|Antioxidants||Heavy in Antioxidants:|
Not only does it contain about 48% of the daily vitamin C, but also contains other antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and tannins. With all these antioxidants you have one of the ultimate blockers in free radical damage, which is a big cause in aging. The antioxidants in pomegranate are also thought to help provide natural protection against ultraviolet (UV) rays. However, such protection isn’t enough to skip out on daily sunscreen.
|Offers antioxidant protection:|
Tamanu oil is also rich in antioxidants, which have been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of scarring, as well as acne. It also protecting skin from damaging (and aging) free radicals caused by exposure to environmental factors such as sun and pollution.
|It helps protect against sun damage:|
Rosehip oil contains antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins have been shown to synergistically combat visible sun damage. They may also help prevent photoaging. With this in mind, rosehip oil may be used to help reduce the negative effects of UV exposure. But it shouldn’t be used in place of sunscreen.
|Cell Regeneration||Cell Regeneration:|
Pomegranates help protect the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) and helps with skin cell regeneration in the epidermis and dermis (inner layer), increasing circulation and healing the skin, aiding in tissue repair and wound healing.
|Stimulates collagen production to promote wound healing:|
Tamanu oil has wound healing and skin regeneration properties. It's been shown to promote cell proliferation and the production of collagen and glycosaminoglycans. (Also known as GAGs, the latter are polysaccharides that are essential for creating and maintaining healthy collagen and elastin). More collagen
and more GAGs help both with wound healing (it's what makes tamanu oil a good option for healing scars) as well as smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
|Regenerates and heals the skin:|
Because it contains high concentrations of vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, and K, rosehip oil is known for its exceptional regenerative and healing properties.
|Anti-Bacterials||Antimicrobial benefits: Pomegranate is thought to contain natural antimicrobials from vitamin CTrusted Source, which may help fight bacteria and fungus in your skin. Such benefits may help treat P.acnes bacteria, which may be a precursor to acne breakouts.||Has antibacterial properties:|
The oil exhibited high antibacterial and wound-healing activity against bacterial strains involved in acne, including P. acnes
and P. granulosum. There’s also evidence of the oil’s anti-inflammatory properties. Together with its ability to kill P. acnes and P. granulosum, tamanu oil may also be helpful in treating inflamed acne.
For acne-prone skin, rosehip oil can be helpful because it has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, and it has low comedogenicity.
|Anti- Inflammatory||Decreased inflammation: |
Reduced free radical damage can also translate to decreased inflammation in the skin. As such, antioxidants may be able to reduce the symptoms of certain inflammatory skin conditions like acne and eczema.
|Has anti-inflammatory benefits:|
Tamanu oil contains calophyllolide, a molecule well-studied for delivering anti-inflammatory effects similar to that of hydrocortisone. This molecule was also shown to be an integral part of the oil's wound-healing abilities. It also means that the oil could potentially be good for inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, inflames acne or rosacea.
Rosehip is rich in both polyphenols and anthocyanin, which may help reduce inflammation. It also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory effects. With this in mind, rosehip oil may help calm irritation resulting from: Rosacea, Psoriasis, Eczema and Dermatitis
Pomegranates may help protect against premature aging by helping reduce the signs of skin aging caused by sun damage and exposure, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Pomegranates may also help prevent hyperpigmentation and age spots.
Pomegranates promote smooth, firm skin by boosting collagen and elastin production and soften skin.
|Tamanu oil benefits for wrinkles:|
Tamanu oil is an active ingredient used in many skin care products, including anti-aging creams. The oil’s ability to promote collagen and GAG production also plays a role in anti-aging and skin regeneration. Finally, tamanu oil may help prevent wrinkles caused by sun damage.
|It helps boost collagen formation and skin elasticity: Collagen is the building block of skin. It’s essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Your body naturally makes less collagen as you age. Rosehip oil is rich in vitamins A and C, which are both necessary for the production of collagen. Rosehip has also been shown to inhibit the creation of MMP-1, an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the body. With high levels of vitamin C, rosehip seed oil can help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Research shows that after eight weeks, rosehip oil will lead to a significant improvement in crow's-feet wrinkles, the skin's moisture level, and elasticity.|
Since pomegranate oil penetrates deeply into the skin, it is effective for treating dry skin. It soothes dry, cracked, and irritated skin. It contains punicic acid, an omega 5 fatty acid that hydrates and prevents moisture loss.
|Is rich in fatty acids:|
Tamanu oil has a higher fatty acid content than many other oils, making it especially beneficial for addressing dry skin, says Petrillo. More specifically, it contains both oleic and linoleic fatty acids, which may give it powerful moisturising abilities.
|Intensely hydrates and moisturises the skin:|
Rosehip oil contains a wealth of essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acid. Fatty acids help to keep cell walls strong so that they don’t lose water. The many fatty acids in rosehip oil make it an excellent option for hydrating dry, itchy skin. The skin also easily absorbs the oil, allowing its antioxidants to travel deep into the skin’s layers. Moisturising helps lock in your skin’s natural hydration.

|Hyperpigmentation||N/A||N/A||It helps reduce hyperpigmentation:|
Hyperpigmentation occurs when excess melanin forms dark spots or patches on the skin. Rosehip oil is rich in vitamin A. Vitamin A is made up of several nutritional compounds, including retinoids. Retinoids are known for their ability to reduce hyperpigmentation and other visible signs of aging with regular use. Rosehip oil also contains both lycopene and beta carotene. These ingredients are said to have skin-lightening properties, making them staple ingredients in many skin-lightening products.
|Reduce Scars||N/A||Tamanu oil for scars:|
Several studies have found that tamanu oil has a number of properties that can help skin wounds heal faster, reduce inflammation, and promote collagen production. Tamanu oil emulsion was used on hospital patients in two studies to treat resistant and postsurgical wounds. Tamanu oil improved healing and led to significantly less scaring.
|It helps reduce scars:|
Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which are integral for tissue and cell regeneration in the skin. It’s no wonder that the oil has long been used as a folk remedy for wound healing, as well as the reduction of scars and fine lines. Participants with post-surgical scars treated their incision site twice per day with topical rosehip oil. After 12 weeks of use, the group using rosehip oil experienced significant improvements in scar color and inflammation when compared to the group who received no topical treatment.
