Hey ingredient-savvy readers! Are you crushing on sea buckthorn oil, too?

You’ve seen it pop up in some of your favorite serums and treatments—and with good reason. Sea buckthorn oil is loaded with vitamins and essential fatty acids. I burned through a small bottle of sea buckthorn oil this past winter, adding a few drops to other serums and oil blends. It was a lovely orange viscous oil with a musky smell, and it brightened my skin tone.
