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.

Hi Jenny,
I just had to write to you a give you a HUGE kudos!!!!!!!!!!

Not only did I place my order on Monday .. I didn't pay for it until Monday afternoon. I received it this morning ... Wednesday morning. For the record, I am 1791 miles away from you (yes, I looked it up). Truly unbelievable .. especially this time of year with the holiday rush!

You have always been .. and continue to be .. so helpful with your ingredients and products. You ship *SO* quickly! I just adore you .. your products ... your service. You have gained a customer for life!!!

I just hope that someday .. somewhere .. I can give back to you in some way. Maybe it'll be referrals? I'll be shouting from the rooftops how great you are!!

I recently placed an order and part of my order went to the wrong place. I received several personal phone calls along the way from Jen, the mistake was explained, another shipment was sent out right away, and received it within a matter of days. I love the shipping cost adjustments that are normally made with my orders. I love the quality of the products, the packaging, and the new website. Thank you, Jen.

Words cannot begin to express how impressed I am with this company! I have ordered from LC a number of times and the service has always been exceptional. Orders are processed quickly and the shipping is fast....just can't get any better than this!

When running a small business cost is a very big deal. So far no one can match Lotioncrafter's prices, the 2nd most important thing is speed of shipping, I still can get over just how fast I get my orders. They have a life time customer here in Chicago..
