Summer Skin Solutions with Moringa Oil

Summertime is all about enjoying The Great Outdoors. But with your summer adventures comes the potential for burns, bites, cuts, rashes and dryness, among other consequences for your skin. However, nature always has a solution. Your summer skin solvent is none other than Zokiva’s pure Moringa Oil!

From preventing and soothing ouchies, to improving the tone and quality of your skin, Moringa Oil is the perfect way to treat your family’s skin this summer.

Why Moringa Oil?

Moringa is one of the most unique plants in the world. With nearly 100 bio-nutrients, it nourishes the body with many of the crucial elements we need to survive. And if it can do that inside your body, just think what it can do for your skin!

Along with tons of vitamins – including powerful antioxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E – and minerals, all 20 amino acids required in your body, and rarely-found organic compounds, Moringa Oil contains important fatty acids that support cellular protection, growth and repair. In addition to enhancing moisture retention, Moringa Oil combats free radicals that damage skin, which causes a range of problems including disease and signs of aging.

For your skin, the largest and outer-most layer of your body, regeneration and rejuvenation is vital. Moringa Oil has 72% oleic acid content making it incredibly penetrable deep into your skin. As it heals, Moringa Oil bolsters skin cells, making each layer stronger and more resilient to potential summer scenarios.

The Best Summertime Uses of Moringa Oil

Because it contains vast nutrients, Moringa Oil is ideal for many summertime skin problems. Let’s start with the sun! Of course warm, bright weather is the signature of summer, but it also causes sunburn, heat rashes, oiliness and dryness. Fortunately, Moringa Oil can assist with each of these issue from both a preventative and healing perspective.

First, by arming cells with valuable nutrients, Moringa Oil helps prevent skin damage from sun exposure. Should you experience a burn or rash, Moringa Oil helps to quickly alleviate pain and repair skin so the problem spot dissipates rapidly. Plus, Moringa Oil helps balance the natural tendencies of your skin. If you typically get oily in the summertime, Moringa Oil works with your natural sebum oils to regulate production and keep pores clean. On the flip side, if you often find your skin dry in summer months, Moringa Oil is an excellent natural moisturizer, hydrating skin from deep underneath.

To that end, Moringa Oil is a wonderful age-defying solvent. It works hard to plump skin cells which can smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also leaves skin feeling supple and hydrated, not greasy like many other oils.

When your family is out and about in the summer, cuts, scrapes, bites, plant-induced rashes, and other issues are all-too-common. Moringa Oil can help reduce swelling, pain, itchiness, redness, soreness, and burning sensations, all while cleaning and healing wounds. Just a little dab on the problem areas every few hours can decrease healing time and help soothe discomfort.

Don’t get caught without Moringa Oil in your beach bag, medicine cabinet and travel backpack this summer. Zokiva’s 100% pure Moringa Oil is everything you need to take care of your summertime skin!

New Moringa Tea Blends

 Moringa Hibiscus Peppermint Tea Bags

 

Zokiva is thrilled to continuously offer the best superfoods Mother Nature has to offer. Sometimes the best creations come from two powerful forces joining together to make a superfood combination. That’s exactly what we’ve done with our new Moringa Tea blends. We’re proud to introduce our newest Moringa Hibiscus Tea and Moringa Peppermint Tea to our herbal tea selections.

Moringa is possibly the healthiest whole food on the planet. So it’s no wonder that blending this superfood with other tremendous herbs like ginger, hibiscus and peppermint yields a nutritional powerhouse and a flavor explosion. Now you can enjoy the benefits of Moringa and some of your favorite herbal teas with a sensational burst that will leave your taste buds craving more.

With nearly 100 bio-nutrients, Moringa stands out among the crowd of superfoods. It is a critical life-sustaining food in certain parts of the world thanks to its perfect combination of nutrients including a wealth of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, protein, fiber and other phenomenal phyto-nutrients. Moringa is known for providing a natural source of caffeine-free energy that can power up and push you through your day. It also fuels your muscles, heart, brain and many other essential organs and bodily functions. Moringa supports everything from improved mental clarity and memory, to physical stamina and endurance. Plus it is an excellent immune booster and has age-defying effects as well.

These extraordinary benefits of Moringa are only enhanced when they are combined with staples in the herbal tea category. Check out how each of our new Moringa Tea Blends can support your best health:

Moringa Hibiscus Tea: Tangy and sweet, this duo benefits just about every organ in your body. From blood pressure and cholesterol support, to liver protection and full body cleansing agents, Moringa Hibiscus Tea is a treat from the tip of your tongue to the tip of your toes. Plus, it is great for digestion and can quench your thirst when you need a refreshing and nutritious beverage without adding unnecessary calories.

Moringa Peppermint Tea: Relaxation and freshness are two words that should come to mind when you think of Peppermint Tea. That’s because peppermint helps release tension in blood vessels, like those that lead to headaches, and muscles, such as cramping in the intestines or uterus that cause indigestion, gas and menstrual cramps. The menthol ingredient in Peppermint Tea helps offer sinus relief and freshens breath. Peppermint is also a natural antimicrobial agent so it supports body cleansing, a stronger immune system and clearer skin.

Mix up your healthy tea habit with Zokiva’s new Moringa Blend Teas. With two new flavors to choose from, you’ll love the variety and diversity of nutrients that can spice up your life. Cheers!

Moringa Oil: The Skin-Loving Summertime Oil

A prized ingredient in skin care products and healing ointments, Moringa Oil is THE all-natural oil you need in your beauty drawer and your medicine cabinet. Today we’re sharing incredible reasons why Moringa Oil is a MUST-HAVE this summer:

Reason #1: Moringa Oil is Packed with Nearly 100 Phyto-Nutrients

Just as eating wholesome nutrients are important for your insides, nourishing your skin with nutrients is vital for the health of your skin, the largest organ of your body. Moringa Oil is among the richest oils on the planet when it comes to vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, antioxidants, zeatin, and many other skin-loving phyto-nutrients.

Reason #2: Moringa Oil has Phenomenal Healing Properties

Spending time outdoors this summer may have some unwanted side-effects for your skin. With Moringa Oil in your first aid kit to heal and soothe cuts, scrapes, rashes, bites and stings, you’ll be back in the sunshine in no time. Moringa Oil is also helpful for nasty sunburns by rapidly reaching deep into the epidermis to heal and refresh burnt skin.

Reason #3: Moringa Oil has Age-Defying Properties

Antioxidants help combat the negative effect of free radicals on cells. As cells enter oxidative stress, they become weak and decrease in performance. For skin cells, this results in an aged appearance, blemishes, discoloration and a change in skin texture. The extreme antioxidant content in Moringa Oil helps rejuvenate skin cells to reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles and a diminished skin tone.

Reason #4: Moringa Oil Cleanses and Protects Skin

Moringa Oil contains natural anti-microbial properties that help purify your skin and extract toxins that can cause blemishes. It also works with your skin’s natural oils to create a barrier against dirt and polluted particulates, as well as protect skin against sun damage.

Reason #5: Moringa Oil Moisturizes and Brightens Skin

The summer sun and dips in the pool or ocean can dry out your skin quickly. Keep it moisturized with Moringa Oil. As a daytime and nighttime hydrating oil, this incredible serum will clear up dry skin patches all over your body, leaving your skin softer and brighter this summer.

Reason #6: Moringa Oil Absorbs Quickly

Lotions and other oils can leave your skin feeling greasy or sticky, but not Moringa Oil. The oleic acid concentration helps it penetrate deeply and rapidly into your skin so it can work its natural magic in a flash and not leave an unpleasant residue.

Stock up on Moringa Oil for beautiful, youthful, healthy summertime skin!
