Cranberry Seed Powder is from crushed seeds, which have been freeze dried, from Vaccinium cacrocarpon fruit. This is not the same as the fruit exfoliants that are, more readily, available in the market. Like Bamboo Powder, Cranberry Seed Powder is a smooth, circular, bead powder. It is not the, chunky, abrasive texture of typical fruit exfoliants.
Cranberry is considered one of the 'super foods' due to high levels of nutrients and other active compounds. Well known for their astringent properties. Lesser known is that they contain significant amounts of natural salicylic acid, manganese, and vitamins C and K, making the cranberry a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, offering skin smoothing and irritation quenchng activity.
The addition of Cranberry Seed Powder, to your scrubs, and skin polishing, products will generate gentle exfoliation due to the small, smooth, particles, making it perfect for facial applications. Helps to restore the look, and feel, of youthful skin by removing dull, dry, patchy skin. Cranberry Seed Powder, in a scrub, creates a lovely, reddish, speckled product with a natural appeal.
