Raspberry Seed Oil
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 Wind 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.
Organic Raspberry Seed Oil is considerably more expensive that Ethically Sourced Raspberry Seed Oil, especially since the new import taxes have been applied after Brexit. However, if you can stretch your budget to be able to buy Organic Raspberry Seed Oil, then this would be preferable.
Not only is it really important to support organic producers, it is also largely true that organic products are more nutrient dense than the conventional alternatives. This means that you need less of your Organic Raspberry Seed Oil to reap the same benefits.
Raspberry Seed Oil SPF
Raspberry Seed Oil SPF may have an SPF of anywhere between 28 SPF and 50 SPF, 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.
Wild As The Wind Raspberry Seed Oil is cold pressed.
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.
