The Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream is our best-selling product. It’s also great for busy moms who don’t have a lot of extra time to take care of themselves. As the mother of two young children, I know that taking care of your skin may not always be a top priority. That’s why I love the Sea Buckthorn Cream; it contains a variety of natural ingredients, carefully selected for their ability to support skin health. So I know my skin is protected, moisturized, and nourished every time I use this cream.


This amazing moisturizer contains sea buckthorn and grape seed oils and pomegranate seed extract, all of which have high levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect the skin from damage caused by exposure to UVA and UVB rays and environmental toxins. Both the sun’s rays and various pollutants can create free radicals, which can cause damage to our cells and tissues over time. The antioxidants in the Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream work to counteract these effects, keeping skin healthy.


Sea buckthorn oil is also high in vitamins A, C, and E and the minerals zinc, sulfur, selenium, and copper. And it contains omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 7. The human body cannot produce omega 3’s and 6’s on it’s own, so the skin greatly benefits from topical sources of them. Fatty acids are absorbed into the skin and incorporated into cell walls, where they help to act as a protective barrier around the cells. Omega 3’s and 6’s also help mitigate against sun damage, support the body’s production of collagen and elastin, encourage new cell growth, and deeply moisturize the skin. Omega 7 can be produced in the body, but production slows with age. Omega 7 helps keep skin firm and supports tissue regeneration.


Pomegranates are high in vitamins C and E, fatty acids, and ellagic acid, a potent antioxidant (source). Applied topically, pomegranate extract is particularly helpful in the prevention and treatment of sunburn. Studies have found that ellagic acid can even inhibit sunburn in young women (source). In addition, it can enhance the effectiveness of sunscreens.


Calendula helps soothe irritated skin and is known for its ability to heal it. It is useful in the treatment of eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis (source). It is also excellent for relieving dry skin and clearing up acne.


Finally the Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream contains aloe, which nourishes the skin with numerous vitamins and minerals and moisturizes it with its high water content. Aloe is rich in antioxidants, including vitamins C and E and beta carotene. These nutrients can help keep skin firm and hydrated.


The Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream is packed with ingredients that promote healthy skin. So busy moms can trust that they are taking good care of their skin when they use it.
