Moringa olifeira comes from the Hymalayan moutains in the north of India. It is known by many names and one of them is the “miracle tree”. It has been used in ayurvedic medicine for 4000 years to treat more than 300 diseases. The oil is obtained from the pea pod of the tree.
Moringa oil contains 20 types of amino-acids that greatly benefit skin health & elasticity, 46 types of antioxidants, 36 anti-inflammatory compounds, four times more vitamin A than a carrot and seven times more vitamin C than an orange.
The benefits of the oil for the skin’s health & beauty are numerous. The seeds contain collagen that helps reduce fine lines and repair damaged skin cells. It is a very rich moisturizer thanks to the many mono & poly saturated fatty acids it contains. These fatty acids form a protective shield on the skin that retains humidity, keeping the skin plump and dewy. It is also an excellent oil for hair’s health. It is absorbed very quickly and the result never looks greasy.
