Pomegranate: The Antioxidant Jewel for Better, Brighter, Healthier Skin
A shrub native to central Asia and northern India, pomegranate trees bear fruits that hold an important key to beauty and wellness. The round, reddish-brown fruits grow from the branches have a hard, husk-likes shell exterior and an interior filled with edible seeds. Depending on their size, each bulbous fruit has anywhere from 150 to 1500 seeds (the average is around 600). The seeds—called arils—are small in size, resembling a smooth ruby, and are filled with vibrant nutrients: vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, potassium, antioxidants. A bright purple-red juice flows from the seeds when they are punctured, a color that's attributed to the high presence of ellagitannins and anthocyanins, which studies show help to ease inflammation. The juice has long been a touted wellness beverage for its studied impact on lowering blood pressure, lessening hypertension, and promoting better vascular health.
But the benefits of pomegranate extend beyond its juice. The oil, which is made by cold-pressing the seeds, is packed with antioxidants that benefit the skin and hair. Lightweight and super-absorbent, pomegranate seed oil makes an incredible carrier oil (it's an UMA star) given its rather weightless feel and ease on all skin types. It absorbs rapidly, moisturizing the outer layer of the skin before quickly penetrating to the deeper dermal layers. The abundance of minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins A, D, K, and E work to enhance overall elasticity, boost collagen production, reduce the visible signs of scarring, reverse sun damage, and accelerate healing. There is also a high concentration of essential fatty acids and the antioxidant ellagic acid, which help to fight free radicals that can lead to premature signs of aging of both the skin and the hair. Furthermore, the antimicrobial properties help to fight scalp conditions.
With such a bounty of health benefits, pomegranate is an easily revered fruit. And no matter what your skin type, the oil will, undoubtedly, make a noticeable difference in your skin. Here are a handful of UMA products that contain this magical oil.
Ultimate Brightening Oil: This triple-action brightening blend is rich in sandalwood and rose essential oils, which deliver rich hydration for a more luminous complexion.
Absolute Anti Aging Face Oil: This ultra luxurious blend combines nature’s most potent botanicals to reduce visible signs of aging and transform dry or damaged-looking skin with rich frankincense essential oil and rose essential oil.

Beauty Boosting Day Face Oil : Antioxidant-rich and complete with rose essential oil, this multipurpose oil is perfect for lightweight protection and hydration. Geranium extract minimizes redness for a visibly brighter and more radiant complexion.
Absolute Anti Aging Body Oil: The pomegranate seed oil pairs with sandalwood, rose, and neroli to lock in moisture and lend a glistening glow to shoulder, arms, legs, knees—and more.
