What Is Moringa?
Moringa is known as ‘The Miracle Tree’ or 'Drumstick Tree' and is packed full of vitamins, minerals and huge amounts of antioxidants.
This is why it has been used in beauty rituals as far back as the Egyptian times. The oil from the Moringa seeds was seen as so miraculous, they were even buried with it, alongside their jewellery and furniture!
The Moringa tree is native to parts of Africa and Asia. The benefits can be found all over the tree, in the flour, seeds and leaves!
Why We Love Moringa?
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY | ANTI-AGEING | ANTI-OXIDANT | MOISTURISING | SOOTHING
Super hydrating,anti-ageing and moisturising, we could go on for days about the health and skincare benefits that Moringa holds, BUT what makes it so powerful in skin care are its anti-inflammatory properties.
The modern lifestyle means that day after day, we are exposed to stress and environmental pollution, especially those of us living in urban areas.
Toxic fumes from traffic, UVA and B rays and environmental pollutants all cause the skin problems leading to inflammation, irritation and increased sensitivity.
Moringa extracts work to support skin with its antioxidant defences, preventing further damage and supporting already inflamed skin. It effectively stops pollution sticking to the skin - like your very own invisible protective shield!
