Homemade Pomegranate Peel Extract

I've been reading a lot about anti-oxidantal activity of Pomegranate Peel Extract and recently decided to try it in my own "skin care line".

I've made my own Homemade Pomegranate Peel Extract using a mixture of Glycerin and Vodka as a solvent.

I've got two kind of extracts: the first one was on the ratio of Glycerin and Vodka 1:1 and the second one was on 5:1. The second extract is more powerfull, IMHO.

I'm adding this PPE to my toners and it's amazing.

Sounds exciting, might give that a try.
Seeing as where I am not going to eat the
peel anyway. Thanks!

Hi, I've recently been getting interested in making my own skin care products (Though I have much to learn). I am wondering how you chose your solvents? To that best I can decipher, the original study claims the active ingredient is water soluble. Also... I'm curious if you have any sources to share regarding these types of questions.. solvents, extraction times etc. thanks and good luck!

Do you just use glycerin and vodka for the pomegranate extract?
