Red Raspberry Seed (28 – 50 SPF) – a study that was published in 2000. It is said that Red Raspberry seed oil showing absorbance of both UV-B and UV-C makes it an excellent potential broad spectrum UV protectant.
The SPF factor of Red Raspberry Oil is reported to be about the same as titanium dioxide which has a UVB protection rate of between 28 and 50.
