altLavera's Orange Sea Buckthorn products are the perfect summer cocktail for your skin! Why is Sea Buckthorn such a power house in the skin care industry right now? When it comes to vitamin C, sea buckthorn has about 16 times as much of this nutrient as kiwis. Not only does vitamin C protect your skin from the ravages of free radicals, it also plays a role in collagen production. This fruit is also loaded with vitamin A & E. These three antioxidants combined help to fight those dreaded wrinkles and play an important role in shedding the dead surface skin cells.

Sea Buckthorn also contains EFA (essential fatty acids), these natural lubricants that help your skin maintain a natural balance.

Using the Sea Buckthorn products is a great way to kick your summer into high gear and maintain the perfect balance of collagen production and moisture retention. Lavera isn't the only one that stands behind Sea Buckthorn, even Dr. Oz LOVES his Sea Buckthorn. The incredibly high antioxidant properties of the sea buckthorn berry, along with its anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties and its ability to be immune-supportive, make this an outstanding oil to improve total body wellness.

The sea buckthorn berry, which is native to Europe and Asia has also been recently featured on the June 2nd segment of "The Dr. Oz Show," in which the health benefits of this berry were explored. Dr. Oz noted that Sea Buckthorn Oil can keep the skin young and beautiful as a moisturizer for the face and body. Sea buckthorn provids more protection and nutrition to the skin due to it's high levels of free fatty acids, phytosterol, phosphatide, vitamins E and A, and carotenoids. The free fatty acids is easily absorbed by the skin keeping it slightly acidic which helps to fight infection. Linoleic acid and linolenic acid promote repair of tissue damage. Phosphatide, hydrocarbon and phosphatide forms a protective film to prevent excessive moisture loss. Sitosterol improves mirco-circulation in the skin. Sea buckthorn softens and lubricates the skin and keep it smooth and fair.
