What are the traditional benefits of moringa oil?
Moringa has benefited mankind since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians used moringa in cosmetics, medicine and remedies for skin disorders. Moringa has also been used in India and Africa as a source of sustenance, providing essential nutrients and vitamins. In Senegal, moringa is called "Nebeday", which means "the tree that never dies", because of its ability to grow and survive in many conditions.
Moringa oil and moringa leaves are the latest trend in health and beauty. The leaves are sought after for their abundance of vitamins and antioxidants and the oil for its stability, functionality and rich emolliency.
Floralipids® Moringa Butter: a superior aesthetic profile butter for a healthy skin
Floralipids® Moringa Butter is the interesterification product of moringa oil with fully hydrogenated moringa oil. The result is a highly viscous, white to off-white, odorless paste that leaves a matte, dry and non-glossy appearance when applied to the skin neat. Although it has a higher melting point than skin temperature, it penetrates the stratum corneum to reduce trans-epidermis water loss (TEWL) thus retaining moisture in the skin.
This butter provides exceptional skin hydration and enhances barrier recovery. It has a rich, cushiony, silky, non-greasy skin feel and a matte appearance. It has been shown to increase hydration better than shea, cocoa or olive butters.
Floralipids® Moringa Butter is very stable compared to other cosmetic butters, with an excellent OSI of 170 hours at 110°C.
It is comparable to petrolatum in barrier function and is an excellent emollient for both skin and hair care formulations. Floralipids® Moringa Butter contributes to emulsion stability as it has excellent miscibility with other cosmetic lipids. In cosmetic formulations, this butter helps to build viscosity in creams and lotions and lends structure to balms and stick products.
