Pomegranate Seed Oil: A Potent Antioxidant

Article Summary: Pomegranate seed oil is a key ingredient in our Glow Face & Body Balm. Pomegranate seed oil acts as a potent antioxidant that hydrates, soothes, and enhances our skin's natural youthful glow and texture. Find out more about this incredibly powerful ingredient and which Good & Simple product(s) use this oil.



Known as the "jewel of winter", pomegranates are a fruit that have been consumed since ancient times for their high nutritional value. In recent years, the benefits and properties of pomegranate seed oil have gained greater attention and studied in more depth due to its fatty acid profile and high antioxidant level.



The pomegranate seed oil that we use in the Glow Face & Body Balm follows strict quality standards to ensure the benefits of the oil are intact and remain after the seeds are pressed and the oil is collected. To ensure we are using premium quality pomegranate seed oil, we require the following attributes when we source this amazingly powerful and nourishing seed oil as outlined below.


  • USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO, Cold-Pressed, Unrefined


  • Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-aging properties
  • Promotes collagen and elastin production, enhances skin texture
  • Omega-5 fatty acid reduces skin inflammation and helps with skin repair and hydration
  • Hydrating and soothing relief for sunburns and other skin irritations
  • High in antioxidants to counteract free radicals that lead to skin aging; contains ellagic acid to help lighten and brighten the skin
