Aldivia launches a virgin oil of organic pomegranate seeds

Aldivia, a company specialised in the sourcing, the manufacture and sale of botanical lipids, carries on the development of its range of organic certified vegetable oils. Since spring, Aldivia’s has been offering an oil extracted from pomegranate seeds.

Pomegranate is a fruit, the size of a big apple, which contains hundreds of red and very juicy grains, each of them bearing a small triangular seed that produces the oil.

If pomegranate juice is currently highly appreciated for the antioxidizing virtues of its polyphenols, pomegranate seed oil is also unique by the presence in very large quantities (from 60 to 85 %) of a particular fatty acid: punicic acid.

This polyunsaturated conjugated fatty acid (the famous CLA, Conjugated Linolenic Acids) is appreciated for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. The unsaponifiable fraction of the oil, rich in tocopherol, squalene and phytosterols, is also interesting. These actives confer to pomegranate seed oil its antioxidizing and emollient virtues, and its capacity to help skin renewal, by activating the proliferation of keratinocytes,” says Aldivia in a release.

According to Aldivia, these properties make virgin organic pomegranate seed oil ideal for the formulation of anti-ageing serums, moisturizing creams, as well as soothing cares for irritated and dry skins. It also is very interesting when included in massage oils.

Victoria’s Secret or the failure of a conservative positioning?

When the Victoria’s Secret show was cancelled it didn’t come as a surprise. In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to 2018, (...)
