The pomegranate is a fruit that offers many benefits for the body, and everything from the seeds to even the whitish part is valued in body care products. At BodyNatur, when developing the “formula” -or rather the “recipe”- for our products, we always select the best ingredients to create the most appropriate range of products and to guarantee users an unbeatable physical and olfactorily experience.
Many people may not have tried pomegranates before, or know that it originates from Asia, somewhere between Iran and the Himalayas in northern India. It is believed to have arrived in Spain via the Silk Route and, despite having always been used primarily as a food, it has also been used as a beauty product applied directly to the skin.
Pomegranates are extremely rich in water, accounting for 80% of its weight, which makes it an excellent moisturising product. It also contains vitamin C, which helps maintain the collagen structure of the skin. This, together with its vitamin E content, means it’s a fantastic antioxidant too. Pomegranate extract makes the skin more supple and helps to restore the natural elasticity of the skin. It also promotes scar healing and improves skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. So, as none of us like to see ourselves ageing, we include pomegranate in our body butter. It reduces cell degeneration and helps prevent ageing of the skin tissue, as well as helping to control body fat and lower blood pressure. And it’s suitable for the whole family.
Pomegranate is a key ingredient in our body care range with its delicious aromas and #WOWTextures. As well as including it in our creamy-textured body butter, we’ve also combined it with red fruits in our rapidly-absorbed sorbet with an aqueous, light texture and in our detoxifying body scrub for effective and gentle exfoliation.
