Sea Buckthorn Benefits for Skin
Why We Love Sea Buckthorn Oil
Sea Buckthorn is gushing with vitamins A and E and being from The PURE Collection, it is of course 100% Certified Organic. The benefits to the skin are many, the oil nourishes, heals and protects the skin.
It is the only fruit to contain all four types of omega fatty acids, omega 3, omega 6, omega 7, and omega 9.
This gentle oil is multi tasking, helping to soothe eczema, treat acne, repair sun damage and rebuild collagen for a more youthful appearance.
Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil or Fruit Oil?
We first started to formulate with the Sea Buckthorn seed oil, which can be derived from both the seed and fruit.
The seed produces a lighter oil, however after much testing, we discovered that the seed oil is not as effective for the skin as is the oil that is produced from the fruit.
The fruit oil is dark orange in colour and due to the high carotenoids, it has a high viscous consistency whereas the seed oil is a pale yellow colour and has a lower viscosity.
This left us with a dilemma, because if the fruit derived oil is not massaged in properly to the skin, it may leave a stain on clothes or bed-linen.
Quality over Quantity
It would have been easy for us to go with the less expensive, and much more commonly used (however less effective) seed oil, but knowing that our customers demand high quality over mass quantity we opted for the fruit oil.
