For more than 5,000 years, the pomegranate has been a symbol of life and fertility and metaphorical references of ‘the beauty of a woman’ have been attached to it since antiquity. Today, its scientifically recognised efficacy and highly anti-oxidative effects have been utilised in Weleda’s new Pomegranate Regenerating Body Care range, the optimal companion for the skin’s natural ageing process and a holistic, pro-ageing solution.
Weleda’s European holistic esthetician Lilith Schwertle offers insight on the benefits of pomegranate. “As we age, our skin’s own rebuilding functions begin to slow,” she says. “The active ingredients in pomegranate seed oil, including fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, help encourage your skin’s natural regeneration process.”

Extracts of Golden Millet and Sunflower Petals round off the deliciously skin renewing formula.
