There’s a new kid in town and its name is Moringa oil. It is being praised as the “new wonder oil” and a top anti-aging weapon.

While it may seem new for us, it’s actually been around for centuries. In ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece, Moringa Oil was used in making perfume and to protect the skin. Recently, skin and hair care companies have started to incorporate Moringa oil into creams, serums, body lotions, shampoos, and conditioners because of its cleansing, nourishing and healing properties.


Native to India, the Moringa Tree grows at the base of the Himalayan Mountains. It’s also known as the “miracle tree “as nearly all the tree is edible. Its leaves, roots, and seeds are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

Moringa Oil is taken from the seeds of the Moringa tree. It is like the oil your skin produces - it easily absorbs deep into the skin to help balance and nourish the skin. It contains Vitamin A which will help build collagen in the skin, Vitamin C to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and protect the skin from free radicals and pollutants.  Vitamin E is another key vitamin contained within Moringa Oil that can help heal acne and irritated skin and provide hydration without clogging pores. 


Now that you know about Moringa Oil you are going to want to try Medik8's Lipid-Balance cleansing oil! It's as soft as cashmere, it melts seamlessly into the skin, then transforms with water into a milky emulsion that rinses away for a beautifully supple complexion. Moringa extract draws dirt, impurities, and pollution to itself so they can be easily cleansed away”.
