Sea Buckthorn Oil: A Superfruit for Skincare
You might not know about sea buckthorn yet, but this miracle berry is gaining popularity for its wide range of benefits from cardiovascular support to anti-aging properties.
What is Sea Buckthorn?
Don’t let the name fool you, we don’t find this oil in the sea. Instead, it comes from berries and seeds of the sea buckthorn plant which grows in the mountainous and coastal areas of Europe and Asia. For hundreds of years, people have been using the oil squeezed from its berries to revitalize their skin and heal wounds!
The bright orange color of the berries is a sign of high carotenoid content (similar to carrots). It was used in China and India for general immunity reasons as well as to relieve coughs and help digestion. During the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, sea buckthorn was used to help heal the skin of burn victims.
