INCI: Triglycerides of Caprylic/Capric Acid (and) Hippophae Rhamnoides Fruit Extract
The fruit of the sea buckthorn, a large shrub, is macerated for this extract. This native to the Northern Hemisphere grows in sandy coastal areas and dry river beds. The fruit is an excellent source of vitamin E, flavonoids, carotenoids, folic acid, and vitamin C.
Sea buckthorn is an antioxidant, anti-aging, acne, anti-inflammatory, emollient, and cell healing and regeneration agent. We think you will love it for hair care like shampoo and conditioner, skincare like lotions, creams, and lip balms.
Usage rates for this oil-soluble extract are generally 0.1 to 10%. We use up to 1% in the liquid bases like shampoo and conditioner, and 2 to 4 % in massage oils. Under extreme conditions, we can see the usage as high as 10%, but not as a daily care product.
Sometimes people call this Seabuckthorn, and sometimes it is called Sea Buckthorn. No matter what you call it, it still is fabulous!
