Pomegranate Extract description

Pomegranate extract offers antioxidant properties that can help improve the appearance of ageing skin by inhibiting damaging environmental stressors. It can also have a soothing effect on skin. When consumed orally via fresh food, juice, or supplement, pomegranate helps the body defend itself against things that can lead to health concerns while minimising oxidative damage via its nutrient profile, largely driven by antioxidant ellagic acid.
