Sea Buckthorn Oil: Your Summer Secret
The sun’s high in the sky, and it shines long and hot each day. It makes your mood brighter, brings back memories of childhood games and lawn sprinklers and jumping off the pier into the lake. Your summer also brings the pain of sunburn, dry skin, itching, and even the possibility of deep skin damage and even the danger of skin cancer.
Sea Buckthorn Oil … Funny name … Fabulous ingredient
The sea buckthorn plant is native to Russia, Mongolia and China. It’s an uninteresting looking plant of the genus Hippophae, and belies its name—it doesn’t grow in the sea, and it isn’t what botanists like to call a true buckthorn. It is, however, a true benefit to you—especially this or any summer.
What we know from a couple of hundred scientific studies is this: The oil extracted from sea buckthorn berries is powerfully healing. Burns, wounds, and lesions all benefit from sea buckthorn oil’s healing power.
Scientists are now studying sea buckthorn oil’s benefits in combating acute skin dryness, wrinkles, and other markers of aging. Sea buckthorn oil works on the cellular level, bringing its rich load of phytosterol, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and antioxidants to work deep within your skin. It also removes puffiness, increases the elasticity of blood vessels, and normalizes circulation. Sea buckthorn oil has been used to successfully treat the radiation burns of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Moreover, sea buckthorn oil is ultra-rich in beta-carotene, which helps protect cells from ionizing radiation in space—as a result Russian cosmonauts use it in space as a protective topical cream.
