Have you resolved to take better care of your skin this year? Are you a bit concerned by those pesky signs of age creeping onto your face, neck, and hands? Well, read on, as we have a 100% natural remedy that can change your skincare for ever! Yes, we also have Moringa products for the skin.

You might have heard of the superfood Moringa. It is deemed to be the most nutritious plant in the world and every bit of it can be used – from its roots to the leafy crown.

The oil pressed from the mature seeds, and the Moringa powder and juice from the leaves, have been singled out as powerful beauty- and anti-aging boosters.

Where to start

Beauty starts on the inside, as our mothers drummed into us! Being the largest organ in the body, the skin is a good measure of your general health. Dullness, dryness, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea can all be indicators of underlying health problems and vitamin or mineral deficiencies.

Drinking Moringa supplements, like our exclusive Moringa Extract, can thus improve the quality of your skin with its nutrient count of 92 – many of which are skin-loving. Let us take a quick look at the specific nutrients in Moringa that will beautify your skin:

Vitamin A

Vital for anti-aging, healthy cell turnover and general skin health.

Vitamin E

An antioxidant that is essential for retaining skin moisture and protecting against free radical damage.

Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

Key for a healthy skin barrier to keep moisture in and irritants out. It can also help to treat sensitive skins, rosacea, and dark spots.

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)

Important for optimal cell growth and repair, and therefore for the healing of scars.

Vitamin C

Another vital antioxidant that stabilizes collagen – which keeps our skin plump and prevents sagging.

Zinc

Key in wound healing and healthy cell renewal. It is often used to treat acne.

Protein and amino acids

Amino acids are important for the connective tissues and are the building blocks of the cells that provide structure in the skin. Moringa has a very high protein content and contains all nine essential amino acids (very rare in a plant). This means that it will help to keep the skin smooth, elastic and strong.

The beauty of Moringa Seed Oil

Now that you know how to fortify your skin from the inside and give it everything it needs to get glowing, we can move on to Moringa’s topical application.

The Romans and ancient Egyptians understood the wonderful benefits of Moringa Seed Oil (also called Ben-oil). Its properties were so venerated, that it was used by, and even buried with, the pharaohs.

It is rich in behenic- and oleic acid. It allows the oil to penetrate deep into the skin, carrying nutrients and moisture. These components also reinforce the skin’s barrier to protect it from the elements and pollutants.

Moringa oil contains high levels of antioxidants, as well as hormones called cytokines, which help to promote cell growth and delay damage and destruction of skin tissues. This marvellous oil improves radiance, reduces sun damage, and prevents sagging and acne. In addition, the Vitamin C content helps to build collagen and Vitamin E reduces inflammation.

Even high-end cosmetic houses like Estee Lauder, Elemis, Huxley, and Lancome, have cottoned on to the benefits of using Moringa oil in their creams, serums, and make-up. Emma Hardie, a famous aesthetician who has a cult following among supermodels and actresses, swears by Moringa oil and uses it extensively in her own exclusive skincare range.

How we love Moringa Seed Oil

We have been so enamoured with the incredible benefits of Moringa Oil, that we decided to develop a natural skincare range called Arborie around it. All the products are paraben- and cruelty free. It is handmade in small batches to ensure that we can offer you the best quality products at fair prices.

By adding super skin ingredients like Aloe Ferox, Hyaluronic Acid, rosehip oil, and specially selected essential oils, we have created a product line to suit every skin type. We also did not forget to include our esteemed male customers. There is a Moringa beard oil and aftershave option just for you. The beard oil is especially popular as it keeps that manly facial fur healthy, soft, dense, and fragrant – just begging for a cuddle!

Are you excited about the miracle of Moringa for your skin? We have every product you need to nourish it from the inside out in our website shop!
