Cranberries are widely recognised as having one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of any fruit or vegetable. Loaded with an abundance of additional vitamins and nutrients, plus antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties, cranberry extract is often used in skin and hair care products to help in the treatment of skin dryness, to boost radiance and improve skin elasticity.


Cranberry extract’s high antioxidant content can be helpful in protecting skin against damaging environmental stressors. High in polyphenols and vitamins C and E, cranberry extract is said to help combat free radical damage and slow the effects of premature ageing including fine lines, hyperpigmentation scarring and loss of elasticity.

Vitamin C, in particular, is crucial to the production of collagen. These nutritious berries are also a natural source of flavonoids (an antioxidant) and salicylic acid (a beta hydroxy acid or BHA). Both of these compounds have astringent and antiseptic properties that can help to reduce sebum, clear pores and minimise the appearance of acne.

Cranberry extract is ideal for a wide range of products intended to revitalise the appearance of skin and hair and when included in a formula it offers extra benefits and functionalities that include improved emollience, enhanced viscosity and non-irritating properties.

Cranberry extract can be incorporated into a wide variety of nourishing, water based, skin and hair care products such as:
Face creams
Eye creams
Gels
Toners
Facial mists
Cleansers
Lotions
Shower gels
Face masks
Shampoos
Conditioners
Hair masks
Styling gels
