Raspberry Seed Oil 100 mL
Highly moisturizing and emollient Red Raspberry (aka Rubus idaeus) seed oil is bright gold to reddish in colour with characteristic fruity aroma. It contains high amounts of alpha and gamma tocopherols (Vitamin E), polyphenols and Vitamin C. It is also rich in Vitamin A and contains up to 83% omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Red raspberry seed oil has more pronounced anti-inflammatory properties than avocado, grapeseed, hazelnut and wheatgerm oils and may prove to be the most effective oil to use in the treatment of eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions. Due to a high level of Vitamin A it can also be beneficial in on oily and acneic skin types. Its strong antioxidant, nourishing and healing properties along with a stable shelf life make it an attractive ingredient for many types of skincare products.
The raspberry is the edible fruit of a multitude of plant species in the genus Rubus of the rose family, most of which are in the subgenus Idaeobatus; the name also applies to these plants themselves. Raspberries are perennial with woody stems. Raspberry seed oil is one of those luxurious, sweet and attractive sounding oils which connotes images of luscious fresh raspberries on a summer day. Often used in cosmetic products for its hydrating, antioxidant and lipid-barrier forming characteristics, raspberry seed oil makes a lovely addition to facial formulations such as serums, face oils, lotions and creams for dry, dehydrated, sensitive and mature or aging skin types. Raspberry seed oil also serves as a luxurious addition to lip balms and lip products, as it forms an occlusive barrier to prevent moisture loss and protect skin from damaging elements.
Red raspberry seed oil contains 83% essential fatty acids (EFAs). A 2000 study found that the UVA and UVB protection afforded by raspberry seed oil is reportedly similar to titanium dioxide with an SPF protection factor against UVB rays of 28-50, and an SPF protection factor against UVA rays of around 8.
Red Raspberry Seed Oil contains one of the highest anti-oxidant, and phytosterols contents, of any of the vegetable / fruit oils, making it an excellent addition to your natural sun protection products where it will help to prevent photo damage. Anti-oxidants that are consumed can reach the skin but, with free radical damage, being the heaviest assault on the skin, and the cause of almost all of the signs of aging, and unhealthy skin, it is beneficial to apply them topically where their protection can go to work immediately.
Contrary to popular belief, the winter months shouldn’t be an excuse to shed your regular sunscreen. If the idea of slathering on a thick white cream sounds pointless if you’re just going to cover everything up, there are lighter alternatives, like raspberry seed oil, that are still packed with SPF. Just because it’s cloudy doesn’t mean your skin isn’t being subject to harmful UV rays — in reality, those sun rays that are damaging to our timeless complexion are present for 365 days a year. I’ll be honest with you, as soon as November rears its ugly, rainy head, I’m soaking up all the vitamin D I can since it’s essential to my mental health and my skincare. Sunscreen is actually one of the most underrated wrinkle prevention agents we have, which means you definitely want an essential oil that’s going to keep you protected all year round without clogging up your pores or making you more oily then nature intended you to be.
