Our moringa peptides come from Moringa pterygosperma, a drought-resistant tree (also known as the "tree that never dies") native to tropical and subtropical regions in Africa and South Asia that has been used for centuries to produce “behen oil” for cosmetic and medicinal ointments.
Moringa seed has long been known to have purifying properties and is used in developing countries as a biodegradable, environmentally-friendly water purifying agent. Applied topically, moringa peptides act as a skin purifying and anti-aging compound by trapping particle pollution and making it easy to remove. By stopping toxins and pollutants from entering the epidermis, they prevent damage to epidermal DNA, skin tone and elasticity.
