This wonderful raspberry oil is made from Chilean raspberry seeds (Rubus idaeus), grown high in the Andes, which are exported, then processed in Germany by the supercritical CO2 total extraction method.
Red Raspberry seed oil is rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids and alpha and gamma tocopherols. The impressive stability and nutrient profile contributes to an ever increasing demand for this oil as a nourishing and effective emollient lipid currently seeing much use within beauty, cosmetic and personal care applications.
Quoted from 'Power of the Seed'...''Red Raspberry Seed is a specialty oil, exceptionally high in vitamins E and pro-vitamin A, the oil has been identified as having great potential for sun protection. The plant compounds in raspberry seed oil are being studied for use as a broad spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen.''
Also known as a super-effective antioxidant, Red Raspberry CO2 extracted oil contains over 80% essential fatty acids and is widely known beneficial with eczema, various rashes and other skin lesions as well as gingivitis, and is most often used in soaps, skin creams, toothpaste and bath oils. Due to a high phospholipid content this oil has a respectable shelf life of at least two years and is especially well suited for making products intended to soothe, support, nourish and moisturize damaged, mature and problem skin types either on it's own or blended with other oils.
