The moringa tree is native to the Himalayas but is being cultivated and used in different countries in form of a vegetable or oil plant. The leaves and seeds are true treasures of nature: they are rich in vitamins, minerals and diverse amino acids which is why it has been used as a medicinal plant in Ayurvedic tradition for centuries. The oil used in cosmetics formulas is derived from moringa seeds.
Moringa oil is a stable plant oil that can be preserved for years - even when exposed to temperature fluctuations. The reason why this precious oil is well-loved as a cosmetic component is because it requires no additional preservatives.
Effects on the skin
Moringa oil is said to contain about 50 different antioxidants and a few dozen anti-inflammatory components making it the ideal anti-aging hero:
This precious oil is high in antioxidants, protects against environmental influences and supports skin vitality. Oftentimes, it is used as a moisturising component for dry skin in cosmetic formulas because the structure of the oil is similar to that produced by our skin. This effect also plays a role when it comes to our hair.
Vitamin A stimulates collagen formation and the oil doubles as a great massage oil thanks to its light-weight consistency.
Moringa oil fight pimples
Moringa oil is a wonderful skincare element for impure skin types: unlike other oils, moringa oil does not clog the pores. Instead, it possesses anti-inflammatory effects that are beneficial for impure and acne-prone skin.
Furthermore, it stimulates the regenerative process of the skin and activates its ability to heal itself. A blend of antibacterial and moisturising properties provides a balanced measure of nourishment and pimple-fighting effects.
The same applies to the scalp: moringa oil can be used to ward off dandruff because it cleanses and nurtures whilst reducing skin particles from flaking.
All in all, we agree that moringa oil is can be used as a comprehensive body care product. It delivers moisture, soothes, cleanses and possesses anti-inflammatory properties whilst counteracting acne. Create a quick, at-home body scrub by mixing pure moringa oil with a small amount of sugar for softer, more supple skin.
