Our NEW Sea Buckthorn Body Butter and why we chose the ingredients we did











Of course, there are many body butters on the market so we created one that is unique and in keeping with our standards. Our Sea Buckthorn Body Butter has only three main ingredients, organic unrefined Shea Butter, our own organic Sea Buckthorn oil and organic Calendula oil. We added a bit of arrowroot powder and a slight amount of sweet orange essential oil.  

Why Shea butter?  It contains:

  • linoleic, palmitic, stearic, and oleic fatty acids, ingredients that balance oils on your skin
  • vitamins A, E, and F, antioxidant vitamins that promote circulation and healthy skin cell growth
  • triglycerides, the fatty part of the shea nut that nourishes and conditions your skin
  • cetyl esters, the waxy part of the shea nut butter that conditions skin and locks in moisture

Why Sea Buckthorn oil?  It contains:

  • fatty acids including palmitoleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid,  which increases hydration without feeling heavy.

  • It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, both alpha- and beta-carotene, vitamins B1, B2, and B6, vitamin E, fatty acids and flavonoids, Omega 3, 9, (help hydrate) and Omega 6 and rarest Omega 7 rejuvenate and strengthen the skin, restoring radiation/sun damage
  • about 190 bioactive compounds including quercetin

Why Calendula oil?  It contains:

  •  five essential compounds: Oleanolic acid, lupeol, quercetin, alpha amyrin, and beta amyrin, soothing your skin and reducing discomfort.

Why arrowroot powder? 

  • to cut the oily texture, making it light and fluffy and helping the body butter absorb more quickly
  • Arrowroot contains many beneficial minerals and vitamins such as zinc, iron, potassium, and Vitamin B6, and is known to provide relief to skin irritations including rashes, acne, skin sores, and rashes

Why Sweet Orange essential oil?
