This extract provides an excellent way to introduce the rejuvenating benefits of pomegranate easily into your formulas.
Pomegranate is high in vitamins and antioxidants. It has three times as many antioxidants as red wine and green tea and contains three types of poylphenols; tannins, athocyanins and ellagic acid. These work together to protect the outer layer of the skin and regenerate skin cells, increasing circulation and healing the skin, aiding in tissue repair and wound healing. Pomegranates also protect the skin against free radical damage, relieve sunburn and reduce the signs of sun damage.
This extract will penetrate deep into the skin to soothe dry, cracked and irritated skin. It contains punicic acid, an omega 5 fatty acid that hydrates and prevents moisture loss. It also protects against premature ageing by helping reduce the signs of skin ageing caused by sun damage and exposure, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Pomegranates also help prevent hyperpigmentation and age spots.
Pomegranates also promote smooth, firm skin by promoting collagen and elastin production and soften skin.
