FSS Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract OS

*Oil Soluble

When we look to nature to provide our souls with nourishment, we are seldom disappointed. Being in touch with our natural environment suggests that we are in touch with our inner being. In many cultures, the symbolic wis­dom of a tree is representative of life and when translated into a skin application; our skin can take on a new life. Our protein-free FSS Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract OS provides beneficial conditioning properties to allow your skin the healing comfort that only a healthy and vital lifecycle can bring*.

Considered one of the world’s most useful trees by scientists who study plants for human nutrition, the moringa tree (Moringa oleifera) produces the multifunctional moringa seed. The moringa seed boasts high levels of pow­erful antioxidants such as Vitamin C, beta carotene, iron, and potassium and is uniquely suited for cosmetic ap­plications because of its botanical appeal. Vitamin C works as an antioxidant helping to free the body of radicals caused by lipid peroxidation, resulting in diminished signs of aging. Vitamin C and its derivatives are also useful for increasing collagen synthesis, which will help reinforce structural support allowing for anti-aging and anti-wrinkle benefits. The derivatives further enhance the skin by helping to erase spots and even skin tone where hyperpigmentation can result from structural damage. The body uses beta carotene by converting it to Vitamin A, which has been linked to reducing DNA damage in skin cells for a more youthful appearance. In addition to important vitamins, minerals such as iron and potassium also aid in cellular proliferation and differentiation. Iron is a supporting mineral that helps regulate fluid pressures within the skin. By balancing osmotic levels, we can help prevent cell shock resulting in decreased cell damage for a conditioned complexion. Proper potassium intake at the skin’s surface can further nourish dermal layers for proper collagen formation. A strengthened skin matrix provides increased barrier protection imparting a healthy, revitalized look.

Moringa tree derivatives have traditionally been used in Indian cultures for both culinary and medicinal applications where Ayurvedic benefits have been a welcomed mainstay. With an average height of 20 feet, a fully grown sapling can produce hundreds of pods spawning thousands of bountiful green seeds. The small edible pods are similar to green beans and taste like asparagus. Vir­tually every part of the plant is edible in either cooked or raw form. Commonly used as a treatment for malnutrition, the moringa tree has been hailed as the tree of life. Native to the southern foothills of the Himalayan region of India, almost every part of the exotic shrub maintains valuable properties.

As a survival mechanism, the shrub has adapted the use of important phytocom­pounds to withstand intense heat and prolonged sun exposure. A similar inher­ent protective mechanism can be translated to skin via the use of healing extracts of the plant source. To complement its medicinal uses, moringa plant materials have been used to rid the body of harmful byproducts for internal cleansing by traditional healers. Moringa is typically a fast growing tree and fruit bearing in its early life, the tree usually expires after 20 years. However, it can sprout new life quickly. The regenerative ability of budding compounds from within the roots and stems make the moringa seed an ideal ingredient for use in cosmetics designed to deeply condition the skin. Because our skin is in a constant state of renewal, it is imperative to replenish it with potent vitamins and minerals.

Just as a parched tree is refreshed after a rain, your skin can be equally drenched with thirst-quenching benefits de­signed to fortify your skin barrier. Renew the surface of the skin with increased protection from exposure to weath­ering elements with the help of the time-tested moringa seed. Experience FSS Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract OS for the dewy complexion that represents health at its finest, most natural incarnation.
