Pomegranate seed extract, in combination with other carrier oils, is ideal for use in cold climates and in skin care products formulated for mature skin or for those with dry or irritated skin conditions.
Our carrier oils are extracted either cold-pressed or using carbon dioxide (CO2). Cold-pressed carrier oils are considered raw or virgin and are extracted in a controlled temperature setting, they retain the healthy antioxidants which helps combat free radicals. CO2-extracted carrier oils are usually thicker than their essential oil counterparts and are truer to the scent of the original plants compared to other forms of extraction, which means more of the plant’s chemical structure is retained in the oil. CO2-extracted oils also resulted in low toxicity and minimal environmental impact.
