Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil

Punica granatum seed oil

This oil is derived from the seed of the pomegranate fruit which is believed to have originated in the vicinity of Iran and has been cultivated since ancient times.  This is an expensive oil because it takes over 90 kg of fresh pomegranates to produce just 0.5 kg of Pomegranate Oil

With its reputed incredible antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging properties and ability to encourage radiant skin, this oil has become a much sought after ingredient in skin care products, especially those promoting anti-aging and sun protection

Pomegranate Oil is reported to help protect the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) and encourage cell regeneration in both the epidermis and dermis (inner layer), increasing circulation, tissue repair and wound healing.  The oil is also purported to have sun protective compounds that protect the skin against free radical damage, relieve sunburn and reduce the signs caused by sun damage

Pomegranate Oil may even help protect the skin against cancer because of the ellagic acid it contains.  Ellagic acid is a polyphenol antioxidant found in large quantities in pomegranates which researchers believe inhibits the growth of skin tumours

Pomegranate Oil is also said to promote smooth, firm skin by encouraging collagen and elastin production, and softens skin.  It is also claimed to protect against premature aging by helping reduce signs such as fine lines and wrinkles, caused by sun damage and exposure.  Additionally it may help prevent age spots

This oil is suitable for any skin type.  It is effective in hydrating and preventing moisture loss in dry skin as it penetrates deeply into the skin.  For oily, problem skin it has been shown to help acne skin, combat breakouts, reduce scarring and soothe minor irritations

American actress, Zooey Deschanel, who made her film debut in Mumford is known to have used facial oils which have contained Pomegrante Oil
