BEST USE RECOMMENDATION:
Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil – Best used in consumable products or in very small concentrations for topical products. All of the berry’s Omega 7 is concentrated in the fruit oil, but must be consumed for it’s benefits.
Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil – Best used in topical products. Seed oil is packed with anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and various healing qualities. There is virtually no Omega 7 in seed oil.
Sea Buckthorn fruit/pulp oil (we refer to it as “fruit oil”) is best used in consumable products. It’s highly pigmented so it can temporarily stain the skin orange if used in high concentration topically. It will make creams, lotions, etc the same color in even low concentrations.
All of the Omega 7 in sea buckthorn is concentrated in the fruit oil, though it can’t be absorbed through the skin. Thus, we recommend the fruit oil for ingestible products only.
Some manufacturers do use the fruit oil in topical products because it’s about 1/2 the cost of sea buckthorn seed oil. It’s somewhat effective, but we recommend seed oil for any topical products.
Both of our sea buckthorn oils (fruit and seed) are USDA certified organic and food-grade.
