What is Pomegranate Extract?
A fruit well known in ancient medicine for its health and beauty benefits, pomegranate is believed to have originated in Persia. It has an arresting nutritional profile, containing 3 types of polyphenols – tannins, anthocyanin, and ellagic acid and with 3 times as many antioxidants as red wine and green tea, this is more than just a delicious juicy fruit.
Pomegranate has a wide range of health benefits, reducing the risk of serious illnesses including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, arthritis, and even obesity. It assists digestive function, can support weight loss, and promotes dental health. It protects the body from oxidative stress, environmental stressors, and UV radiation. It keeps you healthy by supporting immune function as well.
What is Pomegranate Extract used for?
You may have noticed skincare experts swearing by pomegranate extract of late and we can shed some light on this too. Pomegranate is packed with powerful plant compounds that give it intense properties. Punicalagins, extremely potent antioxidants, are found in the juice and peel of the pomegranate fruit. Pomegranate extract is typically made from the peel and is brimming with antioxidant content.
Pomegranate extract boosts collagen production and cell regeneration. The antioxidants work in conjunction with vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and phytonutrients to promote collagen production and increase skin elasticity. This promotes smooth, firm, and soft skin. While it protects the outer layer of the skin, pomegranate extract helps skin cell regeneration within in the inner and outer layers of the skin, increasing circulation, healing the skin, and repairing damaged tissue.
Pomegranate extract’s high content of ellagic acid protects your skin from damage caused by UV radiation. While it protects against signs of premature aging caused by sun exposure, it reduces the damage that has already occurred. It can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and age spots to give you clearer, healthier, and more youthful skin.
Pomegranate extract is rich in punicic acid and contains oleic acid, giving it the ability to intensely and deeply hydrate dry skin. It works great for skincare because it has a small molecular structure. This allows it to penetrate deeply into the skin, hydrating it and preventing moisture loss. These properties make it wonderful for hair care as well. It strengthens hair follicles while hydrating and deeply conditioning them resulting in faster and thicker hair growth.
