Raspberry seed oil is an exceptional oil with some outstanding properties. It is packed with vitamins E and A and omega fatty acids and has a reputation for protecting the skin from the sun. Raspberry is particularly good for distressed and upset skin, especially where there is dryness, damage or scaling. This oil is perfect for skin repair, protection and conditioning. We like to use raspberry oil for problematic skin, it helps to bring calm to the skin, from breakouts to dry skin patches. It also comes recommended as an anti-wrinkle remedy.
A very rich and potent oil, raspberry may be used by itself or it can be mixed with another oil such as rosehip seed oil to add extra potency. Try a few drops of raspberry seed oil as a night time moisturiser, or add some to your own moisturiser.
Raspberry seed oil and sun care: We must stress that oils and natural ingredients do not come with any guaranteed SPF – but studies reveal that some oils do possess their own natural SPF. Raspberry seed oil is one of nature’s finest examples – reputed to offer a mighty SPF of 20-50. There is no guarantee that raspberry oil will offer you such a high level of sun protection. The guidelines have not been determined scientifically – one of the many reasons that an SPF can’t be granted to a natural ingredient of this nature.
