The Power of Moringa Seed and Coenzyme Q10

A busy lifestyle, sun, and other factors all take their toll on our skin and advancing into middle age might sprinkle a few more wisdom and laughter lines onto our faces and of course it also depends on genetics. 

There are numerous wonderful ingredients which support you in your quest to achieve a balanced, healthy and firmer looking complexion.
One of those great ingredients is Moringa Seed Oil.

Moringa Seed Oil 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 most people over fourty Coenzyme Q10 levels start to sink, resulting in a lesser ability to produce collagen and other important skin molecules. 
Coenzyme Q10 has exceptional antioxidant properties. Studies have shown that topical application can effectively counteract free radical damage and provide protection against UVA-induced depletion of cell membrane.
''This function helps to prevent damage to collagen and elastin production process and help to reduce the signs of ageing and appearance of wrinkles.''

There are different ways to look after your skin, whether it is through lifestyle changes or using specific products like our award winning vegan Moisture Boost Serum with Moringa Seed and Coenzyme Q10 which can give you that bit of extra care.
A luxurious, tried and tested Face Serum with a silky texture. It contains high performance natural ingredients to help plump, boost collagen production and exceptionally nourish your skin.

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).
