Pomegranates have been used throughout history for their many benefits. The seeds, which are the edible parts inside the pomegranate, is what we used to produce the oil. With the cold press method we receive the oil which is highly prized for its powerful flavonoids and punicic acid that contribute to its many nutritional benefits.
Pomegranate seed oil is a potent source of punicic acid, an Omega 5 conjugated fatty acid, beneficial phytoestrogen and a rare plant based source of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid).
Some possible benefits of the pomegranate seed oil are skin regenerative, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, natural preservative and an antioxidant. Pomegranate seed oil stimulates “keratinocytes,” which are major cells found in the outer layer of the skin. That aids in reversing skin damage, as well as reviving and restoring the skin to reveal a more youthful appearance. The oil’s potent antioxidants like vitamin C can help the enhance skin elasticity, improve skin tone and balance the skin’s pH level to create healthy, radiant and youthful skin. The antioxidants in pomegranate seed oil also help to regulate the production of sebum, as well as treating hormonal imbalances that can treat and prevent acne. This nutrient-rich oil provides moisture, without leaving a greasy residue or contributing to breakouts – it rejuvenates the skin, leaving it smooth, soft and flawless.
