What is Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil?

Native to the southern United States and Central America, this vine flower has been used for traditional medicines for centuries. Today, it is often found in supplement and similar formulations to help combat anxiety and problems with sleep. When added to skincare products you will find it is due to its ability to soothe and heal burns and minor surface injuries to the skin. Although it may carry a number of antioxidant traits, research has shown it to not be as effective as other ingredients, such as vitamin C. It is, however, praised for improving the look and feel of those suffering from very dry skin thanks to its skin-soothing properties.

Side effects of Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil

This ingredient continues to be under research so ensuring you consult a doctor before applying it all over the skin to avoid side effects and irritation.
