Why add Rasberry Seed Oil to your skincare routine?
It's anti-inflammatory due to its high content of alpha-linolenic acid (the highest in any fruit seed oil) and phytosterols. It may be particularly helpful for eczema and psoriasis. The oil offers anti-aging advantages because of its content of ellagic acid (an antioxidant). The oil is very high in Vitamin E – a key and important antioxidant. Anti-oxidants are important to prevent environmental damage, which can lead to premature skin aging. Very high levels of phytosterols can help reduce water loss, which leads to dry and tired appearing skin. Phytosterols also help to repair skin damaged by environmental factors including sun damage.
