Who We Are

WELCOME TO BERRY COUNTRY!

Berry Beautiful is a family business located on Vashon Island in Washington State.

We strive to bring to you pure, high quality, healthy products made from red raspberry seeds that we source locally, during berry harvest season (July) here in the Pacific Northwest and from US grown cranberry seeds. We dry and clean our raspberry seeds and then we cold-press them, producing red raspberry seed oil and seed powder. Freshness is key to the quality of our products, so we cold-press our seed in small batches throughout the year to ensure our customers receive the freshest raspberry and cranberry seed products.

After the harvest season is over, and those challenging 12 hour days of hard work drying seed under the hot summer sun are behind us, we take the time to experiment with new ways to use the oils and powders we produce. We keep discovering new ways to use our oils and powders, as we use them at home every day.

Take a look at our skin care products, which includes soaps, serums and creams that incorporate wild-crafted herbs and other botanicals with the seed oils and powders we produce.

How We Make Berry Beautiful Products

ABOUT OUR PROCESS AND HOW OUR PRODUCTS ARE MADE
We all know the delicious raspberry and cranberry fruits – but there is more – the seeds of these berries are also super-foods, packed with vital essential fatty acids, botanical active ingredients and anti-oxidants. When the seeds are pressed they yield a fabulous oil and a nutritious powder. 

Each year the raspberry crop in Whatcom County is harvested during a few short weeks in the summer. We dry raspberry seeds alongside the berry packing houses during the harvest season where berries, fresh from the fields, are packed for shipping to grocery stores and processed into a puree that is used in jams and juices. We dry our seed at low temperatures (below 120 °F), preserving valuable active ingredients found in the seed. After drying, we clean the pomace to isolate the seed and then cold-press seed in four batches throughout the year, ensuring the freshness of our products.

We produce and package our raw oils, powders and skin care products at our food-grade facility on Vashon Island, WA.  After cold-pressing, the oil is mechanically filtered using the same kind of filter (cellulose sheets) that is used for filtering wine and olive oil. The filtered oil is stored under inert gas to ensure no oxidation occurs. The fiber that is left after the oil is pressed out of the seed is milled into a fine powder that is readily digestible and used as a functional food.

Berry Beautiful controls every step of the oil and production process, from the packing house to the cold-pressing of our seeds. This allows us to guarantee the very highest quality and purity of all of our products.


Food Grade Berry Seed Products

NATURE IS OUR PARTNER
We believe that everything you put on or in your body should work to enhance both your beauty and health. So we make only 100% pure fresh products with proven, unmatched benefits.

Berry Beautiful strives to foster well-being in everything we do and every product we make. All of our products are ecologically responsible because they start with raspberry and cranberry fruit pomace that has traditionally been discarded by fruit processors. We re-purpose this pomace, using it as the feedstock that is the foundation for all of our products.

Our products harness the generosity of nature offering an alternative to industrial based skin care products and nutritional supplements, which often rely on chemicals and made-in-the-lab molecules. Pure and effective, our products nurture the health and beauty of our customers, while supporting the healing of the earth.

Every individual's well-being is a function of their wise use of the bounties that nature offers.  Whether that be what we eat or what we put on our skin; our birth right, what we've evolved using, are botanical products, which have always enhanced people's beauty and health when used wisely.
