Moringa seed oil comes from the seeds of an incredible tree originally native to the foothills of the Himalayas. Moringa oil is incredibly light, spreads easily on the skin and is readily absorbed. It’s high in antioxidants that make the oil useful for preventing and reversing skin damage, and its fatty acid profile is similar to that of olive oil. It takes approximately 500 Moringa seeds to produce 1 oz (29.6 mL) of cold pressed oil. This means it takes approximately 35 mature seed pods to produce 1 oz of oil! Now you know why cold pressed Moringa oil can cost as much as $10/oz for small quantities!
