As a result of an article on seabuckthorn and rosacea in FIRST for Women magazine (see the recent blog post SBT Seabuckthorn International in ‘First for Women’ magazine for more information), there has been a spike in interest in our rosacea treatment packages.

The article mentions Michele Guy, a long-time customer of ours who has had great success using our products, including the SBT Seabuckthorn Berry Cream included in our full rosacea programme.

We’re thrilled that Ms Guy’s rosacea is successfully controlled using our products, and we’re thrilled that she was able to share her story with the world! However the article gave a somewhat inaccurate impression of how we treat rosacea using seabuckthorn-based products.

Our rosacea treatment packages are carefully balanced to treat the unique issues faced by rosacea sufferers from the inside out. In our full rosacea package, we include our berry cream to be used once the rosacea symptoms are under control, but not before!

Rosacea is a symptom in part of an over-active immune system, chronic inflammation, and extreme sensitivity, and in addition to the important internal application of tea and supplements, the topical application of our natural seabuckthorn soap and oils is what we have found to be the best at relieving symptoms without causing further irritation. Complex preparations, including even our simple creams, can further stimulate inflammatory and immune system responses, counteracting the positive effects of the seabuckthorn.

Once the acute rosacea symptoms are under control and the normal immune and inflammatory responses are restored, our berry cream, along with other appropriate skin preparations, can be introduced.

    I saw the article in First magazine also and decided to try SeaBuckThorn for myself. After reading your comment, I agree that the article is misleading but the topical products are as effective as the article claims. I developed Rosacea about the same time 18 years ago that I came down with multiple autoimmune problems, primarily dry eye/dry mouth (Sjogren’s) and vitiligo. They classify my autoimmune however as mixed-connective tissue. You are correct when you say that autoimmunce diseases create a great deal of sensitivity from the inside out and vice-versa – fragrances, creams, drugs, the sun, the heat, the wind. The list is endless. So anyway. I’m 63 and I’ll try anything that someone suggests but I don’t necessarily believe everything that I read or hear until I give it a chance myself. The soap and oil are definitely controlling the rosacea outbreaks, although they are slightly caustic for my skin. I have to use Nivea cream over the oil. I even found that the oil is healing my cracked fingertips –the thumbs in particular crack in the dry winter weather. I didn’t expect to see that happen. I’m going to buy some oil for my brother-in-law who is a barber and has to deal with the most painful looking cracked fingers I have ever seen.
    I am going to read more about SeaBuckThorn products to try to find out about the internal treatment you are talking about – the “cure.” I found that putting a drop of the oil on my tongue, even though it is the same ingredient as the capsule (from what I have read), is much too harsh for my dry mouth condition. After even only a week of using a product, one can ususally figure these things out pretty quickly.
    Thanks for having a blog to exchange information.

  4. Dear Ms Peters:
    Thank you so very much for taking the time to drop by and give such thoughtful and excellent feedback! It is very useful to us to hear from customers regarding what works for them and what doesn’t. I’m thrilled to hear that the topical application of seabuckthorn oil is helping your rosacea! I’m forwarding your feedback to the rest of the team – please keep in touch!
    I also wanted to add that I use seabuckthorn seed oil cut with 50% olive oil as a balm for my very dried out and cracked hands (which I get from juicing a lot of carrots – I don’t know if the carrots are very astringent or if it’s tiny soil particles). I also use pure seabuckthorn oil on cracks I get on the bottoms of my feet and toe hangnails. It not only makes them heal faster, but it takes away the pain.
