Raspberry Seed oil has an impressive antioxidant profile. It is said to have phenomenal anti-inflammatory properties, is rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, contains a high level of Vitamin E. Said to be even greater than those of Almond, Avocado, Grapeseed and Wheatgerm oils. On it's own it is not recommend as replacement for a sunscreen.

In the Journal of Food Chemistry an article by Oomah claims Raspberry seed oil has a high SPF. Bold claims:The optical transmission of raspberry seed oil, especially in the UV range (290±400 nm) is comparable to that of titanium dioxide preparations with sun protection factor for UVB (SPF) and protection factor for UV-A (PFA) values between 28-50 and 6.75-7.5, respectively (Kobo Products Inc., South Plainfield, NJ). https://formulabotanica.com/not-use-coconut-oil-sunscreen/
