Moringa oil



The odorless, sweet-tasting Moringa oil (also called Behen oil) is obtained from the seeds of the fast-growing Moringaceae tree (Moringa oleifera), which originates at the foot of the Himalayas in India. It prefers a sunny location and is now also grown in the tropical and subtropical areas of Africa, Asia, South America and the Caribbean islands, where it is used as food and/or medicine. The Moringaceae tree is considered the most nutrient-rich plant in the world and is therefore also known as the “miracle tree”. Its nutrients are found in the leaves as well as in the seeds, pods, flowers and roots. The special property of the triangular seeds is their water-purifying effect, so that even a small amount of seeds is enough to filter contaminated water and convert it into drinking water. The cold-pressed oil from the seeds of this all-rounder is widely used in skin and hair care and is also popular as a massage oil.



Moringa oil contains, among other things: many vitamins (such as A and C) as well as numerous antioxidants (such as sulfur), valuable unsaturated fatty acids (such as oleic, palmitic, stearic and linoleic acid) and saturated behenic acid. These valuable ingredients contribute to the versatile properties of moringa oil. On the one hand, it stimulates the skin's regeneration process, is absorbed quickly and without leaving any residue and provides it with moisture. In addition to the regenerating effect, the oil also has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibacterial properties. The miraculous powers of moringa seeds also unfold their effect in our sports gel and help especially with joint pain after sport as well as rheumatic complaints.
