Skincare 101 - Ingredient Crush: Pomegranate Sterols

May 08, 2020 2 min read

Organic Pomegranate Sterols is an evidence-based active ingredient that helps protect the outer layer of your skin, boost cell regeneration by increasing circulation, protect from free radical damage and environmental stressors. Not only does this powerhouse ingredient help protect the epidermis and skin cell regeneration, but it also increases circulation and healing to the skin. There’s more to Pomegranate than meets the eye. The evidence-based ingredient helps repair skin from UV damage by acting as a skin protector from sun exposure which further helps reduce hyperpigmentation. It also promotes youthful skin due to its small molecule structure that deeply penetrates into skin, effectively treating dry and irritated skin. 

Similar to cholesterol, plant sterols help reduce trans-epidermal water loss, locking in moisture.  When our skin is exposed to adverse weather, temperature or seasonal changes, even overexposure to the sun, our protective barrier is compromised.  In lips, the moisture content and barrier function are much lower than on the rest of the skin, making them easily susceptible to dryness. This phytosterol will aid in the barrier protection.  This ingredient also offers antioxidant protection from free radical damage and has anti-inflammatory properties.

In addition to delivering skin-transforming nutrients to the skin, this super fruit ingredient can be used as a natural replacement for synthetic materials.
