Open up a pomegranate and it's like a cracking open a geode filled with sparkling ruby gems. We can't think of a prettier fruit that is in season right now.
Beyond its impressive looks, the pomegranate is a super fruit that has tremendous benefits for your hair, skin and overall health. It can be used as a natural replacement for synthetic materials such as petrolatum and animal-derived materials, like lanolin. We use high-quality pomegranate sterols for our Steam Scalp Oil, in fact its the second highest ingredient next to jojoba seed oil which we highlighted in last week's post. Pomegranate sterols is capable of increasing moisture levels on the skin while enhancing the skin’s barrier function to protect against harmful pollutants in our environment.
The sterols (alcohols) extracted from pomegranates make wonderful skin and hair care ingredients. The high antioxidant properties in this luscious fruit hydrates, nourishes, and protects us. Viva!
