The first thing you'll notice about Pomega5's absolutely delectable line of skincare products is its fresh, delicate aroma, courtesy of the biodynamic and organic pomegranate seed oil the company partially derives its name from. (The other half of its name comes from the anti-inflammatory omega 5 fatty acids found in the aforementioned oil.)
Handcrafted from certified-organic ingredients, Pomega5's antioxidant-rich collection is free of parabens, synthetic chemicals, and perfumes. The complete Pomega5 skin system comprises five essential steps. 1. Cleansing: With edible-grade extra virgin olive oil as its base, the Pomegranate Cleansing Bar whisks dirt and makeup away without leaving you that dry, tight feeling. Myrtle and eucalyptus essential oils clean and disinfect, while tiny bark particles on one side of the bar slough off dead skin.
2. Toning: Most cleansers are now pH balanced, which means that toners aren't as essential as they used to be—so if you're trying to save money, feel free to nix this from your beauty regimen. Still, a few spritzes of the alcohol-free Revitalizing Nourishing Toner were indeed revitalizing and pores looked noticeably tighter.
3. Nourishing: A night-repair treatment for dry and mature skin, the ampoules that comprise the Revitalizing Treatment for Skin pack the concentrated powers of pomegranate seed, rosehip, calendula, and jojoba oils for ultra-deep hydration and nourishment.
4. Repairing: Light and non-greasy, the Healing Cream is perfect for most skin types, although dry and mature skin types may want to look for something a little more emollient, especially in winter—or just stick to the ampoules.
5. Protecting: Pomega5's Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil Complex soft-gel capsules are a daily dietary supplement designed to promote glowing skin; breast, uterine, and prostate health; and metabolic health.
