T7 is SIBU’s proprietary process for bringing you the highest sea buckthorn oil products available, harvested in the most environmentally sensitive and socially responsible ways.
Our “harvest to shelf” production begins with the Turkestanica Sea Berry, a subspecies harvested exclusively in the Himalayan Highlands at 12,000 feet above sea level. The little orange berry, used for over 13 centuries, is wild-crafted and sustainably harvested and is the world’s richest source of Omega-7.
Co-ops of Himalayan women are hired by SIBU and work following fair trade practices to gently hand-harvest the berries in the traditions of their ancestors. They are able to earn enough during the 4-6 week harvest to support their families through the harsh Himalayan winter.
“Super-Critical CO2 Extraction” is used exclusively to retain the nutrients found in the berry’s seed and fruit oils. The pulping process takes place in SIBU’s own vertically integrated facilities within just a few hours of the harvest.
A final “triple-test” quality controlsystem ensures that the sea berry pulp, fruit and seed oils maintain our optimum standards for Omega-7 potency and superior product quality. Three, independent premier testing laboratories are used to test for the key nutrients that make Sea Berry so valuable to health and beauty.
