INCI Name: Oxycoccus Palustris Seed Oil
Arctic Cranberry (Oxycoccus palustris) is different from the regular cranberries eaten at Christmas. They are smaller and grow in the wild, in peat bogs and moist forest areas of the Arctic tundra.
Arctic Cranberry Seed Oil has even higher levels of Tocotrienols than Lingonberry Seed Oil, having the highest known natural content of Gamma-Tocotrienol. It also has a near-perfect ratio of Omega 3, 6 and 9 Essential Fatty Acids which absorb well into the skin, providing this ingredient with powerful moisturising and anti-ageing qualities. The oil has a softening and rejuvenating effect, it is perfect for mature skin. It is also used as a mild UV filter that protects the skin from the harmful effects of sunlight.
In the Arctic marshlands, Arctic Cranberry accumulates tocotrienols, a rare type of natural Vitamin E. The unique feature of Arctic Cranberry is that it has the tocotrienols in a concentration between 40 to 60 times greater than the better-known alpha-tocopheral. Tocotrienols are natural antioxidants and members of the Vitamin E family. Their antioxidant properties are much higher than those of Tocopherols (more commonly found members of the vitamin E family). Tocotrienols prevent the destruction of cell membranes, protect your skin from harmful external factors, help to slow down the ageing process.
