For the past few years, we’ve been hearing lots about the benefits of argan oil for hair and skin, with many hailing it as “liquid gold”! Argan oil undoubtedly has its benefits, but there’s a new super oil on the block – and it’s pomegranate seed oil ! This fresh, fruity oil, made by cold-pressing the seeds of a pomegranate, is lightweight, hyper-absorbent, and packed with antioxidants – for unparalleled effects on skin, hair, and overall health!
Stimulates hair growth
Not only does pomegranate oil leave your locks silky smooth, but it also works to promote hair growth! Its rich vitamin and antioxidant content stimulates blood circulation in the scalp, which in turn encourages your hair to grow at a faster rate. Pomegranate oil is also ideal for those suffering from dandruff or dry scalp, as it moisturizes deeply (without leaving any of that dreaded greasy residue!)
Boosts skin tone
Pomegranate oil is effective for all skin types, and is a great way to maintain the health of the collagen in your skin. This daily face oil deeply nourishes the outer layer of skin, minimising fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving the skin’s overall elasticity. An added bonus is that unlike counterparts like coconut or argan oil, pomegranate oil is ultra lightweight face moisturiser, and absorbs rapidly. Its superior absorbency allows it to quickly penetrate deeper layers of the skin, and deliver vitamins A, D, K and E to the subcellular epidermis, making it an ideal choice for those looking to rapidly repair dry or damaged skin.
Reduces skin damage
Pomegranate seed oil is rich in ellagic acid (a natural antioxidant) and Omega-5 fatty acids, both of which fight off free radicals that can lead to premature signs of ageing. Research has shown that using this absolute anti aging face oil can also have an impressive effect on lowering sun damage and the risk of skin cancer. When added to sunscreen, one study indicated a whopping 20% reduction in skin damage! (Howard Murad M.D, University of Wisconsin)
