For the past 3 weeks, I have been putting something interesting on my face: sea buckthorn berries.
Huh?! Yeah, that’s what I said, too! I’d never heard of such a thing in my life before recently. There’s a reason for that: they are only grown in the Himalayas! This is and of itself, is interesting, but doesn’t mean that this is something really good for your skin. But here’s what science says about this special ingredient:
“Sea buckthorn is designed to provide advanced restorative skin care from within by addressing both internal and external aging factors. This ancient berry has a written history focusing on the aging issues of healthy and beauty of more than 28 centuries. such uses include treating and soothing damaged skin, healing wounds from ancient battles and part of a special nutrition program for Russian cosmonauts. Over 190 bioactive nutrients have been found in this fruit of the Himalayas. It contains Omega 7, which is very unique, and significant amounts are found in only two known plant sources: macadamia nuts and sea buckthorn berries. It helps neutralize free radicals and aids the production of collagen, a body function that begins to diminish with age. Studies have shown improvements in membrane function, skin and tissue hydration and enhanced elasticity.”
I have been using the Repair & Protect Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream from the company Sibu Beauty. I have been very impressed so far! I find it to be not at all greasy. I can apply my makeup just a few minutes after putting it on. But it goes the distance, leaving my very dry skin feeling hydrated all day long. Since I’m no spring chicken, anymore, I also like that this product has Omega & to help boost collagen production. Also, it smells wonderful (great citrus scent)!
This company is dedicated not only to providing products that work tremendously well to fight aging and promote healthy skin, but they are also a company committed to sustainability and fair trade practices. They work very hard to ensure that their harvesters and other workers are paid fair wages and use environmentally safe processing techniques, as well as healthy, safe working conditions. It seems to me that their goal is to have not only a positive impact on the beauty industry, but also on the areas in which their business resides. Love that!
Sibu Beauty gets two thumbs up from me for making products that really work and incorporating business practices that seek a greater good.
