Moringa Seed Oil

Moringa Seed Oil

What it does: Soothe inflammation, balance oil levels (it’s very similar to skins’ natural sebum), boost radiance and deeply hydrate skin with Moringa Seed Oil. 

Sourced from: Moringa Oil comes from the seeds of the Moringa Oleifra Tree and is often found in Africa, Central and South America, the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Ours is grown in Uganda by a co-op of small-scale farmers.

Tiff says: As well as having skin boosting benefits in its own right, Moringa Oil also has strong antioxidant properties and is high in Vitamin E which makes it a natural preservative, meaning it naturally prolongs our products’ shelf life, preserving the incredible functions of our other ingredients in an entirely natural way.
