Maracuja Oil helps to regulate the sebum level of the skin. This means it keeps the skin from becoming too oily or too dry. Loaded with antioxidants, the oil combats fine lines and wrinkles.
Maracuja is as versatile as it is effective. Use it as a stand alone moisturizer for your skin. You can also apply it prior to applying your moisturizing cream for an incredible effect. Don't worry, Maracuja absorbs really well and does not leave the skin oily. It is a common misconception that the use of a natural oil will create oily skin. Start small. Use a drop on each side of your nose and gently apply with smooth circular motion. Allow the oil to absorb and see if you need another drop or two. Once you determine the application rate, you will know how much your skin needs. Just wipe away any excess with a tissue.
Because of the incredible compounds within Maracuja Oil, it is also great for hair. Whether it is revitalizing the scalp or conditioning the ends of towel dried hair, Maracuja Oil can do it all. The best part is that is is 100% natural, with no toxic chemicals. To treat your scalp, apply several drops to the scalp before a shower and massage into the scalp. Allow the oil to penetrate for a few minutes, and then wash the hair as usual. For treating the hair shaft, towel dry your hair, add a few drops through the ends, and style as usual. Remember to start small and slowly build up to your optimum level. One or two drops to start.
