Raspberry Seed Oil
Red Raspberry Seed Oil contains 83% essential fatty acids, vitamin E and other anti-oxidants.
More incredible is that it is used for its ability to naturally protect the skin from harmful sun rays!
Essential Fatty Acids are necessary for proper skin function and help to soothe and repair skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Vitamin E is an important anti-oxidant that helps prevent free radical damage. Free radicals are what cause the skin to develop fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and even age spots.
What is even more incredible is that Red Raspberry has incredible sun protection properties that were found (in a study done in 2000) to be similar to titanium dioxide.
When used pure on the skin, Red Raspberry Seed Oil has been shown to have a SPF of 28-50 for UVB, and an SPF of approximately 8 for UVA. Pretty incredible for a tiny little seed!
Note: You will find Red Raspberry Seed Oil in our Natural Sun Block for its skin loving properties as well as to enhance the SPF!

INGREDIENTS: Cold Pressed Rubus idaeus (raspberry) seed oil
Facial Care: After cleansing your skin with an all-natural cleanser, apply a small amount into your palm to warm. Apply in a circular motion to your face and neck. Apply sparingly around eye area. In the winter months, or in dryer climates, you may need a little more but remember to use sparingly. This oil is gentle and safe to use around your eyes. Use as a day or night moisturizer.
Body Moisturizer: Apply to dry or slightly damp skin as needed.
Bath Oil: Add 1 tsp oil to bath water and enjoy! Be careful when getting out of the bath as it can make the bathtub slippery.
Carrier Oil: Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils and “carry” them to your skin because pure essential oils are potent and can cause irritation when applied directly to your skin. The amount of essential oil you use depends on the type of essential oil you are using and the purpose of application.
DIY Skin care recipes: Try using in soaps, body scrubs, salves, lip balms, lotions, creams and more
Massage Oil: Use as a body massage oil - apply as needed.
Example Aromatherapy Massage Recipe: For aromatherapy massage add 6 drops of lavender essential oil to 30ml of carrier oil.
Refrigerate or keep in cool/dark area to lengthen its shelf life. It can be combined with vitamin E oil to help extend the shelf life.
