!see argan oild listed now used in shampoos and creams. Does anyone know if this is a nut or seed? Should this be avoided if you have peanut or tree nut allergies?

I just noticed it yesterday in some hair products! Here are some various websites I found...

What do the botanists call it? I have seen in print Argania spinosa (apparently preferred), Sideroxylon argania, and Argania sideroxylon Roem. & Schult. Michel Chauvet points out that the botanical family to which the argan tree belongs, Sapotaceae, includes other edible oil plants. The best known related product is shea butter (karité in French), which comes from Vitellaria paradoxa (syn. Butyrospermum parkii) of tropical Africa.
Apparently the nut/stone/drupe has quite an adventure before it's pressed for the oil...
