What is Moringa Oleifera Seed Extract?
Ancient herb used in Chinese traditional medicine for the many health benefits it possesses.
Use & Benefits:
The seed extract is high in vitamins C & E and minerals, which have high antioxidant abilities.
Antioxidants help to protect the skin from environmental aggressors. These environmental aggressors can range from UV radiation from the sun to polluted air with dirt and heavy metals. UV radiation will damage tissue cells by the free radicals it produces, these free radicals will break down collagen and elastin which are important proteins required for the health and structure of the skin. With a lack of these proteins, the skin begins to sag, become dull, sink, and won't be able to snap back. These are the common signs of aged skin.
Pollution is very high in big cities and the air can be filled with heavy metal particles. These particles and dirt will clog pores, and irritate the skin. This is a problem as it can cause acne.
