Pomegranate seed oil, do you know much about it? Have you tried it before?
...Well what are you waiting for?
This is a well-respected hero ingredient in many skincare formulations because of its incredible properties and the way that it impacts the skin’s appearance.
Pomegranate is known as a superfood, because of its nutritious properties that contribute towards the body’s health.
The Benefits of Pomegranate Seed Oil
A part of the reason why pomegranate is so good for your health and for your skin is due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Pomegranate seed oil is the only known botanical to contain omega 5, which is also known as punicic acid. As the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in this acid are so high, it can actually slow down the visible signs of aging and environmental damage to the skin. That’s good news if you live in the city, surrounded by pollution every single day.
The punicic and ellagic acid work together to stimulate the production of collagen, resulting in healthier looking, supple skin.
What’s brilliant about pomegranate seed oil is that it is able to stimulate the keratinocytes that help to form the skin. These are the cells that form the majority of the top layer of your skin, and work to keep it healthy, protecting it against UV rays and bacteria.
Why is Pomegranate Oil Good for Your Skin?
To sum it up, pomegranate seed oil is an excellent, natural, plant-based active that gives your skin visibly enhanced results by regenerating and strengthening its structure, whilst also defending your skin from enemies such as pollution and UV rays so that it stays looking healthier and younger for longer. It's a great addition to any anti-aging or anti-pollution skincare routine.
