I have recently been ordering and using pomegranate oil.
I ordered from one seller and the oil smells extremely fruity (to the point of smelling almost artificial, though the seller insists there is no adulteration), is bright golden (almost like jojoba oil), and is slightly thinner than other pomegranate oils I’ve tried in the past. It also feels “drier” on the skin (ie: it soaks in faster with less oily residue).
I then ordered another brand and the smell is barely fruity and has a more “earthy”, “oily” smell, the colour is slightly more subdued golden, and it feels thicker. It also sinks in much slower and feels heavier on the skin.
Both are cold-pressed, unrefined, and certified organic. One is sourced from Turkey and the other is from the Netherlands.
Is it normal to have this much variation between oils from different sources?
