There has been a current issue on the use of Moringa oleifera as a medicinal plant for curing many diseases. Oil was extracted from Moringa seed using Soxhlet extraction. The oil characterized was, used for cream formulation and Uv-visible spectrophotometer was used to carry out the antioxidant activity of the oil. The results showed that the oil had a percentage yield of 26.9%, specific gravity of 1.1827, Saponification value 187.5, Acid value 5.038620mg/KOH/g, free fatty acid 2.51mg/KOH/g, peroxide value not observed. The cream produced had a good moisturization and conformed to the standard. The antioxidant inhibition results of the free radical showed inhibition above average which was an indication of high antioxidant advantage. The oil was found to be good commercially, and its production and consumption is highly recommended.
