Sustainably sourced, organic, unrefined and virgin in origin, The Ordinary's 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil is positively bursting with incredible skin-nourishing powers. Derived from the pulp of the sea-buckthorn berry, the oil contains a high concentration of rare palmitoleic acid (omega 7) to nourish and protect skin unlike anything else. It also provides other richly moisturising fatty acids, such as palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, linolenic acid and linoleic acid, as well as antioxidants like tocopherol (Vitamin E), carotenoids and lycopene, all of which help to protect skin from free radical damage and maintain normal barrier function. Completely unrefined, the oil maintains its natural scent (which is an indication of purity rather than rancidity) and a natural orange-red hue. This does remain on skin - though it can be washed off - so The Ordinary recommends mixing a few drops with another treatment, ideally at night.
