Sea buckthorn oil is made from the berries of the Sea Buckthorn plant. The extracted oil is a rich source of Omega-7 fatty acids that include palmitoleic acid and vaccenic acid as well as Omega3, Omega-6, Omega-7, Omega-9 fatty acids. Omega 7 SBA24 contains vitamin A (as beta-carotene) that contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, mucous membranes and vision. Omega-7 may benefit those who suffer with dry eyes, dry mouth and intimate dryness.

Sea buckthorn pulp oil may provide health benefits ranging from supporting your heart to protecting against diabetes, stomach ulcers and skin damage. Sea buckthorn can be applied to the skin or ingested. Sea Buckthorn Pulp Oil is obtained from the berries of sea buckthorn Hippophae rhamnoides L.), which belongs to the oleaster family (Elaeagnaceae).

Seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.), a natural herb, has been exploited extensively in Chinese, Tibetan and Mongolian traditional medicine for the treatment of gastric ulcer, circulatory disorders, hepatic injury, and neoplasia.

Ethanol extracts from seabuckthorn berries also provide protection against radiation-induced lethality in mice and have free-radical scavenging activity.

Modulation of the antioxidant defense system has been suggested as the basis for their radioprotective activity. seabuckthorn has also been reported to physically interact with cellular chromatin, stabilize it, and thus possibly protect the DNA from radiation-induced damage. Seabuckthorn seed oil protects mice against carbon tetrachloride–induced hepatotoxicity and high-fat diet–induced atherosclerosis.
