Pomegranate CO2

Pomegranate Seed Extract

Pomegranate CO2, also known as pomegranate seed oil, is an extract that is derived from the seeds of the pomegranate fruit using a process called supercritical fluid extraction. This oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids, which makes it a popular ingredient in the beauty industry, especially in skin care products.

One of the most significant benefits of pomegranate CO2 is its ability to nourish and protect the skin. The high concentration of antioxidants in the oil helps to fight against free radicals that can damage skin cells, leading to premature aging and other skin concerns. Antioxidants also help to reduce inflammation in the skin, making it an effective ingredient for people with sensitive or acne-prone skin.

Pomegranate CO2 is also rich in punicic acid, a type of omega-5 fatty acid that helps to strengthen the skin's natural barrier function. This means that it can help to lock in moisture and prevent water loss, which can help to keep the skin hydrated and plump. This makes it an excellent ingredient for people with dry or dehydrated skin.

In addition to its hydrating and protective properties, pomegranate CO2 also has anti-inflammatory benefits. This means that it can help to calm and soothe irritated skin, making it an excellent ingredient for people with rosacea or other inflammatory skin conditions.

Overall, pomegranate CO2 is a powerful ingredient that can provide a range of benefits for the skin. Whether you're looking to protect your skin from environmental stressors, hydrate dry skin, or soothe irritated skin, incorporating products that contain pomegranate CO2 can be an effective way to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.

BOTANICAL NAME: Punica granatum (Many-seeded)

EXTRACTION: CO2 (Supercritical Extraction): A method of extracting plant chemicals by using pressurized CO2 as a solvent. It is one of the most efficient extractions to create a substance that embodies the entire plant rather than just the essential oils or triglycerides (cold-pressed oils).  

DESCRIPTION: Pomegranate (Punica granatum) CO2 is extracted from the seeds of the pomegranate fruit. The Pomegranate tree is native to Iran and the Western Himalayas of Northern India and has been cultivated for over 4000 years throughout Asia, Africa and Europe. The juices, seeds, leaves, flowers and bark all have been used historically for many medicinal purposes from healing ulcers to lowering fevers. The pomegranate has been held sacred by many religions and nations and traditionally have been seen to signify abundance, eternal life, hope, ambition and beauty. The CO2 is transparent, golden orange in colour and has a rich nutty aroma. The seeds of the pomegranate yield a lipid that contains 70% of the rare omega 5 fatty acid called punicic acid, which acts as a strong antioxidant to repair and regenerate skin. Pomegranate seed CO2 also boasts other firming components such as linoleic acid, oleic acid, vitamin E, phytosterols, and squalene. The combination of these bioactives help repair skin’s moisture barrier and support elasticity.
