Sea buckthorn oil is extracted from the berries, leaves and seeds of thorny sea buckthorn plant. It's a small shrubby plant that grows at high altitudes like the northwest Himalayan region. It's actually been called the "holy fruit" of that region because it can be used as an edible or topical.
There is an abundance of active ingredients in sea buckthorn oil that benefit the skin, but it’s the unique unsaturated fatty acids (omega-3, omega-7, and omega-6) that give it skin regeneration and repair properties.
Sea Buckthorn oil is easily absorbed, helping to protect skin against inflammation and oxidative stress which is why we love it as an ingredient in Avoila Nourishing Face Oil.
