PASSIFLORA EDULIS

The layperson term for this Brazilian-based plant oil is passion fruit, and itŠ—Ès not a miracle of nature that addresses all kinds of skin concerns. Rather, itŠ—Ès just one of many good plant oils to improve the look and feel of dry skin. Passion fruit oil has documented skin-soothing properties. ξItŠ—Ès also a source of lycopene, and antioxidant common to tomatoes. There is no research indicating passion fruit oil is a good source of vitamin C, though it does contain several antioxidant compounds.
