Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil is a bright red to yellow/orange oil, with superb anti-oxidant properties. Sea Buckthorn oil is a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and vitamin C.
The orange color of the berries is an indicator of the level of phytonutrients in the oil. Phytonutrients are extremely effective anti-oxidants and anti-cancer compounds. When applied topically, sea buckthorn has been studied to show reduction in sun damage, relief from sun burns, and healing wounds. It has also been used in formulations that help reduce acne, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin and even stretch marks.
Organic sea buckthorn oil was tested and is shown to have 2.4 times more carotenoids than other oils. Carotenoids are powerful anti-oxidants, that can help combat bacteria and skin disorders when applied topically. Incorporating organic sea buckthorn oil into your facial serums, lotions, creams, soap bars, conditioners, hair masks, etc. can boost your formulation’s anti-oxidant profile.
