Sea Buckthorn: A Star Ingredient in our Serum
A key ingredient in our Serum, sea buckthorn, produces berries that are rich in a variety of vitamins, fats, and phytochemicals, all vital for skin health.
Here are four components of sea buckthorn that make it an ideal topical:
- vitamin E This important nutrient protects cell membranes from oxidative damage, helping to prevent signs of aging.
- omega fatty acids Sea buckthorn has a unique ratio of omega fats and touts four major types- 3, 6, 9, and 7. These work together to encourage collagen production for youthful, more elastic skin.
- vitamin C Sea buckthorn is an excellent source of naturally-occurring vitamin C. Its levels of vitamin C compare to that in 3-5 (or more!) oranges. In addition to aiding collagen levels, it is a potent antioxidant. No wonder it has been shown to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and treat discoloration and scars.
- carotenoids Beta carotene and lycopene are two kinds of carotenoids- pigments that can act as vitamin A and antioxidants.
We recommend our Serum for dry, mature, and sun-damaged skin types. In addition to sea buckthorn, it contains coffee berry, carrot seed, and argan oils, all suited to hydrate, protect, and rejuvenate the skin.
