Maracuja oil is extracted from the flower and seeds of the Passiflora edulis fruit, popularly known as the passion fruit. This pure oil is a rich source of vitamins, anti-oxidants, and minerals that spell good news for the skin, such as:
* Vitamin A
* Vitamin C
One of the things that stand out about maracuja oil is the amount of essential fatty acids it contains. It contains nearly 80% linoleic acid. The human body cannot synthesize this omega-6 fatty acid from food components. This makes maracuja oil even more potent when it comes to hydrating the skin.
Apart from linoleic acid, maracuja oil also contains oleic, stearic, and palmitic acids, making it an excellent moisturizer. These essential fatty acids can also alleviate the irritation and inflammation caused by conditions like acne and rosacea.
