With Standardized Pomegranate Extract and Pomegranate Seed Oil for
Anti-Inflammatory, Antioxidant and Cell Protecting Benefits
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to the use of pomegranate in skincare for anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and cell membrane benefits, not everything with pomegranate is created equal; it is the quality of the extract that counts! The Murad Vitalic(R) line with Energizing Pomegranate Complex(TM) offers standardized Pomegranate Extract and Seed Oil to deliver results.
The Energizing Pomegranate Complex(TM) is Dr. Murad's exclusive blend of Artemia Extract and Pomegranate Extract, plus Pomegranate Seed Oil. This standardized Pomegranate Extract contains Ellagic Acid, a powerful antioxidant that effectively protects the skin from the free radicals prevalent in smoke, pollution and ultra-violet radiation. The Pomegranate Seed Oil contains Punicic Acid, a potent anti-inflammatory with Oleic and Linoleic Acids, both vital for cell regeneration and proliferation. Artemia, a natural marine complex containing GP4G, (Diguanosine Tetraphosphate) has been shown to boost cell metabolism and stimulate cell regeneration in the epidermis. When used together, extracts of Artemia, Pomegranate and Pomegranate Seed Oil create a dynamic blend that keeps cells functioning at their highest level.
"I've been studying the effects of Pomegranate on the skin, since the
early 90's, years before it became a widely recognized fruit. Through my
research in Ethnobotony, the use of plants indigenous to a region, I've
found that Pomegranates were considered one of the first medicines known to
man. A plant that thrives in the harsh sun and found in dry, hot areas of
the world, Pomegranate Extract and Pomegranate Seed Oil provide potent
antioxidants and skin cell energizers. Eat it, drink it, and most
importantly, look for a standardized extract to take internally AND to
apply topically as part of your daily skincare regimen," explains Dr.
Howard Murad, dermatologist, CEO and founder of Murad, Inc. "There are many
products on the market that promote pomegranate as an ingredient, however
it's important to look for a standardized extract of the plant and the seed
oil. That's what makes a significant difference."
