Moringa oil is crafted in India and is created by subjecting the Moringa Seed to the cold-press process. As the oil is pressed it passes through a simple mechanical cloth filter. This Moringa oil is food-grade. The Moringa oleifera is also known as the Drumstick tree. The seeds grow in long pods in the Himalayan foothills as well as other parts of India, especially in Southern India and some parts of Gujarat State. The resulting oil is a first pressed, unrefined, pale, light green color with a faint nutty odor and taste. After the seed is pressed, the oil is filtered to remove any resulting debris. Moringa oil, being very emollient, helps the skin retain moisture and is used as a binding agent and lubricant. Rich in Oleic acid, (over 84%), Moringa oil has surprising benefits as it is known to deeply penetrate the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. We immediately have fallen in love with this oil! The skin benefits are amazing and may be useful for dry irritated skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. This oil has a notable resistance to oxidative degradation.
