Ripe pomegranate on the branch. The foliage on the background.Brimming with rich seeds surrounded by ruby-red fruit, the pomegranate has, since ancient times, been revered as a symbol of fertility and abundance.

King Solomon wrote in the Song of Songs, one of the world’s greatest love poems “Thy lips are like a thread of scarlet, and thy speech is comely: thy temples are like a piece of pomegranate within thy locks.”

And Boticceli painted a glorious Madonna of the Pomegranate, pictured below.

Fortunately, the beauty of pomegranates is more than skin deep. Pomegranates have remarkable health and beauty benefits.

Using Pomegranate Oil

It takes more than 300 pomegranates to make 1 pound of cold pressed pomegranate oil, so this precious beauty is expensive – very, especially the organic grade. However, the benefits for dry skin make it totally worthwhile.

That is why it is one of the main ingredients in our organic Creme Supérieure, a regenerative moisturizer.

We find the results speak for themselves.
