Let’s talk about Red Raspberry Seed oil (Rubus idaeus). It contains a high level of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) which research shows to be a strong antioxidant for the skin. Recent skin cancer research indicates that American’s have a wildly imbalanced fatty acid ratio in their diet, and this imbalance creates a photo-toxic environment on the skin. Which means that when you go out in the sun the rate of cell damage increases. It is also very important to eat foods and take supplements rich in omega 3’s. Red Raspberry Seed oil has also been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties. That said, the above statement has not been approved by the FDA.
