Potent & Powerful: The Benefits of Using Pomegranate Seed Oil
by Katharine L'Heureux
Pomegranate Seed Oil is one of our favorite ingredients for its multiple amazing benefits. This deliciously potent ingredient is derived from the seeds of pomegranates through the cold pressing technique, giving us a beautiful golden-hued oil.Pomegranate Seed Oil (as well as other ingredients we love like Carrot Seed Oil) is an excellent natural source of carotenoids. These fat-soluble pigments are highly nutritious, and are absorbed by the skin. They convert to Vitamin A in the body, which in turn is converted to a natural form of retinol by the liver. This process supports cell regeneration, keeping you and your skin happy and healthy. It has been shown to treat a number of skin conditions including acne, psoriasis, and sun damage due to its high concentration of antioxidants and nutrients. Pomegranate Seed Oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and balancing properties, making it a wonderful ingredient for everyone — from those looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles to those seeking to combat bacteria that leads to acne. We’ve included this beautiful, natural alternative to the synthetic versions of Vitamin A (such as retinyl palmitate) in our Serum and our Antioxidant Mask.
