Cranberry Seed Oil

Hey Y'all!

I hope this post finds everyone having a fabulous d
ay. Cactus & Ivy utilizes oils that are high in Omega 3, Vitamin A, C, D, E & F, Oleic Acid, Palmitoleic Acid and Linoleic Acid to revitalize and restore the skins normal balance. One such oil is Cranberry Seed Oil (INCI: Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil).

Cranberry Seed Oil is highly moisturizing and easily penetrates the skin. It is the only carrier oil available with a one to one ratio of Omega 6 (linoleic) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic) fatty acids. It also contributes to the lipid barrier protection of the skin and helps with moisture retention. It is rich in tocopherols (vitamin E), Vitamin A, tocotrienols, phospholipids and phytosterols. Cranberry seed oil can aid in the relief of itchy, scaly, irritated skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. You can find this wonderful ingredient in our Cran Citrus Polish.

Each day, I will introduce a specialty ingredient and tell you where you can find it in our product line. Also, I will be announcing our *New Fall Product Line in the coming weeks. I am putting the finishing touches on ingredient choices and I promise it will be delish!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic week! I have a favorite quote from the movie "Renaissance Man", that starred Danny Devito and was filmed at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

"The choices you make dictate the life you lead." Wow! That says it all!
