How to choose right oil?

1. At external use and skin problems at least  300  carotenoids per 100g of cold-pressed oil.

2. For cosmetic purposes for use in creams or oils. At least 150  carotenoids per 100g of cold-pressed unrefined oil.

3.For internal use at least 150 carotenoids of cold-pressed unrefined oil.

High quality oil with high content of carotenoids has hazel color. The more carotenoids are in the oil the darker color it has.

At 150 -180 it is dark red color and at 300 it is dark brown color.

All oils, having light magenta or orange color, are not effective and will not help you to solve your problems.

Buy only high quality oil. Pay attention to quantity of carotenoids and color. If 180 carotenoids are indicated and not very dark liquid in the bottle it is a deceit.

Pay attention to the color of this oil. This is the oil containing 300 carotenoids. Here there are 150 carotenoids. Don’t let be cheated.


Let’s count them: aging skin that lost the elasticity; wrinkles and other irregularities on the skin of the face; dry and damaged skin (including after chapping) that needs moisture and nutrition; oily and problem skin; skin rashes, inflammations, wounds, fractures, burns and other dermatological problems; unwanted pigmentation; swelling; roughspots of the skin.


Allergy to sea buckthorn or its individual intolerance; open skin lesions; during pregnancy and lactation, when the smell of this product may cause nausea and later its intolerance; inflammatory processes in internal organs - liver, stomach, gall bladder (at internal use).

Highly concentrated product is not recommended to apply on the skin in a pure form because of large percentage of carotenein its composition can weaken the protective barrier of the skin and even cause allergies (at high skin sensitivity). In addition to that if the product is kept on the face for long time, the skin will get bright orange color and it will be extremely difficult to remove it.

Remember one more tip: for application on the skin, use a product, made by cold pressing, not by cold extraction, as the oil of last production technique can be toxic to the skin.
