Moringa Seed Oil - 30 mL
Each 30 mL bottle of our nourishing anti-aging serum is derived from about 1,000 hand-selected moringa seeds grown sustainably on our farm in Kona, Hawaii. We ensure superior quality by meticulously controlling every step of the process from growing to harvesting to formulating. Our process begins under our feet with nutrient-rich compost created on our farm. We tend to our trees organically and cold-press the seeds to retain their natural benefits. We make all of our artisanal formulations by hand in small batches to ensure the highest quality for you.
All of our products are safe, non-toxic and vegan. They are formulated without parabens, phthalates, petroleum, synthetic fragrances or color.
