Overview:

Pomega5 comes from Tzeria Sofer. As a young child, she became fascinated by ancient medicine and botanicals. This fascination later led to a career as she started a wellness clinic, but her career took a turn for the better after a patient told her about pomegranate seed oil. After doing some investigating, she realized that the oil had the ability to reverse years of skin damage. Drawing on her own knowledge as a nutritionist, Tzeria began formulating her own creams based on pomegranate oil, after some encouragement from her friends, she decided to turn her hobby into a business. After working with doctors and chemist, she managed to create Pomega5. A natural brand that focuses in on the power of pomegranate seed oil.

The Good:

Pomega5 has been able to obtain a very positive rating from the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Database (1-2 rating). They’ve managed to do so by using no parabens, petrochemicals, or synthetics and remain cruelty free. The brand refrains from using fillers and thanks to botanical preservatives, freshness can last for up to two years. Pomega5’s manufacturing practices are also noteworthy. Not only do they source nearly 100% of their ingredients from biodynamic and organically farmed land, they produce the products in a certified green lab. The central idea behind Pomega5 is the fatty acid Omega 5 which is found in pomegranate seed oil. The fatty acid has been known to repair damaged cells, is a high antioxidant, and supports the body’s resilience against inflammation.

The Bad:
Products may be on the high side for some, a cleansing bar costs $22. Also linalool is a listed ingredient in some of the products. Linalool breaks down when it comes in contact with oxygen and in a patch test in Sweden, 5%-7% of patients tested were allergic to the oxidized version of linalool.

The Truth:

Pomega5 should be praised not only for their products but for their means of creating them. These responsible practices and the fact that it takes 500lbs of pomegranates to make one pound of oil does not come cheap and as a result Pomega5 falls in a middle to high price range of $20-$145.
