Pomegranate extract is rich in tannins (specific group of antioxidant polyphenols) that not only provide protection against free-radical damage but also have a mild astringent effect on the skin helping to minimize pore size. Pomegranate, a deciduous shrub that can grow to the size of a small tree, has been cultivated in Greece since prehistoric times. In Greece, Pomegranate has been a symbol of passion, life, abundance and fertility. On New Year's Day, households crack it open on the doorstep so the seeds disperse. If it breaks into many pieces, then the luck is abundant.
