Moringa Oil is a powerhouse ingredient that has endless uses for the skin. We have been loving learning more about Moringa Oil and how it can help our skin. This week in the blog, we are going to be taking you through the ins and outs of moringa oil, as well as how it works collaboratively in our Be Smooth All-In-One Balm with the help of Dr. Hadley King, a New York Based dermatologist who has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, Women’s Health, Refinery 29, and many other publications.
What is Moringa Oil?
Moringa Oil is an oil that is derived from the moringa plant and is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids. This nutrient dense plant has seeds that contain approximately 40% oil, which leaves behind a smooth texture on the skin with its emollient and hydrating qualities.
Moringa Oil Benefits
Moringa oil has several benefits, such as helping to support the skin barrier, helping condition the skin, helping with fine lines and wrinkles, and helping to even out skin tone. We reached out to award winning, New York based dermatologist Dr. Hadley King to see what she has to say about the versatile moringa oil. See what she said below:
“Moringa oil is 40% monounsaturated fatty acids, with 70% of that being oleic acid. This makes it great for supporting the skin barrier, which seals in hydration and protects us from environmental stressors. This means that it is a good moisturizer and beneficial for dry and sensitive skin. Moringa oil is also similar to the oil naturally produced by our skin, which means that it can help to balance all skin types without being greasy.”
Where Can I Find Moringa Oil?
Moringa oil is one of the standout ingredients in our Be Smooth All-in-One Balm. This balm helps to address signs of aging on the face, neck, décolleté and hands with hydrating essential oils, the powerful peptide matrixyl synthe’6, and the standout ingredient of moringa oil. Because moringa oil is so versatile, Be Smooth has the same effect.
What Are Some Benefits of Be Smooth All-in-One Balm?
Be Smooth helps to increase skin’s firmness and helps diminish the appearance of deep-set lines and wrinkles. The All-in-One Balm also helps smooth away dry patches on the skin and condition cuticles for all around softer, smoother-looking skin.
