Today, I’d like to feature a brand called Sibu. Sibu is an ethically conscious, vegan, and cruelty free brand that sources its ingredients through fair trade practices! It’s a great thing to look into if you’d like to transition to a more cruelty free regime. They currently carry a line of products with Sea Buckthorn extracts.
I have never heard of Sea Buckthorn before, but according to their website, it contains many beneficial properties.
For healthy and beautiful hair, skin and nails
High in the Tibetan Himalayas (12,000 feet above sea level) grows a tiny but resilient fruit that resists the harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. The sea buckthorn berry fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. And it’s a rich source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, a fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.
Sea buckthorn is a natural product with 1300 years of traditional uses with the modern scientific research to back it up. Our superior processing techniques and our premium and exclusive source of sea buckthorn allow us to create a revolutionary group of beauty products.
Sibu Sea Berry Therapy Nourishing Face Cream
Texture: A light but rich face cream incased in a frosted glass bottle with a pump.
Scent: It has a light citrus scent to it… Think standard soft lotion smell with a hint of orange.
Application: The cream is dispensed from a plastic pump. It feels light on the skin, yet noticeably hydrating. It does not feel oily upon application, and it absorbs into the skin fairly quickly.
Sibu Sea Berry Seed Oil
Scent: A light citrus scent.
Application: The oil is housed in a brown glass bottle and is dispensed through a dropper! 2-3 drops is more than enough for the entire face. It initially comes out as a bright orange liquid, but quickly absorbs into the skin. It does leave behind a thin oil residue, but that’s to be expected.
