This bright orange-red berry comes from a hardy shrub native to the Himalayas and can survive temperatures well below zero. Because of its rich history as a superfood and herbal medicine, this resilient herb is now grown and loved worldwide. Over the centuries, its use in herbal medicine has been well-documented, particularly in Chinese and Tibetan Medicine, to support the skin, digestive system, and immune function.
Sea buckthorn is sour, oily, and astringent, and it's packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids. These fatty acids are extra important as they boost the skin’s elasticity and lock in hydration. The berry is also rich in carotenoids, which promote cell turnover and regeneration. In herbalism, it's commonly used for its ability to soothe, balance, and reduce skin irritation.
This skin brightener is one of our favorite botanical oils to formulate with. It's an ideal solution for those who want to preserve their skin, stimulate collagen production, and smooth out fine lines. We use it on all skin types and formulate with it when we want something to deliver deep, conditioning hydration.
All our sea buckthorn is sourced equitably and organically from Asia; locations vary depending on the season. We support regenerative, organic, and equitable farming practices in efforts to leave a positive impact on our communities and planet.
