SIBU Daytime Nourishing Face Cream: Oily to Dry Skin

“I usually don’t use face creams because they are too heavy for my skin….”

“I normally don’t like wearing moisturizers in the day….”

“I don’t use a daytime moisturizer because of my oily skin….”

These are just a few of the reasons we hear why some people don’t like using a daytime facial moisturizer.

We understand.

But keep reading, those testimonials don’t end there. Here’s the full story:

“I usually don’t try face creams because they are too heavy for my skin….but this one is more like a moisturizing serum. It is lightweight, pleasant and clean feeling. It feels soothing once applied, effortless to absorb and smells fresh/fruity. On par with other, way more expensive face lotions I’ve tried.”- Lola

“I normally don’t really like wearing moisturizers in the day….but this feels really good & isn’t making me break out (I’m very prone to acne)”- Binny

“I don’t use a daytime moisturizer because of my oily skin… but the Nourishing Facial Cream seems to actually help my skin not be as oily! Love the light feel.”- Alex

What? It’s actually helping to reduce oily skin? Yes!

Our Nourishing Face Cream is rich in both sea buckthorn seed oil and fruit oil, and although it may seem counter-intuitive, adding oils to your skin can help signal your sebaceous glands (the glands that produce the oil on our skin) to stop creating these excess oils.

What if I don’t have oily skin?

Maybe your problem is the exact opposite. You’ll use a daytime cream only find that mere hours later your skin feels dry and dull. Where did the moisture go?!

It can be difficult finding a daytime moisturizer that, one, doesn’t leave a thick greasy residue on your skin, two, is still nourishing enough that your skin won’t go back to that dry, cracked feeling as the day goes on, and third, a daytime cream that increases your skin’s moisture without leaving your face shining like a disco ball.
Our Nourishing Facial Cream is specially formulated to be light, yet rich and rejuvenating.

Made with only natural ingredients like shea butter, meadowfoam and of course premium sea buckthorn, help to create a daytime facial cream to help moisturize, protect and repair skin for feel good, happy skin.

Omega 7 Pure: A Wholefood for Your Whole Body

What can SIBU Omega 7 Pure do for you? Well, just about everything!

Okay, maybe not everything, but it does help in a variety of different ways.

We live in a world where so many foods we eat are causing sickness and disease instead of preventing it.

The problem isn’t that healthy foods aren’t out there, it’s finding the right ones that’s tough.

Many of the foods we find in our local supermarket have been so heavily processed that our body receives very little, if any, nutritional benefit.

Imagine your car running low on fuel, low on oil, low on coolant, low on transmission fluid, low on everything your car needs to run properly.

Imagine your car operating like this every day. Eventually, there’s going to be some damage.

Well our bodies work in similar ways.

If we’re not feeding our body what it needs to run at optimal levels, healthy functions begin to break down. And unless you’ve already taken action to improve your health and the foods you eat, this is how all of our bodies are operating day in and day out.

If you are already eating healthy and making positive changes to your diet, then BIG KUDOS to you! You’re well on the road to reaching your health goal.

But even with healthy diets and proper foods, we find that our bodies are still lacking many necessary nutrients to live vibrant, healthy lives.

This is why wholefoods play a vital role in our efforts to increase our overall health.

What about multi-vitamin supplements?

I’d say it’s better than taking nothing at all but they do have a major disadvantage. Most vitamin supplements are manmade and combined with other so-called “healthy” ingredients to create a once-a-day multi-vitamin.

The problem with these vitamins is that because they’re manmade, they’re foreign to our body.

Our body doesn’t know how to properly use the nutrients to their highest potential. Nutrients that don’t get used don’t produce any positive results.

Lost nutrients = lost money, and more importantly, NO significant health benefits.

This is where wholefoods come to the rescue.

Wholefoods are highly nutritious foods found in nature, for example, the sea buckthorn berry.

Wholefoods are easily recognized by our bodies and are better able to break down, absorb, and effectively use all the nutrients for the most benefit.

Remember the famous (and very true) statement by Hippocrates, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”.

A Wholefood For You- Sibu 7 Pure

Sibu 7 Pure is 100% sea buckthorn berry puree, nothing else. By using only wild-grown & hand harvested sea buckthorn, you can rest assured you’re getting pure wholefood nutrition from Mother Nature herself. Remember, not all sea buckthorn is created equal – click here to learn more

Why is Sibu 7 Pure a good wholefood option?

  • Sea buckthorn contains over 190 naturally occurring bio-active compounds for your whole body so you feel active and energized.
  • Wholefood nutrition helps strengthen your immune system- I like to say, “I don’t catch colds, colds catch me!”
  • Provides vegan based omega support including 3, 6, 9, and 7 minus the fishy oil smell.
  • Like omega 3 which helps lower bad cholesterol, the omega 7 found in Sibu Pure goes one step further & helps raise our good cholesterol levels so your heart stays strong & healthy.
  • Not to mention all the extra nourishment for you hair, skin, and nails. It’s beauty in a bottle!

I’ll leave you with this…. Eat foods as close to nature as possible. If you can’t find it in nature, you probably don’t need it.

3 Home Remedies for Sensitive Skin: Tips To Soothe

If you have a sensitive skin then you know what it’s like to deal with skin that easily flares up, and there are many products you have to avoid to prevent redness and itchiness; these highly frustrating symptoms go hand in hand with sensitive skin.

If you use commercial products from your local drugstore, you may want to take a closer look at the label, as most commercial skin care products are teeming with foreign sounding ingredients. These unpronounceable ingredients are usually harmful chemicals and fillers added to products to improve the consistency or extend the life of a product, but they are a sensitive complexion’s worst nightmare.

Even if your skin is not sensitive, you should want to know exactly what you are applying to your precious skin, as more than 60% of everything you apply to your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream. With a sensitive skin, however, what’s going on inside your body is usually reflected on the outside when your skin turns red and feels tender and hot to the touch.

Fortunately, there are a few ways you can soothe your sensitive skin and prevent future flare ups. Keep reading to enjoy calmer and happier skin today!

1. Use Natural Products That Reduce Inflammation

Natural products, free from chemicals, are what every skin needs, especially sensitive skin.

Our products, here at SIBU, are ideal for sensitive skinned individuals as our key ingredient, Sea Berry, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that not only prevent a flare up, but soothe your skin too if another product has caused an issue for you.

Powerful antioxidant properties means that while our products soothe and heal, they fight free radicals and provide deep nourishment to leave your skin youthful, glowing and perfectly hydrated. Be to check out our 3-Step Clear Skin System – natural skin care for acne prone/sensitive skin

2. Use Lukewarm Water

Again, this is important for all skin types as hot water strips the skin of oils needed to keep your skin hydrated and protected. If your skin is sensitive though, it’s extra important to maintain balanced oil levels to prevent flare ups and irritation. Always use lukewarm to cool water when washing your face, and rinse with cold water for your final rinse to close your pores and tighten your skin.

3. Don’t Over Exfoliate

While exfoliation is important for clear and healthy skin, it only needs to be done once a week, or even once every 2 weeks if your skin is super sensitive. Harsh scrubs can actually scratch the skin and create microscopic tears in the skin, which is the absolute last thing you need if your skin is already sensitive and easily irritated.

Don’t let sensitive skin rule your life, switch to healthier products and follow our tips and your skin will stay happy, soothed and beautiful! Let us know if you have any more tips you’d like to share in the comments!

Sea Buckthorn for Vaginal Dryness

A clinical study conducted by Finnish firm, Aromtech, shows promising results for women combating vaginal dryness.

<<Click here for the original article>>

We’ve known that sea berry (sea buckthorn) can help greatly replenish moisture in our skin, organ & stomach linings, and even helps to hydrate dry eyes, but, recent studies have shown great promise in helping to alleviate vaginal dryness.

Aromtech states that vaginal dryness affects 40% of postmenopausal women, and can even impact women who are breastfeeding or using contraceptive pills.

It’s a topic that isn’t too heavily discussed, for obvious reasons. But, just because we don’t talk about it, doesn’t mean the problem doesn’t exist.

While there are many options out there, sea buckthorn is the only one that provides a key nutrient needed for increased moisture from within, omega 7.
Omega 7 is a key omega that our body needs to help produce more, and maintain more of our body’s natural hydration. It’s effective nutritional support from the inside-out.

Imagine… problem solved by simply taking 2 capsules per day. NO prescriptions. No Creams. No side effects. (other than the added bonus of healthy skin & hair)

Just 2 capsules per day. That’s it.

6 Remedies for Dry Skin And Acne


*Video credit – iamvanessae YouTube channel

Everyone has experienced dry, acne problem skin at some point in their lives. It’s embarrassing and unsightly, and in some cases it can lead to further infection and scarring. Here are the top six home remedies to decrease your risk of dry skin and acne.

1. Drink plenty of water

Yes, you’ve heard it before, but by increasing your water intake, you’ll assist your body in flushing out the toxins that you come into contact with every day. You’ll also hydrate your skin, which will help decrease the risk of acne.

2. Try a honey mask

Honey has natural antibiotic properties – that’s a way of saying it’s nature’s tetracycline. Before you go to the doctor to try a prescription antibiotic, try a natural honey mask. Mix 3 parts honey with 1 part lemon juice after gently cleansing your face, and leave on your skin until dry. Rinse with warm water. (don’t forget the Sea Berry Seed Oil)

3. Increase your fruit and veggie intake

Again, you’ve heard it before. Balancing your diet to include fresh fruits and vegetables will ensure that you’re getting all the vitamins essential for healthy skin. Vitamin A, Vitamin D and Vitamin C are just three of these.

4. Try a Purifying Clay Mask

Clay masks are excellent for drawing impurities out of the pores, and controlling excess sebum in the skin, however some of them can be quite harsh and drying. Our Purifying Clay Mask is gentle enough for all skin, thanks to the addition of our key ingredient; Sea Berry, which has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.

5. Sea Berry Seed oil

Sea berry seed oil is a miracle worker for skin conditions. It’s been proven to help clear up rosacea, acne, dermatitis and eczema. It may be difficult to find in stores, so try a product like SIBU’s Sea Berry Seed Oil.

6. Establish a daily routine

It sounds obvious, but establishing a habit of good skin care is critical to the prevention of acne. Wash your face in the morning using a mild cleanser, then apply a toner and moisturizer. Don’t be afraid to moisturize during the day. Before bed, apply a mask, or at least be sure to remove all makeup from your face. You’ll moisturize overnight with a product like SIBU’s Rejuvenating Night Cream and be fresh faced to begin again in the morning.

4 All Natural Adult Eczema Treatment Tips

Eczema is a very frustrating condition also known as atopic dermatitis. It presents itself as red, inflamed patches of skin that may contain fluid-filled bumps, and it is very itchy. Scratching, however, simply opens the skin, making it susceptible to infection, and it only provides temporary relief.

Eczema is not contagious, and may be a hereditary condition. Some people outgrow this inflammatory condition as they get older, whereas for others it sticks around. Eczema may be short lived from a reaction to a new detergent or soap, or exposure to poison ivy or nickel, or it may be chronic, staying for years without you ever really knowing what the cause is.

While there is no definite cure, there are definitely a few wonderful and all natural ways you can manage eczema, so you can bring a semblance of normalcy to your daily life.

Keep reading for ways you can enjoy some soothing relief almost instantly!

1. Keep Your Skin Moisturized, But Avoid Chemicals

Eczema sufferers lack important essential oils in their skin, and this dry skin simply makes the eczema worse. It’s very important with this condition to keep the skin hydrated at all times. Many drugstore products, however, contain harsh chemicals and drying ingredients that will irritate the skin further.

For a simple 2 step cleansing and moisturizing method, we highly recommend our Polishing Facial Cleanser followed by our Nourishing Face Cream for the face, or our Moisturizing Body Cream for the body. Soothing ingredients including aloe and shea butter provide emollient properties to lock moisture into the skin, while healing Sea Berry fights inflammation, helping to minimize that terrible itch.

2. Take A Supplement That Will Reduce Inflammation In The Body

Eczema may not always be a result of something that touches the skin. If your eczema is chronic, it may stem from inflammation inside the body. The best way to resolve this is to naturally reduce inflammation in the body through the use of a daily supplement that will fight inflammation and provide internal nutrients

Our Omega-7 Blend contains Omega 3, 6 and 9 to hydrate from the inside out, as well as the elusive Omega 7 to fight inflammation and nourish you from within

3. Use Lukewarm Water On Your Skin

Hot water strips the skin of essential oils, and with an already dry skin, this is the last thing you want to do. Always rinse your face, as well as your body, with lukewarm water to maintain your skin’s natural oils. The cooler water will also help to soothe the skin, and prevent it from flaring up. Also be sure to gently pat your skin dry, rather than rub it aggressively. Treat it with the utmost care and patience.

4. Try An All Natural Detergent

This is a big point, because we all wear clothes every day, and if it’s your detergent causing the issues, then no amount of healthy eating or using the right skin care products is going to help. Look for a gentle and chemical free detergent such as this one, and take note of how your skin feels.

Treating an inflammatory condition takes time and patience, but you will start to see results if you stick to it, don’t give up!

Female Dryness – Michelle’s Success Story

Vaginal dryness is a common problem that just doesn’t seem to be discussed – and understandably so.

Clinical studies conducted by Finnish firm, Aromtech, have shown promising results for women combating vaginal dryness. (Click here if you missed our previous post on sea buckthorn and vaginal dryness)

While SIBU is geared toward helping problematic skin, we’re consistently getting positive feedback from women all over the world who have discovered a secret benefit by taking SIBU Omega 7 Support capsules.

Michelle struggled with vaginal dryness…

Here’s her story and how SIBU Omega-7 Supplements worked for her (and her boyfriend)

We’ll let Michelle tell you all about it… “I can’t rave enough about this product! One day while in my local nutrition shop, a sales woman saw me looking at the omega oils and asked me if had tried the omega-7 sea buckthorn oil… I hadn’t. I’m always all about the hair and skin products – but she said something else that really piqued my interest.

She mentioned it helps with vaginal dryness. As a young woman, you wouldn’t think I’d have any issues with that, but sadly I do!

Since my early/mid 20’s I’ve struggled with it, and have used lubricants – but sometimes it’s just embarrassing and some boyfriends haven’t understood or dealt with it well – I guess thinking they’re  doing something wrong. I’m aware it could be a mental thing, but hell… this stuff really works!

I started using the New Chapter omega-7 gel tabs at first, but switched to SIBU after the first bottle and I believe it works much better! I take it daily… and have not used lubricant once since I started taking it consistently in February!

It’s truly liberating. I feel so much more confident, and sexy. I no longer have to stress about “am I ready to go.” My body was just not in the same place as my mind. I’m sure the stress was worsening the issue… so it’s nice to relieve that fear.

Sometimes I am truly shocked at how much moisture I’ve got going on now! So is my boyfriend, haha 🙂 We are BOTH happy customers. Supplements obviously don’t work for everyone, but it works for me 🙂 I’m 31 now, and I finally feel like a normal healthy woman.”

What Is The Function Of Collagen For My Skin’s Health?

Whether catching the tail end of Dr.Oz or reading about it in the latest Marie Claire, chances are you’ve already heard about this thing called “collagen.”

Even though you recognize the word, and may even associate it with sagging skin (you’d be right!), do you really know what collagen is… how to get more of it, and why exactly you need it for your skin?

Let’s delve a bit deeper into this skin care mystery shall we?

What is collagen and what does it do?

Collagen is made up of strings of protein called amino acids which helps to keep the skin youthful, muscles and bones strong, and digestive system working in good shape. When it comes to amounts of this protein we have inside us, collagen is at it’s the highest when we are born and throughout our childhood, but naturally decreases as we age.

It’s this decrease in collagen that is responsible for visible signs of aging such as sagging skin, wrinkles, and even weakened bones.

Keep in mind however that even though we naturally lose collagen as the years go by, other lifestyle factors such as a diet high in sugar, extended sun exposure, and smoking, are all contributors to a decrease in as well.

So how do we increase the collagen in our bodies (namely our skin) and start to reverse this degenerative process? It’s a lot easier than you may think, and doesn’t take a visit to the fountain of youth…

How do I increase the collagen in my skin?

When we lose collagen in our skin, there are visible signs other than wrinkles.

Try this experiment: pinch the skin on your hand and see how quickly it bounces back… if it bounces back quickly, your collagen levels are strong. If it takes longer for your skin to bounce back, that may be a sign that you should start to increase the collagen in your skin right away.

However, it’s never too early to get ahead of it!

Boosting collagen production can be done in a few ways, namely: through diet and food, through supplements, through injections, and through applying topical collagen.

Since supplement recommendations and injections should come from your Doctor, we will take a look at diet and topical collagen production today.

Increasing collagen through diet

In order to get the most out of our diets when it comes to sources of collagen, the best foods to eat are those which are high in protein. This includes beef (bone broth), chicken (breast), fish, and even egg shell membranes!

Other plant based sources of collagen which will give you glowing skin include: spinach, kale, berries, garlic.


Why applying collagen topically as we age is important

Eating a healthy diet does benefit in many ways, however as our skin ages, the long strings of amino acids break down to form short strings, known as peptides.

When peptides are present in the body, this means that collagen has been lost and they in turn signal the body to produce more. However, as we age and lose more collagen, we lose those peptides, which is why applying them topically to the skin will signal your body to start producing more.

This then will start to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and aging.

Luckily, it’s not hard to find good skincare products that have natural peptides built into them!

If you’re looking for an all in one solution, SIBU’s Hydrating Facial Serum is infused with a combination of skin healthy vitamins, Hyaluronic acid and Sea Berry (Sea Buckthorn) extract,  which fortifies the skin against the aging process and helps repair damage at a cellular level.
