Botanical Name: Moringa oleifera
Extraction Method: Cold Pressed
Processing Type: Unrefined
Description: Moringa Oil is derived from the botanical that is commonly referred to as “The Drum Stick Tree” for its long, stick-like pods that contain the oil-bearing seeds. Due to the high levels of Behenic Acid in Moringa Oleifera Oil, it has also earned the nicknames Ben Oil and Behen Oil. Rich in moisture as well as vitamins B and C, this oil is known to nourish, condition, and exfoliate the skin, thereby helping to minimize the appearance of the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, and to enhance the complexion’s radiance. Its emollience promotes easy spreadability on the skin and the hair, leaving both looking and feeling softer, smoother, and more lustrous.
Color: Ranges from light yellow to dark green.
Aromatic Description: Typical and characteristic of carrier oils.
Common Uses: Moringa Oil is often used in relaxing massages, both full body massages and head massages, as it is reputed to induce sleep and soothe feelings of irritability. When added to body scrubs and soaps, Moringa Oil helps optimize their cleansing and exfoliating properties. Moringa Oil’s absorption of fragrance compounds makes it an ideal enfleurage foundation, which also makes it an ideal base ingredient for perfume formulations, such as those involving essential oils with floral, nutty, herbal, or spicy aromas.
Absorption: This oil absorbs easily into the skin and may leave a slightly glossy residue.
Note: This oil may solidify in colder temperatures. We recommend placing the bottle in a gently warm water bath, and changing the water frequently until it is back to its liquid state.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 1 year with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the 'Best Before' date.
Cautions: None known.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.
