Red Raspberry Oil – The Natural Answer To Sun Protection

Red Raspberry Oil – The Natural Answer To Sun Protection

Until now, you have imagined red raspberries as a potential source of fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, i.e. a part of your healthy breakfast regime. But times have changed and so has the way we look at everything that surrounds us. Hence, with Alyuva’s Natural Sunscreen Lotion, we are here to change the way you look at red raspberries. 

Raspberry – the natural SPF

Did you know that red raspberry seed oil can naturally protect the skin from UV damage? Probably not. According to a 2000 study, raspberry seed oil offers UVA + UVB protection similar to titanium dioxide with a 28-50 SPF protection factor against UVB rays and 8 SPF against UVA rays. Raspberries are an all-natural, single-ingredient sunscreen. The use of raspberry seed oil in Alyuva Natural Sunscreen Lotion helps block UV rays. The oil acts as a high antioxidant booster for fighting free radicals. It combats sun damage and photoaging, boosts collagen and elastin for firmer skin. Additionally, raspberry seed oil helps fight acne and helps heal other acute skin ailments. The use of other natural SPF oils helps raspberry oil-infused Alyuva Natural Sunscreen Lotion in fighting age spots, wrinkles and premature ageing of your skin.

Is raspberry effective in protecting against sun damage?

Like you, even we weren’t really sure if raspberry can act as a natural skin protector against the sun. But, multiple research has been conducted over the years that confirm red raspberry seed oil’s ability to absorb UV rays. The oil produced from red raspberries can protect the skin from UVB and UVC rays by absorbing them. But, raspberry oil offers limited protection from UVA rays which are one of the biggest causes of skin cancer.  

What to keep in mind when choosing a natural sunscreen?


While it’s no more a doubt that raspberry oil is a great natural sunscreen solution, alone it isn’t very effective. So, while choosing a natural sunscreen, look for the presence of ingredients that complement the effect of raspberry oil and improve its effectiveness. If you need help, take a look at some natural ingredients that offer SPF. 

  • Zinc Oxide: Zinc Oxide has an SPF of 30+ which is ideal for a good sunscreen. It is one of the primary ingredients of Alyuva Natural Sunscreen Lotion which uses non-nano uncoated best quality Zinc Oxide (Non-nano Zinc Oxide does not get into your bloodstream but remains on the surface of the skin) to make the lotion broad spectrum. It protects you against both UVB and UVB rays.
  • Marigold Extract (Calendula Extract): Aloe Vera gel is a natural astringent and absorbs excess oil, sebum and dirt from the skin pores. Aloe Vera gel has Hydrating properties and helps in retaining moisture under the skin and moisturizes the skin and rejuvenates it without making it oily. The cooling and anti-inflammatory properties soothe the skin and cure pimples associated with oily skin.
  • Carrot Seed Extract (Daucus Carota): Carrot seed extract is a natural moisturizer and antioxidant. It has an SPF of 35- 40 and has the ability to kill certain bacteria and fungi.

Alyuva Natural Sunscreen Lotion is infused with raspberry seed oil along with the above-listed complementing ingredients to ensure complete sun protection for your skin. The presence of PUFA free oils like Shata Dhuata Ghrita(100 times clarified butter), Coconut Oil, and Avocado Oil further make Alyuva Natural Sunscreen Lotion a natural solution for skin protection against the sun.
