Rooted in tradition, backed by science.
We make skincare and wellness powered by the superfood moringa tree. Used for centuries in traditional herbal remedies, moringa has 92 essential nutrients and 46 antioxidants with research backed benefits for health and topical skincare.
Moringa leaves contain a complete vegan protein and have more iron than spinach, more protein than yogurt, and more calcium than milk.
Moringa seeds contain a highly nutritive, lightweight oil that compliments the skin's natural sebum to nourish dry skin, restoring balance, glow, texture, and tone, outperforming argan, jojoba, and shea.
eat well, feel amazing
Effortlessly boost your everyday nutrition & care for your skin from within with our Organic Moringa Powder.
Adding just one tablespoon of moringa powder to your daily diet (we’ll show you how easy it is!) adds as many nutrients as one full serving of vegetables.
Add a spoonful of protein-rich, nutrient-packed moringa to your breakfast bowls in the morning. Complimentary flavors and ingredients include dates, nuts, fruit, and cocoa.
Moringa is naturally filling, and adds a boost of nutrition to any fresh smoothie or powdered blend. Moringa mixes well with other leafy greens and fruit-based smoothies.
soups & sauces
Moringa has been used for centuries as a nutrient-rich base for savory sauces in a variety of African and Asian cuisines. Blend in tomato-based stews, vegetable soups, or add to pesto.
supercharge your skincare routine
Lightweight and instantly absorbed, cold-pressed moringa oil is a multitasking moisturizer that purifies and protects long after application.
Naturally rich in antioxidants to fight premature aging, oleic acid to combat dryness & deliver nutrients deep into the skin, and arachidonic acid to care for scarred and damaged skin, moringa is an entire skincare routine in a bottle.
care for scarred & damaged skin
Moringa oil's powerful plant hormones and fatty acids minimize the appearance of stretch marks and scars, leaving skin soft and well pampered.
daily facial moisturizer
Apply one pump of moringa oil to freshly cleansed face each morning and evening for baby soft, balanced, glowing and (most importantly) healthy skin.
painless makeup removal
Water-resistant mascara is no match for moringa oil! Alcohol-based make-up removers can be harsh and drying. Moringa oil is tough on makeup and impurities and gentle on the skin.
we make the purest moringa on the planet
A rocket scientist & an economist walk into a farm...
Meet our founders
Born and raised in Ghana, Kwami Williams is no stranger to the beautiful botanical wealth of Ghana. He grew up moisturizing with shea butter, cleansing with black soap, and feasting on his mother's famous stews and soups made with local vegetables and spices.
His family won the Diversity Visa lottery and immigrated to the US when he was eight, and By 2012, he was living the American Dream having graduated from MIT with a degree in aerospace engineering and starting a career at NASA when a mentor challenged him to return to his native Ghana.
When he finally did after over a decade in the US, he saw his home country and the superfood crops that surrounded him through new eyes - brimming with potential to create wealth for Ghanian farmers living on less than $2/day.
Much to his mother's chagrin (at first), he packed his two bags and moved back to Ghana, putting his engineering skills to work in a new way to build True Moringa's first factory by hand.
He teamed up with co-founder Emily Cunningham, a Harvard trained development economist who had worked in microfinance in India before studying affordable technology design at MIT's D-lab. They listened and learned from farmers, scientists, and herbalists who taught them about the incredible benefits of the moringa tree for health, for skincare, and for the climate.
Together, they set about building True Moringa with the mission of bringing the superfood botanicals of Ghana to millions of customers around the world in a way that achieves wellness for people and the planet.
5000 farmers. 3 million trees planted.
We envision a future in which all ingredients sourced by skincare and wellness brands provide transformative impact to the people and planet that produce them.
We take a three pronged approach to ethical production through our farming, manufacturing, and product development
OUR JOURNEY STARTS AT THE FARM...
Climate Smart Agriculture
Your skincare is powered by solar! Our farm is home to West Africa's largest solar-powered irrigation project. Moringa trees are drought resistant, require little water, and capture 20x the carbon of other vegetation. We use a regenerative agriculture approach to protect soil health and increase biodiversity.
LAND ACCESS FOR WOMEN & TRIBAL MINORITIES
Community members who typically lack access to land are allotted a plot on our farm and given access to irrigation, organic certification, agricultural training, and wrap around services like child care, scholarship funding, health insurance, and more. These programs increased womens' participation in lucrative tree crop farming from 0% to 40%.
Building Community Wealth
True Moringa Farmers organize themselves into small groups of 30 members to form Village Savings and Loan Associations - micro banks through which members learn financial literacy skills, save their earnings from their moringa farms, and lend to other members at low interest rates. For every $1 invested in VSLAs, $10 of community wealth is generated.
Award winning ingredients made with love in ghana
Too often, commodities are exported from developing countries and value-added processing done in the Western world. We create 50 jobs along our supply chain, and we're proud to have a 98% Ghanaian team based in Ghana where our moringa grows.
superfood powered formulas backed by science
Our award winning formulas are always vegan, paraben free, sulfate free, but they are also packed with superfood nutrients backed by science and centuries of local knowledge.
