Pomegranate Seed Oil benefits for skin
You’re probably familiar with the pomegranate, a vibrant fruit that owes its superfood status to its rich composition of vitamins and antioxidants. But unlock the oil within its seeds, and you’ll find that this tasty fruit has even more to offer.
Uses of Pomegranate Seed Oil
The nutrient packed, lightweight oil contained within the seeds of the pomegranate offers powerful nutrition for your skin.
Much of the oil’s “magic” is due to a bioactive component called Punicic Acid. Making up almost 70% of the oil’s chemical composition, this is an Omega 5 fatty acid that reduces skin inflammation and aids in skin repair. Punicic Acid makes pomegranate oil a highly effective tonic for scarring and discoloration. It also works to prevent moisture loss through the skin, providing protection from the elements and supporting all-day hydration.
Remarkably, Pomegranate Seed Oil is the only known botanical source of Punicic Acid – making it a must-have in your skincare routine.
