Sea Buckthorn is a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. It is considered to be the most potent source of Omega-7 (palmitoleic acid), which is a key for healthy skin and hair.
When choosing Sea Buckthorn products, the general rule is: the more sea buckthorn, the better. Where the berry is sourced is also important. It can be found in Asia, Russia, Europe, and Canada, with the quality and nutrient content varying widely. Sea Buckthorn from Tibet’s Himalayan Mountains has the highest level of Omega-7 fatty acids, and is considered to be the best.
Here are five of our favourite cosmetics with this super berry:
a. Making lipbalms is actually quite easy, that’s why there’re so many small brands offering lines of lip products with different tastes and colours. In the States, there’s even a company that makes lipbalms with horchata. Over here in Sweden, we keep things a bit more grounded with Naked Lips‘ Sea Buckthorn Organic Lip Balm. It contains nutrients, moisture elements and antioxidants to keep your lips soft and delicious.
b. If you have no relatives in Siberia or in Himalayas to send you monthly Sea Buckthorn supplies, Sea Buckthorn Cellular Support from Sibu might be a convenient alternative. Every pill is packed with a super-dose of Omega 7 fatty acid and Sea Buckthorn oil antioxidant to offer nutritional support for skin and mucous membranes, remorselessly fight free-radicals and increase vitality. In case you’d prefer eating chocolates instead of boring capsules with healthy oils, Sibu does sell decadent Belgium truffles blended with 250 mg of Omega-7-rich Sea Buckthorn oil just for you. Can it even get any better?
c. If you have dry or chemically treated hair, a weekly dose of Nourishing Hair Mask from Amika will get you back on track in no time. It’s packed with all the goodness that Sea Buckthorn has to offer, including: Omegas 3, 6, 9 and 7, an unsurpassed concentration of Vitamin C and E. Obliphica Nourishing Hair Mask infuses locks with extra moisture, while sealing spilt ends – giving you the ultimate repair and deep conditioning.
d. There are a couple of issues we will never grow tired of addressing. On of them is the importance of using SPF products all-year-round and the other one is the potential harmfulness of aluminium-based deodorants. Lavera‘s Deodorant Roll-On, with Orange and Sea Buckthorn is one more safe option that provides all day long sweat protection at no risk for your health at all. It contains natural bamboo fibers, which absorb moisture and odor, while organic essential oils offer a fresh citrus scent.
e. Weleda Sea Buckthorn Repleshing Body Lotion contains organic Sea Buckthorn’s natural vitamins, carotene and unsaturated fatty acids, which support your skin’s vital barrier functions. Combined with organic mallow extracts, shea butter and macadamia seed oil it helps dry skin to look smoother and softer.
