Best known for its antioxidant capabilities, pomegranate seed oil is one of the most rich and nutritious oils you can put on your skin. High in conjugated fatty acids (punicic and ellagic), pomegranate seed oil is believed to improve skin elasticity and heal and protect damaged skin. Its antioxidant properties dispose of free radicals which age skin. A study by the University of Michigan Medical school (published in the Feb. 2006 journal of Ethnopharmacology) showed that this oil stimulates keratinocyte proliferation thereby promoting regeneration and strengthening of the epidermis.

Punica Grantum is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub or small tree. 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. The interventions are also said to diminish the cutaneous inflammation associated with chronic UV exposure that leads to photo-aging.
