“A multi-tasking marvel”
Australia's Nature & Health Magazine dubbed Cardea's pomegranate seed oil a multi-tasking marvel for its remarkable internal and external health and beauty benefits.

“Exemplary quality” trialled our pomegranate seed oil with exceptional results. “…the quality of the oil was exemplary and skin texture after using was soft, supple and deeply nourished, with no dry spots or breakouts. The oil is light but potent, and provided great protection on a windy, hot day. ...would certainly suggest giving it a go as a natural supplement to traditional medicinal therapies.”

Australia’s Good Health Magazine said Cardea's pomegranate seed oil is brimming with potent antioxidants and essential fatty acids to counteract free-radical activity and restore radiance and elasticity.

    Lovin' it

    My name is Jack and I have recently been impressed with the effects of the Pomegranate Seed Oil. I am an elite athlete and I am a regular competitor in extreme endurance events. These events require me to be highly active for extended periods of time which can take a massive toll on my body both physically and mentally. After recently completing an all night event I suffered severe chaffing on the inside of my thighs. I was thoroughly impressed with the dramatic effect that the Pomegranate Seed Oil had on my inflamed skin. I applied the oil to the affected area and rested for two hours, when I woke the inflammation had completely reduced and the stinging pain was gone. I was no longer in discomfort and was able to train the following day. No other product I have ever used has worked so quickly or effectively.

    I just wanted to say thank you so much for sending through a sample of the Cardea oil.  I have been using a few drops with moisturizer for the past couple of weeks and already I’ve noticed a difference in how my skin looks and feels.
    The Canberra climate is so drying and for such a long time I’ve been searching for a moisturizer but nothing so far has worked.  Combing the oil with my moisturizer has lead to fantastic results.  My skin looks and feels amazing and that’s just after two weeks!
    Congratulations to you and everyone involved in creating this product… my skin thanks you!

    Cheers Lisa

    Harvested from nature, Cardea’s Pomegranate Seed Oil is:

    • Naturally pure and non toxic - it takes approximately 500kg of fresh pomegranates for 1kg of oil

    • Organically grown - Our oil comes from the seeds of organically grown pomegranates in the Mediterranean. Pomegranates from this region are considered the very best as they contain higher concentration of punicic acid due to climate, soil and traditional farming methods.

    • Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) listed - Cardea's exclusive pomegranate seed oil is listed with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration as a recognised complementary medicine. Cardea is committed to ongoing product testing to ensure customers receive the highest quality, organic pomegranate seed oil available.

    • Suitable for men and women - it has a light 'peanut-like' scent, and a gorgeous natural aroma of melted baking chocolate!

     • Amazing value - The typical small 15-30ml bottles available overseas are insufficient for regular topical use. With a shelf life of up to 24 months, Cardea’s 100ml bottles are simply better value, lasting longer and saving you money.

    Pomegranate seed oil can help fight against ageing and promote more youthful-looking skin. This rich, nutritious oil is known around the world for its natural medicinal and cosmetic properties.

    Due to its high antioxidant activity1, pomegranate seed oil maintains skin cell vitality2. It stimulates keratinocyte production and promotes the regeneration of the skin’s epidermis3

    According to the wikipedia "The keratinocyte is the major constituent of the epidermis, constituting 95% of the cells found there."

    Eczema and psoriasis sufferers can relax now

    Imagine how it would feel to stop the itch without ongoing cortisone treatment or smelly coal tar

    The rich fatty acids within pomegranate seed oil are known to protect the skin4, contributing to the smoothing of wrinkles while helping to soothe and hydrate dry, cracked and mature skin. They provide emolliency, protecting your skin from the drying effects of wind and sun, and a much needed natural treatment option for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis sufferers - not to mention everyday wounds and burns5.

    Not just skin deep. Pomegranate seed oil goes to work for Arthritis sufferers too

    Pomegranate seed oil is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory. Around the world, popularity is growing for its use as a treatment of arthritis and other inflammatory diseases6. Sore joints, sports injuries?
    It’s even great for everyday aches and pains.

    Pomegranate seed oil may be even more remarkable than we first thought. 

    Recent clinical trials reveal even more emerging medical evidence

    If you find this information interesting you may like to register by filling in the form in the next column and we will keep you posted.

    Emerging evidence into pomegranate seed oil suggests its use in the prevention and treatment of several types of cancer and cardiovascular disease7

    Although these findings are in undergoing clinical trials, the thought of applying completely natural organic oil to prevent and treat cardio vascular (heart), cancer and high blood pressure conditions is attractive, compared to ongoing prescription medication.

    Its concentrated blend of powerful phytonutrients and potent antioxidant compounds appear to support the immune system and may also naturally lower blood pressure8.

    Pomegranate seed oil may hold hope for Australian women with breast cancer, or wanting to prevent breast cancer.

    Still early days, but...

    Among its many benefits, clinical research has found potential for pomegranate seed oil in the prevention of breast cancer as it appears to retard oxidation to inhibit breast cancer cell proliferation.9

    Israeli researchers from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology also found that pomegranates could have important implications for breast cancer treatment and the safety of oestrogen replacement therapy.

    Now this is noteworthy

    It was found that pomegranate seed oil triggers apoptosis, a self-destruct mechanism, in breast cancer cells.

    Dr. Ephraim Lansky, who headed the study, said: "Pomegranates seem to replace the oestrogen often prescribed to protect postmenopausal women against heart disease and osteoporosis, while selectively destroying dependent-dependent cancer cells." In the first study, laboratory-grown breast cancer cells were treated for three days with pomegranate seed oil.

    The researchers observed apoptosis in 37 to 56 per cent of the cancer cells, depending on the dose of oil applied. Dr Lanskey said: "Pomegranates are unique in that the hormonal combinations inherent in the fruit seem to be helpful both for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer".10

    With these fantastic applications you may ask why has 100% pure organic pomegranate seed oil never made it here before.

    You see, by adding smaller amounts of other less refined oil to carrier creams the benefits are reduced but the distribution and profits are easier to make.

    How to use pomegranate seed oil

    Don’t throw out what works for you - just add to it. You can benefit immediately without throwing away a cent.

    Remember, pomegranate seed oil can be mixed into any existing face cream or body cream you may already have. You may also choose to apply it in its pure form for greater intensity.

    “We have chosen to offer the finest quality 100% pure pomegranate seed oil so that Australians can integrate it into their existing health care and beauty regime without throwing away the products they already know and trust.” Sera Shepherd, Cardea Director
