Raspberry seed oil is very beneficial for the skin! These little beauties pack a punch with a variety of healing properties.
Raspberry oil is a great, gentle oil for your face because it is noncomedogenic which means it won’t clog your pores. It is also rich in linoleic acid which helps to rebalance the skin’s natural oils and reduces acne breakouts. It also has high level of phytosterosis which reduces the transepidermal water loss, helping the skin to retain hydration and moisture.
Due to raspberry oil being a great source of vitamin A and E, it promotes the regeneration of new skin cells fighting age spots and protecting against premature again. The vitamin A and E also boosts collagen in the skin and elastin in the skin. This helps keep the skin looking youthful by reducing skin lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A is amazing because it encourages healthy skin cell regeneration and cell growth which results in smoother, tighter skin.
Raspberry is loaded with antioxidants. This helps with fighting and preventing the damage caused from free radicals. The high antioxidant amount helps to fight oxidative stress and reduce inflammation on your skin. The antioxidants also offers SPF qualities and helps protect against sun damage and photoaging. Raspberry seed oil has been found to have an SPF rating of up to 50 SPF!
