Milana - Moringa Oil
Milana - Moringa Oil
Moringa oil is extracted from the mature seeds of Moringa oleifera tree, also known as a drumstick tree or “Miracle Tree”. The oil is obtained by compressing the moringa seeds using a cold-press method which produces the highest quality of oil from farm to the bottle.
A true multitasker, moringa oil is rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamin A, C, E and fatty acids, which helps to soothe, protect and moisturise both skin and hair. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-aging properties, making it a one-stop treatment for various skin problems such as acne, inflamed skin, aging, discoloration and sun-damaged skin.
Moringa oil contains almost 70% oleic acid (comparable to olive oil), also known as omega-9 fatty acid, which helps with cell regeneration, restoring skin's natural barrier, moisturisation and protection from pollutants. Unlike other oils, moringa oil is rich in the cytokinin, zeatin a potent plant hormone known for stimulating cellular growth and delaying the aging of cells. It is also one of the rare oils with high behenic acid content (up to 7%), a fatty acid that acts as a conditioning agent for strong and healthy hair and scalp.
In addition, due to its high levels of antioxidants, Moringa oil is an incredibly stable oil, resistant to oxidation i.e. does not go rancid for years - it is known to have a longer shelf-life than most commonly used oils in skincare and beauty such as sunflower oil, olive oil, soybean oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil and argan oil.
