Moringa Benefits in a Body Balm

The skin is your body’s protective coating, the first layer of defense against germs and the weather. It plays an important role in regulating body temperature, and the nerves contained within the layers of the skin are how we feel and touch objects. In fact, skin-to-skin contact is a fundamental part of being human, and it even plays a vital role in the development of infants and young children. Caring for your skin means caring for your body’s largest, fastest-growing organ. What we apply to our skin can impact overall health. So, it is important to choose products that have the best, most nourishing ingredients, just as it is crucial to avoid products that contain harsh chemicals and allergy-causing additives.  The VG Wellness Moringa Body Balm is a luxurious, whole body moisturizer. Moringa balm utilizes the healing powers of the moringa plant to nourish dry, cracked, damaged skin and restore it to health. The 100% natural formula protects your skin from the elements and seals in moisture. Read on to find out how moringa benefits your skin when applied as a balm!

What does body balm do?

Lotions, creams, and body balm are all types of moisturizers that contain emollients. What is an emollient? An emollient is an occlusive agent that coats the skin, fills in cracks with lipids, and keeps moisture in. You might be surprised to find out that moisturizer and emollient are not the same things. Emollients are typically an ingredient found within moisturizers. A moisturizer adds hydration to the skin, and an emollient keeps the moisture in, retaining hydration. By keeping moisture in the skin and creating a barrier, emollients work to soothe and protect the upper layers of the skin. 

The top layer of the skin is prone to dryness, and those skin cells shed regularly. The shedding is entirely normal and healthy. But sometimes skin can become too dry from dehydration, exposure to harsh weather, or lack of an occlusive agent and moisturizer applied to its surface regularly.The difference between a balm, cream, and lotion is consistency and thickness. Balms are dense, typically waterless products. Temperature affects balms: at room temperature, a body balm can almost be solid, depending on the ingredients present in the product. Apply it to your skin and your body temperature will warm and melt the product.

Moringa Benefits in a Body Balm

Why put moringa into a body balm at all? Moringa oleifera is a plant originally grown in southern Asia and Africa. Extracts from the moringa plant, along with oil pressed from its seeds, have been used for food, health, and beauty for centuries. Research on moringa oil is confirming the incredible value of its use for skincare and topical treatments. 

Vitamin A is essential for the skin and moringa is full of this important micro-nutrient, a vitamin that has benefits when consumed in food and when applied topically. Vitamin A increases the pace of skin cell renewal and collagen production, which is great for breakouts and evens out skin tone. Moringa oil also contains high amounts of vitamin E, a moisturizing antioxidant that combats the harmful effects of environmental pollution. The antioxidant properties of Vitamin E also help to maintain the shelf life of moringa oil, acting as a kind of natural preservative. The high vitamin C content of moringa oil is excellent for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and in helping with the overall radiance of the skin. 

Numerous parts of the moringa plant are rich in fatty acids. The seeds have especially abundant stores of Omega-9, which is also known as oleic acid. Oleic acid is widely used in skincare products because it is an excellent and effective cleansing agent, non-drying as it removes dirt from the skin. 

Moringa Body Balm Ingredients

There are only six ingredients in our body balm: moringa oil, coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, arrowroot powder, and lavender essential oil. We leave synthetic chemicals, preservatives, and fragrances out of all of our products. 

The six ingredients in our moringa balm are formulated to synergistically deliver a combination of ultra-moisturizing nutrients to the places on your body that need it most.

  •  Moringa oil and Coconut oil have been used for centuries to moisturize and heal dry, cracked or damaged skin. 
  • Shea butter is a luxurious nut butter that is easily absorbed and utilized by the skin.
  • Beeswax naturally seals these ingredients into your skin by forming a breathable protective layer on your skin that allows your body to retain more of its own moisture.
  •  Arrowroot is used in traditional medicine to treat skin ailments.
  • Essential lavender oil is thought to help heal minor cuts, burns and other skin ailments like eczema, dermatitis, and even dandruff.

Directions for Using Moringa Body Balm

Apply a small amount to the area you wish to treat. We recommend applying Moringa Body Balm on any dry patches, chapped lips, and cuticles. The product also works great on areas prone to dryness and thick skin, such as the elbows, feet, knees, and hands. You will see that the warmth of your skin melts the body balm, allowing for easy absorption within a few minutes. Use Moringa Body Balm at any time, on any part of your body that needs some extra moisture. You can even use a very small amount of product on dry, frizzy hair!
