Also known as 'sandthorn' and 'seaberry', a native species to Europe and Asia (particularly India and China), Sea Buckthorn shrubs typically reach 0.5-6 meters tall, tend to flourish in harshly arid, sandy regions, and are incredibly tolerant to salty air and soil.
The berries are vibrant orange in color and contain some of the highest concentrations of Vitamin C in the world: 15 times more potent than the orange. The berries also carry dense contents of carotenoids, vitamin E, amino acids, dietary minerals, and beta-sitosterol and polyphenolic acids, thus making Sea Buckthorn essential oil an invaluable ally. This essential oil is distilled using carbon dioxide from the ripe berries of Sea Buckthorn plants Certified Organically grown in Lithuania. The carbon dioxide distillation process allows all the fatty acids, minerals and vitamins from the berries to flow unaltered by heat or pressure into the concentrated essential oil. This Sea Buckthorn CO2 extract also contains a high level of beta-carotene, giving it a deep red-orange color.
