Our cold-pressed Raspberry Seed Oil is a valuable ingredient for skincare products. It contains exceptionally high levels of Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids (approx 83%), phytosterols as well as Vitamin A and Vitamin E.
Essential fatty acids are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes. They help to produce the skin's natural oil barrier, to keep the skin hydrated, firmer, and younger looking.
Phytosterols help reduce moisture loss and repair environmental damage.
Vitamin A helps to heal damaged skin, promote cellular growth and reduce the signs of ageing and Vitamin E is also an important anti-ageing nutrient that helps to repair and condition the skin. Both are superb antioxidants that can reduce the damaging effects of free radicals, which are one of the major causes of premature ageing.
In a study conducted in 2000, and published by Elsevier Science Ltd, Raspberry Seed Oil was shown to have SPF (Sun protection factor) of between 28 and 50 for UVB rays and 8 for UVA rays! This is principally due to the polyphenols, potent antioxidants which are also found in olives, green tea and red wine. For this reason the oil is often added to natural sun protection creams and is a great oil to wear underneath your normal sunscreen to prevent UV damage and stimulate skin cell repair. Please note that until further studies are carried out, we would not advocate using this oil in place of sunscreen.
Raspberry Seed Oil is a very dry, thin oil that is deeply nourishing and conditioning for the skin. It is particularly suited to mature, dry or sensitive skin types and its powerful anti-inflammatory properties can also be helpful for inflamed skin conditions such as rashes, acne, eczema and psoriasis. The anti-inflammatory properties of Raspberry Seed Oil are thought to be superior to oils such as Avocado, Grapeseed, Hazelnut and Wheatgerm.
Note: Raspberry Seed Oil has a long shelf life due to its high phospholipid content and may increase the stability of other carrier oils when blended.
