Pomegranate Supplement article
We are very pleased with this luxurious, quickly and deeply penetrating oil. It is a perfect choice for skin creams/lotions, soaps, massage oils, facial care products or as a stand-alone oil to help nourish and promote healthy skin, yet only a small amount is necessary in formulation to achieve beneficial results. Because of it's cosmetic and medicinal properties, it is used topically and internally. Valerie Worwood notes that Pomegranate Seed oil is suitable for "balanced, normal skin."
Benefits for Hair: People report that Pomegranate Seed Oil helps to revitalize dull, dry hair, clear scalp debris, stimulate hair growth, discourage bacteria, nourish the hair follicles and balance the pH level of the scalp, which may help to neutralize excessive oil production.
