The common red raspberry is cultivated throughout the world, and a very large percentage is pressed into juice. Raspberry seeds, which constitute 10% of the weight of a raspberry, are a major by-product of the raspberry juicing process. Aromantic’s red raspberry seed oil is cold pressed in the UK from Canadian raspberry seeds. There are two ways you can press the oil out: one is by using the solvent hexane and the other is by cold pressing.
The shelf life for this oil would normally be 6-8 months, but as this oil is capped under Nitrogen gas for Aromantic after production and as we add 0.5% Vitamin E-Oil when we open the container you can then keep this oil for 1.5-2 years.
The oil is very dry and thin. The oil is used in the cosmetic industry due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Raspberry Seed Oil is excellent for sensitive skin and is deeply nourishing, softening, emollient, conditioning, and a lipid barrier providing protection and moisture retention for the skin. It may also be used in the sunscreen industry due to its UV absorbing properties. It contains a sun protection factor (SPF) of between 28 and 50 and contains extremely high levels of alpha and gamma tocopherols (vitamin E), vitamin A, approximately 30% of omega 3 and 54% of omega 6 fatty acids, so with approximately 84% content of essential fatty acids, it gives the skin a vital broad spectrum defence from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Red raspberry seed oil is an ideal choice to use as the main vegetable oil in your sun care products.
