Pure Passion Fruit Oil (Passiflora edulis)
Passion Fruit Oil, Passiflora incarnata, also known as Passion Fruit Oil or Maracuja Oil.
Passion Fruit Oil is full of nutrients that are good for skin. Among these are vitamins A and C essential fatty acids, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, and carotenoids. When all these goodies work together, here’s what you get:
Anti-aging: Because of the high vitamin C and antioxidant content, Passion Fruit Oil helps slow the damage that leads to the appearance of aging, and also helps preserve collagen and elastin, which keep skin looking firm and youthful.
Rejuvenating: Passion Fruit Oil is also a great source of vitamin A in the form of carotenoids, which is critical for cell growth and repair. A number of phytochemicals in the Oil help the body produce vitamin A, which also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Plumping: A high content of fatty acids like linoleic and oleic acids “feed” the skin what it needs to maintain its structure, keeping skin smooth and plump looking and helping to fend off the appearance of fine lines.
Hydrating: This Oil is light and non-greasy, and the skin drinks it up quick. It’s the perfect moisturizer for all skin types, and works well for acne-prone skin as well because of its non-clogging moisturizing action.
Calming: Like most plant-sourced ingredients, Passion Fruit Oil has an anti-inflammatory property. This may also help reduce swelling and irritation.
This Oil can also be used as a massage Oil helping to ease the pain of arthritic joints and muscle pain.
Applying this Oil to the scalp is reported to help a variety of concerns from dandruff, itchy scalp, dry scalp and dry, damaged hair. An application to the cuticles of Maracuja Oil helps alleviate dry cuticles and also helps strengthen weak, fragile nails.
Most Carrier Oils are unscented or lightly scented and don't interfere with an essential oil's therapeutic properties. They may be used alone or with other oils to nourish your skin.
