Read on to find out the awesome benefits you can reap from sea buckthorn oil.

Boosts Skin Health

For a shinier and softer skin, the epidermis (topmost part of the skin) needs to regenerate naturally from time to time. Using synthetic chemicals can rid your skin of essential nourishment and expose it to harm. However, sea buckthorn oil takes a natural approach to stimulating the regeneration of skin cells. A recent study showed that applying diluted sea buckthorn oil to the skin promotes skin elasticity and reduces dryness. Due to the Omega 3, 6, 7, and 9 oils it contains, the organic oil helps your skin retain moisture and repair itself from scarring.
