It has nearly 200 times the amount of vitamin C than carrots, and nearly 136 times more vitamin A than in tomatoes. Not to mention it provides 22 essential fatty acids, including Omegas 3, 6, 9 and the hard-to-find Omega 7. Great for healing, softening and strengthening skin. Seabuckthorn acts internally and externally on the three main acne culprits: immune system and endocrine (hormone) imbalances, and chronic inflammation. Seabuckthorn contains several potent natural anti-inflammatory agents (including quercetin and salycins), as well as several groups of micronutrients (including Omegas 3,6, 7 and 9) that work together to balance and regulate the body’s hormonal and immune systems. Topical Seabuckthorn applications soften, strengthen and reduce scarring, swelling and inflammation, allowing the skin to finally break the inflammatory cycle and heal itself. Seabuckthorn is also a mild analgesic, which discourages scratching and picking.
