Information and Frequently Asked Questions

Pomegranate Seed Oil is a carrier oil, which means it is used to dilute an essential oil so that it can be applied to the skin.

Royale Afrique du Sud has the oil available in its pure, unscented state or in a scented option, which is simply the pure oil that has been infused with Neroli essential oil. Neroli adds a wonderful, mild scent to the oil and is also known to help regenerate skin cells and works to rejuvenate skin that has suffered the effects of scarring, stretch marks and broken capillaries.

Where on the body can I use Pomegranate Seed Oil?
Pomegranate Seed Oil can be used on the face as a daily serum. The unscented oil is also effective in treating eczema, psoriasis, cradle cap, sunburn and minor skin wounds.

Will Pomegranate Seed Oil leave my skin feeling oily?
Not at all. Pomegranate Seed Oil is a dry oil that draws into the skin almost immediately and works to enhance the texture of your skin instantly. As such, Pomegranate Seed Oil is an effective primer for makeup foundation.

What are the benefits of using Pomegranate Seed Oil regularly?
Pomegranates are one of only a handful of plants that contain lipid punicic acid, a powerful antioxidant that helps to fight the free radicals that cause ageing. Pomegranate Seed Oil also helps to regenerate the top layer of the skin.

Can I use Pomegranate Seed Oil with my other skin products?
Pomegranate Seed Oil is a carrier oil, which means it carries other oils and products onto the skin, making it ideal to use in combination with other skin products and makeup.

Does Pomegranate Seed Oil take the place of my moisturiser?
Not necessarily. Your skin still needs water, oil, antioxidants and sunscreen. Moisturiser adds the water, which is why it is still a good idea to use it. Pomegranate Seed Oil and moisturiser work in harmony to leave your skin feeling both hydrated and soft.

Do I apply moisturiser or Pomegranate Seed Oil first?
The general guideline is as follows:
If you use a light moisturiser, apply the moisturiser first.
If you use a heavy moisturiser, apply the Pomegranate Seed Oil first.
While this is a guideline, it is best to experiment and see what works best for you.

Is Pomegranate Seed Oil safe to use on sensitive skin, or skin that is prone to allergic reaction?
Yes, definitely, though we recommend using the unscented oil in such cases. As a carrier oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil is very soft on the skin.
