One of our absolute favourite ingredients to incorporate into our formulas is sea buckthorn extract. Derived from the small orange berries that grow on the sea buckthorn plant, this incredible extract has a long list of skin-enhancing properties, such as the ability to reduce the effects of inflammation, strengthen the skin barrier and boost elasticity, among others.
Full of fatty acids
Sea buckthorn is rich in Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9, fatty acids that have a long list of skin benefits. Omega 3 facilitates better healing, provides rich hydration and boosts elasticity. Omega 6 has the ability to fight the effects of inflammation and is incredibly rich in antioxidants. Omega 7 has healing properties, helps skin regenerate and can calm eczema, psoriasis and acne. Omega 9 helps to strengthen the skin barrier by creating a hydrolipidic film, ensuring hydration and regeneration.
Rich in vitamins
Highly concentrated in antioxidants, sea buckthorn extract contains an exceptional amount of vitamins A, C and E, which are highly effective in skin care products. Vitamin A is anti-infectious and essential for the general health of your skin. Vitamin E is antioxidant-rich and protects against free radicals. And Vitamin C regenerates + stimulates cells and protects against bacterial penetration.
Excellent for sensitive skin
Sea buckthorn extract is also a real hero when it comes to sensitive skin. It promotes skin hydration and elasticity, helps treat and prevent acne, has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce redness and can calm eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. Which is why we have incorporated it into so many of our formulas. As far as natural ingredients go, sea buckthorn extract is the best there is. You can find it in The Rebound Serum, The Chill Cream, The Dream Mask, among others.
