Pomegranate Power

Our Pure Organic cold-pressed Pomegranate Oil is an incredible powerhouse of anti-oxidants, which makes it a superb natural moisturiser.

Recent studies have shown that Pomegranate Oil helps promote the growth and thickening of the epidermis, which can help revitalize the skin and resolve fine wrinkles.
It appears to be one of the most effective oils for achieving strong, elastic, healthy skin, helping to prevent & minimise skin damage & ageing.

The ellagic acid found in pomegranate fruit is one of the most potent anti-oxidants, effectively scavenging free radicals. Research also shows that ellagic acid has the strongest age-proofing capabilities to date and is currently being studied for its anti-cancer and healing benefits.

Why not add pomegrante to your skincare routine this winter. The cold weather & central heating can all reak havoc on our skin ... pomegranate will help replenish lost moisture in the skin & smooth away any dry patches.

Pomegranate is a very rich oil, so a little goes a long way. You can use it as a nourishing facial oil any time of the day. Our Replenishing Rose Face Cream contains a high percentage of Pomegranate, blended with rose, rosehip & raspberry to give your skin a revitalising skin treat :)
