Rubus Idaeus (Red Raspberry Seed Oil)
Red Raspberry seed oil is a luxurious, sweet and attractive sounding oil, which connotes images of luscious fresh red raspberries on a summer day. The botanical or INCI name is Rubus idaeus, and the oil offers moisturizing, occlusive, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits for skin. Furthermore, raspberry seed oil offers anti-aging benefits of improving skin elasticity, suppleness and flexibility, while softening and smoothing the look of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin.
Often used in cosmetic products for its hydrating, antioxidant and lipid-barrier-forming characteristics, red 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. Red 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.
Composition and nutrition
We cold-press this oil from certified organic red raspberry seeds, which are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals and are non-GMO. It is a rich source of essential fatty acids, 33% omega-3 and 52% omega-6, providing excellent nourishment for the skin. The high content of vitamin E and polyphenols found in red raspberry seed oil provides outstanding anti-aging functionality. Red raspberry seed oil’s antioxidants eliminate skin damaging free radicals that are caused by sunlight and other environmental stresses. Red raspberry seed oil is unique among carrier oils in that it forms a nano-lipid layer on the skin, which seals in moisture and disperses and reflects UV radiation. Raspberry seed oil boosts the effectiveness of sunscreens and is especially effective at repairing damage caused by UV radiation that penetrates deeply into the skin.
