Cardiospermum halicacabum extract is used in cosmetics as a soothing (relieves itching) and anti-inflammatory component, with particular effects on allergic rashes. Its properties are due to a high percentage of phytosterols and triterpenes, the anti-inflammatory characteristics of which are of particular interest. The plant that goes by the same name is a vine native to the tropics, whose name comes from the typical white heart-shaped spot on the seeds of the plant (from the Latin: cardio = heart, spermum = seed).
