INCI: Rubus occidentalis seed oil

What is Rubus occidentalis seed oil?

Rubus occidentalis, commonly called black raspberry or black caps, is a deciduous shrub that produces fruits known as black raspberries. The plant is native to Western America, Asia, and Europe and is related to the red raspberry plant. The oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant by cold pressing, and the fruits are purple-black and rich in compounds like anthocyanins. The plant is used in culinary, textile dyes, and cosmetic products.

Use & Benefits:

Emollient: Rubus occidentalis seed oil functions as an emollient in a variety of cosmetic products. It fills the gaps between dead cells in the skin, making it appear soft and smoother.

Barrier Protection: Rubus occidentalis seed oil forms a thin film on the skin's surface, creating a barrier that protects the skin from allergens, bacteria, and irritants that can otherwise lead to conditions such as acne, eczema, dryness, and itchiness.

Moisturizing: Rubus occidentalis seed oil retains moisture in the skin, making it appear healthier.

Antioxidant: Free radicals are present in our bodies and can be found in high amounts in environmental pollutants and chemicals. These free radicals damage skin proteins like collagen and elastin, disrupting the skin's meshwork and creating defects in the skin cell arrangement. This process is also known as premature aging of the skin, which can cause the skin to appear dull with fine lines and wrinkles. Rubus occidentalis seed oil functions as an antioxidant, replacing these free radicals, making them ineffective in causing further damage. This way, antioxidants not only stop ongoing damage but also heal already damaged skin cells, resulting in tighter, shinier, and more youthful-looking skin.
Rubus occidentalis seed oil is used in the formulation of creams, lotions, gels, sun care, and bath products.
