What is Sea Buckthorn?

Sea Buckthorn, scientifically known as Hippophae rhamnoides, is a small, orange berry that grows on the Sea Buckthorn bush. This bush is found in Europe and Asia, particularly in colder, mountainous regions. Although the berry is the most commonly used part of the plant in skincare, the leaves and seeds of the Sea Buckthorn plant also boast significant health benefits.

History of Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn has a rich history that spans thousands of years. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over a millennium and was also popular among the ancient Greeks. The Greeks named the plant 'Hippophae', meaning 'shiny horse', after observing that horses fed with Sea Buckthorn leaves developed shinier coats.

During the Middle Ages, Sea Buckthorn was considered a remedy for various ailments, and in more recent times, it was used during World War II by soldiers to combat vitamin deficiencies.
