Cranberry

Vaccinium macrocapon 

This oil is a deep yellow colour due to the presence of significant amounts of provitamin A carotenoids that are powerful antioxidants to prevent free radical damage and support the formation of collagen and elastin. Vitamin E further enhances its antioxidant activity while phytosterols and phospholipids help the skin remain elastic and flexible, supporting skin tissues and reducing formation of lines.

 This nourishing oil is absorbed fairly quickly, providing relief to dry, scaly and irritated conditions. Richly endowed with a wide variety of nutrients including polyphenols, carotenes, quercetin, anthocyanin and proanthocyanins it is deeply nourishing. 

Having equal ratios of omega 3, 6 it can reduce inflammation and provide deep conditioning of the skin.

Tannins keep the oil light feeling and provide antibacterial properties to improve blemishes and acne. Beta-sitosterol eases redness and itching, reduces inflammation and repairs and regenerates tissues.

A source of the phenolic acid, Ellagic acid, an antioxidant compound that protects skin collagen and promotes cellular regeneration. It also has anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antiseptic properties and can help to strengthen thinning skin.
