Even though it’s also known as the Sea Berry, Sea Buckthorn doesn’t come from the sea. It’s actually from a shrub that is native to Europe and Asia. According to Greek legend, the ancient Greeks used sea buckthorn leaf in a diet for racehorses, and that's where it got its botanical name—Hippophae, which means “shiny horse.”
Sea Buckthorn is a great source of vitamin C, Carotene, Vitamin E and amino acids. It also happens to be a super source of rare omega-7 essential fatty acids which can help firm skin. Filled with powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, it is great for nourishing and soothing skin. It can improve the skin's texture, elasticity, and refine the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It has also been known to help reduce redness and imperfections such as acne, eczema or rosacea.
