It possesses a unique composition of fatty acids, mainly punicic acid (CLA), and tocopherols. Pomegranate seed oil can be effective in treating dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and sunburned skin. It also has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Its high polyphenol content makes it a strong antioxidant and gives it a stable shelf life. More info: www.naturalsourcing.com or (800) 340-0080.
