International Day of Argania

Observed annually on May 10th, the International Day of Argania, or the International Day of the Argan Tree, was designated by UNESCO in 2021 to spotlight the environmental significance of the argan tree.

Native to Morocco, the argan tree (Argania spinosa) significantly contributes to sustainable development. These trees serve as a source of fuelwood, and their seeds are used to extract argan oil. Argan oil finds applications in cooking, cosmetics, skincare, and hair care products.
