Sorry, turmeric. There’s a new superfood in town. Ladies, meet moringa oil—also known as “the miracle tree.” This tropical plant has been around for centuries but is making its way into beauty regimes (and diets) everywhere thanks to its moisturizing, nourishing and antioxidant powers. In some forms, it’s even known to be anti-aging (bless). Want to give it a try? Here are 12 buzzy products that will get you ahead of the curve.

bakel nutrifill moringa face cream

Nutrifill Moisturizing Facial Cream

Not only does this cream protect your skin from free radical damage (which, gasp, speeds up skin aging), the moringa seed oil also helps revitalize and retain moisture. Sounds like a youthful glow is in your future.

Bakel ($148)

ahava dry oil body mist

Dry Oil Body Mist

This energizing and subtle floral scent is designed to instantly boost your mood while replenishing your skin’s natural moisture with moringa seed oil. Who needs a spa day when you’ve got this?

Ahava ($43)

burts bees lipstick

Hydrating Lipstick

A lipstick that doesn’t fade or dry out? Count us in. Thanks to the moisturizing properties of moringa oil and beeswax, this berry-stained lipstick will condition your pout for eight hours straight.

Burt’s Bees ($9)

clarins exfoliator

Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

No skin-care routine is complete without a quality slough. Look to moringa seed extract to purify the skin (it’s a natural exfoliant) and preserve its moisture balance.

Clarins ($38)

chi rejuvenating hair mask

Rejuvenating Hair Mask

Argan oil might be the hero ingredient here, but it’s the little boost from moringa oil that really sets this mask apart. Plus, it requires only three to five minutes of your time so there’s no excuse not to use it.

Chi ($21)

estee lauder face cream
Saks Fifth Avenue

Revitalizing Eye Balm

Fine lines and wrinkles don’t stand a chance against this guy (remember what we said about moringa’s anti-aging properties?). If you feel like you could use some extra TLC, this product can also be used as a weekly eye mask.

Estee Lauder ($62)

fresh black tea mask

Age-delay Face Cream

Black tea extract and moringa seed protect against damaging free radicals and environmental aggressors. What’s more, you don’t need to have one specific skin type to be able to reap the benefits of this cream—it’s suitable for all.

Fresh ($90)

kiehls rehydrating shampoo

Damage Repairing And Rehydrating Shampoo

Do you chronically straighten your hair? Or maybe got a little too addicted to chemical treatments? Moringa tree oil, together with hydrating hyaluronic and ceramides, can help bring your strands back to life. Just use this fortifying shampoo (suitable for everyday use) to start repairing weak and brittle strands, all while gently cleansing.

Kiehl’s (from $8)

h20 sea salt body scrub

Sea Salt Body Scrub

We live for a good exfoliating salt scrub. But add in a touch of moisturizing moringa oil and a little sweet almond extract and we’re on cloud nine.

H2O+ Beauty ($18)

jane iredale highlighter

Luminous Highlighter

Moringa oil on its own is known to leave the skin with a natural glow, so when combined with a highlighter, it’s basically perfection.

Jane Iredale ($30)

osmosis blush

Pressed Cheek Powder

Want to deliver a flattering flush? Just look to this light-reflecting blush. (Yeah, we can rhyme, too.) As it illuminates and moisturizes your skin with moringa seed oil, it also works to reduce the appearance of imperfections as the green tea extra neutralizes free radicals.

Osmosis Colour ($27)

magical moringa lush

Magical Facial Moisturizer

The name holds true: This moisturizer truly is magic. Why? It brings together four powerhouse ingredients (rose hip oil, argan oil, moringa oil and shea butter) to prime and moisturize your skin. Just call them your little gang of superheroes.
