Most of us had probably encountered cranberry seed oil or cranberry in some form before, either in a supplement or perhaps even cranberry juice, no judgements if alcohol was involved. I bet you never realised just how amazing this little ‘super-berry’ actually is. New studies are just coming out with evidence to prove how antioxidant-rich they are. They outrank every fruit and vegetable in the world when it comes to antioxidant value!
Antioxidants Of Cranberry Seed Oil
When it comes to skincare, antioxidants matter! That’s because free radicals are the ‘nasty, scavenger cells’ in our skin that speed up our ageing processes and lead to skin damage such as pigmentation, loss of elasticity, wrinkles etc. Antioxidants defend your body from the damage and inflammation free radicals cause.
Cranberry Seed Oil is cold pressed from the seed of the Cranberry, meaning the extraction process does not damage the vitamins through heat extraction. It is a unique oil that contains:
- Very high essential fatty acids.
- Tocopherols and tocotrienols, vitamin E.
- Contains high amounts of phytosterols.
- Balanced 1:1 ratio of omega 3 to omega six essential fatty acids which give it excellent antioxidant activity and skin absorbency and delivery.
Skin Benefits Of Cranberry Seed Oil
Improves Elasticity & Firms Skin
Cranberry Seed Oil is rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin A, C, E and K and natural fatty acids that can help to improve the skin’s elasticity, boosts collagen and firm skin.
Age Spots & Pigmentation
The antioxidant activity and natural SPF found in Cranberry Seed Oil fights environmental stressors and can help reduce melatonin production in the skin – resulting in a reduced appearance of age spots/pigmentation.
Omega Fatty Acids provide deep hydration to the skin and lock in moisture – providing long-term moisturisation, softness and plumpness.
High Absorbency & Quick Delivery
The balanced ratio of omega 3 to omega six essential fatty acids in cranberry seed oil is fantastic. It means the cranberry seed oil absorbs into the skin fast, bringing with it Vitamin E and the other fantastic constituents.
Soothes Sensitive & Inflamed Skin
Organic acids such as Benzoic Acid present in cranberry seed oil fights skin irritation and inflammation. The rich Omega 3 and six fatty acids help to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier, this means it is the perfect ingredient to calm inflamed and dry skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.
Healthy Scalp & Hair
The high vitamin E levels nourish the scalp and promote lustrous hair while the essential fatty acids fight dry scalp conditions like dandruff. The balanced fatty acids also make it a non-greasy oil, the perfect combination for shiny, healthy hair minus the greasy feel. Where you can find Cranberry Seed Oil in our products:
