This oil contains a high concentration of the incredibly rare Palmitoleic acid which is a fatty acid that naturally occurs in the sebum of the skin. This fatty acid promotes nourishment, protection of the skin and is known to support skin cells.

Containing an abundance of fatty acids, as well as phytonutrient Lycopene which all help to protect the skin from free radicals and help maintain the skin's healthy epidermal barrier. Sea Buckthorn oil is also known to be beneficial for sun burn and skin rejuvenation due to its antioxidant properties. This oil is also rich in B vitamins and is the only plant source to contain omega's 3, 6, 7 and 9.
Sea Buckthorn's high omega 7 fatty acid (Palmitoleic) content also imparts a natural scent, which is completely natural and not an indication of rancidity. This is typical of an unrefined and high quality Sea Buckthorn oil. This oil is highly absorbable yet naturally very pigmented with a bright orange hue, due to its high lycopene and carotenoid content. The colour will stay on the skin until it is washed off, or you can apply to give the skin a natural tanned colour. It is best to use a small amount, or even mix with other carrier oils, such as sweet almond, to dilute the hue on the skin.
