Virgin Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil is obtained from the seeds which are found inside the fruit in a white spongy tissue. It is a cold-pressed extracted carrier oil exhibiting strong antioxidant activity.

The antioxidant content in the oil acts as a protectant to skin and hair against environmental oxidative damage.

Pomegranate provides hydrating relief to the skin, helping with dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and sunburned skin. Just like the Pomegranate, the oil has high antioxidant content, mainly due to it’s high content of ellagic acid. By fending off damaging free radicals, the oil helps keep the skin looking young and can provide some protection against the sun.
