Raspberry Carrier Oils carry a powerful punch.

June 20, 2018

Raspberry Carrier Oils carry a powerful punch.

We’re experimenting with new products all the time and as we make new skin care products for our face, we are interested in the properties of raspberry seed oil as a carrier oil.

Used often in cosmetic preparations, raspberry seed oil is known for its ability to carry nutrients to our skin, leaving it hydrated, soft and smooth to the touch. It naturally contains a high amount of essential fatty acids and is an excellent antioxidant.

It offers as an anti-aging effect, offering the skin suppleness and improves skin elasticity. Wrinkles and fine lines get smoothed, and it is known to improve sagging skin. It contains high levels of Vitamin A and E, and is often used in cosmetic, creams and lip balms because of its natural sun screen abilities.

Obtained from the seeds of raspberries, the oil is cold-pressed and presents naturally as a yellow oil with a green tint with a distinct earthy/cucumber scent which some may find unpleasant. We are currently already using this oil in our two facial oils, as well as our Orange Burst Lipbalm. Stay tuned for more! 

Yours in passion, vision, and creation,

Isabelle

There is a serious epidemic in our world today and it is caused by the amount of plastic we create and consume, and hence, how much we throw away. Our shorelines are lined with garbage, there are islands of floating plastic lost at sea, and statistically speaking, we are creating ten times more trash a day than we did a century ago. Of course, there are more people on earth right now than a century ago so more trash is inevitable, but it is this fact alone that has spurred us as a brand to be as minimal as possible with our output.
