What has happened with me since I’ve been ingesting it since 2002: Reduced my cholesterol [said doc], took away acid stomach, joint pain, cankers on tongue, improved vision [said eye doc], keeps me regular. Applied in/outside for yeast infection and gone in 2 days. I DO NOT SELL THIS FOR INGESTION. I take it because *I* am in charge of my health. YOU do what YOU want.
Seabuckthorn seed oil does not stain. If you were going to get 1 oil to use in all ways I would suggest sea buckthorn SEED oil.
With both oils, a little goes a long way.
EVERYONE else’s products that are only made up of berry oil and a carrier oil either must be washed off due to the staining, or are so diluted as to not be much good on the skin.
I recommend the Seabuckthorn seed oil for external applications UNLESS your skin is dark. Then using the sea buckthorn berry [aka pulp] oil diluted with another oil, like our Moringa oil, will be fabulous on your skin, bringing a glow. Sea buckthorn pulp [berry] oil can also be added to products to enhance the properties and/or for coloring.
Seabuckthorn seed oil is light, non-staining & readily absorbed into the skin, can be used under make-up, not very greasy, it’s considered a ‘dry’ oil.
Clinical studies have shown seabuckthorn seed oil to heal many ailments.
Stomatitis, ulcers, rosacea, eczema, vaginitis and more. [monograph ‘Lipophilic Components of Sea Buckthorn Seeds and Berries and Physiological Effects of Sea Buckthorn Oils’ Yang Baoru, 1999, ISBN 951-29-2221-5]
Both oils absorb UV rays due to their super high beta-carotene content, however do NOT use them as a sunscreen. Add to lotions
EFA means ‘essential fatty acids’, which are essential to the health of our bodies and skin. Here is what having an ample supply of EFA in your body does:
increases growth hormone production
increases lean body mass
improves immune system function
lowers cholesterol levels
improves oxygen utilization and energy transformation
