Sea Buckthorn Oil - 4 oz
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 (golden/yellow - reddish and brown).
Aromatic Description: This oil has a very mild scent that is fresh with a slight sweetness.
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 (yellowish - reddish - brown) 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 up to 2
years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight).
Keep away from extreme cold and heat. Please refer to the Certificate of
Analysis for current Best Before Date.
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.
