Sea buckthorn is a resilient and nutrient dense little fruit, similar to a grape in shape but smaller in size, and quite bitter to taste. 

It’s actually fairly new to our part of the world, but has been used for centuries in other parts of the world like Northwestern Europe, Central Asia, Western and Northern China, and the Himalayas. 

It varies in color from bright yellow to a darker orange and is packed in nutrients making it  a popular berry for use in various dishes. 

Of course, we want to share it’s beauty benefits here, of which there are many and you won’t be disappointed! When topically applied, sea buckthorn has wonderful therapeutic properties; helping in the treatment of sun damage, healing wounds, as well as balancing oily skin while also protecting against the signs of aging. 

Sea buckthorn is packed in antioxidants and has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, all of which aid in healing and restoring the skin. In fact, it is often referred to as the beautyberry thanks to its ability to hydrate the skin, fade spots, heal scars and minimize the appearance of wrinkles

Here are some interesting facts about this small yet mighty berry!

  • Higher levels of fatty acids, including the elusive omega 7 
  • Contains 10x as much vitamin C than that of an orange
  • Contains 3x as much vitamin A than a side of carrots
  • High levels of vitamin E
  • 190 BioActive compounds that have been trusted and used for over 1000 years by people all over the world

Willow Bark

Willow bark extract is an excellent natural alternative to harsh synthetic BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) as it contains salicylic acid, a natural BHA. Willow bark will aid in shedding dead skin cells due to natural exfoliating properties, keeping the pores clear and minimizing the incidence of further breakouts.

Because it is a natural ingredient, it also contains a heap of antioxidants in the form of flavonoids, along with tannins, minerals and phenolic acids to rejuvenate the skin and aid in new cell formation.

Willow bark should not sensitize your skin to sunlight, but to be on the safe side, wear a mineral SPF when heading out. SPF is always the last step in your routine.
