Sea buckthorn oils have powerful healing properties when it comes to radiation damage. Russian cosmonauts included Seabuckthorn in their diets to help counteract radiation exposure from the sun while in space. Those experiencing fallout from the Chernobyl disaster were given sea buckthorn oils to help protect the thyroid from radiation damage. Even now, several years after the Fukishima disaster, people are still turning to Seabuckthorn as a means of staying healthy while radiation levels are still on the rise.
There are several documented studies on the benefits of sea buckthorn oils for radiation and sun damage. SBT Seabuckthorn Amazing Omega 7 Fruit Oil contains many well-known sun protecting compounds including Beta Carotene, Lycopene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Palmitoleic Acid (Omega 7). It also contains 41 Carotenoids, Omega Fatty Acids, and full complex Vitamin E.
While sun exposure can help with absorption of Vitamin D, other levels deplete when exposed to the sun’s rays. When taken internally, SBT Seabuckthorn Fruit Oil augments your body’s natural sun protection. When applied topically, SBT Fruit Oil calms and cools sun burned skin.
Due to the carotenoid content it will temporarily leave your skin an orange color and can stain fabrics. For this reason, for topical application, we recommend adding a few drops to your favourite cream, sun screen (great to counteract the white cast of natural sunscreens), or mixed with our SBT Seabuckthorn Seed Oil to dilute the colour.
