Who knew that the byproduct of raspberry juice – the oil extracted from the tiny seeds, could be such a beneficial ingredient in skincare?
This highly potent oil can boost skin in a number of ways – it's anti-inflammatory so it can help issues such as rashes and itchy inflamed skin, has a high antioxidant content, which may help rejuvenate damaged skin, improve elasticity, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, as well as being highly effective at moisturising the skin! Studies have found that this power-packed oil is said to be more effective than other well-known oils such as virgin avocado oil, grape-seed oil, hazelnut oil, and wheat germ oil.
Some studies have found red raspberry seed oil to show some absorption of UV-B and UV-C ranges with potential for use as a broad spectrum UV protectant – so in SPF it can provide added benefits.
Here are some ways you can treat your skin to this lesser known but superior oil:
