Organic Pomegranate Skincare from Pomega5

It surprised us when we searched for "pomegranate" in our list of archives that we really haven't done a feature on them yet. We've mentioned them as a flavor for lollipops, tea and even a cocktail delight but nothing in specific detail. Maybe it's because the benefits of pomegranates are so widely known these days that we think you, our dear readers, are educated enough about them. Here's one thing we bet you didn't know: because pomegranate seed oil is one of the most powerful immune-support compounds ever discovered in nature, it's now being used for skin care as well. Pomega5 is the skin care industry's first complete line of organic pomegranate seed oil nutritional supplements and therapeutic skin care. By using the highest quality, 100% pure cold-pressed pomegranate seed oil, Pomega5 has created a unique line of products that soothe, moisturize and heal dry, irritated skin which is perfect for us. We tried the Healing Cleansing Bar which is a soap-free cleanser made with olive oil, organic pomegranate seed oil, herbs and essential oils. We liked how clean our skin felt without feeling tight. We followed this with the Healing Cream which was equally soothing. Again, made with 100% organic pomegranate oil, it's also known for benefits such as restoring and healing in addition to preventing anti-aging. Oh and did we mention the smell? Yuuummy. The only aspect of Pomega5 to improve upon that this TreeHugger could find was their packaging. The products came in an over-sized box filled with Styrofoam peanuts. But not to worry — we followed the How to Green Your Recycling advice and reused the box and recycled those pesky things. ::Pomega5
