The Amazing Properties of Seaberry Oil: + 4 Reasons to Use This Skin Superfood
Profile: Unrefined, cold-pressed. Contrary to what its name suggests, Seaberry (a.k.a Seabuckthorn) oil does not come from the sea. It’s actually derived from the fruit or seeds of the Seabuckthorn shrub. Our oil is not Certified Organic, however the farmer does not routinely spray the bushes. We have been advised that spraying only occurs if there is an outbreak that threatens the plant. In this rare case, the farmer is very careful not to spray the fruit. Rather than import Seaberry oil based on its organic merit, we choose to support local businesses first.
Origin: Near Okotoks, Alberta (local supplier).
