Pomegranate enchants with its scarlet curves and its powerful evocation of a dreamy Orient. Big and fleshy, its thick peel contains a multitude of small seeds with a tangy juicy pulp. Cultivated for millennia, it symbolises immortality and fertility. The Pomegranate tree is also mentioned in the rites of passage of several cultures, from India to Portugal.
The Pomegranate can survive in extreme and variable conditions. Its concentration of aquaporins, the small channels that regulate the water supply in cells, varies according to its needs. This is why this plant can grow in the presence of a high excess of humidity and withstands both drought and cold.
This feature also explains the cosmetic benefits it brings to our skin (hydration, increased collagen synthesis) and this is also why it has been considered a natural beauty secret since antiquity in the Middle East.
