The oil is obtained from the seeds which are found inside the fruit in a white spongy tissue.

For Skin

A report in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology found that Pomegranate oil stimulates ‘keratinocytes’, which are the major cells found in the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin). Helping to regenerate these cells, may actually help to reverse past damage and revive the skin to reveal a fresher and more youthful appearance.
Pomegranate provides hydrating relief to the skin, helping with dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and sunburned skin. Just like the Pomegranate, the oil has high antioxidant content, mainly due to it’s high content of ellagic acid. By fending off damaging free radicals, the oil helps keep the skin looking young and can provide some protection against the sun.

Pomegranate oil is ideal for dandruff, hair dullness, dryness and thinning of the hair.
