Ingredient Spotlight: Pomegranate Fruit Extract

August 15, 2019

Pomegranates conjure up bright summer days because these succulent seeds are bursting with sweet flavor to provide a dose of hydration when the temperatures soar.

Pomegranate Seed Oil

Pomegranate was revered as “the sacred fruit” in ancient cultures, thought to be the blood of Adonis; the God of beauty. It represents fertility and prosperity and has been prized for both its overall health and skin benefits throughout the centuries.

Find out why we use pomegranate seed oil in our Brightening Essence and how it can transform your skin!


Omega 5 makes pomegranate oil a standout

Omega 5 provides the same benefits you have come to love from omega 3 and more. Think of it as a supercharged version of omega 3!

Also known as Punicic acid , it has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-aging properties to repair, heal and regenerate the skin at a cellular level.  It helps to increase hydration and stimulates collagen production for plumper, firmer skin.

It’s a superstar ingredient for reducing inflammation, making it wonderful for inflammatory skin conditions like acne or eczema. 


Powerful antioxidants fight the signs of aging

As if omega 5 isn’t enough, pomegranate is also brimming in an array of antioxidants, including A, C, E, and folic acid, that are simply fantastic for youthful, dewy and glowing skin! They work together to boost hydration and prevent moisture loss through the pores, fight off damaging free radicals and leave skin vibrant.

Pomegranate is also rich in flavonoids and anthocyanins, as well as polyphenols; chemical compounds found naturally in plant sources with excellent results.

These groups of antioxidants provide protective properties and can neutralize free radicals, preventing DNA damage in cells. These polyphenols can help to absorb excess ultraviolet light to prevent damage from UV rays and reduce the risk of skin cancer.
