The only drawback was that good sources of Omega 3 and 6 oils came from fish oil which is not that great smelling, and for that reason was never much used in skincare products. But with cranberry oil, this has changed, as it provides these fatty acids without a fishy smell and is great to help nourish the skin and to improve moisture retention, and with this increasing skin smoothness, elasticity and suppleness. It has a near 1:1 ratio between the Omega 3 and Omega 6 which makes it an ideal oil to use.
