The Natural Skin Revitalizer!
Sea buckthorns are shrubs native from parts of Europe & Asia that produce distinct small orange berries among very thorny dense, stiff branches. The berries are harvested by means of mechanical harvesting and then workers crush the berries to remove up to 95% of the leaves. Although edible & quite nutritious, they are also very sour in taste and therefore not very pleasant when eaten raw- unless mixed with another drink or sweetener substances such as grape juice.
When the berries are pressed, the juice separates in to 3 specific layers: the top layer is thick & a creamy orange consistency; the middle layer contains the high content of saturated & polyunsaturated fats; the bottom & 3rd layer is mostly sediment and also contains the juice. Sea buckthorn fruit is composed of Vitamins C,E, & K- in addition to amino acids & minerals. This means that it's a wonderful skin rejuvenator too, as it encourages cell turnover, increases blood flow, improves fine lines & wrinkles, & smooths the skin.
Over recent years, there has been some promising clinical research on the sea buckthorn and the fantastic benefits to offer; what they determined, is that it could have potential antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and healing effects for skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis!
