The Magic Moth Beans That Keep on Giving Moth bean, AKA Vigna Aconitifolia extract, is a natural wonder that rejuvenates your skin without costing the environment. 

This natural alternative to retinol is the new strong yet gentle giant in skincare. 

“It boosts the functionality of the dermal and epidermal layers of your skin, and its antioxidant properties—from caffeic acid, ferulic acid, cinnamic acid, and kaempefrol—help to repair damaged skin.”

        - Susanne Norwitz, founder of skin-care brand Maya Chia.

The Magic Effects of Moth Beans 

Moth beans pack a mighty punch to toxins and pores whilst also being sensitive to the skin. These magic beans work as a botanical retinol, rich with antioxidants and nutrients that boost collagen production and cell renewal. Moth bean nourishes and restores your skin, giving you a youthful glow by slowing the effects of aging.

Synthetic retinol, a supplement for vitamin A, can cause redness and damage delicate skin. It makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight as it degrades in UV light. In contrast Moth bean is a legume, not a vitamin A derivative. It contains phenolic compounds such as caffeic acid, cinnamic acid, ferulic acid, kaempferol which protect you from radicals and UV rays resulting in healthier and brighter skin. 

In other words, Moth bean is a skincare ingredient that is in it for the long haul, strengthening your skin over time and protecting it from the outside world. Its highly nutritious properties also show immediate results, restoring and balancing blemishes and aging in the skin. 


These beans not only rejuvenate, replenish and revitalise your skin but are also restorative to our planet. Indigenous to India, the Moth bean is known as the most drought tolerant legume, retaining soil moisture and flourishing with very little rain. This means that we can reap the rewards of Moth beans without draining the earth’s natural resources. It is no surprise then that this durable little bean can also make our skin more resistant to the outside World.
