Happy National Pomegranate Month! We didn’t know such a lengthy event existed but this ancient deciduous shrub is worth celebrating. The fruit itself is deliciously sweet, good on taste buds, and has a ton of health and beauty benefits. Available from September through January, fresh pomegranates are rich in vitamins, potassium, and fiber and can help lower the risk of heart attacks and protect against prostate cancer. They’re also full of antioxidants to replenish moisture in parched skin using natural oils.
We’re loving the fun and versatile fruit. This season, go ahead and enjoy some new pomegranate-infused personal care products that’ll leave skin nourished, super soft, and succulently fragrant.
Nature’s Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Cleansing Bar contains ultra-hydrating ingredients, such as Shea Butter, Vitamin E, and apricot kernel oil, to deliver long-lasting hydration. Plus, the pomegranate sunflower extracts deliver antioxidants to give skin the healthy boost it needs as colder months approach.
Additionally, Pomegranate Sunflower Lotion is formulated to defend against the environment’s damaging effects/stress, and signs of aging, to promote younger-looking skin. The luxurious cream is suitable for all skin types, but ideal for dry damaged pelts, and will have you feeling so pampered.
We’ve become fans of Nature’s Gate, and not just for its products. The company combines decades of experience in the natural products industry with modern formulations to create innovative lines for loads of health and beauty needs (i.e. hair care, skin care, oral care, etc.) They ensure all packaging is recyclable and made with recycled materials when possible, and never test on animals. Rather, all products are Vegan. Kudos to this responsible corporate citizen! Nature’s Gate products are available at health and natural food stores across the U.S. and Canada and at http://www.natures-gate.com.
Aubrey Pomegranate Crème de la Shave features pomegranate extract to keep legs feeling silky smooth and protected from free radicals. The pomegranate improves skin quality while the apricot kernel oil softens and conditions. The scent is exotic, tropical, and just wonderful.
