Moringa oil has been used by East African tribesmen for centuries. People have used it as a skincare ingredient since that time, and no one can quite agree on exactly how effective it is. Moringa is a type of seaweeds found in the African savannahs. It grows on the surface of rivers and lakes and has been used for many years by tribal people. They use it to soothe irritated skin, to strengthen the bonds of friendship, and as a face moisturizer.
Natural Astringent Properties- Face Moisturizer
Moringa oil has been shown to have natural astringent properties. These properties are essential to skincare products. A skincare product with astringent properties is needed to be able to penetrate deeply enough to work as quickly as possible. It is also important that the astringent properties are mild and not harsh so that the skin is not over-moisturized.
The natural oils in the leaves of the plant are a gentle exfoliant. They help remove dead skin cells and prevent future buildup, keeping the skin clean and well moisturized. These oils also contain essential vitamins that fight signs of aging.
However, you need to use Moringa oil in moderation, as it can irritate sensitive skin and cause skin irritation. If you have very sensitive skin, you should not use this oil.
Moringa oil is an effective moisturizer, but only if you mix it with a good skincare product. You should combine with glycerin and a natural emollient, such as plant oils, to make the product as gentle as possible. You should use sunscreens or sunscreen lotions to prevent sunburn.
Vitamin E- Face Moisturizer
Of all the oils from the moringa plant, the extract with the highest concentration of Vitamin E is the most effective. The Moringa oil is also most easily absorb through the skin’s upper layers.
If you are new to using Moringa oil, be sure to start out with a light amount and see how you like it. Slowly increase the amount of the oil you add to your regimen as you like to using it.
Look for a formulation with at least five percent Moringa oil and two percent Vitamin E. Since the oil has natural moisturizing properties, it can be in use in any product that needs to be moisturized. It is not necessarily a component of a facial moisturizer. If you want to use it to soothe and protect your skin, look for a formulation that contains either a skincare lotion or sunscreen lotion.
This traditional treatment can be in use alone or with other natural ingredients. For example, you could mix it with rosewater or aloe vera.
Another thing to remember about the oil is that it is not a particularly good antioxidant. Moreover, it does not provide much protection against free radicals. Other antioxidants can offer more healthful protection. In other words, if you are looking for a useful skin moisturizer, look for one that contains Phytessence Wakame, Coenzyme Q10, grape seed oil, and super seed oil.
Moringa oil can be a great addition to any skincare regimen, as long as you have a sunscreen and a little bit of oil to mix it with.
