Sea Buckthorn Oil, aka Sea Berry, aka the holy fruit of the Himalayas, is cold pressed from the orange fruits and nutrient dense seeds of the thorny sea buckthorn shrub (Hippophae rhamnoides).
You can find it in our wisest wind-down ritual: Night Cap Serum.
Here’s why you want sea buckthorn oil on your skin:
Wow! It's got a lot going on inside. It's stuffed with vitamins A, B, C, E, K and antioxidants that ward off skin pollutants. Sterols fortify the lipid barrier which shields your skin from toxins and keeps the moisture in. Fatty acids promote deep moisture which translates to skin elasticity and cellular regeneration for your face. Plus upwards of a 100 organic compounds found in sea buckthorn oil.
Deep Healing Inside and Out
Sea Buckthorn is used both topically and medicinally. It's made into both an immune-boosting juice chock full of vitamin C and E as well as a nutritional tea to soothe coughs, indigestions and hypertension.
Its holistic topical applications are astounding. Use Sea Buckthorn oil to increase skin elasticity, clear acne, treat burns and inflammation, balance out dark spots and protect skin from UV rays - *Fun Fact* Russian cosmonauts applied Sea Buckthorn to protect their skin from harmful cosmic radiation! Plants are amazing!
A little goes a long way
It may be pricey, but that's because it’s worth it!
Seed oils are set apart by their fatty acid content. Which is great for moisturizing, protecting, and healing the skin barrier. You won’t need much product to achieve an even layer on your face and decolletage before heading to bed.
Why Night Cap?
We recommend sea buckthorn oil for your nighttime regime because of its higher viscosity and nutrient richness. Give it the necessary time to hydrate the skin while working to harmonize skin tone, reduce fine lines, scars, and heal blemishes.
But you do you, boo.
Sea Buckthorn is also a protectant against UV rays and can be used for daytime wear, if your skin and routine permits.
