True Moringa
Designer Story
True Moringa's story begins more than 100 years ago in Ghana, where the Moringa tree became famous among local farmers for the extraordinary nutritional and healing properties of its leaves. So impressed were they with this plant that it quickly became known as "the miracle tree."

True Moringa's story begins more than 100 years ago in Ghana, where the Moringa tree became famous among local farmers for the extraordinary nutritional and healing properties of its leaves. So impressed were they with this plant that it quickly became known as "the miracle tree."

Even so, much of its value remained elusive. In particular, its seeds contained one of nature's finest cosmetic oils with unique anti-aging and moisturizing properties that were difficult to extract and lacked a mass market for farmers to access.

Enter True Moringa co-founders Kwami (MIT Aerospace) and Emily (Harvard Economics).Combining their expertise in engineering and business development, the pair created a proprietary extraction system to preserve the crucial fatty acid structures and established the supply chains to put smallholder farmers on the map of the global market.

The result is True Moringa, a clean beauty line powered by 100% pure cold-pressed moringa oil using only the smartest, most effective ingredients nature has to offer.

Q+A
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE? 

We do a lot in the way of consumer education around moringa oil and natural products. There's so much nonsense and greenwashing going on in the industry, it's hard to cut through it all to reach conscious consumers. The US market is slowly learning the benefits of using moringa oil for hair and facial care...
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT CREATING TRUE MORINGA? 

We take great pride in being intimately involved with every step of the production process, both to ensure that we are producing the highest quality product and the most holistic ethical supply chain. We spent nearly two years developing our one-of-a-kind miniaturized processing system and our handbook of best agricultural practices, and both are evolving all the time. Through our intimate understanding of the communities and the farming families with whom we work, we are able to create the highest quality natural oil on the market.



WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE? 

We do a lot in the way of consumer education around moringa oil and natural products. There's so much nonsense and greenwashing going on in the industry, it's hard to cut through it all to reach conscious consumers. The US market is slowly learning the benefits of using moringa oil for hair and facial care, although many people are still hesitant to try an oily on their hair or face because they aren't used to dry oils that absorb quickly and nourish the hair and skin without leaving a greasy afterfeel. We're quickly making converts! :)  



WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START? 

There are so many incredible underutilized and undiscovered natural botanical plants thriving throughout the tropics. As we expand our line, we want to bring these amazing products to conscious consumers worldwide in a responsible way—creating new jobs for organic smallholder farmers throughout West Africa and beyond. At our core is the idea of beauty through truth and simplicity. We want to inspire women to look and feel their best in their own skin and convince them that they can achieve this simply by providing their hair and skin with the nutrients they need naturally.
