Allow us to introduce moringa, a plant which comes from the drumstick or horseradish tree! It has been regarded as a miracle ingredient around the world due to its plentiful nutrients. “Moringa is rich in protein and contains all nine essential amino acids, as well as minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium, as well as vitamins A and C,” says nutritionist Stephanie Middleberg.
Moringa oil has become a popular ingredient in topical beauty and skincare products, particularly in anti-aging creams and moisturizers. “Laced with high amounts of antioxidants, it helps the skin by scavenging and quenching free radicals, which accelerate aging,” says dermatologist Francesca Fusco. “It’s a good source of amino acids and beta-carotene (which is a derivative of vitamin A)."
