Moringa proteins, the super-food of natural cosmetics
Sometimes it is amazing to note how many of the most effective resources and tools of modernity are the result of the careful analysis of traditions and ancient cultures.
This is the case of moringa, the new rising star within the skincare scenario, whose extraordinary anti-aging and anti-pollution qualities have long been known to the beauty sector and successfully used in many innovative formulas.
Already five thousand years ago, the leaves of moringa (of which there are 13 different species, though the more important and used is the Moringa oleifera) found common application in Ayurvedic medicine to purify the body and as a protection against bad illnesses and seasonal ailments.
Historically attested in the sub-Himalayan regions of India and Pakistan, Moringa oleifera is a tree particularly resistant to drought, indeed capable of growing very quickly up to reaching 12 meters in height. Properties due to its endogenous characteristics – it is, in fact, a plant with incredible nutritional values: just think that it contains more calcium than milk, more vitamin C than oranges and more vitamin A than carrots, not to mention the extraordinary supply of essential nutrients such as sodium and potassium. For this reason it is defined by many scientists as one of the most nutrient-rich plants on the planet.
Features that certainly could not leave us indifferent in the creation of the revolutionary formula of Unica 4K (LINK HOME ). The moringa proteins are a key active ingredient in stimulating the process of purification and rejuvenation of the skin: in addition to the above-mentioned vitamins, Moringa is also rich in fatty acids that brings an intense moisturizing action, as they are able to retain moisture in the skin, contributing significantly to the correct nutrition of dry and dehydrated skin.
Above all, moringa proteins help to cleanse the face thoroughly, minimizing the presence of those polluting particles that determine or accelerate skin aging. It is no coincidence that moringa is currently used in many rural areas, especially in regions marked by drought, to purify water and make it suitable for domestic use or for consumption.
The moringa proteins, in fact, push the polluting particles present in the skin (as well as in the water) to aggregate on the surface of the skin, causing their natural detachment or elimination during rinsing: a process facilitated by the specific proteins enclosed in the moringa seed, whose positively charged peptides attract impurities, which instead have a negative charge, simplifying their identification and disposal process. Rich in amino acids, the moringa proteins are also able to repair and sustain the cells of the body, strengthening the immune system of the skin and stimulating the natural detoxification of the metabolism.
In the innovative formula of Unica 4K, the action of this already incredible natural super-food is further enhanced by the synergistic action of other active ingredients. The presence of natural ingredients with similar or complementary characteristics (such as moringa, cannabis sativa and the unsaponifiable of olive) means that the action of moringa proteins invests the skin with an overall regenerating, anti-aging and elasticizing, going to naturally smooth wrinkles and other skin imperfections, for a healthy, relaxed and radiant face.
