Punica granatum seeds

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.
