POMEGRANATE SEED OIL - OMEGA 5 FATTY ACID - PUNICIC ACID
The secret of pomegranate lies in its juicy seeds, reminiscent of precious gemstones. 20% of pomegranate seeds contain oil, which is gained by cold pressing or, even better, supercritical CO2 extraction process. Pomegranate seeds are source of essential nutrients, such as vitamins B, C, potassium, and magnesium. An astonishing 95% of pomegranate seed oil is made up of the fatty acids, and 65% of those fatty acids is rare omega-5 fatty acid, believed to be one of the most powerful antioxidants known to modern science. Pomegranate is also believed to be the only known plant-based source for Punicic Acid (also known as Conjugated Linoleic Acid). Pomegranate seed oil has a high content of punicic acid—and, again, is the only seed oil in the world containing this beneficial fatty acid.
PUNICIC ACID — THE FOUNTAIN OF HEALTH AND YOUTH
In addition to having a positive influence on the immune, hormonal, circulatory, and metabolic systems, punicic acid has numerous prophylactic and healing effects on the largest human organ, the skin.
These can be summed up in the following four “Anti’s”:
Punicic acid contained in pomegranate seed oil, consists of antioxidants, key players in supporting skin cell resilience, by destroying harmful free radicals that may cause cellular degradation and aging skin. Punicic acid's antioxidant strength is comparable to the antioxidant strength of green tea.
Pomegranate seed oil is the fountain of youth for mature skin. Besides having an efficient anti-diabetic, anti-obesity, and anti-proliferative effect, inflammation prevention is considered to be one of punicic acid’s most important functions.
THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND ANTI-CANCER SUPERMAN
UV DAMAGE CONTROL & REPAIR
THE VERDICT IS CLEAR
We love pomegranate and its seeds love us even more! Pomegranate seed oil not only protects our skin from harmful cancerous and skin diseases, but it also acts as a natural beautifying agent by reducing signs of aging (kiss dull and thin skin goodbye) and healing other undesirable conditions, such as dry, red, itchy, and scaly skin, and eczema.
It is easily absorbed into the skin, leaving no greasy residues, and nourishes, moisturizes, and hydrates skin thoroughly. Pomegranate seed oil improves the skin’s elasticity, which is an important factor when retaining a youthful appearance. Elastic skin means fewer wrinkles and fine lines.
Being the only seed oil containing punicic acid in the world, pomegranate seed oil is a unique beautifying gem. It is recommended to include pomegranate seed oil in daily skin care at all life stages, but especially in mature years, when skin begins to get dry. It nourishes our skin by delivering nutrients directly into skin cells, enhancing skin’s natural regeneration processes, leading to healthy, younger looking skin.
