A glycerin extract of pomegranate pulp, giving good polyphenol protection as well as a good humectant to keep the skin supple.

A pale amber coloured liquid made by using glycerin as a means of extracting the active components from pomegranate pulp.

Pomegranate seeds that are extracted into glycerin by a proprietary process. This unique extraction process is qualified by the Soil Association and it results in a sparkling extract, which is not as sticky as pure glycerin extracts. It is sterilised by filtration so no preservative is necessary to keep the extract in its pure form.

Pomegranate contains ellagic acid which, together with other polyphenols, help to regulate cell turnover and give the cell time to divide normally and form completely.

Skin Care
Pomegranate Glycerol Extract is a good replacement for glycerin in skin products as it has the humectant effect needed but also a strong polyphenol action.

Add to after shave products like skin soothers and moisturisers as it strengthen the cell membranes and keeps moisture in the skin.

It can be used as a moisturiser in antioxidant creams and lotions.

It also has an anti inflammatory effect.

Ellagic acid is also thought to strengthen the cell membrane, making it less susceptible to free radical damage and preventing water loss from the cell. This is ideal in night creams and anti aging serums.

Combine with hydrolates to make facial toners and spritzes for targeting specific areas or for general moisturisation. Especially effective after sunburn.

Very calming and soothing when used in after shave creams and lotions or spritzes. Equally effective for using after waxing or other hair removal.

Hair Care
Strengthening the cell membranes will help the hair follicles to work the best they can.
Add to shampoos and hair conditioners to restore the structure of damaged hair giving more shine and elasticity.

Recommended for oily hair that has a tendency to have dandruff.

Historical Information
Almost every major culture in the last 8,000 years has valued the pomegranate. Whether it be for ceremonial and ritual use or for food or cosmetic use, it has been used extensively.

Of course, it is only recently that “modern science” caught on to centuries of knowledge.

In 1964, the first research studies were done on pomegranates and it was 20 years later for the second study. To date, there are over 400 scientific studies that generally agree on the benefits of pomegranate.
