Seabuckthorn Berry Oil

Hippophae rhamnoides

Seabuckthorn Berry Oil

Cold pressed and CO2 extracted Seabuckthorn Berry Oils are both commercially available. Seabuckthorn Berry Oil is generally extracted from the seeds or the fruit pulp of the berries. Some Seabuckthorn Berry Oils are a blend of both the seed and fruit pulp oils. Seabuckthorn Berry Seed Oil is much richer in essential fatty acids than is the fruit pulp oil, The seed oil is also lighter in color. Seabuckthorn Berry Fruit Pulp Oil is generally only used at 1-3% dilution because of its intense color. If used at full strength, it can stain the skin.

Both the seed and fruit pulp Seabuckthorn Berry Oils are highly nutritive oils used in skin care applications, most especially facial serums and anti-aging/anti-wrinkle blends. The oils are rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and other nutritive compounds. The large ratio of beta carotene is responsible for the vivid orange color of the fruit pulp oil.
