Dr E.G., at the top of our More Testimonials page, has a very strong opinion of how to treat rosacea, and the role of the Demodex mite! … For me (my complexion is pretty good, by the way) the oils tone the skin and seem to diminish excess oily secretions.  So if it is true […]

The light, delicate oil heals rather than just coating, and it is gentler than many preparations on the thin, sensitive skin of the mouth. Also, seabuckthorn oil is not only fine but actually indicated for […]

At SBT Seabuckthorn International, we have a wonderful range of hair care products. I use the shampoo and conditioner; I haven’t actually tried the shampoo bar (my hair is heavily colour treated), but a lot of people I know swear by it. But hair care is a bit of a misnomer.

In Zhangjiakou, Hebei, China, 200km northwest of Beijing, the desert has been encroaching for dozens of years. Up to 20% of China’s territory is being threatened by desertification, particularly in the areas around windswept Inner Mongolia.
