Red Raspberry Seed Oil
CAS: 381718-28-1

Our Red Raspberry Seed Oil is cold pressed virgin oil and contains a high 83% of Essential Fatty Acids or EFA's, the most abundant of which are linoleic, alpha linolenic, and oleic acids. The composition of these omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids has been shown to reduce the effects of oxidative stress in skin.

Red raspberry seed oil is an excellent free radical scavenger and antioxidant, and a rich source of alpha and gamma tocopherol as well as y-tocopherol, along with carotenoides (Vitamin A). With a reported use for the prevention of rash, eczema and other skin lesions, it also has superior anti-inflammatory properties as compared to other well-known oils such as virgin avocado oil, grapeseed oil, hazelnut oil, and wheat germ oil (Oomah, et al 2000).

Notably, the Oomah study also indicates red raspberry seed oil may have the potential to act as a broad-spectrum UV-A and UV-B shield when used at full strength. According to the Oomah study, with a protection factor equal to titanium dioxide and a potential SPF between 28 - 50 for UVB and 6.5 - 7.5 for UVA, it may prove valuable in sun screen formulations. This was merely a study indicating some sunscreen potential, but it should, by no means, be relied upon without further independent testing.  Red Raspberry Oil is a natural crop and, as such, its constituents can vary from batch to batch or harvest to harvest.  As with any cosmetic raw material, any sunscreen benefits would have to be proven or disproven through sunscreen testing of any sunscreen formulation. 

While red raspberry seed oil may be a valuable addition, claims for the SPF of products containing it should not be made without SPF testing of finished formulations through a certified lab as required by the FDA.  One should also carefully consider the risk of using untested sunscreen products one might create, as final SPF of a formulation cannot be known without testing it, and, barring that, you could do yourself or others more harm than good.

We do not endorse or recommend that Red Raspberry Seed Oil be combined with Coconut Oil and Carrot Seed Oil as a DIY sunscreen.  Without testing, it is impossible to know the SPF of such a combination and the use of untested sunscreen products can result in severe burns!

Red raspberry seed oil has a long shelf life due to its oxidative stability, making it an excellent oil for use in creams, lotions, lip balms, salves and other anhydrous formulations.

Our Red Raspberry Seed Oil is cold pressed and cold filtered through diatomaceous earth (DE). It is not refined, deodorized, decolorized or otherwise treated. 

This product, while considered a food grade oil, is repackaged for cosmetic use and is for external use only.  It is not sold or intended for consumption.

Our Customers Say...
Jen/Lotioncrafter continues to meet and exceed my expectations. I will be a customer for life! Not only do they provide consistently high quality and hard to find products they always deliver excellent service and ship quickly. They truly excel at what they do and I have never been disappointed.
cynthia, (esencia de san miguel)

Hi, I just wanted to express how happy I am with Lotioncrafter. I have ordered from them three times and this last time I mistakenly put through the wrong shipping address in my order. I called and spoke to Jen and she corrected it immediately. I was very pleased with her efficiency that I had to come in write my own testimonial, something I don't usually do.

The last 2 orders arrived in a timely fashion but this one has taken a little longer because of the memorial day weekend. I knew it was going to be shipped late because on the site, they let the customers know that shipping would be delayed as a result of the holiday. I was very happy with this as well - at least I knew about the possible delay ahead of time.

Thanks Jen for always providing stellar customer service.

How did I not know of your company?? I ordered in a panic on a Thursday because I had orders to fill for lotion & I was out of emulsifying wax & preservative. I was hoping for maybe a Monday delivery. The package was on my doorstep on Saturday...I live in Florida!! You rock! I just placed another order & you are now my "go to" website. Thank you for your excellent service.
