PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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.
 
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.
 
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.
Some studies show it could have a natural sun protection factor perhaps as high as between 28 and 50.
 
It also 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.

I recommend this product
Great product only found at Aromantic!

It was the ingredient missing to prepare my very own chemical free sunscreen. I am based in Sardinia and, boy, the sun is hitting hard already. The red raspberry seed oil has naturally 30-50 SPF and it's essential for skincare. It comes in a cute amber bottle to protect the oil and it's of a good quality. Will always buy from Aromantic.
