Nature is amazing.
Take the humble Cranberry. Makes a great drink and is really good for you with high antioxidant levels.
This antioxidant capability also makes cranberries important in skin care, as they can protect the skin from damaging free radicals. Among other negatives, free radical can accelerate the appearance of aging.
The biggest excitement about cranberry seed oil, however, is that it is the only oil known to have a perfect ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. That translates to exceptional absorption into the skin and super hydration. It also means your skin is more likely to absorb the potent antioxidants, Vitamin E, and other nutrients in the oil.
Ironically, Cranberry seeds used to be discarded but now, through a cold press process, oil can be extracted from the seed, which produces a golden or yellow oil with a fruity aroma.
Cranberry seed oil contains a variety of nutrients and compounds that provide benefits to the skin. The main benefit of this oil, however, is its ability to absorb so well. Here’s a glance at some of the nutrients and their benefits:
- Tocotrienols and tocopherols:These are forms of vitamin E that act as strong antioxidants, protecting the skin from free radical damage. They also work as natural preservatives.
- Fatty acids:Cranberry contains omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 essential fatty acids, the only oil with a natural ratio of the three. This means the oil is a super moisturizer because it absorbs so well into the skin. It also helps the skin retain moisture through contributing to the skin’s structure and barrier formation. It is also good for aging, rough, dry, and scaly skin.
- Antioxidants:The powerful antioxidants in cranberry oil help protect the skin against free radical and sun damage.
Particularly important, these unique nutrients are great anti-aging formulas helping to protect the skin from the elements that damage it, while moisturizing and strengthening, helping to improve skin elasticity and firmness. If you’re seeing dull, dry, sagging, skin, this unique oil is the perfect remedy.
