Raspberry NECTA®: A cold-pressed oil-soluble active made from upcycled raspberry seeds
A nourishing active raspberry oil, rich in essential fatty acids and a natural source of vitamin E. Developed to hydrate and protect, Raspberry NECTA® is a naturally potent antioxidant made from upcycled raspberry seeds; a by-product of the juice production industry.
