This plant-based fruit extract is used in skin care for its analgesic and soothing properties, as well as its therapeutic antimicrobial and antibacterial actions. In addition, coccinia indica fruit extract is an antioxidant, which helps reduce free radical damage. The easiest way to sum that up to is say it helps balance the skin.
But what the heck is a coccinia indica? I’ve never seen that at Publix in Bradenton, have you? Turns out it’s a creeper in the pumpkin family. It tastes like a honey melon but can be sour. It’s used for traditional medicine in the India subcontinent.
