Spotlight on sea buckthorn

sea buckthorn

Antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, omega-7 fatty acids -- sea buckthorn has it all. And the uber-berry from the east is popping up all over the beauty care category. Traditionally, sea buckthorn, which derives from a shrub native to Europe and Asia, has been used in anti-aging applications, as well as to heal burns. Some science suggests that sea buckthorn may, indeed, offer skin-healing and anti-inflammatory properties. I admit that when I first started using sea buckthorn-based skin care, it was because it smelled so good. Here are some of my favorite natural sea buckthorn-based products...


Weleda Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion

I use this incredible body moisturizer daily. It's thin, fragrant and filled with fatty acids that nourish dry skin.

Aubrey Organics Skin Care Bar with Sandlewood

Smooth, soft and effective. A good option for customers with sensitive skin.


This sea-buckthorn skin care company offers a whole line of supplements, body care and beverages. The Rosacea Skin Support System offers up the berry's anti-inflammatory action to soothe red and irritated skin.
