Industrial oils, on the other hand, undergo extensive refining. This turns the oil into a standardized product in terms of color, smell, flavor, and composition—a pale shadow of what moringa oil can and should be. In the process, the free fatty acids of the oil, which are essential to its healing powers, are typically neutralized by the use of corrosive chemicals (such as sodium hypochlorite), and further destroyed through deodorization and sterilization.
To optimize yield, industrial oil often undergoes various treatments with chemical solvents such as acetone, alcohols or even benzene & hexane (hydrocarbons); this mixture is then separated to recover the oil.
