Most of us know the humble raspberry as a sweet treat that’s wonderful to work into our diet. Yet most wouldn’t have any idea about the long list of beauty benefits this berry packs in when pulped into an oil. So allow us to enlighten you…
Raspberry oil is bursting with vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant - wiping out nasty chemicals and reducing free radicals (both of which cause premature aging).
Seriously Impressive SPF Protection
We recently blogged about how the sun’s UV rays are among the four accelerators of aging. Thankfully help comes in the form of raspberry seed oil, which has an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of 28-50 for UVB Rays, and 6-7.5 for UVA Rays (which would explain the inclusion of raspberry oil as an ingredient in many sunscreen creams).
In turn, raspberry seed oil also fights the symptoms of sun damage – taking on sunspots and fine lines.
Got sensitive skin? Then you need raspberry seed oil in your beauty regime. Its anti-inflammatory qualities mean that it soothes and heals, and is suitable for everyone from those suffering from eczema to your bouncing baby.
Raspberry seed oil features super high levels of phytosterols, which are essential for minimizing water loss in the skin. This leaves the skin feeling healthy and moisturized, from the inside, and out. Phytosterols also help to repair skin cells that may have been damaged by the sun.
Booster of collagen and elastin
When our skin loses collagen, it can begin to look sallow and less firm. Raspberry seed oil can help boost both simultaneously(thanks to the ellagic acid).
Fighter of acne
The raspberry seed oil contains incredibly high levels of omega-3 & -6 fatty acids, which both have been demonstrated as effective fighters of acne.
Getting scientific, these acids decrease the insulin-like growth factor in your skin, and hyperkeratinization of your pores – reducing redness and inflammation in the process.
Raspberry seed oil is wonderful for your skin, and this has been known in the beauty realm for decades. This is exactly why you’ll discover this ingredient in our products.
