Let's talk about Moringa Oil

Moringa Oil helps to improve the elasticity of the skin, which is great for wrinkles and fine lines

The versatility of the Moringa tree (Moringa oleifera) is quite impressive. It is native to Asia, growing among the Himalayan mountains, though it grows in many countries across the world now. For many years, people have utilized all parts of this tree for a multitude of uses. The bark of the tree, the leaves and flowers, as well as the seeds can all be used to promote health and wellness in various capacities. (Note: The root extracts are known to be toxic)

Moringa Oil used in some of you favorite Skinfood products is 100% organic, sourced from Haiti.

In regard to the skin, it is the oil from the seeds that we will cover in brief. The ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks used this oil for their skin, as an ingredient in perfumes, and used it as a moisturizer for the hair. As we can see, the use of this oil has been around for quite some time!


Moringa Oil contains vitamin A, C, and E

Moringa oil contains vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and has a high level of oleic acid (omega-9 fatty acid). These components on their own are beneficial to skin health, but to have them all together in this oil is quite convenient. In addition to providing hydration to the skin, this great combination helps to improve the elasticity of the skin, which is great for wrinkles and fine lines. The oleic acid works well in the fight against free radicals, is anti-inflammatory and does a great job of carrying your other “Skinfood” products deeper into your skin for intense nourishment.


Key Benefits

Moringa oil is a great over-all cleanser for the skin and serves a means to detox as well! It has been used to treat minor scrapes, cuts and burns on the skin. I consider it an “understatement” that moringa oil is an essential ingredient when using products to promote healthy skin. Here are a few attributes of this “miracle oil", (as it is sometimes referred to):

  • Anti-microbial
  • Anti-aging
  • Helps with acne
  • Skin rash
  • Emollient
  • May help to balance complexion (hyperpigmentation)
  • May help to minimize pores
  • Helps with dry skin


These are just a few among many of the qualities of moringa oil. One cannot be surprised that such a rich ingredient can be found in Donata’s Skinfood products. As we can see, there is great detail that goes into the process of choosing ingredients that go into the products. Equally important is the “quality” of the ingredient, which is why the moringa oil used in some of you favorite Skinfood products is 100% organic, sourced from Haiti. May you continue to be vigilant about what goes in, and on your body, and as always, may all continue to go well on your health and wellness journey!
