    Hi there is seabuckthorn safe for endometriosis when taken for acne?
    Kind regards kristina

      Kristina,

      Sea buckthorn is generally safe for any purposes since it’s just a natural fruit oil. If you have serious concerns always consult with your physician! As far as Endometriosis and sea buckthorn … we found this testimonial online:

      Endometriosis Testimonial
      For years I endured painful cramps due to Endometriosis. I tried the Seabuckthorn gel oil capsules and after one month found a huge relief from the painful cramps. I have tried many other herbal remedies for this condition, but I found that the Seabuckthorn was most affordable, and has helped my pain better than anything I have tried before. I also noticed an increase in energy and overall well being. I highly recommend trying this!!

    I have suffer from Subtype 2 Rosacea for over a year now. I can say I have tried everything to get rid of this aside from lazer .My dermatologist prescribed topical medications and an oral pill however I learned I was allergic to the medication. Since then I went the “all natural route” and have adopted a Paleo diet, am currently seeing a Naturopath doing live blood cell analysis and colonics to help figure out how to heal / cure this. I have tried all natural cream and cleanser with healing properties in it and still no extreme results. I still suffer from Pustules and the redness gets worse around my menstrual cycle. I am desperate fro help. Do you think this will do the trick?

    • admin says:

      Dear Amanda,

      I know how hard it can be to deal with a chronic skin condition but don’t give up hope! Please read our article about rosacea here.

      Not sure if you’ve ever looked at this forum but it’s a big community of rosacea sufferers. In this article some members discuss their results with seabuckthorn and it all looks very positive.

      Sea buckthorn is known to increase moisture, reduce inflammation, moderate the immune system and it even has an anti-microbial effect! It does seem very promising that sea buckthorn could really help with your rosacea. If nothing else, it seems like it’s definitely worth a shot before trying lazer treatment.

      I hope that helps and please check back in to let us know how it works for you.

      Good Luck Amanda!

    Hi Iam 33.and have been suffering from acne for a now..due to mold in the house were I worked what can I do to get rid of it

      Hello,

      Sea buckthorn berry oil is great for helping with acne because of it’s anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It can strengthen skin cell walls and regulate oil production in the skin. The best approach would be to take sea buckthorn oil internally, as well as using it externally.You will get faster results if you do so. Find a sea buckthorn based soap to wash your face with, then dry skin and apply oil to blemishes. Just a warning, the oil from sea buckthorn berries is a dark orange. It will not stain your skin but it will stain fabric! After applying the oil, let it soak into the skin for at least 15 minutes, then wash it off. By letting it sit on the skin, the oils will absorb. You will probably want to do this as a nightly treatment because of the time it takes and because of the bright orange oil on your skin! For best results, also consider cutting down on inflammatory or irritating foods in your diet for a while, drink lots of water and switch to all natural skin care products. For more information on how sea buckthorn effects the skin check out this article and this article to help navigate the purchasing process of sea buckthorn oils.

      Thanks for your comment and good luck!

    I just purchased the sea buckthorn berry oil for clearing up mild, annoying acne. I’m having trouble figuring out how much I should out on my face and for how long I should leave it there. I don’t want to overdo it and possibly make it worse, so please let me know how often I should be applying it and for how long I should leave it on my face! Thanks!

    • admin says:

      Hello,

      Great question! A little of the oil goes a long way so just start with a drop or two on your face. Massage it into the skin and let it sit for at least 20 minutes to really let the goodness from the oil soak in. You can leave it on your skin for as long as you want but most people will wash it off with gentle soap and water after an hour or so. You may have also noticed that your berry oil is a dark orange color. Don’t worry, it won’t stain your skin. It will stain fabric so don’t sleep with the oil on your face and while doing treatments don’t wear light colored fabric.

      Sea buckthorn oil has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It really helps to smooth out scarring on the skin as well. Lots of people love using it for acne.

      Hope that helps!

    Hello,
    Can a pregnant woman also use the oil?
    Must the oil and bar soap be used simultaneously?
    I mean, can you substitute with an aloe-Vera content bar?

    • admin says:

      Hello there,

      We always recommend talking to your doctor first! Sea buckthorn can effect your hormones so make sure you talk to a doctor or an herbalist before you start. If you are trying to eliminate acne, we suggest using sea buckthorn oils internally as well as externally. Pure sea buckthorn seed oil will soak right into your skin and is great for healing scars. Fruit oil is great for scarring as well but doesn’t tend to soak in the same way that the seed oil does.

      You definitely can use another kind of bar, there’s no harm in that. Just make sure that the bar or products you use are noncomedogenic (meaning not pore clogging). There are lists of online so you can look up what ingredients are pore clogging and which aren’t.

      Hope that helps!

  11. Garry says:

    Hello I have deep acne scars. Can sea buckthorn help me? Thx for ur response.

    • admin says:

      Hello,

      Sea buckthorn is wonderful for helping heal scar tissue. Both the fruit oil and the seed oil are great for supporting cell health. The fruit oil in particular is great for aiding with softening scar tissue because it is so high in Omega 7. You can apply the oils directly to your skin as a treatment.

      If you get a high quality, undiluted version of the fruit oil, it will be a dark orange color. You can use it as an at home treatment where to let the oil soak into your skin for an extended period of time then washing it off. You will need to wash it off so it doesn’t stain fabrics when you get in bed to sleep at night.

      Alternately, you can add the fruit oil to lotions or other body care products in small amounts to mitigate the dark color of the oil. There are also lots of sea buckthorn skin care products on the market these days which are very helpful with softening scars. Just be careful to read the ingredients panel before you start using them. Many products use Sea buckthorn in the product name but have low amounts of sea buckthorn. Sometimes, lots of filler oils which may not have the same effect for helping with your scars.

      It may also help to take a supplement internally as that will help with the overall softening of your skin.

      Thanks for your question!

    I am 48 years old, I just recently found out that I have Rosacea. I have never had any type of face acne, etc. I was totally shocked when I started breaking out. I went to the dermatologist and they told me I have rosacea. They prescribed Finacea and I had a bad allergic reaction.

      Hello there,

      First of all, lets talk about your face wash. We suggest to stop using your current facial cleanser to try a more natural product. Try a sea buckthorn face wash if you can find one. We looked up your brand of face wash and it has a lot of unnecessary chemicals that could be irritating your skin.

      You may find that there are many sea buckthorn cleansers and lotions on the market. You may want to try them all right away but take it slow. Start with a simple face soap and see how your skin reacts for a few weeks before starting your oil on the skin treatment. You may find that just switching to a more natural soap may help your condition improve right away. Once your skin is used to your new facial soap, start the oil treatment. Sea buckthorn fruit oil is dark orange but is great as a skin treatment. Watch out for staining your fabrics! The seed oil is another great one for the skin and is a lighter yellow color.

      You can start taking capsules right away.

      The cause of Rosacea is not known but it is thought to be an inflammatory condition. That means in addition to using sea buckthorn (which does have anti-inflammatory properties) products you should also investigate your diet and lifestyle. Look into anti-inflammatory diets and try to cut out foods that can cause inflammation.

      All in all, just try to take it slow. See how your skin reacts to different changes in diet and products. Read more about rosacea and experiment with different options to find the perfect treatment for you. Everyone is different!

      Thanks for your question!

    Hi there I’ve had acne for 12 years now. It seems like nothing works. I want to try this oil but not sure if this is to be used alone or mixed with another type of oil. I also would like to know what type of oil can be used as an everyday moisturizer that can be used under makeup. Thank you.

    • admin says:

      Hello,

      The oil that is really great for skin ailments is the fruit oil because of it’s Omega 7 content. If you get a good brand that is made of pure, high quality fruit oil, it will be dark orange. It works great as a treatment on it’s own but wouldn’t be suitable to wear underneath makeup everyday. A great solution would be to simply take a few drops of the oil and add it to your existing facial cream. There are also plenty of facial creams that have sea buckthorn oil in them already which will not leave your skin orange. If you choose to buy a sea buckthorn infused facial cream, make sure it has high levels of sea buckthorn and natural ingredients. Serums work wonders too because they deliver healing nutrients deep into the skin. For people who suffer from chronic acne or have sensitive skin, it is crucial to use natural and gentle skin care products. Read your labels!

      Acne can be caused by many factors and trying to treat the issue internally should be part of your action plan. You should also try to take the oil internally, either in a capsule or as many companies sell it, in dropper bottles. For internal use, you should try a product that is a mix of both the seed oil and fruit oil. The seed oil is high in Omega 3 which is best known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties. That could help your acne tremendously.

      Overall, you should attempt to treat our acne internally as well as externally for best results.

      Good luck!

      No, most people say that sea buckthorn oils are very soothing to the skin. What kind of oil was it, for example, fruit or seed?

    Hi, I am a little be confused about using SB BERRY oil or SB SEED oil.
    I am 41y old and prone to acne, due to hormonal imbalance, thyroid problem. Due to a lot of benefits of SB oil for hormonal imbalance, aging, acne and etc, I would like to try to use SB oil internally and externally.
    You advise to use SB BERRY oil for acne, but SB BERRY oil, compare to SB SEED oil, is more richer with OMEGA-9, than OMEGA-3 and OMEGA-6. HERBAL specialists do not recommend for people with hormonal acne to use OMEGA-9 in high dose. Which I agree. I have checked on myself.
    I use on my face only oils with high level of OMEGA-6 and low level of Omega-9. It works very well for me.

    What is the best to use for hormonal acne SB FRUIT oil or SB SEED oil?

    I have seen in the shop “SB BERRY and SEED OIL” with OMEGA-9 twice more than OMEGA-3 and 6. I am a little be scared to use that stuff, as do not want to worst my
    skin.
    Please give advice.

    • admin says:

      Hello,

      Both the fruit oil and the seed oil have Omega 9 in addition to the other constituents of the oil, that is true. We suggest the fruit oil because most people react quite well to the Omega 7 because of it’s cell nurturing properties. On the other hand, there are plenty of benefits to be offered by the seed oil as well. Sea buckthorn seed oil does have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties so it actually works wonders for the skin as well, just in a different way. If you know that Omega 9 does not work well with your skin, we would definitely suggest just sticking with the seed oil.

      It’s hard to say exactly what kind of oil will work for you because we are all so different. Many folks say that the berry oil works wonderfully for their skin ailments, while others prefer the seed oil. There is no one-size-fits-all answer. Luckily, it seems that you know your skin type very well and have been trying different solutions.

      You are absolutely correct, the fruit oil typically does have more Omega 9 than the seed oil. Truthfully, the amount of Omega 9 is only slightly higher in the fruit oil than the seed (usually around 5-10% more) so there isn’t that big of a difference. If you were to take either one, the actual amount of Omega 9 in a full serving would likely be less than one gram (.3 grams or around 300 milligrams) at it’s highest amount. That is not an especially high number and mostly likely not enough to cause concern. However, if you know that a combination of 6 & a lower dose of 9 works well for your skin type, just stick with a seed oil only product.

      Hope that helps, thanks for your question!

  18. No doubt that sea buckthorn oil has lots of beneficial features but I don’t know that, it can clear acne also. Thanks for sharing the informative post.

  19. Petra says:

    Hello,

    I am applying a sea buckthorn oil every morning and night for about 2 weeks now but it seems that acne got much worst than before. Is it some kind of stage before it gets better or would you advise me to stop using it?
    Thank you.

    • admin says:

      Hi there,

      Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your oil regimen. There are so many factors that could be causing the issues you are having, it might not just be the sea buckthorn that is causing your problem. To be on the safe side, we would suggest to stop using the oil externally, so that you can figure out what is causing the irritation.

      If you were already suffering from acne before you started the SBT treatments, that means you are most likely prone to sensitivity. The theory of using oil on the skin is not just that it rehydrates, it also dissolves other oils as well as dirt within the skin. It could be possible that you have dissolved some of the harder sebum caps on your skin and that your pores are simply draining. Some acne sufferers are so sensitive that they are at higher risk for infection. It could be that you are unclogging your pores, which is a good thing, but you could be experiencing an infection as well. This especially common for those with acne who are doing an oil cleanse (which is when you forego the use of soap all together).

      Another factor to consider is what kind of oil are you using on your skin. Is it pure sea buckthorn? Many companies offer oil blends that have SBT mixed with other kinds of oils. Make sure you are using a pure SBT oil.

      Is it a blend of fruit and seed oil, or is just the fruit or just the seed oil? The fruit oil has Omega 7, so it is typically considered the best for skin ailments. The seed oil has Omegas 3,6,9 which are great for skin as well, but is less known for it. Although the Omega 7 from the fruit oil is specifically great for skin, it’s not as “dry” of an oil as the seed oil is. “Dry” oils tend to be absorbed into the skin faster than wetter oils. So, it could be that you are using the fruit oil twice a day and it’s not absorbing fast enough, causing more irritation than before. It could be that that two applications a day is simply too much for your skin to handle at this time, regardless of the oil type.

      Yet another factor to look into is the soap or other products you are currently using in conjunction with the SBT oil treatment. Have you changed the cleanser as well as adding the SBT oils to your regimen? This could cause irritation by changing too many factors at once. What kind of ingredients does your current cleanser have? Is it full of lots of complex chemicals or is it more natural? What other products are you using in conjunction with your oil regimen?

      Yes, for now it would probably be wise for you to stop using the oil regimen in the same way that you are doing now. However, you may want to start taking the oil internally as a dietary supplement (this depends on what kind of product you have of course-make sure you can also take it internally first). Many people are surprised to learn that lots of skin issues are caused by internal problems, such as food allergies, stress or lack of proper nutrition. Sea buckthorn works amazingly well for skin when taken internally because it’s packed with dense nutrition and lots of Omegas. It is also a great option for those with particularly sensitive skin.

      It couldn’t hurt to see a dermatologist if you can, just to be sure you do not have an infection on your skin.

      Try to simplify your routine, examine the products you are using as well as other factors like your diet and stress levels. Keep trying and you will be able to find the balance of what works for your individual skin type.

      Hope that helps and thanks for your question!
