Purslane Portulaca oleracea

Location: India
Purslane, native to India, has thick, fleshy stalks and leaves and so is classed as a succulent.
It is one of the basic elements of the « Cretan diet », exemplary for its many benefits and synonymous with long life.
It was listed by Dioskorides in the first Greek pharmacopoeia for its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, which is precisely what it is used for in cosmetology. In skin care treatments for men, it helps fight razor burn, soothe irritations and calm redness.
