Botanical Name: Hippophae rhamnoides.

Plant Part: Fruit.

Origin: China.

Extraction Method: CO2 Extraction.

Color/ Consistency: Deep reddish orange to dark brown liquid. Solid at cold temperatures and clumpy at room temperature because of its unique constituent profile. We recommend placing the bottle in a very gently heated hot-water bath, and changing the water frequently until it is back to a more liquid state, but do not overheat! Be sure to shake well before use.

Description: Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae Rhamnoides) is a spiny shrub or tree with bright red or yellow berries native to Europe and the northern regions of Asia. These berries are said to be the single highest vegetal source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, unsaturated fatty acids and essential amino acids, along with beta-carotene, which gives them their bright color. This quality oil is extracted from the fruit using the CO2 extraction method.

Aromatic Description: This oil has a strong musky smell that is characteristic of Sea Buckthorn.

Common Uses: Aromatherapists use this oil in small amounts (10%) in their creams and oils. Sea Buckthorn is a fantastic ingredient in massage blends, an aromatherapy cream, facial serums, and in all types of high-end facial products. Please note that if not well diluted, Sea Buckthorn Oil may stain the skin and sheets.

Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, leaving a slight oily feeling on the skin.

Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of 2 years with proper storage conditions before opening. Keep away from extreme cold and heat.

Cautions: None Known, but can stain sheets and skin; do not use over 5% - 10% to enrich creams and lotions. Care should be taken in any formulation to avoid overheating this product due to possibility of polymerization. This oil is very sensitive to air; it should be decanted in a sterile dark glass bottle with an increasingly  smaller airspace as it is being used and its volume decreases.

Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

I love this oil as a base for my facial night serum. It does impart a slight orange hue, but it blends in nicely and gives kind of a sun-kissed glow. It does not clog pores and seems to be great for acne prone skin as well as mature skin.

This oil is usually amazing. In the past, I have loved it in my lotions. This particular batch, however, is ORANGE. It has ruined two batches of lotion because the color stains the skin with even with a very minimal amount added to the batch. The color makes this oil unusable for topical skin applications in any dilution.

This oil is just ok, I've use others that were less refined, thicker and had a sweeter aroma.

I make a super rich moisturizer using this carrier oil. This oil has a very intense orange colour and therefore may not be suitable if you don't want whatever you are making to be orange!

Love it ! Very good quality, lovely modest smell and makes wonders on the skin. One of the best prices on the market, thats how I actually discovered NewDirections- I needed this oil with a reasonable price and thats the place. Sea Buckthorn is a superfruit and greatly praised all over the world throughout the centuries. CO2 extraction gives this oil the purest imaginable form leaving all the valuable nutrients present. Be aware- it stains! If you use it plenty enough in your body lotions you could get the healthiest tan look ;) I wish NDA would also offer the oil extracted from the seeds which is colorless and highly valuable, as well.

Yes it is staining so be careful to add a bit at a time, my understanding is that a little goes a long way. I use this in my wrinkle oils and anything formulated for cracked or damaged skin. It doesn't take much before it colors your product. My boyfriend said it looked yummy LOL. I told him this is not edible. I wonder if I should put that on my labels in big bold letters.

I purchased this oil based upon the description above. I have purchased the "pulp extracted" Sea Buckthorn oil before and LOVED IT due to it's wonderful effects on my skin and for the fact I could use it straight from the bottle 100% pure! I purchased this "CO2 extracted" oil based on much information I found out concerning the extraction method. That being said just please note that this oil's consistancy is fairly thick like maple syrup. I did not find it conducive to use as a "carrier oil" at all. In fact I had to dilute it into another carrier oil just so I could use it on my face. The description is correct in that it is darker (does turn the skin orangey temporarily) and the odor is stronger than the pulp extracted oil. From now on I will only purchase the pulp extracted version. I love the Sea Buckthorn oil too much not to continue to use it. I have had people remark on my skin and how great it looks since using it. I, personally, have noticed a diminishing of lines and wrinkles since starting to use this product 6 months ago! I love it! Just be forewarned that this version IS very thick and I would personally recommend the pulp extraction if that would bother you. I gave this four stars only for the viscosity.

This oil is absolutely great! I have been applying this oil (mixed with Meadowfoam seed oil) directly on my face before my daily moisturizer or night cream for about a month or so. It works wonder for my face. My complexion has become brighter and more even. Good stuff for skin care!

Sea Buckthorn lives up to its description. After my mother spent 6 weeks in the hospital after heart valve surgery, her face was dry and leathery. I made a cosmetic cream using several butters from New Directions and a generous dose of Sea Buckthorn. The ravishes of hospital stay and medications were erased from her face shortly after using this precious oil. I also use this and keep middle age at bay. 54 and no lines and wrinkles!

Actually in Russia this oil is sold in drugstores as a medicine (non-prescription of course) - it's been long know for it's amazing healing effects so I always keep a bottle in the fridge. It's actually have a wide variety of uses, from topical to internal usage.
