Sea buckthorn fruit oil

Sea buckthorn fruit oil, extracted from the berries of the sea buckthorn bush (Hippophae Rhamnoides), is an extraordinary ingredient in our skin care, especially in our facial creme, due to its rich content of nutrients, vitamins, and fatty acids. Here is a detailed overview of its properties:

Vitamins in Sea Buckthorn Oil

  • Vitamin C: Sea buckthorn oil is exceptionally rich in vitamin C, known for its antioxidant properties. Vitamin C helps combat free radicals, brighten the skin, and promote collagen production, which is crucial for skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Vitamin E: This vitamin is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from environmental stressors like UV rays and pollution. It also helps keep the skin moisturized and reduces signs of aging.
  • Vitamin A: Known for its anti-aging properties, vitamin A promotes cell renewal and repair, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Vitamin B-Complex: Several B vitamins, including folic acid, help maintain skin health by promoting cell renewal and repair.

Fatty Acids in Sea Buckthorn Oil

  • Omega-7 (Palmitoleic Acid): Omega-7 is rare in the plant world and one of the reasons we chose sea buckthorn fruit oil for FACIAL CREAM 01. Omega-7 helps improve any imbalances in the skin and rebuild skin cells. It's also useful in combating dryness and improving skin elasticity.
  • Omega-3 and Omega-6 (Alpha-Linolenic Acid and Linoleic Acid): These essential fatty acids play a key role in maintaining the skin's barrier function, reducing inflammation, and keeping the skin hydrated.
  • Omega-9 (Oleic and Erucic Acid): Helps to strengthen the skin's natural barrier, improve elasticity and moisture, and aids in reducing fine lines.

Other Properties and Benefits of Sea Buckthorn Oil

  • Anti-inflammatory Properties: Sea buckthorn oil can help reduce redness and inflammation in the skin, making it ideal for sensitive or problematic skin.
  • Healing Properties: Due to its unique composition, sea buckthorn oil can promote the healing of skin damage such as sunburn, minor wounds, and other skin irritations.
  • Hydration: The oil is effective at locking moisture into the skin, making it more supple and hydrated.
  • Promotes Skin Health: With its rich composition of nutrients, sea buckthorn oil supports the overall health of the skin, resulting in a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Overall, sea buckthorn fruit oil is a versatile and powerful ingredient in facial creams, offering a wide range of benefits that can significantly improve the appearance and health of the skin.

Please note that there is a difference in properties between sea buckthorn oil extracted from the seeds and from the berries. The sea buckthorn fruit oil (which we use) can be recognized by the warm yellow color it imparts to the cream.
