Sea buckthorn has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for everything – to relieve coughs, aid in digestion and even reduce pain. Today, it is becoming well known for its ability to repair and rejuvenate skin. Sea buckthorn oil is a powerful cleanser when used topically and can help repair sunburn and other types of skin damage.
Nutritionally speaking, sea buckthorn seed and sea buckthorn fruit are incredibly nutrient-rich; they contain over 190 nutrients and antioxidants. It’s high in vitamin C, A, B and E, carotenoids, and so much more. The seed oil is rich in omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, while the fruit is filled with monounsaturated fats and omega-7. The unique makeup of sea buckthorn – with its high fatty acid content and nutrient profile – makes it one of the most coveted herbal oils on the market. A short list of benefits includes promoting skin health and preventing signs of aging when used topically, and it can promote healing of digestive tract irritation, brain function and liver health when consumed.
