Sea buckthorn is believed to have originated from the Himalayas, but was also used by ancient Greeks and other European cultures.

Sea buckthorn oil is available either as a seed oil or fruit/berry oil, extracted from the seeds or the fleshy pulp of the small, nutrient-rich yellow-orange or red berries. Although both share some characteristics in their nutrient profiles, they have pronounced differences, too. For instance, the fruit oil is dark red or red orange, while the seed oil is yellow.
