Seabuckthorn contains natural anti-inflammatory substances—quercetin and salicin. Both clinical medicine and traditional Chinese medicine have evidence of using seabuckthorn oil to treat inflammation.
Seabuckthorn oil is considered a valuable topical agent for burns and wound healing, and its unique unsaturated fatty acids such as palmitoleic acid (omega-7), a component of the skin, and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA, omega-6), may impart regenerative and repairing properties to the skin. Sea buckthorn oil easily penetrates the epidermis, improves blood circulation, promotes oxygenation of the skin, and removes excess toxins from the body.
