“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished” - Lao Tzu
Why are there 80 ingredients in Vika's Essential's lab from all over the world? Raw, natural, and organic, why do we bother? Vika's "Star from afar" is a series of articles explaining "the why". What is the science behind some of our natural ingredients used for thousands of years by holistic and natural healers from all over our planet?
Today's star is "Sea Buckthorn Oil"
Sea Buckthorn berries are well known and have been used medicinally in Europe and China for thousands of years. Over the last century Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) oil has gained popularity in America.
Sea Buckthorn berries have remarkable wound-healing properties and enhance the formation of cell tissue. They are commonly used for treating skin damage as a result of burns, sunburns, scars, rosacea, and eczema. The unique and therapeutic properties are explained by the berry's abundance of 190 bioactive components, of which 106 occur in the oil! We use organic cold-pressed Sea Buckthorn oil as one of the main ingredients in my Sea Buckthorn Serum and "Prodigal Sun" Oil Blend.
Production of "Prodigal Sun" Serum in Vika's Essential's lab are happy days. The tantalizing and uplifting aroma from the fusion of Sea Buckthorn, Chamomile, Carrot Seed, Lavender, Tamanu nut, and Rose Hip seed oils is simply heavenly. Worth the price of admission!
"Prodigal Sun" is USDA Certified Organic and EWG Verified™. It is ideal as a daily morning moisturizer for normal to dry skin when paired with Vika's Propolis Myst to "lock in" moisture. I also recommend "Prodigal Sun" as a "before and after sun" oil blend.
Celebrate the sun and recharge your relationship with your skin!
