It’s skin renewal, regeneration and reparation properties are thanks to it’s ability to stimulate keratinocyte proliferation(2), an epidermal cell which produces keratin, which is responsible for new cell and fibre growth. It’s also known to stimulate the production of collagen, so combined, we’re left with skin that is more plump and elastic, with less wrinkles.
Pomegranate Seed Oil penetrates deep into our skin’s layers, offering sustainable moisture, with no greasy residue. This lends a benefit in our products as it brings the nutrients deep into the dermis for great results.
It’s the only oil to contain the omega 5 polyunsaturated oil called punicic acid. This fatty acid, along with the pomegranate’s high antioxidant content, offers brilliant protection against UV damage and fights off free radicals, which is a main cause for ageing.
Clinical trials show that taken orally(3) and topically(4) it even inhibits cancer growth! It needs further research, but there’s potential that applying this oil can help prevent skin cancer.
