 What is Maracuja?

Native to Brazil, but commercially cultivated in hot areas since India to Peru, this  typical fruit from the tropics, is widely known on the areas it is cultivated for its great pulp great taste.

The Maracuja pulp is made into juice and bottled and is largely commercialized to make smoothies, tarts, liqueurs, ice-creams and all sort of desserts.

Until recently, after the juice extraction, the seeds were discharged.  Today mostly of Maracuja oil comes form the washed and dried seeds after juiced than are cold-pressed to extract one of the most extraordinary oils for cosmetic industry.

Lately Maracujá oil has become a so desirable ingredient for its infinite properties, that today a few companies started extracting a prime Maracujá oil only availabe during the starting of harvesting season.

This Prime Maracujá oil is obtained by cold pressing the pull and seeds, than the oil is separated from the juice by centrifugal and decanting. This Maracujá oil retains a highest level of Vitamin C, present mostly on the pulp of the fruit. This prime Maracujá oil is available in very limited quantity due to the fact of the fresh fruit is harvested only twice a year.

If you like Maracujá oil you must try it raw, unrefined, just straight from the pressing machine. The refining process destroys  the color and the scent, main source of the oil's goodness such  vitamin C - one of its most beneficial phyto-nutrient. (VITAMIN C - one of the few vitamins that is destroyed by heat.)

The scent of pure unrefined Maracujá oil is divine.  Citric and floral at the same time. Beautiful oil.

If you buy Maracujá oil with plain color of ordinary oils, and also has no peculiar citric/floral scent, means that the your Maracujá oil is refined and carry no benefits of Vitamin C. 

Maracujá oil is one of the most amazing oil for using direct on the skin, as face oil, massage oil, relaxing and calming, as well for bringing shine and silkiness to the hair.   

Unrefined Maracujá oil is a rich source of vitamin C, calcium, iron, phosphorus and it is exceptionally rich in linoleic acid (75%) with soothing, moisturizing and nourishing properties. It is non-comedogenic oil easily absorbed by the skin.

It is extraordinary oil for adding an extra touch of smoothness to that handmade soap or cream intended to moisturizing and nourishing the skin.

Maracuja oil can be used either plain or scented with essential oil as a massage and moisturizing oil, for anti-aging creams, lip balms, soaps. Your imagination and creativity is the limit. Have fun experimenting.
