Effects : Anti-inflammatory, Anti- Irritation
Portulaca oleracea, commonly called as purslane,
is an annual plant and a dicotyledon of the family
Portulacaceae. It has been a popular traditional
medicine because it does not stimulate skin and has outstanding effects in curing skin problems such as boils and edema. It does not have any toxicity and used to be enjoyed by our ancestors as vegetable. In Oriental
traditional medicine, people boiled and ate purslane for dysentery, enteritis, and bacterial dysentery.
And purslane was also put on skin or extracted for baths to cure swelling, erysipelas, itches, and eczema and to detoxify insect or snake poison. Purslane also has effects for various types of festering diseases. Bioland's Portulaca Extract is superb for mediating skin irritation, anti-inflammation, UV protection, and soothing skin.
