Harvested from the berry (fruit and seed), Sea buckthorn oil is well-known for its vividly orangey-red hue that is rich in a range of medicinal substances, particularly beneficial fatty acids including omega-3, 6, 7 and 9, as well as plant sterols, vitamin E and carotenoids. Astonishingly, Sea buckthorn oil contains the highest amount of omega-7 of any plant in nature, trumping the amount found in familiar sources such as macadamia nuts by multi-fold! One thing to note though is that this rare fatty acid is exclusively found in the fruit.
Each of these active constituents provide their own benefits, however together they are responsible for Sea buckthorn oil’s therapeutic effects on mucous membranes in the skin and eyes.
Being in close contact with the outside environment, the eyes and skin are naturally more prone to dryness than any other part of the body. Therefore, it’s super important to maintain healthy hydration levels in the eyes and skin every day.
On top of this, the risk of experiencing dry eyes and skin may be enhanced if you’re of advanced age, wear contact lenses, are sensitive to dry and cold conditions, use digital devices for long periods of time or get quite a bit of sun exposure.
If this sounds like you, consider Herbs of Gold Sea Buckthorn Oil to relieve dry eyes and support skin hydration.
Herbs of Gold Sea Buckthorn Oil contains 100% pure, certified organic Omegia™ Sea buckthorn oil, a proprietary ingredient extracted from both the fruit and seed to provide a balance of omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 beneficial fatty acids. Since the therapeutic quality of Sea buckthorn oil can be easily affected by agricultural factors, using Omegia™ Sea buckthorn oil ensures batch-to-batch potency and consistency.
If you’re a plant-eater, you’ll also be delighted to know that Herbs of Gold Sea Buckthorn Oil is vegetarian and vegan-friendly.
To further optimise eye and skin hydration, don’t forget to:
- Drink plenty of water
- Take adequate breaks from digital device use
- Moisturise the skin daily with gentle creams or nourishing body oils

- Consume foods rich in beneficial fatty acids (oily fish, nuts and seeds)
