The Power of Moringa Seed and Coenzyme Q10

is extracted by pressing the seeds of Moringa oleifera tree, also called the Drumstick tree. This tree is native to the Himalayan foothills of northern India and cultivated throughout the tropics. Moringa Olifeira grows long pods which contain the precious seeds and once matured are processed into 'Ben Oil' or 'Behen Oil'.
The name derives from a very high content in behenic acid which helps the oil resist rancidity for a long period of time and is highly valued in perfumery for being able to capture and hold the most delicate scents.
In skin care it has remarkable properties because of its high monounsaturated oleic acid content, therefore very moisturising for dry and mature skin, yet does not feel oily. It protects the skin and is a very good anti-oxidant.
In Egypt it was used to make medicinal ointments and salves and to protect the skin from the desert environment. A daily skin treatment for wrinkles and sun damage combined gum of frankincense and ground Cyprus grass mixed with fermented plant juice. A venerated oil, vases of moringa oil were found inside ancient tombs.

I first heard about moringa oil a few years ago. It is in both the elemis skin bliss capsules and Emma Hardies moringa cleansing balm (both of which I've used previously). My skin responded very well to this ingredient and having tried the above serum (which is fab by the way), I'm happy to have access to it in a more affordable format. I love using oils/serums/balms on my very dry skin but oils can work well on every skin. The products are clearly labelled as to which are suitable for each skin type. Oils are getting a lot more press and people are getting more used to the idea of applying them, rather than just using moisturiser. Layering works really well for me and I really recommend others with very dry skin to also do so (face and body).
