The Moringa Oleifera Tree originates in India but is cultivated around the world because of how useful it is. Aside from its white flowers being strikingly beautiful in full bloom, this exotic tree is packed with nutrients, minerals, Vitamin C and other antioxidants. From cooking to skincare, the oil produced from this tree has been used for centuries.
While it originally started building traction in the skincare community, Moringa oil is quickly making its way onto the ingredient list of haircare’s most popular and prominent brands. This dense, fatty oil has an earthy scent that’s 100% natural, making it that much more appealing to haircare connoisseurs.
