Organic Raspberry Seed Oil possesses an exceptionally high proportion of alpha and gamma tocopherols (Vitamin E), vitamin A and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. In a study done on the properties of Organic Raspberry Seed Oil, the oil showed absorbance in the UV-B and UV-C ranges suggesting that it may be useful as a broad spectrum UV protectant in skin care formulations (Oomah et al, 2000). Red raspberry seed oil is rich in alpha linolenic acid suggesting pronounced anti-inflammatory properties, thus it may be an effective oil to use in the treatment of eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.
Organic Red Raspberry Seed Oil may be used in lip balm, cream, sun protection, balms and other skin care formulations. Organic Raspberry Seed Oil can be added to any formulation to add protection against the sun. Please note, however, that you will not be able to determine the exact SPF of your product without testing and you cannot market SPF products without a license to do so. The usage of Organic Raspberry Seed Oil on the skin is not the equivalent of using a properly formulated SPF product. Many factors are involved in how a product works as a sunscreen including absorption rate and viscosity of the formulation.

Something I: Purchased for Myself
I had high hopes for this product to use it as a sunscreen since all store ones hurt my face in many ways.
It left a residue which took very long to go away, but the worst thing was that it is really pore clogging. It made me really sad because it did not irritate my face and protected it from the sun but it clogged my pores so bad.
FNWL Response: Elvia, Red Raspberry Seed Oil is said to offer protection against the sun, possibly as high as 45-50 SPF) and is used by artisans/manufacturers that are able to perform protect SPF testing on their final product. having said that, it is important for us to make it clear that strive to avoid recommending using Red Raspberry Seed Oil solo for complete sun protection. I work to keep my adult acne manageable and haven't personally found Red Raspberry Seed Oil to be pore clogging (comedogenic), but everyone is different. We appreciate your sharing your personal experiences with us.
