Seabuckthorn Berry- Cert. Organic
The sea buckthorn is a hardy shrub that grows from Europe across to northwestern China and is thought to be up to two billion years old. It has been used for thousands of years by many cultures for medicinal purposes. Known as the "Holy Fruit of the Himalayas," sea buckthorn has been cherished by native Tibetans for centuries for its incredible nutritive qualities.
Sea buckthorn contains over 190 bioactive compounds that restore, revitalize, and protect skin including vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, and amino acids such as leucine, isoleucine, valine, methionine, phenylalanine, and lysine. These hardy berries help nourish the skin with powerful antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids and essential fatty acids, including omega 3 and 6 and the rare Omega 7 – a key building block to healthy skin. In fact, sea buckthorn oil extract is 80-95 per cent essential fatty acid, so it’s extraordinarily rich.
It has 10 times more vitamin C than oranges and is the 3rd highest source of Vitamin E in the plant world. Russian cosmonauts use its oil to help heal radiation burns that occur upon re-entry to the earth’s atmosphere.
