A Little Bit About the Ingredient Itself

What's Your Skin Score Quiz

Pomegranate is scientifically called Punica granatum, and is a fruit-bearing shrub or small tree that grows between 16 to 26 feet tall. The name “pomegranate” actually means “seeded apple” and came from the Middle French “pomme garnete.” The plant is thought to have originated in Iran, but today is widely grown through the Mediterranean and in Southern Europe, northern Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. We also have it here in the U.S. in parts of California and Arizona.

A symbol of health, fertility, and eternal life, pomegranate has spiny branches and evergreen leaves, with showy flowers that bloom by themselves or in clusters of as many as five. The fruit is about 2.5 to 5 inches wide, and has a tough leathery skin. Inside, you’ll find white spongy tissue in compartments packed with transparent sacs full of tart, juicy pulp. In each sac there is one white or red seed—and that’s where the magical oil comes from.

Internal Health Benefits of Pomegranate

You may already know that pomegranates have a lot of health benefits. Pomegranates are full of antioxidants, are great sources of dietary fiber, and preliminary research suggests they may help increase oxygen levels to the heart. They also contain a naturally occurring enzyme that helps keep LDL “bad” cholesterol from accumulating in the arteries.

Pomegranate seeds, however, also have health benefits. Some studies have suggested that the oil may help stop the destruction of joints caused by osteoarthritis. A 2009 study also found that pomegranate seed oil may help to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Where pomegranate seeds really shine, however, is in skin care.

Pomegranate Oil’s Benefits to the Skin

The power of pomegranate seed oil is one of the most exciting things in skin care. Here are the details:

  • Protection: Just like the pomegranate fruit is prized for its high antioxidant content, the seed oil is the also coveted for its antioxidant protection.
  • Moisturization: Like most natural oils, pomegranate seed oil also hydrates skin, penetrating easily and deeply to create lasting, healthy moisture that won’t feel greasy or create shininess. It’s perfect for all types of skin, even oily skin.
  • Soothing: Because of all its properties together, pomegranate seed oil provides soothing, hydrating relief for those with extra dry and sensitive skin.

Try It!

It was a no-brainer to include pomegranate seed oil in our Anti-Aging Facial Oil. It’s properties of antioxidant protection and moisturization make it a potent ingredient to help you look your best ever.
