I first encountered Moringa in one of the The Body Shop products many years ago while I was in the UK and Moringa has stuck with me ever since. Fast forward to 2015 and two things happened. Firstly, our international raw material supplier listed Moringa Oil as a new product in its inventory and so I purchased it and stored it away for future product use.

            Upon returning to Trinidad, I shared some of the information with my staff and we discussed the benefits of Moringa and its potential uses in hair products. Once we realized that Moringa was also grown in Trinidad & Tobago, we were elated and added several plants to our garden. Moringa Oleifera is called the Miracle Plant and is a Super Food. The plant originated in the Himalayas and found its way to India, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.

             Some facts about Moringa includes: 10 times the Vitamin A of a carrot; 2 times the Vitamin C of an orange; 15 times the Potassium of a banana; 17 times the Calcium of milk; rich in chlorophyll; a good source of leafy green protein - containing 18 amino acids, 9 of which are the essential amino acids (histidine, isoleucine,leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, valine) that the body needs.

            Moringa Oleifera is incorporated in Cher-Mère INatural Hair products for natural hair because it has been used traditionally to promote healthy stronger hair; and is ideal for dry, itchy scalp. Cher-Mère INatural Moringa Hair Products are formidable products geared to nourish, protect, hydrate, strengthen and condition Natural hair.
