The seeds of raspberries are often removed to use them for a host of products (fruit juice, coulis, grenadine, sauces…). The seeds that are removed are offered a second life at Body&Bess and processed into high-quality oil.
Body&Bess has developed a production process where the seeds are stored at a low temperature directly after they are removed from the raspberries. The seeds are processed into the unique, highly concentrated skin care products of Body&Bess in four steps.
- Cooling and drying the seeds
After they are transported and stored at a low temperature, the seeds are dried. The quality of the oil depends on achieving the right humidity content.
- Separating the oil and the seed
The oil is separated from the seeds after drying. This process takes place under very specific circumstances, 100% natural without chemical solvents.
- Skin care based on concentrated oil
The raspberry seed oil is subsequently used in our various care products in highly concentrated form, allowing us to offer a strikingly effective range of cosmetics.
- Grinding the oil-free seeds
Even the oil-free seeds are used. They are ground to various kernel sizes and used in our scrubs.
In short: a range of skin care products that originate from a waste product, manufactured entirely zero waste.
