Sea Berry Therapy (formerly SIBU in Canada) uses the Sea Buckthorn plant as its powerhouse ingredient for rejuvenating and healing the skin.
As a beauty editor who spends a lot of time testing out products and reading about ingredients and how they work and how they affect the body, it’s become no surprise that over the last few years there’s a big
So, whenever I discover a new natural product to test, I’m on board. While “natural” and “organic” beauty and skincare products have traditionally had a bad rap for not really working well (read more hear about natural deodorants), top brands are now delivering a range of skin care that are actually delivering results.
This is the case with American natural skincare brand Sea Berry Therapy (Formerly SIBU). What the brand stands behind is exactly in their name (which is why they’ve remarketed their name from SIBU to Sea Berry Therapy in Canada). It’s all about the “Sea Berry,” A.K.A Sea Buckthorn.
What is the Sea Berry (Sea Buckthorn plant)?
The Sea Berry is from the Sea Buckthorn plant and is a super fruit that contains over 60 antioxidants and omega nutrients that provides healing and anti-aging properties to the skin.
It is the main ingredient in Sea Berry Therapy products. The company sources their Sea Berry plants from the Himalayas, which are harvested and processed on the same day in order to maintain their integrity and nutritive properties.
According to Sea Berry Therapy, “the sea buckthorn berry seeds are processed into oil for our soap and skin care products, while the pulp becomes puree for our liquid supplements. With diligence and care, the puree is placed directly into airtight, UV safe containers to protect and seal in the maximum nutrient potential. And after a chilly trip across the ocean in refrigerated shipping containers, the sea buckthorn puree arrives stateside for formulation, blending, purification and testing; quality control from stem to bottle for products with the greatest nutritive potential.”
Due to the fact that the Sea Berry plant and it’s harvested oil has more than 10x the amount of Vitamin C than an orange and has an “unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9, and the world’s richest source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7 (a fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails), it’s becoming known as a plant-based powerhouse for skincare.
