Sea Buckthorn oil is highly prized due to its great abilities to grow hair, heal damaged skin and reduce symptoms of skin and hair conditions. This oil is dark and beautifully rich. It contains beta carotene (contributes to its orange-red pigment), tocopherols (vitamin E), essential fatty acids (such as: linoleic, Oleic, Palmitic, Stearic) and phytosterols. Just like coconut oil it solidifies and liquefies depending on the temperature. It is highly concentrated so a little goes a long way. Never use it straight. Although it is a not an essential oil it is best to treat it as one. Simply diluted in another carrier oil and it is ready to use.
