Punica Grantum is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub or small tree. The extract that comes from the Pomegranate carries potent antioxidant properties. It is thought to beautify and improve skin health by neutralizing skin-damaging oxygen molecules created by pollution and ultraviolet rays. The essential oil is classified as an emollient, skin conditioner, skin protecter and surfactant. Pomegranate, which is rich in ellagic acid and ellagitannins, has properties that prevent collagen destruction in human skin cells, thus maintaining skin structure and slowing wrinkle formation. These interventions are also said to diminish the cutaneous inflammation associated with chronic UV exposure that leads to photo-aging.
