Pomegranate kernel oil, organic

Description of the oil

The certified organic pomegranates for our high-quality pomegranate kernel oil grow on 400 hectares in Azerbaijan. We have had pomegranate kernel oil in our product range for over ten years, long before it was trendy. We have the oil mechanically cold pressed from the dried and cleaned kernels of the Punica Granatum pomegranate.
Originally, the pomegranate comes from southwestern Asia. The pomegranate orchards of our cultivation partner are also located there. Since ancient times, the pomegranate has been considered a symbol of fertility and also power because of its many seeds.
Today, the pomegranate is trendy as a superfood. Our pomegranate kernel oil is also at the forefront of the sustainable trend "Upcycling Beauty": the kernels for our oil are a by-product of the production of organic pomegranate juice. By producing pomegranate kernel oil from them, the pomegranate kernels experience a valuable upcycling.

Our pomegranate seed oil is ORGANIC, COSMOS and KOSHER certified, as well as NATRUE conform. The oil can be stored for at least 18 months.

Botany

At the heart of pomegranate kernel oil is a rare omega-5 fatty acid, punicic acid. This cosmetic active ingredient is contained in our pomegranate kernel oil at a level of over 60%.
Together with the flavonoids, polyphenols and phytohormones also contained, the oil has exceptional antioxidant properties. It naturally protects skin and hair from oxidative stress, i.e. free radicals.

Application cosmetics

The golden yellow, somewhat viscous pomegranate kernel oil from certified organic cultivation has a characteristic, slightly nutty scent. With its unusual fatty acid spectrum, it supports the formation of new cells. It has a regenerating, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect. Skin elasticity is preserved and the lipid layer of the skin is strengthened.
Pomegranate kernel oil is ideal for mature, demanding skin. It is also excellent in emulsions for sensitive, atopic and eczematous skin. It is also ideal for the care of brittle cuticles. Dry skin benefits from the regenerating properties of pomegranate kernel oil in serums, boosters and treatments. Used in after-sun products, irritated and sun-damaged skin is delighted with the natural active ingredient oil.
Product ideas
Together with argan and macadamia nut oil, the result is a precious beauty elixir for skin over 40.
For sensitive skin, pomegranate kernel oil can be combined with calendula macerate.
In a superfood day care, the pomegranate kernel oil could be combined with chia oil or moringa seed oil, for example.

Organic premium cultivation

Sustainability plays a crucial role for AOT. From the very beginning, we have focused on organic farming. It protects the climate, ensures soil fertility and protects the environment. Synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are not used. It goes without saying that the pomegranate orchards of our cultivation partner are also managed in a controlled organic manner.

Much more than a trend for us is also the use of by-products from food production. The pomegranate kernels used for our pomegranate kernel oil are produced during juice production. In the social media and also in market research institutes, this is referred to as "upcycling beauty": effective and at the same time ecological cosmetic active ingredients are obtained from by-products in this way.
