This way of production gives a very strong smelling oil, unsurprisingly, smelling of goats. The better, but more expensive way is very labour intensive.
The fruits are hand picked and the flesh is also removed by hand as machines cannot do this very well.

This work is mostly done as a homes based business by Berber women and it is a good source of income for them when they work in co-operatives.
The resulting oil has all the benefits and hardly any odour.
