Argousier fruit oil, aka: sea buckthorn oil, is a true superfood for your skin and one of our favourite pure plant ingredients to formulate with.
A shrub that grows throughout Canada, sea buckthorn is originally from Europe and Asia. This miracle plant produces orange berries that contain an impressive vitamin content and phytochemicals proven to relieve inflammation both internally and externally.
Various clinical studies and research findings exist to support the noticeable benefits, sea buckthorn can have when applied topically to the skin.
Including this one that details its effects in the treatment of psoriasis and this study that discusses how the oil helped the skin's structure and improved collagen to fight the signs of aging in women between 50-70.*
We absolutely LOVE Argousier fruit oil and below we've highlighted the top reasons you should too!
1. Brightens and rejuvenates dull, lackluster skin, revealing a more even skin tone.
2. Combats the signs of aging and helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Its fatty acid composition acts as a powerful moisturizer and hydrator working to heal dry skin.
4. Naturally anti-inflammatory, helping to calm redness, skin flare ups, sunburns, and scarring.
5. Helps to reduce and minimize acne breakouts.
An incredibly versatile fruit oil, Argousier can be used alone or in serums, eye treatments, or oil blends such as in the case of our new Summer Oil, the Healing Oil+ 5% Argousier Fruit Oil, an antioxidant packed, glow enhancing blend of therapeutic pure plant-ingredients that offer an all-natural, healthy glow for your skin.
We recommend warming a few pumps of oil in the palm of your hand first before applying to body and face. For added therapeutic benefits, breathe in the natural aroma before applying. Allow the oil to absorb into the skin before applying
