Pomegranates aren’t just a tasty, refreshing treat. They’re also full of antioxidants, making them a skincare superstar. Here are some impressive benefits that pomegranate extract can have on your skin.

Poko’s Luxury Facial Oil contains pomegranate extract, so we’re very excited to shine the spotlight on it.

The benefits of pomegranate extract

We’ve all been told that pomegranates are high in Vitamin C, but here are some ways pomegranate extract benefits you.

Pomegranate extract hydrates the skin

A must-have for the drier months of the year, pomegranate extract benefits your skin by hydrating it. Punic and oleic acids in pomegranate extract create an oil that slowly melts into your skin, giving it a chance to slowly absorb the moisture it needs.

Pomegranate extract’s small molecular structure lets it deeply penetrate your skin. This means pomegranate extract has the ability to treat dry skin at the root, instead of offering surface hydration.

Pomegranate extract prevents premature ageing

A preservation powerhouse, pomegranate extract contains antioxidants like Vitamin C, tannins, and acids. These antioxidants block your skin from free radical damage, protecting against signs of premature ageing.

Pomegranate extract really does do it all. The antioxidants found in pomegranate extract benefit your skin by promoting the production of collagen and elastin. This means it keeps your skin soft, smooth, and firm.

Pomegranate extract offers sun protection

Pomegranate extract benefits your skin by protecting it against sun damage. Combining the Vitamin C found in pomegranate extract with an SPF can neutralise damage from sun exposure. This can prevent free radical damage, reduce hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure, and even relieve sunburn.

Pomegranate extract can reduce oil production

Adding an extract or oil to your skincare routine when you’ve got oily or combination skin can sound a little ineffective. However, your skin might not be oily -- it could just be dry. In an attempt to combat dryness, your skin produces more oil.

Pomegranate extract is a great hydrating option for oily skin. The natural antimicrobials found in Vitamin C can calm your skin, reduce oil production, and help with breakouts.

Why we chose pomegranate extract

The results speak for themselves. Pomegranate extract seems almost too good to be true. It’s got a seemingly-unending list of benefits -- it’s hydrating, it’s non-comedogenic, it offers sun protection, and it works well for all skin types.

We chose to include pomegranate extract in Poko’s Luxury Facial Oil because of its amazing antioxidant properties. At Poko, we’re focused on infusing our products with only the best botanical extracts. The clear benefits of pomegranate extract made us want to include it in Poko’s Luxury Facial Oil.

It wasn’t just the fact that pomegranate extract is suitable for all skin types, making our Luxury Facial Oil an option for everyone. Pomegranate extract assists in brightening dull complexions. It can also fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

We also find that pomegranate extract works even better when used in tandem with Cannabidiol (CBD), our main active ingredient. These two skincare superstars work together to brighten your complexion. They also work to reverse the effects of premature ageing by gradually fading fine lines.

Based on these factors, we knew that we wanted pomegranate extract in our Luxury Facial Oil.

We recommend: Poko’s Luxury Facial Oil

You might be familiar with the idea of oil-cleansing, and maybe that’s where you draw the line with oil in your skincare routine. Consider the facial oil to seal in and protect your skin’s natural moisture barrier. The idea of a face oil might be a new one, but it’s a fantastic, all-natural way of keeping your skin hydrated.

The Luxury Facial Oil is a topical -- it cannot penetrate the skin deeply enough to enter the bloodstream. This means that the Luxury Facial Oil focuses on the surface, benefiting the areas of your skin that need it the most.

While CBD is the star of Poko’s Luxury Facial Oil, pomegranate extract plays an important supporting role. It supports and boosts the antioxidants found in CBD, infusing your skin with an added dose of goodness.

Poko’s Luxury Facial Oil is also rich in omega fatty acids, which promotes the softening and plumping of your skin. All the active ingredients work together to restore balance to your skin, aiding it in repairing sun damage, deteriorating skin cells, and fading scars.

The CBD in our Luxury Facial Oil soothes sensitive skin, reducing redness and restoring balance. Baobab oil fights signs of ageing, giving your skin a blast of hydration without clogging pores or producing blackheads. Moringa oil aids in healing scars and smoothing hyperpigmentation. Pomegranate extract fights the good fight, boosting the effectiveness of these actives.

If you’re looking for a cocktail of botanical goodness to soothe and revitalise your skin, consider Poko’s Luxury coconut oil. Massaging it into your face and neck after moisturising can help reinforce your skin’s natural moisture barrier, while giving yourself a mini-spa experience.
