5 Things You Need To Know About Raspberry Seed Oil
Raspberry Seed Oil is a sustainable and highly efficacious plant oil with nourishing and hydrating properties, and many skincare benefits to care for your skin. It's why it's the hero plant active in our Raspberry Seed Cleansing Oil. Here's why we love this fruit oil and why your skin will love it too.
1. Protects against skin damage
The high levels of omega fatty acids naturally occurring in red raspberry seed oil support healthy skin function and appearance. Rich in both omega-3 and omega-6, raspberries are an excellent free radical scavenger, helping to protect the skin from daily environmental stress and prevent skin damage.
2. Naturally hydrating
The omega-3 fatty acids in raspberry seed oil help the skin to retain moisture, regulate oil production, and maintain elasticity. Together with omega-6, these fatty acids also keep the skin feeling soft and smooth.
3. Strengthens the skin
The high levels of omega-6 support the skin's structural integrity and protective barrier. Plus, the levels of omega-6 fatty acids in raspberry seed oil are higher compared with other fruit oils, such as blueberry seed oil, cranberry seed oil, kiwi seed oil and strawberry seed oil.
4. High in Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a key part of the skin’s natural antioxidant defences, providing protection against free radicals. Tocopherols are the most abundant form of vitamin E in the body and the upcycled raspberry seed oil we use contains up to 250mg/100g tocopherol content, nearly 20% more Vitamin E than ordinary raspberry seed oils.
5. Sustainably sourced
The raspberry seed oil in our Raspberry Seed Cleansing Oil is made from upcycled raspberry seeds, a by-product from the juicing industry and diverted from food waste. The oil is extracted from the seeds of the leftover pulp which is set aside and stored. It is then upcycled into our luxurious, sustainable active oil. The oil is extracted using a cold, low energy, solvent-free process, which allows the natural potency of the fruits seeds to be maintained and ensures the highest quality oil is produced.
