Seabuck Wonders was the first company to introduce sea buckthorn oil to US consumers back in 1993. At that time, their primary focus was supplements. However, with nearly 20 years of experience, they have gained extensive knowledge on the health benefits this amazing super fruit can offer. Not only from the over 200 research studies done on sea buckthorn by scientists worldwide, but also more importantly, from the feedback and results of their customers.
One of the major benefits is that sea buckthorn is great for skin health - not only when used internally, but also topically. Personal care companies have started to introduce a variety of skin care products containing sea buckthorn, some are better than others. One critical flaw with most of the sea buckthorn personal care products currently on the market is the actual content level of sea buckthorn oil. Due to the high cost of the oil, only a very small amount of it is usually used, which creates minimal results and benefits to the end user. Also, most of the personal care companies treat sea buckthorn just as another trendy ingredient to add to their product offering. They seldom truly understand that the right amount and the right combination of sea buckthorn oils make all the difference.
This is the driving force behind their decision to make their own version of skin care products - products that maximize what sea buckthorn can really do for people's skin and beauty. The first secret was to identify the optimal concentration of sea buckthorn oil ... but this is where Seabuck Wonders' expertise comes into play. They source their own sea buckthorn berries directly from Tibet without any middle-man, effectively controlling the cost while still making sure that their sea buckthorn is certified organic, 100% pure and the best quality available. This allows them to add as much sea buckthorn oil as we can to the product while maintaining reasonable pricing for the consumer.
The second secret was determining the right combination of multiple sea buckthorn oils for maximum results. There are two common varieties of of sea buckthorn oils: berry oil and seed oil. While both offer benefits for the skin, their nutritional profiles are very different. Seed oil contain high levels of vitamin E, omega 3, 6, 9 and other powerful antioxidants which all benefit the skin; however the rare omega-7, the one nutrient that makes sea buckthorn so special and believed to be the one that contributes the most to its amazing skin benefits, is mostly found in the berry oil. So the right amount of seed oil and berry oil is the key to creating maximum results. It is important to point out that this sea buckthorn berry oil contains the highest levels of omega-7 on the market. For over 3 years, they have gone through countless trials and errors to find the right balance. They believe they have found it. The result - extremely rich products containing a high concentration of sea buckthorn oil while maintaining a non-greasy feel. Seabuck Wonders' personal care products are easy to apply and quick to be absorbed into the skin. The first thing you'll notice when using these products is that it has a bright orange color. This is due to the high level of sea buckthorn oil and the beta-carotene (an antioxidant) found in the berry oil. Don't worry, it won't stain your skin, it will only make your skin healthier and more beautiful. That's their story and they're sticking to it!
Unlike many Sea buckthorn products in the marketplace, Seabuck Wonders believes quality AND quantity are both important. Because Sea Buckthorn is expensive, many manufacturers provide skin care products with little to no sea buckthorn to minimize their costs. At Seabuck Wonders, they focus on maximizing the benefits of their products, and therefore, provide a high concentration of sea buckthorn oil in all of their personal care products. It's a simple formula: more sea buckthorn = more health and beauty benefits. And you can even see the difference. Because these skin care products contain a higher dose of sea buckthorn, you'll notice a bright, yellow-orange glow - a mirror reflection of the sea buckthorn berry's natural vibrant color. This intense concentration of sea buckthorn makes Seabuck Wonders the superior product line for skin healing and beauty enhancement.
About Sea Buckthorn
Many things are found in mother nature that provide excellent life-giving nutrients, but something like sea buckthorn - which is packed with many varieties of nourishing and nurturing elements - is nothing short of a miracle. It is becoming one of the brightest stars in pharmaceutical and supplement industries with at least 190 nutrients including all known vitamins.
More than 2 billion years old, sea buckthorn is one of the earliest inhabitants on earth. The fine qualities are the result of its ability to withstand the changes and upheavals on this planet. Its botanical name, Hippohgae rhamnoides L, came from an ancient Greek legend: After a war, warriors let their sick and wounded horses loose. But they came back bursting with energy and health. It was traced to tree shrubs on which the horses fed upon and the trees began to be known as "trees that make horses shining." The effective use is recorded in history in ancient China and Central Asia in which it is said to have maintained excellent health and vigor of both men and horses. In modern times, it goes to space as a special food, keeping astronauts well adapted to a complex and hectic space environment.
Seabuckthorn oil stands out in many medical traditions as a tonic including Chinese, Tibetan, Mongolian medicines, in which it was described as "God Sent Medicine," "liquid gold," "life oil," etc. Chinese pharmacopeia classifies sea buckthorn oils as both food and medicine.
Cardiotonic, stomachic, dermatropic, antioxidant, anti-radiation, anti-constipation, healthy cholesterol maintaining, blood vessel softening, blood fat reducing, pro-blood circulation and pro-natural healing, sea buckthorn oil has an extensive range of uses both internal and external on cellular levels. It has a wide application in cerebral-cardiovascular, liver, gastrointestinal, respiratory, urinary, gynecological, immunological, dermatological health, etc, and it is extremely good for sub-health conditions. Daily use may help keep you young and healthy inside and out.
Free fatty acids, carbohydrates, phytosterol, phosphatide, vitamins E & A, carotenoids in sea buckthorn oil are organically combined together providing more protection and nutrition to the skin. The free fatty acids are easily absorbed by the skin, which helps keep slightly acidic, and inhibits unhealthy microbes. Linoleic acid (Omega 6), palmitoleic acid (Omega 7) and linolenic acid (Omega 3) promote healing of tissue damage and the hydrocarbon prevents excessive moisture loss of the skin, soften and lubricates the skin and keep it smooth and fair. Sitosterol improves microcirculation in the skin. Phosphatide forms a protective film to prevent moisture loss and keep invaders at bay, and acts both as a moisture regulator and an antioxidant against wrinkles. The miracle properties of stimulation to tissue regeneration and epithelial natural healing but without leaving scars, make sea buckthorn oil a most welcome remedy for burns, cuts, frostbite, bed sores, wounds, etc.

Highest Omega-7 Content
The special benefits Omega-7 fatty acids have to offer the body are found in the greatest concentration from Seabuck Wonder's sea buckthorn oils. Their heavily scrutinized process of sourcing only the finest sea buckthorn available from the pristine Himalayan mountain region of Tibet has resulted in a tested minimum of 30-35% Omega-7 content, the highest currently available in the sea buckthorn market. These sea buckthorn oils are also fully certified USDA organic, the most trusted organic certification in America.
What is the rare Omega-7?
Omega-7, also known as Palmitoleic acid, is a monounsaturated fatty acid found in some animal, vegetable and marine oils. It is a rather rare omega fatty acid that only recently has gained global exposure for its benefits and unique qualities. Omega-7 is present in all body tissues and is more particularly in skin and fat tissue. Sea buckthorn berries offer the most potent botanical source of Omega-7 currently known and are garnering wide-spread attention as a "Miracle Berry" with many health advantages.
Omega-7 Is Special
Omega-7 fatty acid promotes healthy and moisturized skin, hair and nails at a cellular level. Their tissue actually contains Omega-7 and its restoration, whether topical or internally, nourishes and balances these tissues for a youthful and shiny glow. Omega-7 fatty acid supports a healthy gastrointestinal and digestive system from start to finish. This fatty acid coats and nurtures mucous membranes starting in the oral cavity all the way through the end of the digestive tract, alleviating discomfort and balancing digestive functions.
Omega-7 fatty acids supports a proper inflammation-response throughout the body and reinforce the body's natural lubrication system. According to an Australian scientific study of Omega-7 conducted in the mid 90s, this fatty acid may even help manage weight and balance fat stores.
What is sea buckthorn?
The seabuckthorns (Hipphophae L.) are deciduous shrubs in the genus Hippophae, family Elaeagnaceae. It is also referred to as sea buckthorn, seabuckthorn, sandthorn, seaberry, sacred fruit, or liquid gold when referring to its oil and juice. It is by far the most widespread of the species in the genus, with a range extending from the Atlantic coasts of Europe right across to northwestern China. The English name of seabuckthorn may have to do with the fact that in Western Europe, it is largely confined to sea coasts where salt spray off the sea prevents other larger plants from out-competing it, but in central Asia, it is more widespread in dry semi-desert sites where other plants cannot survive the dry conditions. In central Europe and Asia is also occurs as a subalpine shrub above tree lined mountains, and other sunny areas such as river banks. They are tolerant of salt in the air and soil, but demand full sunlight for good growth and do not tolerate shady conditions near larger trees. They typically occur in dry, sandy areas and can thrive in such hard oil as arsenic sands where few other plants can even survive.
More than 90 percent or about 1.5 million hectares of the world's sea buckthorn wild forest or plantations can be found in Tibet, China where the plant is utilized for soil and water conservation purposes, including prevention of oil erosion, sand drift, and holding of precious water. While you read about the wonderfully wide variety of health nutrients it provides to humans, please be aware that it also has a strong ability of fixing nitrogen by its roots, for use of other inhabitants of Mother Earth.
What is the difference between sea buckthorn berry oil and sea buckthorn seed oil?
As research on seabuckthorn intensifies, more and more nutrients and health factors will be found. So far, more than 200 of them have been identified and the composition ratio is very similar to the human body with near 1:1 ratio between Omega 3 and Omega 6. It is also reported that seabuckthorn contains all known vitamins beside fatty acids, carotenoids, phospholipids, minerals, both micro and macro. There are distributed in its seed, fruits, leaves and flowers in different proportions and quantity.
Which sea buckthorn product is best for me?
While no adverse effect is found with seabuckthorn oils and rich literature exist of its effective use in many medical traditions, the detailed biological functions of its ingredients have not been fully explored and understood. There may be many more uses in the near future in the food and pharmaceutical industries. There are many overlapping areas so far as the useful functions are concerned in which differences may be thin and insignificant such as in the case of cardiovascular, digestive, live, lung and skin health, and for infection and inflammation response and natural healing.
The berry oil is more characterized with high content of the rare Omega 7 and if you have serious cell and membrane issues and peptic and duodenal concerns, you might like to go with the berry oil. If you want a powerful antioxidant and something for anti-radiation, regeneration of cells, you may choose the seed oil which has high content of Omega-3. But if you want something for daily health maintenance, or are in sub-health condition, you might like to use a blend product, a formulation with both berry and seed oils providing a much wider spectrum of health benefiting factors.
Can my kids take sea buckthorn?
As it is said that no adverse effect of the oil has been found, there is no reason why not. In China it is listed both as a food and medicine. If you are in doubt or your kid is in certain conditions and taking precautions, please consult your health professional.
Can I give sea buckthorn to my pets?
