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.


Dear Sera,
What can I say,  but what an absolute delight it is to be using your oil on my face.  I have been inspired by Pomegranates for many years and to use your amazing oil on my face is such a joy each night...it is now 3 weeks since receiving my first bottle of Pomegranate oil and what a difference it has made to my skin...my skin glows and feels tighter...it feels alive and nourished.  As a woman in my late 40’s, it is so nice to be part of nature’s best kept secret...thanks so much for creating such a wonderful product and sharing it with woman all around the world...how lucky am I to be able to have glowing skin in my 40’s...thanks to Cardea’s Pomegranate Oil...
Many Thanks,

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

Pomegranate Seed Oil:

♣ Is a natural anti-inflammatory3
♣ Promotes regeneration of the skin4, helping to speed recovery of minor wounds and burns
♣ Stimulated the production of keratinocytes in early studies, demonstrating an ability to regenerate and thicken the epidermis: both characteristics of younger skin5
♣ May protect the skin against the threats of ultra-violet light (pomegranate extract) helping to restore its youthful appearance6
♣ Has been used as a highly-beneficial addition to formulations intended to reduce swelling and ease muscular aches and pains7

Health & Medicinal Benefits

Pomegranate Seed Oil has overwhelming health and medicinal benefits. We encourage you to review our research page for published studies and findings into the Pomegranate’s unique healing properties.

Pomegranate Seed Oil:

♣ Contains six kinds of fatty acids, including punicic acids, linolenic acid, linoleic acid, oieic acid, palmitic acid and stearic acid. Of these, the punicic acid accounts for 86% - this is a highly unsaturated fatty acid
♣ Is one of the only plant sources of conjugated fatty acids and it contains an abundant amount of punicic acid, a compound closely related to conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The punicic acid found in Pomegranate Seed Oil and has been called a "super CLA" whose effect is even more potent than ordinary CLA
♣ Has been shown to possess anti-invasive, anti-angiogenic activity and the ability to suppress inflammation9
♣ Contains rich fatty acids that can protect, soothe and calm the skin, and reduce hyperpigmentation of scars10
♣ Has anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties that suggest its possible use as a therapy or adjunct for prevention and treatment of several types of cancer and cardiovascular disease11
♣ Is popular in the treatment of arthritis and other inflammatory diseases12
♣ May promote faster wound healing and quick relief from minor skin irritations and discomfort
♣ May have cholesterol lowering and preventing effects for cardiovascular and other chronic diseases13
♣ Has been shown in studies to retard oxidation to inhibit breast cancer cell proliferation14 and trigger apoptosis (a self destruct mechanism in breast cancer cells) in clinical trials15
♣ May replace needed estrogen often prescribed to protect postmenopausal women against heart disease and osteoporosis, while selectively destroying estrogen-dependent cancer cells16
♣ May have an effect on several disease processes such as Alzheimer’s disease, osteoarthritis neonatal brain injury, male infertility and obesity17 (further studies required)
♣ Supports the immune system
♣ Has been shown to inhibit the upstream eicosanoid enzyme phospholipase A2 expressed by human prostate cancer cells18
♣ Significantly suppresses the incidence of and multiplicity of carnionomas (animal study)19
♣ Contains Phytosterols (and ceramides) which are effective in blocking the reduced collagen synthesis after UV irradiation and even stimulating synthesis20
Contains Polyphenolic compounds which potently and synergistically suppress human breast and prostate cancer in vitro and ex vivo21
May have potent antioxidant compounds that may reduce platelet aggregation and naturally lower blood pressure, factors that can prevent attacks and strokes.22
Has shown promise in early studies as a naturally-occurring preventative agent against colon cancer development23
May reduce the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Researchers concluded that long-term use of pomegranate extract may keep blood vessels supple24
Has been found to be effective for controlling oral inflammation as well as bacteria and fungal counts in periodontal disease and Candida-associated denture stomatitis (when used topically)25
