The Raspberry is a delicious fruit, esteemed by gastronomes. According to legend, it was originally white and first appeared in Crete, where the young Jupiter, future king of the gods of Ancient Greece, had his home. One day, Jupiter would not stop crying, so his servant gathered some Raspberries to console the boy. In so doing, she scratched her arm and her blood stained the white fruit red.
In cosmetics, moisture-rich Raspberry—with its flavonoids, sugars, and fruit acids—delivers an instant radiance boost to dull, devitalized skin. The oil extracted from its seeds contains nourishing and comforting essential fatty acids.
