Hippophae rhamnoides is a small shrub that grows at high altitudes in the northern Himalayan region, yielding fruits also called the sacred fruit of the Himalayas. The vegetable oil offered by Arc en Sels is extracted only from the seeds by CO2 extraction in order to preserve its precious assets and protect it from oxidation.
Known for millennia, it is particularly used in Central Asia, by Tibetan monks of the 8th century, renowned in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicines for providing health benefits.
Sea buckthorn oil is one of the only vegetable oils known to provide all four fatty acids omega-3, omega-6, omega-7 and omega-9. This very high richness in fatty acids gives it regulatory and regenerating properties. It is perfect for dull, dull skin that needs to regain comfort. Excellent anti-aging potential, its powerful antioxidants fight against free radical damage. These active ingredients stimulate the skin’s repair mechanisms and soothe irritated skin.

In spring, its richness in provitamin A gives a healthy glow effect and prepares the skin for tanning.
In summer it is essential, its content of omega-7 and omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce inflammation after UV exposure, protecting the skin from sun damage.
