Sea buckthorn oil promotes wound healing and has an analgesic effect, which is why it is traditionally used in Russia in particular for skin damage caused by high-energy radiation (e.g. sunlight). It is also used for burns and for the treatment of necrotic wounds and stomach ulcers [2,3,4]. Internal applications of sea buckthorn oil reduce the cholesterol level in the blood and can thus prevent cardiovascular diseases. In folk medicine, the oil is used to relieve the symptoms of chronic stomach ulcers and other stomach diseases [5].*

The extract can be used for flavouring fruit and vegetable preparations, juices, other beverages and food. Sea buckthorn is also used in salad dressings.*

In food supplements, sea buckthorn extract is suitable for regulating fat metabolism in cases of deficiency of essential fatty acids due to its high content of unsaturated fatty acids. The alpha-linolenic acid contained in the extract also contributes to maintaining normal blood cholesterol concentrations [5].*

The unsaturated fatty acids contained in the extract increase the skin moisture. In addition, sea buckthorn oil has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. The extract is therefore particularly suitable for use in anti-aging products, skin care products, especially for dry and chapped skin, products against skin impurities and caring soaps. Sea buckthorn can also be used in sunscreen and after sun products. In addition, sea buckthorn oil strengthens the hair, which is why it is also used in shampoos, conditioners and other hair products that aim to restore damaged hair [5,6].*
