What Is Moringa Oil?
"Moringa seed oil is an oil that comes from the moringa plant found in the
Himalayan mountains," says Zeichner. "The oil is rich in omega fatty acids and
antioxidants, which soothe and protect the skin." The antioxidants act as
natural preservatives, making it a stable oil resistant to rancidity, and
allowing for a longer shelf life. The seeds of the moringa tree are also high
in oleic acid, another fatty acid, at 73%, which gives it additional beneficial
properties we'll discuss later on. It's also nutrient-dense, high in
palmitoleic and linoleic acids, and contains vitamins A and C as well.

Moringa oil is extracted from the seeds of Moringa Oleifera, also known as the
Drumstick Tree. Moringa Oil is also called "Ben Oil" due to its high amounts of
Behenic Acid. Ben oil has many uses and it is found as an ingredient in hair
care products, massage oils, lip balms, lotions, deodorants and soaps. This
wonderful oil is one of the most exotic and highly sought out of all the
world’s many oils.
