Moringa (Moringa oleifera) is a must have for dry skin due to its HIGH OLEIC ACID composition. I first learned of Moringa oil from the book, Liquid Sunshine: Vegetable Oils for Aromatherapy. The author, Jan Kusmirek, boasts Moringa as a carrier superior to coconut, squalene (from olive), and even our beloved jojoba wax. It has been used in anti-aging formulations because it resists oxidization and has a quick absorbing silky feel. It is a true liquid above 72 degrees (approximation), but will thicken to a pudding consistency and appear milky when cooled (as shown in the product images).
