Our Sea Buckthorn from Siberian Russia is of the highest quality. From the Sea Buckthorn deciduous tree, scientists believe the hardy tree originates from the Himalayan regions.
Sea Buckthorn is suitable for all skin types. It is safe to use neat on the skin, though the rich colour makes this not ideal as it will discolour the skin. It is best used as part of a blend with other carrier oils - ideal candidates being camellia and coconut whose lightness combines beautifully.
What makes Sea Buckthorn sensational is the unbelievable abundance of health promoting bioactive components which make up its composition.
Sea Buckthorn has 6 different fat soluble vitamins, 22 fatty acids, 42 kinds of lipids and 36 kinds of flavanoids. It is the richest natural source of Vitamin A (Beta Carotene) and Omega 7. This abundance of rich ingredients makes it a skincare necessity.

We love Sea Buckthorn at Naturallythinking, rich in fatty acids, vitamins and minerals it, add Sea Buckthorn (1 - 2%) to virtually any other carrier oil to give it superstar properties.
Due to the deep natural colour of this oil it is best used as part of a blend, although there are no contra-indications to using neat it may cause colouration to the skin which may take a few days to disappear if used neat. Normally used in a blend up to 10% to avoid the colouration but receive the benefits of this amazing oil.
