Moringa Oil


What does this mean?

Inci:Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil

A very stable oil rich in Omega 9 that conditions and nourishes the skin, especially dry and mature skin types. Penetrates well and softens the skin without feeling greasy.


A pale to mid yellow, mobile oil with a neutral odour obtained by pressing the seeds from the Moringa tree.
  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
Combine Moringa Oil with Castor Oil and EcoSilk as a superb wipe off cleanser.
Blend with heavier oils like She Butter Oil and Macadamia Oil to make the blend feel lighter, whilst adding a good antioxidant effect.

Skin Care
  • Moringa Oil is especially good to use for mature and dry skin and skin which has difficulty retaining its moisture. As it is an excellent emollient, it nourishes and moisturises the skin very well and sinks in without feeling greasy.
  • It softens the skin and keeps it more supple and resilient. A good choice to include in eye creams, facial serums and anti ageing products.
  • If the skin has been very dehydrated and looks dull and lifeless, Moringa Oil will bring a natural, healthy sheen to the skin giving a younger looking skin tone.
  • Blend with Moringa Oil with Omega 3 rich oils like Rosehip Seed Oil and Chia Seed Oil for even better effects.
  • A special quality of Moringa Oil is that it gives shine to the skin and lips when added to oil blends, face serums and creams. It is a good antioxidant making it excellent to use in anti ageing face creams and serums.
  • It’s a great oil for massage as it has good lubricating properties and makes the skin feel soft and moisturised. It lightens the skin feel of heavier oils like Shea Butter Oil and gives antioxidant qualities to the whole massage blend.
  • Good to use as a cleanser especially when blended with Castor Oil.
Hair Care
  • Moringa Oil is an excellent addition to hair oils and hair packs.
  • It moisturises the hair shaft and conditions the scalp and also adds a good shine to the hair.
