Did you know that our skin is the largest organ in our body? At the same time many toxins are even more harmful when applied to our skin than if ingested orally. Enzymes in our saliva and stomach are highly effective at breaking down a lot of these toxins quickly and passing them through our system. On our skin however a lot of these toxins are absorbed quickly on a large area, but only broken down and passed through our body slowly. Much like with the food we ingest, it is therefore important to use pure, natural and preferably even edible ingredients on our skin. Unfortunately, a lot of skincare products contain various toxic ingredients, in particular mineral oils (petroleum jelly and others).
africrops! Moringa oil is food-grade, cold-pressed from Moringa seeds. In the simplicity of its processing it is as natural, and of course toxin-free product for skin-care as one could ever find. At the same time its benefits provide a complete solution for all skin care needs.
Moringa Seed oil is one of the antioxidant richest oils in the world. What truly however makes it stand out is the extremely high content of Zeatin, which is unmatched by any other plant. Zeatin is found to be a particularly well-absorbed and effective antioxidant in the human body (read about Zeatin and antioxidants here). Overall, Moringa oil contains 46 different antioxidants. This gives Moringa seed oil unique anti-aging properties. It is extremely effective at evening out the skin’s complexion (eg getting rid of discolourations under the eyes), building up collagen, tightening the skin and getting rid of wrinkles.
At the same time Moringa oil has great anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. This makes it highly effective and relieving when treating skin irritations and inflammations, such as athlete’s foot, eczemas, cuts, burns, psoriasis, warts and more.
Moringa oil is also great at nourishing and moisturizing our skin. It contains a wide range of Vitamins, including A, B, C and E, as well as various, valuable essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acid.
In its flavor Moringa oil is slightly nutty, while it looks and feels a lot like Olive oil. Once applied to the skin however, it is one of the fastest absorbing oils. This means that it does not leave a greasy feeling on the skin. Moringa oil leaves the skin feeling soft right away and for a long time. From its benefits to the way it feels on your skin, Moringa oil is the ultimate skin care solution.
