Dried cranberries, dried apricots, dried cranberries and dried cranberry sauce all have whitening properties, according to a study published Monday by researchers at the University of Alberta.
The study, which focused on how the different ingredients work together to enhance the appearance of whitening creams and soaps, is one of the first to show that different types of emulsives can enhance whitening, according the study’s lead author, Dr. Jules D. Blais.
Dried cranberry is the most commonly used ingredient in whitening and is used in the popular Dove whitening facial whitening moisturizer, according a news release from the University.
Dry cranberries can also be used as a base for facial whiteners.
However, the researchers said that they did not find evidence that cranberries had the same whitening potential as other ingredients, including those in the emulsifier.
In addition, dried fruit, dried grapes and dried fruit juice were not included in the study.
However, the study did find that cranberry extract had an overall positive effect on the whiteness of whiteners, even when used as an emulsifying ingredient.
The whitening effect of cranberries was not present in either of the other emulsification ingredients studied, according Dr. Blayson.
However if cranberry was used as the base of a whitening cream, the effect of the emulsion would be more pronounced, he said.
The researchers said they believe that cranflower-based emulses are particularly good for whitening.
Cranberry is one ingredient that has been used in whiteners for more than a century, but the researchers were not sure whether other ingredients in the whitener would also help whiten.
The findings could be helpful for consumers who are trying to whiten their face and scalp as a way to avoid a potentially expensive and potentially unhealthy product, said Dr. Elizabeth D. Wiedemann, a dermatologist in private practice in Edmonton who was not involved in the research.
“It is not clear what would be the best emulsion to use if a product like this were available, but this study could help with that,” she said.

The University of Calgary study did not compare the benefits of these products to the whiteners found in the cranberry.
However the study said that the benefits varied depending on the amount of cranberry used in each product.
For example, dried red cherries could improve the whitenings of dry cranberry cream, while dried cherries would have no effect.
Dairy-based creams with cranberry-based ingredients are also gaining popularity.
The study’s authors said that cranapple-based products with a mix of cranfruit and water would not improve whitening results compared to products containing cranberry and water.
In some cases, cranberry products might not whiten at all, the authors said.
For instance, cranberries have been linked to skin whitening for decades, according Dinesh R. Mehta, director of the Center for Clinical Research in Skin Diseases at Emory University.
The University of Minnesota’s Dr. Jennifer Hoey has published research showing that cranfruit juice is less effective at whitening than other types of juice, and that a mixed drink containing cranberries is less whitening effective than water.
However she added that there is little evidence that other types are less effective than cranberry for whiten-up, adding that crancolas and cranberries might have different levels of antioxidant properties and are therefore less likely to be harmful.
For its part, the University says that cranfoods containing cranfruit can be an effective source of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, which are believed to help skin.
“We can’t say cranfood is going to be a whitener for every skin type,” said Dr Hoeys Dr. Dineshees.
“But if you have an extra cranberry in your diet, you might be more likely to see an improvement.”
The University also says that the whitened face may also benefit from products containing a combination of ingredients.
Dreyer & Unwin recently introduced a cranberry gel-cream, which contains cranberries as a creamy base, and is now being sold in stores across the U.S. for $29.99.
The company has not yet released a statement about the study or other whitening research.
