Rubus idaeus, commonly called raspberry or red raspberry, is a thorny deciduous shrub whichproduces delicious red berries. One of the Greek myths tells that raspberries were initially white butwhen the nymph Ida pricked her finger on a thorn while picking the berries for baby Zeus, the berrieswere stained with her blood and they have remained red ever since. Its Latin name, Rubus idaeus,means “bramble of Ida”. The berries are a good food source, which can be eaten raw or made intopreserves. The leaves are therapeutically used as an herbal medicine internally for gastrointestinal andrespiratory problems, and topically for skin rashes. A tea of raspberry leaf is popular with pregnantwomen. It is thought to tone the womb and help with child birth.
R. idaeus extract induces the genes responsible for skin hydration, such as aquaporin 3, filaggrin,involucrin, and hyaluronic acid synthase. Moreover, the liposoluble extract increased the synthesis ofthe extracellular matrix components in cultured fibroblasts and showed a remarkable skin-hydratingcapacity when tested on human skin in vivo.
