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 moisturizing fatty acids, such as Palmitic acid, Stearic acid, Oleic Acid and Linolenic 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.
Suitable for all skin types including acne prone skin and sensitive skin
