Ingredients to Know: Sea Buckthorn and Collagen Production

WHAT SEA BUCKTHORN DOES

You may have seen Sea Buckthorn Oil in some skin care products. It is an ingredient worthy of your skincare routine. With over 200 nutrients to nourish the skin, it heals skin damage including scars, burns, and abrasions. It soothes eczema and treats acne.

But my favorite thing about Sea Buckthorn Oil is it treats aging skin and sun damaged skin as if it is an injury or wound that must be treated immediately. So it “calls the troops” together, making repairing cells “rescue” the aging skin by working overtime building as much collagen as possible.

That makes Sea Buckthorn a great ingredient to pair with a Vitamin C serum, as C provides the building blocks for collagen while Sea Buckthorn tells the skin to make collagen.

Sea Buckthorn is found in some pricey skin care products, but also some more moderately priced ones. It is gentle to the skin and gives a boost to any Vitamin C topical it is paired with.

How to Get the Benefits of Sea Buckthorn Oil on a Budget

A cost-effective way to get the benefits of Sea Buckthorn Oil is to buy a pure Sea Buckthorn Oil and add just a few drops of it to a basic regular eye and face creams or serums. Make sure to massage the cream in well for proper absorption. I have had success with just Sea Buckthorn Oil mixed into a Cerave face lotion. Then once that dries, apply Vitamin C serum on top of that mixture.
