Ingredient breakdown: SEA BUCKTHORN
Sea buckthorn is originally a wild plant from Central Asia. Over millennia it spread naturally across from the Alps in central Europe to the coasts of the North and Baltic Seas. The ripe berries of the sea buckthorn have provided vitamin-packed juice for Weleda’s supplements for almost 70 years. During the Second World War, when scientists were looking for natural sources of vitamin C, they came across sea buckthorn in Switzerland and decided to harness the plant’s potential. This was the birth of products known today as Sea Buckthorn Juice and Elixir). More recently, Weleda developed rich natural and organic cosmetic products based on sea buckthorn oils.
The wild sea buckthorn plant demonstrates an important aspect of bio-dynamic agricultural philosophy and sustainability for Weleda. Agricultural and medicinal plants that could be collected in the wild are increasingly being cultivated, partly due to the disappearance of habitats through construction, and also due to a reduction in species as a result of intensive farming. Weleda has set a corporate goal of starting to cultivate a wild plant every year, sometimes in cooperation with research and cultivation partners, but also in our own biologically-diverse medicinal plant garden. This way, the survival of endangered plant types can be ensured for the future. By safeguarding these plants through cultivation, Weleda also ensures continued access to essential raw materials needed for our uniquely beneficial product ranges.
After a bath or shower, apply small amount to the damp skin, spread It equally and let it be quickly absorbed. When used with gentle massage it has a regulating effect on the skin's functions and builds warm protective layer.
