Cranberry Seed Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the robust perennial species of cranberry, Vaccinium macrocarpon. This hardy plant thrives in the rugged, sandy soil of northeastern North America. Its resilient berries have a 16‑month maturation cycle, with seeds boasting an 85% fatty acid profile rich in omega‑3s, ‑6s, and ‑9s. Cranberries and their seeds share similarities with many botanicals; plants that thrive in harsh conditions develop compounds essential for survival that can in turn prove to be beneficial for your skin.
The ideal 1:1 ratio of omega‑3 and ‑6, complemented with omega‑9 fatty acids, found in Cranberry Seed Oil penetrate skin-cell membranes. This process strengthens the epidermal lipid barrier to retain moisture, which translates into succulent, younger-looking skin. These polyunsaturated fatty acids also support collagen and elastin formation, the connective tissues that make skin firm and youthful looking. When skin stays firm and retains elasticity, it looks great.
New Roots Herbal’s Cranberry Seed Oil is also rich in proanthocyanidins; powerful antioxidants that help reduce the signs of aging skin. Naturally occurring vitamins A and E add to its antioxidant properties.
New Roots Herbal’s Cranberry Seed Oil is unrefined and has a subtle, pleasant aroma that’s a perfect fit for skin-care application. It penetrates deep within the skin for great results, so you can face the day looking and feeling terrific.
