Sea buckthorn oil has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy against various ailments.
It is extracted from the berries, leaves and seeds of the sea buckthorn plant (Hippophae rhamnoides), which is a small shrub that grows at high altitudes in the northwest Himalayan region.
The rich oil from the seeds and pulp protects skin and strengthens its barrier function. A high content of linoleic and linolenic acid, palmitoleic acid and vitamin E soothes skin irritations. The carotenoids that give the sea buckthorn oil its orange-red colour and the plant's special relationship with light, air and warmth make sea buckthorn particularly suitable for preventing sun damage to the skin, and for helping to repair skin already damaged by the sun. It prevents skin from drying out and supports healthy interplay of energies within the skin. In our sea buckthorn skin care range, we celebrate this universal talent for life and vitality.
