Pomegranate Seed Oil for Skincare

Pomegranate seed oil is a prized choice for skin care, both as a standalone oil and as part of cosmetics or body care products, such as lotions and creams.  The oil contains notable amounts of flavonoids and punicic acid, both of which are known for their skin benefits.  Additionally, pomegranate seed oil is recognized for its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to fight free radicals.

One way that pomegranate seed oil can work as an anti-aging product or ingredient is its ability to stimulate keratinocytes in the skin.  These cells help revive and repair skin, leading to a more youthful appearance.

As a hair and scalp treatment, pomegranate seed oil can be used to clear scalp debris will increasing circulation.  It will also revive dull, dry hair, and can help prevent damage caused by cleansing or certain drying hair products.  When used as a hot oil treatment, it can help smooth hair cuticles, helping to tame frizz and improving the look of curls.
