The Benefits of Pomegranate Seed Oil for the Skin
The pomegranate fruit has been used throughout history for its various health and skin benefits. The plant is native to areas of Iran through northern India, and has been cultivated and used by humans for hundreds of centuries. Each part of the Pomegranate fruit served a purpose: the delicate flower was crushed to create a red dye; the peel was used to dye leather; and the seeds were used not only for food but also to make cosmetics. Aside from its beauty, this fruit with revitalizing properties offers countless health benefits, which has given it the status of a legendary and influential fruit that signifies human civilization.
Pomegranate seed oil has been studied intensively over the last decade, and it has proven to be completely unique in the plant world due to its high composition of a very rare omega-5 fatty acid called punicic acid.
Punicic acid has unique properties that fight skin inflammation and regenerate tissues. It helps support collagen production and protects against environmental harm. Punicic acid also protects the internal moisture balance of the skin.
With 75% punicic acid, pomegranate seed oil boasts some wonderful skin benefits. It helps to improve elasticity and even skin tone while encouraging skin regeneration. Pomegranate seed oil is also exceptionally high in vitamin E, and contains about 48% of the daily vitamin C as well as other antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and tannins.
