Pomegranate Finding its Way into Our Beauty Products

"Pomega-5 is a collection of skin-care products that, according to the company, "Are all formulated with organic cold-pressed pomegranate seed oil, which yields the highest possible nutritional concentration of omega-5, a powerful and easily absorbed antioxidant. Bioactive botanicals like pomegranates work on the cellular level and serve as antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory agents keep skin clear, calm and balanced." Pomega-5 Daily Revitalizing Concentrate Ampoules ($48, www.pomega5.com) contain more than 60 percent pure omega-5. They are incredibly luxurious-feeling, and they smell amazing, like having a facial at a spa. I use them at night, and my skin feels baby soft in the morning. "
