When you think of beloved natural skincare ingredients, Sea Buckthorn probably isn’t the first one to come to mind. It’s one of those ingredients that frequently flies under the radar, but is sneakily powerful. We’re here to pull back the curtain on one of nature’s most effective botanicals, and a key ingredient in our cult-favorite Luxury Beauty Serum.
Sea Buckthorn oil is one of those ingredients that has so many benefits, you almost start to feel like it could be an entire skincare routine all on its own. It is perhaps most famous for its anti-aging capabilities (we know we have your attention now). Not only does it help repair oxidative damage, it also promotes collagen production, which we all know is an essential component of a youthful complexion. The additional collagen plumps the skin to help smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
While you may not have heard of Sea Buckthorn, you’ve probably heard of a little antioxidant called Vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the most coveted skincare ingredients out there, with benefits ranging from the ability to neutralize free radicals to fade dark spots through gentle resurfacing. Yes, we all need a little Vitamin C (or a lot) in our routines, and Sea Buckthorn has 10x more Vitamin C than an orange, making it one of the most potent natural sources available. It’s also one of the only oils to contain all four types of omega fatty acids. It is deeply hydrating and repairs skin’s natural barrier, making it a phenomenal skincare component for those suffering from inflammatory conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Don’t think that Sea Buckthorn is just for those with dry skin, though! For those with oily or acne-prone skin, Sea Buckthorn is an unexpectedly effective ingredient to add to your skincare arsenal. Its inflammation-fighting abilities calm existing breakouts while simultaneously helping to prevent future flare ups by controlling excess sebum production. As if that weren’t enough, the omega-rich oil helps fade acne scars for overall clearer skin.
