In 2012 founder and agroforester Ben-Yam visited the most drought-stricken part of our island. Even in this arduous environment, the Miraculous Moringa tree grew strong. Known locally as El Árbol De La Libertad (Tree of Liberty), the Moringa tree provides shade, attracts pollinators, and holds the earth to avoid mudslides, while the leaves and seeds are packed with rich nutrients. It became clear to Ben-Yam that for the benefit of both people and the planet, more Moringa trees needed to be planted, and he set out to make a product that would create a demand for Moringa in rural communities.
The more Moringa trees are picked, the more flowers they produce. The more they produce, the more people will want to plant it, and the more we can give back to the farmers and earth who grow it.
Our core mission is to end deforestation by helping plant more trees and regenerate the soil we live on. Making nourishing and truly natural skincare is the means that allows them to fulfill this vision.
Moringaia is a family owned company.
