Balloon vine is an annual climber with lovely heart-shaped leaves. It owes its name to its green to brown fruits that resemble balloons.
In homeopathy, the balloon vine is often used to treat inflammatory and itchy skin conditions. Its extract is used in salves and lotions with an effect similar to cortisone.
Balloon vine extract is very well tolerated even by sensitive skin and can achieve great results in cosmetics. It moisturizes the skin, relieves irritation and soothes itchy, reddened skin.
