Passion fruit is harvested from an evergreen vining Passiflora plant, and the fruit itself is a form of berry that grows on the vine. Passion fruit is cultivated in two varieties; the purple skinned Passiflora Edulis (when ripe) and Passiflora Flavicarpa, which appears naturally yellow. Both types are oval-shaped with leathery skin, plum-sized, and have juicy interiors with black (edible) seeds affording a sweet flavour with tart sourness in its taste.

Maracujá is Portuguese for Passionflower, and actually refers to a cousin of the Passion Fruit called Granadilla (Passiflora Ligularis). This fruit is larger than the Passion Fruit we are used to (about the size of a grapefruit), has larger seeds, and is sweeter without the tartness. Misnomer aside, these days Maracuja Body Oil simply refers to the exquisitely luxurious oil drawn from the smaller berries, and not the Granadilla kind.

Our organically crafted Passionfruit Seed Oil is Cold-Pressed from the tiny seeds of Passiflora Edulis, native to the lush South American rainforests in Peru. When extracted, the oil appears golden with the mild aroma of the passion fruit it is drawn from.

Maracuja Body Oil is an excellent emollient that is heralded for its light, non-greasy texture, rapid absorption and essential fatty acid composition (Omega-3 and Omega-6). The Linoleic Acid content keeps skin moisturized and is ideal for soothing dry, flaky skin and also inflamed acne prone skin. If you are a fan of Argan Oil but need something with even more emollient properties (skin softening), then this is the oil for you.

This oil is simply packed with nutrients. With its incredibly rich Vitamin C content, Passionfruit Seed Oil delivers an important nutrient for healthy skin growth. Maracuja Body Oil is also rich in protective antioxidants like the Lycopene Carotenoid. These nutrients battle the effects of sun damage (UV free radicals) and other environmental pollutants and stressors. Lycopene works with Maracuja’s natural Vitamin C content to even skin tone and promote collagen production for firmer, brighter, smoother skin and less visible wrinkles, reducing the signs of aging, making it brilliant for mature skin. Maracuja Body Oil’s anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties also helps to facilitate wound healing, by eliminating harmful bacteria. These same qualities help to prevent the onset of acne breakouts, addresses skin flaking, and promotes healthy skin regeneration.

As a result, Passionfruit Seed Oil is often also used for hair treatment, nourishing follicles by conditioning dry or damaged hair and moisturizing the scalp to combat dandruff. Being highly resistant to heat and oxidation, Passion Fruit Oil can also be used as a pre-styling treatment to protect the hair against straightening, curling, or blow-drying. Maracuja’s texture and protective properties contributes towards improved hair volume and sheen, while helping to reduce excessive natural scalp oiliness by bringing back balance to the underlying skin.

Hence, this oil is also a brilliant choice for those with oily or combination skin too, locking in moisture without leaving that heavy, greasy feeling that other oils often have as a compromise for accessing their skin nutrients.
