Russell Organics Moringa Oil is harvested from the seeds of the Moringa Tree. The Moringa Oil, also known as Ben Oil (due to its high content of Behenic Acid), has been used for a variety of purposes through history dating back to ancient Rome and Greece. The primary use today is cosmetic application. The oil is harvested from the seed pod of the Moringa Tree. The pod is long and skinny, containing several seeds. These seeds are cold-pressed and the oil is then filtered. There are several species of Moringa Tree globally, but only the Moringa Oleifera genus is known as Ben Oil.
