The Mythic Beauty of Pomegranate
Few plants have the history, reach, reverence and mysticism associated with them as Pomegranate. Stories of life, death, rebirth, and regeneration surround this mythic plant, for which we created one of our best-selling facial Serums, Pomegranate Repair Serum.
In ancient Greece pomegranate was considered the fruit of the dead and was associated with Persephone’s yearly descent into the underworld and the blood spilled by Dionysus. But pomegranate’s sacred history has roots that stretch even deeper into the ancient world. Roots that sink down into depictions in Sumerian art, and associations with Inanna. Roots that coil around offerings to Ishtar, and slink into Egyptian tombs. This fruit of the dead has been an important symbol in Islam and Judiasm, and is mentioned multiple times in the Qur’an, Talmud, and bible. Even King Solomon in his Song of Songs compared the beauty of his lover to that of a slice of pomegranate.
In these stories and traditions, Pomegranate represents the cyclical nature of life on this planet: of life, death, rebirth, and regeneration.
Pomegranate + The Skin
Our favorite way to experience the beauty benefits of pomegranate is through the seed oil. Pomegranate seed oil is a very unique oil. Its primary fatty acid is punicic acid, a rare and special compound that scientists have named Omega 5. It also contains a host of other phytonutrients and therapeutic constituents — polyphenols (antioxidants), sterols and tocopherols (vitamin e). Studies have proven that pomegranate seed oil encourages the proliferation of keratinocytes, which makes it the ideal companion for aging, thinning skin.

“Complete Transformation. I have had trouble with my skin for most of my life, specifically scarring from earlier in life and an uneven texture. After about ten days of using this serum morning and night, I noticed that the little (deep) bumps on my forehead started clearing - and fast. My skin is now completely clear, smooth, even and silky soft. After my forehead, I noticed my cheeks transformed, then my chin and jaw. My skin has never looked this young and healthy. I am amazed at the effectiveness of this product.”
“I use this every single night. My 50 year old skin has changed from oily with breakouts to beautiful and I rarely get breakouts anymore. My oil production has decreased significantly and my pores have reduced in size. My fine lines and wrinkles are in check. This is the best my skin has looked in years!”
“Essential!!! I consider this an essential part of my skin care routine. It seems to speed up healing for scars and blemishes and makes my face glow.”
