It has outstanding moisturising and nourishing qualities.
Moringa oil is obtained from pressing the seeds of the Moringa Oleifera tree, which is native to the Himalayas in northwestern India. The oil is also known as “ben oil” or “behen oil,” because of the high concentration of behenic acid it contains. Behenic acid is a fatty acid that is poorly absorbed by humans, which makes moringa oil a poor choice for food preparation. The oil is, however, valuable in the cosmetic industry because of its moisturizing, cleansing and emollient properties. This type of oil is pale yellow in color with a flavor often described as mild and nutty. It is resistant to rancidity, which may be because it contains powerful antioxidants that act as natural preservatives. There have been claims from retailers that the oil will never turn rancid, but this is incorrect, as all vegetable oils will eventually spoil. Moringa oil is long-lasting, but its shelf life is only about five years
