Hippophae rhamnoides is a small shrub that grows on calcareous dunes, but also grows at high altitudes in the northern Himalayan region and produces fruits that are also called the sacred fruit of the Himalayas. The vegetable oil offered by Arc en Sels is extracted exclusively from the seeds by CO2 extraction, in order to preserve their precious properties and protect them from oxidation.
Known for thousands of years and used in particular in Central Asia by 8th century Tibetan monks, the oil is known in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine for its health benefits.
Sea buckthorn oil is one of the few vegetable oils that provides all four fatty acids: omega-3, omega-6, omega-7 and omega-9. This very high richness in fatty acids gives it regulating and regenerating properties. It is perfect for tired, dull skin that needs to be revitalised. Excellent anti-ageing potential, its powerful antioxidants combat free radical damage. These active ingredients stimulate the skin's repair mechanisms and soothe irritated skin.
Use this unique beauty oil as a serum under your day cream or at night alone on the whole face.
This oil is the all-season protective ally for all skin types, as its presence of palmitoleic acid (omega 7) makes it perfectly adapted to skin tissues and virtually non-comedogenic.
In spring, its richness in provitamin A gives the skin a healthy glow and prepares it for tanning.
In summer, this Sea Buckthorn oil is essential because its high content of omega-7 and omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation after UV exposure and protect the skin from sun damage.
In autumn, the high omega-6 content helps maintain skin elasticity and regenerate the hydrolipidic film of the skin to prepare it for cold damage.
In winter, sea buckthorn vegetable oil, thanks to its exceptional content of vitamin E and omega 9, has an antioxidant, free radical-fighting and rejuvenating effect. These assets will help you limit the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
