Using Organic Raspberry Seed Oil For Sun Protection
There is a long tradition of people using Organic Raspberry Seed Oil for sun and environmental protection. And, if the feedback for this oil is anything to go by, it’s a tradition that’s being honoured to this day.
We are growing increasingly aware that conventional sun creams are adversely affecting our health.
We need sunlight to regulate and support our health at a systemic level, so blocking these life giving benefits is deeply detrimental. And, with claims that conventional sun creams are the leading cause of skin cancer, many are looking for natural alternatives.

Organic Raspberry Seed Oil Sun Protection Science
According to scientific research, Raspberry Seed Oil is…
… gaining increasing attention by cosmetics industry. It is used as an ingredient in body and face moisturizers because of its high concentrations of Vitamins A and E. These vitamins are essential for the maintenance and repair of skin cells. The oil works by creating a lipid barrier that stops skin from losing natural moisture. Retaining moisture helps to keep skin cells looking young and full. Raspberry oil can be used as a base for makeup applications. It adds hydration, sun protection and nourishing vitamins. The primary factors that contribute to premature aging of the skin include UV from the sun, illness, smoking and drinking. Raspberry seed oil is packed with carotenoids—a plant derived source of Vitamins A and E. These compounds are widely used in many anti-aging skin care products to help promote youthful skin. Vitamin A is a popular antioxidant and ingredient in anti-aging skincare products because it adds moisture, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and smooths skin texture. Vitamin E is another highly praised antioxidant in the anti-aging industry. It helps to protect cells from oxidative damage and assists with maintaining collagen structure. Research has demonstrated that people with higher levels of antioxidants have fewer and less pronounced wrinkles than those with low levels. This oil is of particular interest to medical experts because it naturally contains sun protective compounds in addition to its beneficial antioxidants
What You Need To Know About Oils For Sun Protection
Sunburn is essentially a process of oxidation within our skin. Oxygen and sunlight are oxidative. So when we are exposed to fresh air and strong sunlight, this promotes oxidative processes within our skin.
Natural Ways Of Avoiding Sunburn
However, this is especially true dependent on other factors… Environmental pollutants and high amounts of certain fats within our diet are highly oxidative. So, personal exposure to oxidative stress will determine your personal tollerance to the oxidative processes of the air and sun.
If you burn easily in the sun, this may indicate that your diet is too rich in omega-6 fatty acids, aka linoleic acid or LA.
The modern Western diet is rich in vegetable and seed oils, which contain a lot of linoleic acid. Conventionally reared chickens and pigs, which are grain and seed fed, are also high in linoleic acid.
To compound the issues of a diet high in linoleic acid, we are also often nutritionally deficient in antioxidants, which we make from fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly cruciferous veggies, like cabbage cauliflower and kale.

Please note :: The antioxidant properties of sun protective oils will help to protect us from sunburn, but the level of protection will vary from person to person. This means that our personal dietary and environmental exposure will determine the length of time we, as individuals, can spend in the sun.
For this reason you must pay attention to how your skin feels at all times, and if you feel that you might be burning, you will need to cover up, or go inside.
No antioxidant sun protective oil or conventional suncream can protect us indefinitely in the sun. All they can hope to do is extend the time we can safely stay in the sun.
To enhance the antioxidant potential of your oil it is strongly advised that you use Raspberry Seed Oil in conjunction with Sun Tanning Essential Oil Blend. This is made using deeply antioxidant essential oils.
Additional Oils For Sun Protection
Many people have now replaced conventional after sun lotions with the deeply nutritive Organic Rosehip Seed Oil.
Creams are predominantly made from water, whereas using an oil means that nutrient concentrations are far greater.
Organic Rosehip Seed Oil is an ideal choice as an after sun balm, especially when blended with the essential oils known to be good for healing burns, like Organic Lavender Essential Oil, and for scar reduction and wound healing, like Organic Geranium Essential Oil.
Both of these essential oils are in the Wild As The Wind Organic Sun Tanning Essential Oil Blend.
The full list of ingredients are:
- Organic Lavender Essential Oil
- Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil
- Organic Geranium Rose Essential Oil
- Organic Palmarosa Essential Oil

Gorgeous! Goes on beautifully and being so affordable I slap it on (don’t skimp!) ..I mix it with the sun tanning blend and keep a big bottle by the kettle to use before I go out for the day..protected from the elements and nourished in every way. I’m a gardener by profession and depend on quality and affordable products, created with integrity and love. Don’t ever stop Rachel! I feel like a goddess every day using your products! It’s wonderful to be able to use a natural oil that has sun protection qualities …. at last! I’m 54 and my facial skin is pretty damned good considering I’m out in the elements most of the time. My other secret is the wild crafted organic rose hip oil …. for night time …. Thanks Rachel. Awesome products and website. Xxx
