Seabuckthorn: The Little-Known Skincare Superhero

Seabuckthorn: The Little-Known Skincare Superhero

Introducing one of the latest in skincare trends, Seabuckthorn Oil.  Living Libations Seabuckthorn, Best Skin Ever has created a powerful formula that includes a handful of other pure plant botanicals besides Seabuckthorn oil.

This is what makes it so useful from a makeup remover and exfoliator, to a personal blend of serums to make it unique to you. It even does wonders for the skin as for post-sun rehydration if you’ve spent a long time in the sun.

What Is Seabuckthorn Oil?

For starters, it’s actually NOT from the sea. It’s also known as a Siberian pineapple (Hippophaes rhamnoides), a flowering shrub that produces berries. These berries are cold pressed into a pulp or oil that is known as Seabuckthorn.

Seabuckthorn grows around the world, found in Europe, Asia Minor, and throughout Central Asia. The berries of Seabuckthorn have ten times the amount of Vitamin C compared to an orange and are the third highest source of vitamin E in the world among plants. Its vitamin and nutrient-rich qualities are what have made this such a quickly-growing favorite in skin care.

It has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for a widespread array of conditions and is thought to have benefits and may help stomach, heart, and liver health. However, like many other natural remedies, proving its effectiveness when taken orally through scientific research is extremely difficult and limited.

Ways Seabuckthorn Can Make Your Skin Glow 

Rich in Antioxidants

Seabuckthorn oil is great for fighting free radicals because of its nutrient-rich components. Omega 3,6,9, fatty acids, vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B6 & E, alpha- and beta-carotene, and almost 200 other bioactive compounds are some of the main components that make it so effective.

Moisturizes Skin While Regulating Oil

Linoleic acid, a naturally found chemical in the skin, is found in Seabuckthorn as well. Though it can cause acne for a small number of acne-prone people, linoleic acid generally helps skin regulate moisture and oil levels.

Prevents Moisture Loss and Maintains Skin’s Lipid Barrier 

Seabuckthorn lipids help moisturize skin while also improving elasticity in those with dry or mature skin. A study conducted in 2017 found that one of the lipids in Seabuckthorn can speed up cell regeneration and renewal.

Decreases Fine Lines and Wrinkles

This oil contains sterols, which reduce water loss and improves the firmness of the skin. In turn, this helps decrease the noticeability of fine lines and wrinkles altogether.

When Seabuckthorn Isn't the Best Choice 

Seabuckthorn is safe to use and should react well with most skin types. The formula is even gentle enough to use safely on children. If you’re prone to breakouts, test the oil in a small area first. Regardless of whether you use it as a toner, a cleanser, or a moisturizer, it is not recommended that you apply it more than once daily.

Stop letting your dull, dry skin be a thorn in your side. Give your face and skin the opportunity to absorb Seabuckthorn’s nutrients and antioxidants today, so you can find your Best Skin Ever by tomorrow!
