Plumeria has been all the buzz lately as a natural cleanser and overall amazing ingredient. But what is Plumeria?
Plumeria is a member of the Apocynaceae family or dogbane. Some may know it as as frangipani, and it’s found throughout, the Caribbean, Central America, and areas with similar tropical climates. Plumeria’s scent is widely popular for its exotic, strong fragrance. Its floral scent lasts incredibly long, making it really a popular addition to lotions, perfumes and skin creams.
Plumeria for your skin
On top of its attractive aroma, frangipani/plumeria has deep-cleansing properties that can boost the expounding ability of body washes and shampoos. For this specific reason, plumeria is a go-to ingredient in the natural skincare industry, giving producers the capability to offer top-notch cleansing power without the use of harmful chemicals.
Anti-inflammatory: plumeria oil is believed to heal external inflammations when applied topically. These include superficial scars, minor wounds, irritations and sun damage.
Antioxidant: the oil protects the skin from the oxidation process that makes skin aging a lot faster than predetermined by the genes.
Soothes dry skin: plumeria is a very potent moisturizer that deeply penetrates the skin reducing dryness.
Relaxes muscles and nerves: when used as a massage oil or in bath water as a soap, plumeria really soothes deep in your skin. The aroma also refreshes senses and helps create a calm and soothing feeling that relaxes not only the skin but your mind as well.
Aphrodisiac: by soaking in a plumeria bath or using a plumeria soap for at least 30 minutes it is believed to stimulate senses.
Astringent: the oil is a natural astringent and can be safely used instead of synthetic astringents, which dry out skin.
Purifies the skin: plumeria oil is an effective skin purifier. It removes excess grime without reducing skin moisture.
Defies the aging process: continual use makes the skin resistant to wrinkles caused by aging and oxidation.
So why Plumeria?
If we had to choose only one reason to love plumeria, it’d be the fact that it gives health-conscious individuals a safe, natural and beautifully scented alternative to chemicals in their skincare products. The antioxidants, lignin and collagen-boosting glycosides? Those are pretty great, too.
