Processing Type: Unrefined
Obtained From: Seeds
Description: Moringa Organic Carrier Oil is derived from the seeds of the exotic Moringa Oleifera tree (also known as 'The Drum Stick Tree') native to the Himalayan regions of India. Due to the high levels of Behenic Acid in Moringa Oleifera Oil, it has also earned the nicknames Ben Oil and Behen Oil. Rich in moisture as well as vitamins B and C, this oil is known to nourish, condition, and exfoliate the skin while enhancing the complexion's radiance. It is also a rich source of antioxidants, helping to minimize the appearance of the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Its emollience promotes easy spreadability on the skin and the hair, leaving both looking and feeling softer, smoother, and more lustrous.
Color: Ranges from light yellow to greenish yellow.
Aromatic Description: This oil has a strong characteristic scent.
Common Uses: Moringa Oil is often used in massage blends for relaxing massages, including full body and head massages. It is reputed to induce sleep and instill a sense of calm and balance. When added to body scrubs and soaps, Moringa Oil helps optimize their cleansing and exfoliating properties. Moringa Oil's absorption of fragrance compounds makes it an ideal enfleurage foundation, which also makes it an ideal base ingredient for perfume formulations, such as those involving essential oils with floral, nutty, herbal, or spicy aromas.
Absorption: This oil absorbs easily into the skin and may leave a slightly glossy residue.
Note: This oil may solidify in colder temperatures. We recommend placing the bottle in a gently warm water bath, and changing the water frequently until it is back to its liquid state.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, dry, dark place out or direct sunlight). Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.
Cautions: None known.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.
