Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) is one of the oldest edible fruit and belongs to the Punicaceae family. It has been highly valued for centuries as a medicinal plant due to being rich in rare polyunsaturated fatty acid Omega 5. The extract obtained from Pomegranate seed contains high amounts of oil and is used both in cosmetics and nutraceuticals. Our pomegranate seed CO2 extract has an extremely high omega-5 content (>60% punicic acid), a potent fatty acid highly nutritious for the skin.
The pomegranate seed extract is a fabulous ingredient, ideal to promote skin glow and resilience while giving your complexion an extra boost [1-5].
