Unrefined, with no chemical treatments what-so-ever! This oil is raw, beautiful and amazing!
Blackberries hold naturally high levels of anthocyanins which is what give this berry its pigmented "blackberry color." It is said that these colors hold the ability to absorb UV-A and UV-B rays, thus providing a naturally derived sunscreen of sorts. Because of this, many find blackberry and red raspberry seed oil as an excellent complimentary ingredient to zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in the formulation of SPF-valued sunscreens. It also contains high levels of vitamin C, tocopherols and tocotrienols with help promote youthful and supple looking skin.
When purchasing this item, please realize that unrefined oils hold a natural scent and color that is typical to their species. This oil smells exactly like how your hands smells after picking blackberries, its not a fragrance oil scent, but rather a 100% natural blackberry scent, which I would classify as early with a hint of sweet. I personally love the scent of unrefined oils, and they are so much better for your skin!
Because this oil is highly antioxidant, it holds a fairly long shelf life.
