On top of its alluring aroma, frangipani oil has deep-cleansing properties and can boost the clarifying ability of shampoos and body washes. For this reason, plumeria is a go-to ingredient in the natural skincare industry, giving manufacturers the ability to offer top-notch cleansing power without the use of harmful chemicals.
Frangipani has a rich source of lignin, which is an organic polymer that binds cells together and provides structure which means it can keep skin supple and firm at the same time. The oil is also a growth stimulant and has antibacterial properties as well as antioxidants. Benzoic acid is one such potent antioxidant. It helps decrease tissue damage that results from chronic diseases.
The plumeria flower also contains glycosides (a sugar compound), which help support collagen – an important component of the skin’s connective tissue. Glycosides are often used in skincare preparations as they help promote the absorption of other ingredients. They even serve to hydrate the skin thanks to their unique ability to bond to water molecules.
