Description

The robust deep red berries which produce our Organic Sea Buckthorn oil are the most nutritious and unusual of indigenous fruits, found primarily in Europe and parts of Asia, predominantly in mountainous regions. Our berries are grown sustainably in Germany from which this oil is extracted in its virgin form, using a pure mechanical separation procedure to retain the oil's natural composition and potency. Our unrefined 100% pure Sea Buckthorn oil is of an orange hue and has a beautiful fruity scent.

Sea Buckthorn oil is renowned for its Palmitoleic acid (omega 7), Provitamin A (carotenoids, in particular beta carotene) and vitamins E and K. This oil contains a high concentration of the incredibly rare Palmitoleic acid which is a fatty acid that naturally occurs in the sebum of the skin. This fatty acid promotes nourishment, protection of the skin and is known to support skin cells.

Taken internally, it is known provide many benefits for the body. Omega 7 is also known for supporting weight management.

Containing an abundance of fatty acids, as well as phytonutrient Lycopene which all help to protect the skin from free radicals and help maintain the skin's healthy epidermal barrier. Sea Buckthorn oil is also known to be beneficial for sun burn and skin rejuvenation due to its antioxidant properties. This oil is also rich in B vitamins and is the only plant source to contain omega's 3, 6, 7 and 9.

Sea Buckthorn's high omega 7 fatty acid (Palmitoleic) content also imparts a natural scent, which is completely natural and not an indication of rancidity. This is typical of an unrefined and high quality Sea Buckthorn oil. This oil is highly absorbable yet naturally very pigmented with a bright orange hue, due to its high lycopene and carotenoid content. The colour will stay on the skin until it is washed off, or you can apply to give the skin a natural tanned colour. It is best to use a small amount, or even mix with other carrier oils, such as sweet almond, to dilute the hue on the skin.

Fushi Fresh Pressed ® Sea Buckthorn oil is important for:

• Palmitoleic acid (Omega 7) known to be beneficial for skin cell regeneration.
• Palmitoleic acid known for benefits for the digestive, cardiovascular systems and blood sugar balance.
• Dry skin conditions, scars, skin healing and sunburn relief.
• Contains powerful phytonutrients, antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties.
• Natural orange hue of Sea Buckthorn can be used for a natural tanning oil to give the skin a natural tanned tone.

This is a non-standardised, unrefined and natural oil. Each batch varies and displays a set of unique characteristics. Sediment or natural particles of the ingredients may be visible in the oil. This is simply down to our oils never being refined, deodorized or filtered, and does not imply the oil is faulty.

Further Information

Fushi, meaning ‘eternal life’, began with the combined cultural heritage of Rannesh and Ria and from Ayurvedic family recipes handed down by their grandparents who blended oils and infused herbs to create pure, natural remedies.

In our London Workshop, we still take inspiration from both the old and new and are passionate about delivering pure, honest and carefully created products.

We are honest and transparent about the way we do things. As we grow we continue to build even stronger relationships with our global growers, we source responsibly and care for the environment. We have a conscience and we listen to it.

We are a hardworking, compassionate team, doing all that we can in helping our customers experience and enjoy our products. We have one shared passion. We all care deeply about the planet.

We hand-blend the purest, fresh pressed oils and fresh ground herbs in our London workshop, sourcing our ingredients from this season’s harvest, meaning everything we make is less than three months old.

About Our Oils:

  • 100% pure, organic, cold-pressed and unrefined.
  • Unique characteristics every time! Because they are freshly pressed from this season’s harvest.
  • The seeds, kernels and nuts are naturally sun or air dried.
  • Free  from preservatives or other nasties.

About Our Herbs:

  • Biodynamically and naturally air-dried.
  • Freshly ground by hand in our London workshop.
  • Encapsulated by hand within 3 days to ensure freshness.
  • Our supplements contain only 100% powdered pure herb and nothing else.
  • The same freshly ground herbs are used for our unique triple-infuse herbal oils that we create for our skin, hair and body care.

How To Use

• For internal and external use. Take 1-2 teaspoons daily with food or as directed by a healthcare professional. Can also be drizzled over a salad or blended into a smoothie. Massage externally into affected area daily.

• Care should be taken when used externally as the oil can easily stain fabric.

• The oil usually already starts to crystallise out below 20⁰ C and is usually of a firm consistency below 15⁰ C. Due to the complex composition of the oil, discolorations can occur but these are completely reversible even when heated. This does not affect the dietary and physiological quality of the oil.
