Ingredient Spotlight: The Pomegranate

Posted on

Native from Iran to the Himalayas before becoming cultivated throughout the whole Mediterranean, the neat, rounded shrub we know as the pomegranate is a powerhouse ingredient for maintaining youthful, healthy and glowing skin. While the juicy-sweet, ruby-like seeds inside the thick, protective outer layer make a tasty and healthy snack, they also pack a serious punch of anti-aging ingredients when applied topically to the skin.

The pomegranate seed’s vitamin C-rich content targets dull, dead skin cells and gently sloughs them away to provide skin with a natural glow and radiance. Vitamin C is also known for its ability to gradually lighten the look of hyperpigmentation as a result of sun exposure, melasma and acne scarring for a more even-looking, youthful skin tone.  

Packed with an incredible dose of antioxidants like proanthocyanidins and flavonoids, the oil sourced from pomegranate seeds can help delay signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. Antioxidants work by neutralizing the damaging effects of free radicals, pollutants and environmental stressors. These potent antioxidants also help combat acne by soothing inflammation and calming angry red spots.

We formulated our USDA-certified organic Nourish Facial Oil with Pomegranate to be intensely hydrating and boost the skin’s defenses against environmental stressors. An expert blend of pomegranate seed oil, evening primrose oil, sunflower and olive oils work harmoniously to drench skin in plumping moisture, essential fatty acids, vitamins and nutrients to leave even the driest complexions looking rejuvenated, refreshed, and renewed.
