Emma Hardie and the Skin Benefits Of Moringa:
Just like healthy hair, Emma Hardie believes that the supply of nutrients is vital for the maintenance of healthy skin. Moringa is loaded with nutrients like calcium, vitamin A, B, C, D, E; minerals like copper, iron, zinc, magnesium, silica and manganese.
Moringa has moisturizing and nourishing properties and an excellent cleansing ability, which makes it an active ingredient in the much-loved Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. The ben oil, which is extracted from Moringa seeds, is often used to soften and soothe skin, which is why the skin feels nourished and not dry after cleansing with the Moringa Cleansing Balm.
Moringa has also been found to possess anti-ageing properties. The effect of free radicals on human skin causes the appearance of wrinkles and makes the skin aged and less resistant to lines. Moringa has excellent cleansing ability, which aids in cleaning the skin cells of free radicals and restoring the vitality and youthful complexion of the skin helping Emma Hardie customers to look younger naturally.
Moringa leaves contain about 30 antioxidants that contribute greatly towards healthy skin. Moringa oil is highly absorbable and hence helps in delivering these powerful antioxidants to the skin cells.
Moringa leaves also contain sulphur. Sulphur is a mineral that is present in every single cell of the body and is the key ingredient for Collagen and keratin. Collagen is an elastic substance that gives flexibility and softness to the skin and keratin is a rigid substance, which gives the skin rigidity and strength. These two substances form the majority of skin tissue and are made up of proteins constructed from sulphur.
The seed extract of Moringa herb is probably the most popular ingredient in Emma Hardie Skincare, due to its therapeutic skincare benefits and skin purifying properties. It possesses the ability to filter out impurities that are deeply rooted within the skin and has an amazing detoxifying and rejuvenating properties. It enhances the fairness of skin by balancing the natural skin colour and tone.
Lastly, Moringa seed extract is used in protective creams and has the ability to provide protection against cigarette smoke and heavy metal pollution. It is a powerful cleaning agent, hence why Emma Hardie has used the Moringa ingredient, not only in the famous Moringa Cleansing Balm, but also in many of the other products in the Emma Hardie Skincare range.
