Pomegranate - Cert. Organic
The pomegranate is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub or small tree which is native to Iran, India and countries of the Himalayas but it has been cultivated through countries of the Mediterranean for thousands of years.
The pomegranate is high in vitamins and antioxidants. It has three times as many antioxidants as red wine and green tea, containing three types of poylphenols, being tannins, athocyanins and ellagic acid. These improve skin health by neutralizing skin-damaging oxygen molecules created by pollution and ultraviolet rays and thus prevent collagen destruction in skin cells, maintaining structure and slowing wrinkle formation.
The essential oil of the pomegranate is an emollient, skin conditioning, skin protecting and surfactant.
