As well as adding a fruity decoration to product cranberries can also be used to gently exfoliate skin. They are rich in tocotrienols and tocopherols that together make up vitamin E, giving cranberry oil protective and antioxidant properties. They also contain benzoic acid which acts as a natural preservative.
