The pomegranate (punica granatum), native to ancient Persia, has been valued for centuries as a medicinal plant. Today, we know that the secret of the pomegranate can be found in a single drop of its precious oil, pressed from the seeds found in the red arils of the fruit. Rich in rare Omega 5 essential fatty acid, it is the only known botanical source of Conjugated Linolenic Acid (CLnA), also known as Punicic Acid, one of the most potent antioxidants known to modern science, and a natural phytoestrogen (plant-based estrogen).
- Conjugated molecular structure makes it highly compatible with and easily absorbed by skin. Acting as a delivery system, it helps channel nutrients directly to the cell, accelerating the process of cellular regeneration and rejuvenation.
- Rich in antioxidants, which deliver improvements in skin health and appearance by eliminating free radicals that can cause cellular degradation and premature aging.
- Supports the body’s resilience against inflammation , which takes place on the cellular level and can be triggered by many factors (environmental toxins, stress, poor diet). Controlling this inflammatory response minimizes the possibility of illness and helps preserve the youthfulness of skin.
- Contains a human-compatible form of phytoestrogen that supports hormonal balance and skin health in both men and women.
- Contains essential vitamins and minerals (B1, B2, C, potassium, and magnesium), is anti-carcinogenic, and supports and maintains immune, hormonal, circulatory, and metabolic health.
- As a "dry" oil, it absorbs readily into skin without leaving any greasy residue.
Because pomegranate seed oil is a sensitive molecule, it was very important to us at Pomega that we source the purest and scientifically most reliable source available. We tested 14 different varieties from around the world prior to selecting our current, cold-pressed organic source of pomegranate seed oil, which was deemed to be the highest grade due to its exceptional Punicic Acid content.
