Cold pressed Raspberry Seed Oil is incredibly healing for the skin. It is also the best carrier oil to use as a high protection sun bathing oil.

It is an incredibly antioxidant oil packed with Vitamin E, making it a superb free radical scavenger which is used by many to reduce skin irritation and rashes, including Eczema and Psoriasis.

Like Sweet Almond Oil it is also an excellent anti-inflammatory.

Raspberry Seed Oil is the key ingredient in the Wild As The ind Sun Tanning Oil recipe, which you can make for yourself. Or you can simply use Raspberry Seed Oil on it’s own.

Raspberry Seed Oil For Collagen Production

Collagen is the connective tissue which keeps our skin look healthy, young and youthful. It is the reduction in collagen which 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 not only stimulate collagen production and protect collagen integrity, they also stimulate cell repair and reduce the appearance of damaged skin.

Raspberry Seed Oil SPF

Raspberry Seed Oil SPF has an SPF of anywhere between 28SPF and 50SPF, depending on where it was produced as well as the method of extracting the oil from the seed.

Cold pressing the seeds to extract the oil is the best way of retaining the nutrients and healing power of the Raspberry Seed Oil, as well as retaining the optimal SPF value of the oil.

Raspberry Seed Oil doesn’t have an official SPF rating. This is partly because it isn’t possible to patent single natural ingredients, and therefore there is no commercial imperative to allocate an SPF value. But, because the SPF value can vary so dramatically amongst fruit grown in different regions, with different nutrient values in the soil, and with differing weather conditions, there is no way of determining a single consistent SPF value for this fabulous oil.

***According to Oils of Nature by Anthony J. O’Lenick Red Raspberry Seed Oil has a natural SPF between 28 and 50

A study performed in 2000 confirms this.


Raspberry Seed Oil For Reducing The Signs Of Ageing

Raspberry Seed Oil is an effective moisturiser which can improve skin elasticity, which is the secret to youthful looking skin. Elasticity reduces wrinkles, but the many nutrients in this oil also reduce dryness and even help to regenerate skin cells.

This is another secret to younger looking skin. A high skin cell turnover keeps the skin looking younger… because it actually is more youthful if you think about it… The way to achieve a high skin cell turnover is by exfoliating, which means skin cells are sloughed off sooner rather than later, preventing skin cells on exfoliated faces to reach the age of the skin cells on face which aren’t regularly exfoliated.

Wild As The Wind advocates using a natural muslin cloth to gently exfoliate delicate facial skin.

Best Healthcare and Skincare Information Sources.

Wild As The Wind use a number of resources when deciding which essential oil formulas to put together for optimal healing and efficacy, as well as to support any health claims we may make.

We use the industry ‘bible’ on essential oil safety: Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals [2nd Edition] by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, to establish the safety of the Wild As The Wind formulations.

We owe a particular debt to GreenMedInfo, and, of course, the teachings of Penny Price and Patricia Davis.

Many of the scientific studies used to inform the claims made on this website are via GreenMedInfo, as well as via Dr. Josh Axe, Ty Bollinger on the Truth About Cancer website as well as, on the odd occasion, Dr. Eric Zielinski
