Cranberries are native to the cooler regions of the United States, Canada and portions of Europe and Asia. They are grown commercially in the United States as a food source and for their use in nutraceutical and cosmeceutical applications.

Organic Cranberry Seed Oil is gaining increasing attention by cosmeceutical manufacturers and the spa and aromatherapy industries due to its significant content of nutritive components including essential fatty acids and antioxidants. It is an extremely stable lipid that has redefined performance and stability standards for oils rich in essential fatty acids.

Natural Sourcing’s superior quality, unrefined, extra virgin Organic Cranberry Seed Oil is carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this remarkably nutritive, cold pressed oil.

Testing indicates that Organic Cranberry Seed Oil possesses the highest quantity of tocotrienols of any vegetable oil. It possesses a unique balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids not found in other oils. Organic Cranberry Seed Oil can aid in the relief of itchy, scaly, irritated skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
