10 Sea Buckthorn Oil Benefits for Your Best Skin Ever
May 06, 20222 min read
Have you heard of sea buckthorn oil? Despite its name, this antioxidant-rich oil doesn’t actually come from the sea. Instead, sea buckthorn oil comes from the berries of a flowering tree, and it’s packed with nourishing Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
Here are a few ways that sea buckthorn oil can help you glow:
Helps with uneven skin tone. If you’ve got some dark spots that you’d prefer to see fade, sea buckthorn might be the answer. This oil is tried and true for fading hyperpigmentation and acne scars, and can improve your skin’s overall texture, too.
Helps your skin stay hydrated. Sea buckthorn is excellent at preventing moisture from seeping out of your skin, so it stays plump, hydrated and nourished. (But you should still be guzzling your water!)
Can help fight acne. Some studies indicate that sea buckthorn has antibacterial properties, which means it can help combat the icky bacteria that causes acne.
Makes wrinkles a thing of the past. Sea Buckthorn is packed with antioxidants, so it can help prevent signs of aging. Not only that, but it’s rich in vitamins and fatty acids that can help to plump up the skin and make wrinkles less visible.
Can stop oily skin in its tracks. Sea buckthorn oil contains a special ingredient called linolic acid. You can find linolic acid in the sebum that your body naturally produces, so it’s an excellent ingredient for balancing out the oil production in your skin.
Speeds up skin regeneration. If you want that youthful look (and who doesn’t!) it’s all about amping up the speed at which your skin cells regenerate. This is because regeneration can slow as we age, causing a dull and tired appearance. Thankfully, sea buckthorn contains lipids that can rev up skin cell regeneration.
Your softest skin ever. Those same lipids that help with regenerating skin cells also moisturize and improve the elasticity of your skin, helping it to look and feel soft to the touch.
Helps with eczema. Some studies have shown that while it doesn’t work as well as prescribed medication, sea buckthorn can reduce eczema rashes without the side effects that medication sometimes causes.
Promotes burn and wound healing. Sea buckthorn contains palmitoleic acid, which can help to speed up healing of any small abrasions or burns. (That said, we always recommend seeing a doctor if you’ve hurt yourself.)
Protects from the sun. Repeat after us: sunscreen is critical! But even the best sunscreen can benefit from a little boost, and that’s where sea buckthorn comes in. Its antioxidants can help protect you against damage caused by UV exposure.
And there you have it! Ten great reasons to pick up a skincare product with sea buckthorn oil today. Here at Wild Ice, we love sea buckthorn so much that we make it a star ingredient in our facial glow serum , which has nearly 150 five-star reviews.

The Cyro-C serum is by far the best vitamin C serum I have ever used. I love skincare so much and you can tell this product is made with care. The smell is amazing and I get complimented almost daily about how my face looks glowing since I started using. Mila was so kind and knowledgeable. I will definitely be rebuying once I run out!
I have oily/combination skin, so I pump/mix both and then apply, otherwise it’s too oily and doesn’t absorb quickly. This works so well! It makes your skin smell great even hours after application. I only wish this trick for oily skin was on the instructions of bottle. I didn’t realize until I saw it on one of their insta stories. Great product otherwise!
I love the 4-step facial products. The routine is easy and simple and the results are amazing. This is one of the best product lines I have used on my face, and I can really see a difference in my skin. I first purchased two of the products at Market Days in Tallahassee. When I finished the products, I went back to what I was using previously. It was not long until I decided that Wild Ice is the perfect product line for me and my dry skin. I am hooked.
I recently found these products and amazing creator at our local farmers market and all I can say is WOW! I was instantly sold from the moment I applied the cold-kept cream to my skin. I'll absolutely be going back for more from her skincare line and watching allll of her informative videos on their social media page
This is absolute gold in a bottle that smells like fresh oranges. My skin is sensitive and I do have rosacea and it drinks Cryo-C up! My complexion has greatly improved and am so happy I made the splurge. This, along with the toner, are new repeat buys for my skin routine. I look forward to my skin routine AM & PM just because it feels and smells amazing!
This has improved my skin and is very refreshing. I have sensitive skin and rosacea and this has not caused any breakouts. I use this with Cryo-C and absolutely love it! Will definitely be a repeat buy to my skin routine.
I recently purchased the complete skin care package and I absolutely love it! I’m having a hard time deciding which product is my favorite. The cleanser makes my skin so soft and helps with my overall skin appearance, The serum brightens my skin, one of the best I’ve tried and the moisturizer! It has improved every single issue I’ve been concerned with. Love love love the entire collection! Thank you so much!
I just started with this to see how my skin took it before I invested in any more products. I have used it consistently for several weeks and WOW. My skin literally feels more healthy and looks it, too! And my husband is always telling me I smell good right after I put it on. :)
I found this product at the Rosemary Beach farmers market. It is amazing! Have been using it for 2 weeks and my skin feels wonderful. I have rosacea and use others products for it, but this adds to the regimen and soathes your face. Love that it is cold (if you put it in fridge) which is so calming in the summer!
