Raspberry Seed Oil

Wild As The Wind Cold Pressed Raspberry Seed Oil is an exceptional product. Cold Pressed Raspberry Seed Oil is incredibly healing for the skin. It is an antioxidant and nutrient powerhouse with the potential to heal and support healthy, youthful looking skin.

Using Raspberry Seed Oil As A Sun Screen?

Whilst it isn’t possible to make any scientific claims about the SPF values of carrier oils, there is a long tradition of people using Raspberry Seed Oil to protect their skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

Many believe Cold Pressed Raspberry Seed Oil is the best carrier oil to use as a sun bathing oil, especially for fair skinned people. Others swear by Rosehip Seed Oil as an after sun balm, especially when blended with the essential oils known to be good for healing burns like Lavender Essential Oil and German Chamomile Essential Oil. (Wild As The Wind sell several versions of each of these essential oils. To view them all, please use the search box at the top of the page using “Lavender” or “Chamomile” as your search words, and view all of the results.)

According to folklore Cold Pressed Raspberry Seed Oil has an SPF of anywhere between 28 SPF and 50 SPF. Variations are likely to occur due to climate and soil fertility differences in the regions where the raspberries are grown. The more sun the better! France, Spain and Russia are big producers of Raspberries.

Raspberry Seed Oil can be blended with other oils to further vary the sun protection factor. When blended with Pomegranate Seed Oil, which is reputed to have an unofficial SPF value of 8, and a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil, it makes for a very heavenly sun bathing oil.

It can also be added to Organic Wheatgerm Oil which is thought to have an SPF of 20.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil is considered to have an SPF of 6.

The fairer your skin the more Raspberry Seed Oil you’ll want in your mix.

Raspberry Seed Oil Is An Antioxidant Powerhouse

Raspberry Seed Oil is an incredibly antioxidant oil containing a great amount of Vitamin E, making it an exceptional free radical scavenger. This is why it has been used traditionally to reduce skin irritation and rashes, including Eczema and Psoriasis.

Like Organic Sweet Almond Oil it is also thought to be an excellent anti-inflammatory oil.

Raspberry Seed Oil For Collagen Production

Collagen is the connective tissue which keeps our skin looking young and healthy. The reduction of collagen due to poor diet and ageing is what  gives rise to wrinkles.

There are several antioxidants in Raspberry Seed Oil which promote Collagen:

  • Tocopherols (Vitamin E)
  • Carotenoids (Vitamin A)
  • Ellagic acid helps reduce the degeneration of collagen.

These antioxidants stimulate collagen production whilst also protecting collagen integrity. These multi-tasking potently healing constituents in Raspberry Seed Oil also stimulate cell repair and reduce the appearance of damaged skin.

Raspberry Seed Oil For Ageing Skin

Raspberry Seed Oil effectively moisturises mature skin thereby potentially improving skin elasticity, which is the secret to youthful looking skin. Improved elasticity reduces wrinkles. Plus, all of the nutrients in this nutrient packed oil also reduce the appearance of dry skin and can even help to regenerate skin cells.

Substitute Oils

Useful alternatives to Raspberry Seed Oil include Organic Borage Oil, Blackcurrant Seed Oil, and Evening Primrose Oil.

Cold Pressed Raspberry Seed Oil

Cold pressing of the seeds from the fruit of Raspberry plants is the best way of retaining the nutrients of the Raspberry Seed Oil, and therefore, the healing power of the oil.

  1. Hazel Halter-Hurn

    This is the best carrier oil I have ever used! With no oily residue! I suffer from psoriasis and have dry skin needing moisture and sun. I struggle with sun cream because my skin needs sun but can’t be burnt or it will flare up. I used this oil (mixed with lavender, copiaba and geranium essential oils) whilst on holiday in Croatian sun for 10 days… It’s a fantastic sunscreen and moisturizer! I never burnt once, and my psoriasis almost fully healed from being able to enjoy the sun without being flooded with coating cream. Thank you so much for making such a fantastic product that is doing so much good and smells so great!

      Oh Hazel, I’m so pleased! And, I’m so grateful you have shared your experience. I’m approached by so many people in your position… They’ve tried everything, and nothing really helps. It’s so good you know about getting into the sun… this is the key thing to do… we need that Vitamin D!!! The reason it’s so important is because Vitamin D is vitally important for our immune system, and Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition. This means that your immune system is really working overtime, and needs all the help it can get!Vitamin D helps to regulate the immune response, and gives you a good old immune boost… so, a good 10 days is strong sun, like you had in Croatia, takes a good amount of the burden off your immune system. By the way… Vitamin D is actually a hormone… I explain all about it and some other vitally important vitamins for immune function and hormonal health in this article: https://www.wilddigital.co.uk/eating-for-hormone-balance/
      And, here’s an article about digestive health, because 80% of our immune system is in our gut, and so we really need to look after our digestion if we want to stay well: https://www.wilddigital.co.uk/gut-health/
      And finally, I’m sure you know the connection between Psoriasis and stress… this article explains all of the major stressors and gives us the info we need to reverse engineer the stressors which are affecting us personally, so we can start eliminating them. (Stress totally undermines our immune system!) https://www.wilddigital.co.uk/stress-is-the-cause-of-all-illness-dysfunction/
