The Dish on Cranberries

Sauce, Juice or Medicine?

Cranberries may be best known for being a side dish at Thanksgiving or as a thirst quenching juice but their potential health benefits may be their true value.  It’s little wonder that you will find cranberry extract in the Kiss My Face Cranberry Orange Lip Balm SPF 15.  The tiny red fruit is bursting with antioxidants that neutralize the free radicals that cause aging.  Cranberries are one of nature's most beneficial emollients and help your skin hold onto moisture.  They are also rich in vitamin C which helps with collagen production.  Native Americans were the first to use cranberries as food as well as wound medicine and as a dye calling the red berries Sassamanash and Ibimi — translated as bitter berried.
