Sea Buckthorn Traditional Use
A beauty revolution—13 centuries in the making
The first written documentation of sea buckthorn berry dates as early as 13 centuries ago in a Tibetan book of healing arts called Sibu Yi Dian. Nearly a third of its pages are devoted to the revered holy fruit, the sea buckthorn. Its medicinal uses for healing and overall health and beauty have long been legendary. And throughout history, in various parts of the world, the tart, brilliant orange berry has been used to rejuvenate, revitalize and restore, both inside and out.
Sea buckthorn from the Greeks to Genghis Khan
Genghis Khan powered his army and their horses on sea buckthorn for stamina and recovery from combat. The botanical name, Hippophae L. is derived from the Greek word “hippo,” meaning horse. Sea buckthorn was used to strengthen ancient Greek horses and restore their coats to a brilliant luster. And women throughout the ages have used sea buckthorn to protect them from the ravages of the sun and the elements. Founded on tradition and now based on extensive scientific research, sea buckthorn seed oil is one of the biggest functional whole food rediscoveries of the 21st century.
