Dr. Nick Notes
Raspberry Seed (CO2) Extract is the exotic carrier oil which has provided me the most experience outside of Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT). This extract is very light and penetrates into the skin quickly (~2-5 minutes after applying) feeling very nourishing. For blending homemade cosmetic products, this is a phenomenal ingredient to enhance vitality of the skin! A great use of Raspberry Seed extract is a face moisturizer combining about 90% Raspberry Seed extract with about 10% Seabuckthorn Pulp extract before bed.
In summary, CO2 Extracted Raspberry Seed Oil as a high quality carrier oil, is deeply therapeutic for the skin with its high Vitamin E & Vitamin A content. Very ESSENTIAL to anyone’s beauty regiment for premium skin care / natural cosmetics.
