The keystone of our formula for Skintensive Body Butter, the citrusy-tasting Sea Buckthorn berry has been used for generations in sweet drinks and jams among Eastern European cultures. This bright orange berry, which grows in parts of Eastern Europe and Siberia, has also long been hailed for its amazing antioxidant properties and nutrient richness. It offers one of the widest ranges of nutrients from a single source, including antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C, and E, minerals, and omega fatty acids - all of which aid in normalizing eczema-affected skin. In fact, Sea Buckthorn berries have 15 times more Vitamin C than oranges or lemons.
Powerful enough to fight eczema and comfortable enough for daily use, the intense hydration of coconut oil and the eczema-repairing properties of the Eastern European Sea Buckthorn Berry provide your skin with the hydration and repair that it needs. Our Skintensive Body Butter is also enriched with ceramides, which can repair your epidermal barrier and allow your skin to seal in and retain moisture and hydration. Go ahead give it a try, you won't regret it!
