Ingredient spotlight - Sea Buckthorn(a super berry)!

Updated: Oct 4, 2023

Sea buckthorn(Hippophae rhamnoides) is a thorny shrub that grows in the high altitude northwest region of the Himalayas. This super berry has a 1000 year old heritage of healing and anti-aging due to it being one of the most nutrient dense botanicals in nature. Just one single drop of the oil contains 190 different bioactive compounds! It is packed with all 4 omega fatty acids(3, 6, 7, 9) antioxidants, vitamins, carotenoids, palmitoleic acid and phytosterols. What this translates to for your skin is reduced inflammation, redness, and water loss in every cell(plump cells=plump skin). Studies have also shown its effectiveness in promoting skin elasticity. You can find sea buckthorn in Roots Botanica's Essential Face Oil.
