Pomegranate Seed Oil, Punica granatum, is a rich, nutritious oil cold-pressed from the seeds. It contains high levels of antioxidants. It is rich in vitamin C, minerals, and omega fatty acids. It contains punicic acid, an omega-5 fatty acid that helps to hydrate and prevent moisture loss.
Pomegranate oil helps heal, protect and moisturize dry, cracked, mature, and irritated skin; revitalizes dull or mature skin; improves skin elasticity; reduces redness and flakiness; and soothes minor skin irritations, including dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, and sunburn. A hydrating ingredient that benefits all skin types, it can also moisturize acne or oily skin without clogging the pores.
Pomegranate seed oil is very expensive. It takes over 200 pounds of fresh pomegranates to produce one pound of pomegranate seed oil!
We use virgin, unrefined, organic pomegranate seed oil. Unrefined oils have not gone through a refining, bleaching, or deodorization process and retain their natural color, characteristic scent, and nutritional benefits.
