Cranberry Seed ExtractExciting functionality in a consumer-appealing package
Put a stable cranberry extract on your label and deliver balanced Omega-3s, tocopherols, phytosterols and more
In recent years, the physiological and health benefits of cranberries have entered the consciousness of consumers. This 'superfruit' is showing up in a wide range of consumer products because of its natural status and the range of interesting nutrients it offers in skin care, hair care and nutritional products. There is no doubt that cranberries sell – particularly to the younger woman demographic. They also have a strong association with the 'natural' trend that is taking over the consumer products market. And while the whole cranberry is interesting in addressing a number of wellness issues, the real powerhouse of the cranberry exists in its smallest component – the seed.
