DISCOVER THE MARACUJÁNative of the Atlantic forest, the Maracuja, or passion fruit, is a fruit enjoyed by local communities, for its fresh and tangy taste. In the native Tupi Guarani language, its name, Murukuia, means the meal prepared in a calabash, in reference to the delicious seeds, and the skin of the fruit, bowl shaped. Traditionally known for its nutritional properties, this fruit, full of pulp and juicy seeds, is a real treat.
AN HARVEST FULLY MADE BY BRAZILIAN COMMUNITIES
The Maracuja growths on an elegant vine, with beautiful, colorful and majestic flowers. The Maracuja is often used for its beauty and its decorative capabilities, but its greatest strength lies in its pulp and its seeds that give a rich oil.
Once mature, the fruits are, for some, used to be sold at fairs or local markets, the rest is intended for the fruit juice industry. The seeds, not used for the juice, are then picked up by communities, washed and dried.
An emollient and fragrant oil is then extracted to be used in the Maracuja body products. The residue of seeds are also used in exfoliating shower gels and soaps. The use of the oil and seeds of the Maracuja in Natura Brasil products reduces then the waste of the fruit juice industry and contributes to enhance all parts of this crop, which represents an additional revenue for families of the brazilian communities.
THE VIRTUES OF MARACUJÁThe Maracuja is a real treasure: in addition to being a delicious fruit, its leaves and flowers are used in pharmacy and cosmetics industries because of the passiflorine properties, known for its calming natural assets. It is rich in vitamin C, fiber and iron. We use the oil extracted from the seeds of the fruit that is rich in omega 6 and who participates in the restoration and moisture of the skin. The Natura Brasil formulas enriched Maracuja oil have light textures and offer immediate hydration. The Maracuja crushed seeds used in the exfoliating products bring a sweet exfoliation, perfect for a daily use.
