She created a variety of argan nut butters that originated from a family recipe passed down for generations.

“[I was inspired] growing up eating this incredibly delicious spread made at home by my mom and grandmother,” said Gara. “I wanted to bring the argan oil to the food industry, since most people don’t even know how you could actually eat argan, instead of just using it on hair and skin!”

According to the company’s website, these butters are gluten-free, GMO-free, dairy-free and contain no artificial ingredients. It also contains the benefits of organic argan oil, which is packed with vitamins A and E, antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids, omega-3 fatty acids and linoleic acid.
