What is moringa?

A secret which has always been known

Moringa oleifera is original from the Indian Sub-continent and nowadays it is spread in the tropical area of the planet earth. For centuries, it was considered a traditional remedy for skin diseases, respiratory and digestive system disorders and an important ingredient for the preparation of foods. Peasant families often grew one or more trees to respond to their daily consumption.

Unique in the world

All parts of the plant are eatable, from the leaves to the roots, including seeds and flowers. The leaves contain 18 amino acids, all those required for necessity, 46 antioxidants e more than 90 nourishing substances among vitamins and minerals. By including twice the amount of proteins than those contained inside the eggs, 14 times the calcium of the cow milk, 4 times the vitamin A of the carrots, 7 times the vitamin C of oranges, twice the potassium of bananas, it is possible to say that moringa is the only plant with these properties. More over the oil which is extracted by its seeds is precious, particularly rich of antioxidants, vitamins and oleic acid (even 72%). Thanks to its moisturizing, nourishing, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, it takes natural care of skin and hair.

Our method

We strongly believe in the added value of our project: the entire production process is settled in Madagascar by mainly hiring young and female operators. So, we support the local economy while the distribution all over the world is driven by the fair trade movement.

Who are the producers?

As a choice, Moringa Wave does not own lands or plantations. Thanks to the ONG support, we selected small cooperative of producers that sell us their product. Together with them, we started a training program about moringa natural growing methods without the use of chemicals.

We provide the necessary equipment to let each producer work at his/her best. And of course, we operate under a tight local quality control system, even before the harvest and through all the natural transformation steps that bring to the packaging phase.

Social impact

In addition to the support of the local economy, we focus on a series of educational activities on both Madagascan producers and consumers in synergy with the National Department of Nutrition (ONN), which manages all the programs about nutrition. We facilitate the creation of the income-generating activities inside the rural communities, without removing their traditional plantations. In collaboration with our partners, we are committed to solve the malnutrition problem by providing meals based on moringa inside the schools.
