Moringa oil is extracted from seeds of the tree called moringa oleifera or miracle tree. The plant is found in Asia, Africa and South America. It’s used in various areas of life e.g. food, fuel and farming industries. It contains lots of nutritional ingredients e.g. vitamins (A, C and E), minerals (potassium, iron, manganese, chrome and boron), fatty acids (Omega – 3, Omega – 6, Omega – 9) and antioxidants. Moringa oil is recommended for hair and skin care.
Moringa oil is very often added to anti-ageing cosmetics, soaps and aromatherapy oils. It can also be used as a separate product during hair oiling treatments, massage or OCM skin cleansing. Moringa oil should be kept in tightly closed container, in dry and cool place. It shouldn’t be exposed to sun radiation, dampness and air. It’s highly resistant to going rancid but kept in a fridge it coagulates.
