Since my very first exposure to Seabuckthorn over 20 years ago I have been drinking the juice, eating the berries, applying the oils and taking the capsules. I am a Seabuckthorn poster child if there ever was one. From the time they were developed I have used only our skincare products. I cleanse with the […]

Quite the opposite in fact. Well, not only […]

Every winter I’ve suffered from cracked skin on my fingertips and dried out cuticles. Even though I’ve regularly used hand-lotions, nothing has helped for long. New cracks appeared and I’d resort to wrapping a band aid around my cracked and rapidly infected cuticles and resort to using antibiotic ointment. It was a painful misery that […]

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 […]

Fifty percent of us are allergic to something we put on our skin. I wish I’d known that a few years ago. A friend of mine gave me a big bottle of hand cream, a really expensive one from an upscale spa. I used it occasionally at first – I fortunately don’t have to moisturise […]

I love the smell of lip balm in the winter! Seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) is a perfect fit for lips.
