Moringa For Beauty

Africa’s influence grows with new beauty products

Thursday 7 Feb 2013 6:00 am

We are used to ingredients from around the world but, with beauty, Africa is now the hot spot, with lush, plant-derived oils and extracts reaching mainstream brands. Protein-rich baobab, from the baobab tree, is a key ingredient for skincare as it’s high in antioxidants, calcium, and vitamins C and A. Marula oil, from the tree of the same name, boasts higher antioxidant and omega-9 levels than argan oil, while nutrient-dense moringa leaves contain no less than 30 antioxidants.
