The benefits of eating pomegranates can never be over emphasized primarily because they are very rich in antioxidants which will help our body get rid of toxins and aid cellular regeneration. Thanks to Dr. Organic, we can now also enjoy this super-fruit's benefits on our skin.
The Bioactive skin care brand offers a full range of organic pomegranate products which basically cover all personal hygiene needs - toothpaste, anti-aging creams, shower gels and so on.
Following the brand's launch event last month, I have had the opportunity to try out the Organic Pomegranate Soap which is actually made with organic blackberry as well! The soap comes in a carton box and it is pretty much what you expect a soap to look like, except that this one in particular has blackberry seeds embedded in it to serve as exfoliating agents. Moreover, the soap has a rich, pomegranate fragrance.
I am not usually keen on using soap to wash for I much prefer shower gels but I was instantly intrigued upon learning that this soap is especially good at alleviating those small bumps that a lot of people get on the back of their arms and thighs; a common skin condition known as Keratosis Pilaris. and which sadly, I suffer from.
I started using this soap right away and after only two uses, I could already see that the nasty little bumps have started to diminish and today, after just three weeks, I only have a few more to get rid of! The only downside comes from the fact that I still feel, this soap dries my skin a little so what I usually do, is I first cleanse the affected areas with it, then cleanse the rest of my body with shower gel to counteract the dryness.
Nonetheless, I would still recommend people suffering from Keratosis Pilaris to give this soap a go! As a side note, the soap is free from parabens, SLS, artificial colours, frangrances and harsh preservatives. It is not tested on animals.
Dr.Organic Pomegranate Soap can be found at authorized pharmacies across Malta & Gozo and it retails for a mere €2.87.
