“I usually don’t use face creams because they are too heavy for my skin….”
“I normally don’t like wearing moisturizers in the day….”
“I don’t use a daytime moisturizer because of my oily skin….”
These are just a few of the reasons we hear why some people don’t like using a daytime facial moisturizer.
But keep reading, those testimonials don’t end there. Here’s the full story:
“I usually don’t try face creams because they are too heavy for my skin….but this one is more like a moisturizing serum. It is lightweight, pleasant and clean feeling. It feels soothing once applied, effortless to absorb and smells fresh/fruity. On par with other, way more expensive face lotions I’ve tried.”- Lola
“I normally don’t really like wearing moisturizers in the day….but this feels really good & isn’t making me break out (I’m very prone to acne)”- Binny
“I don’t use a daytime moisturizer because of my oily skin… but the Nourishing Facial Cream seems to actually help my skin not be as oily! Love the light feel.”- Alex
What? It’s actually helping to reduce oily skin? Yes!
Our Nourishing Face Cream is rich in both sea buckthorn seed oil and fruit oil, and although it may seem counter-intuitive, adding oils to your skin can help signal your sebaceous glands (the glands that produce the oil on our skin) to stop creating these excess oils.
What if I don’t have oily skin?
Maybe your problem is the exact opposite. You’ll use a daytime cream only find that mere hours later your skin feels dry and dull. Where did the moisture go?!
It can be difficult finding a daytime moisturizer that, one, doesn’t leave a thick greasy residue on your skin, two, is still nourishing enough that your skin won’t go back to that dry, cracked feeling as the day goes on, and third, a daytime cream that increases your skin’s moisture without leaving your face shining like a disco ball.
Our Nourishing Facial Cream is specially formulated to be light, yet rich and rejuvenating.
Made with only natural ingredients like shea butter, meadowfoam and of course premium sea buckthorn, help to create a daytime facial cream to help moisturize, protect and repair skin for feel good, happy skin.

What the other guys don’t want you to know…. who has the best sea buckthorn?
More and more companies are jumping on the sea buckthorn oil boat every day, claiming they’re the best of the best. But how do we know which sea buckthorn varieties are hype and which are true?
I’m not here to tell you who’s wrong and who’s right, but I am going to give you a few facts on the how and why we believe we truly excel in the world of organic sea buckthorn (sea berry)
Sea buckthorn is our specialty, it’s what we do…
Our entire business relies on the quality and the results this little orange berry can bring.
So with all the new and “improved” sea buckthorn varieties surfacing, it seems daily, how do you know which is the right pick?
Hopefully, we’ll answer a lot of your questions right here and now. If not, be sure to leave them in the comments section.
But first, what is sea buckthorn?
In one sentence, it’s whole food beauty nutrition, with some pretty amazing health benefits, too.
Sea buckthorn, also known as sea berry, is a tiny pea sized fruit that grows in various areas across Europe, Asia, and Canada.
Rich in over 190 naturally occurring nutrients, omegas 3, 9, and the elusive skin repairing, omega 7. Sea buckthorn has been used for over 1,300 years for its various beauty and health benefits.
Not all sea buckthorn is created equal….. Don’t take our word for it, here’s a quick testimonial from a SIBU customer:
So you’re probably asking, what’s the Sibu difference?
Out of the many varieties of sea buckthorn that grow across the globe, there’s one specific type which has been tested and proven to have the highest nutritional levels and highest omega 7 content over any other variety.
It’s called turkistanica….. The best sea buckthorn in the world.
But again, don’t take our word for it. Take a gander at these third-party analyses measuring the percentage levels of omega 7.
This unique type of sea buckthorn (turkestanica) grows high in the Himalayan Mountain tops where the environment is harsh, the soil is tough and the air is thin.
These extremes in environment help create some of the best sea buckthorn in the world.
We are the only company that harvests from our own wild-growing sea buckthorn fields. Untouched by any type of harmful man-made process, we let Mother Nature do all the work.
And I’m sure she does it better than we could ever replicate!
Where’s proof? Go and buy any other brand of sea buckthorn liquid supplement, pour yourself a glass and you’ll see a dull, dead, tainted rusty brown color fill your cup.
….Now, try SIBU Omega 7 Pure (100% pure sea buckthorn, NOTHING else added) and you’ll be met with a beautiful, vibrant, bright orange that screams LIFE!
What sets Sibu apart from the other guys:
Hand harvested berries– only the ripe berries that are ready to be consumed ever make it into our finished product so you get perfectly crafted, wholefood nutrition.
Harvested in the early morning hours- the sun eats away and depletes nutrients in fruits as the day progresses. The early morning hours are when our sea buckthorn berries are at their best and most potent.
Same day processing– the moment you pick any type of fruit, you’ve taken it from its life force, it begins to die, it begins to lose nutrients. Processing our berries the same day they are harvested allows them to carry on more of the good stuff, ready for you to benefit from.
…Okay, maybe not everything, but it does help in a variety of different ways.
We live in a world where so many foods we eat are causing sickness and disease instead of preventing it.
The problem isn’t that healthy foods aren’t out there, it’s finding the right ones that’s tough.
Many of the foods we find in our local supermarket have been so heavily processed that our body receives very little, if any, nutritional benefit.
Imagine your car running low on fuel, low on oil, low on coolant, low on transmission fluid, low on everything your car needs to run properly.
Imagine your car operating like this every day. Eventually, there’s going to be some damage. Our bodies work in similar ways…
Your Body Can Only Work With What You Give It!
If we’re not feeding our body what it needs to run at optimal levels, healthy functions begin to break down. And unless you’ve already taken action to improve your health and the foods you eat, this is how all of our bodies are operating day in and day out.
If you are already eating healthy and making positive changes to your diet, then BIG KUDOS to you! You’re well on the road to reaching your health goal.
But even with healthy diets and proper foods, we find that our bodies are still lacking many necessary nutrients to live vibrant, healthy lives.
This is why wholefoods play a vital role in our efforts to increase our overall health.
What about multi-vitamin supplements?
I’d say it’s better than taking nothing at all but they do have a major disadvantage. Most vitamin supplements are manmade and combined with other so-called “healthy” ingredients to create a once-a-day multi-vitamin.
The problem with these vitamins is that because they’re manmade, they’re foreign to our body.
Our body doesn’t know how to properly use the nutrients to their highest potential. Nutrients that don’t get used don’t produce any positive results.
Lost nutrients = lost money, and more importantly, NO significant health improvements.
If you have sensitive skin then you know what it’s like to deal with skin that easily flares up, and there are many products you have to avoid to prevent redness and itchiness; these highly frustrating symptoms go hand in hand with sensitive skin.
If you use commercial products from your local drugstore, you may want to take a closer look at the label, as most commercial skin care products are teeming with foreign sounding ingredients. These unpronounceable ingredients are usually harmful chemicals and fillers added to products to improve the consistency or extend the life of a product, but they are a sensitive complexion’s worst nightmare.
Even if your skin is not sensitive, you should want to know exactly what you are applying to your precious skin, as more than 60% of everything you apply to your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream. With a sensitive skin, however, what’s going on inside your body is usually reflected on the outside when your skin turns red and feels tender and hot to the touch.
Fortunately, there are a few ways you can soothe your sensitive skin and prevent future flare ups. Keep reading to enjoy calmer and happier skin today!
1. Use Natural Products That Reduce Inflammation
Natural products, free from chemicals, are what every skin needs, especially sensitive skin.
Our products, here at SIBU, are ideal for sensitive skinned individuals as our key ingredient, Sea Berry, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that not only prevent a flare up, but soothe your skin too if another product has caused an issue for you.
Again, this is important for all skin types as hot water strips the skin of oils needed to keep your skin hydrated and protected. If your skin is sensitive though, it’s extra important to maintain balanced oil levels to prevent flare ups and irritation. Always use lukewarm to cool water when washing your face, and rinse with cold water for your final rinse to close your pores and tighten your skin.
3. Don’t Over Exfoliate
While exfoliation is important for clear and healthy skin, it only needs to be done once a week, or even once every 2 weeks if your skin is super sensitive. Harsh scrubs can actually scratch the skin and create microscopic tears in the skin, which is the absolute last thing you need if your skin is already sensitive and easily irritated.
Don’t let sensitive skin rule your life, switch to healthier products and follow our tips and your skin will stay happy, soothed and beautiful! Let us know if you have any more tips you’d like to share in the comments!
It’s a topic that isn’t too heavily discussed, for obvious reasons. But, just because we don’t talk about it, doesn’t mean the problem doesn’t exist.
While there are many options out there, sea buckthorn is the only one that provides a key nutrient needed for increased moisture from within, omega 7. Omega 7 is a key omega that our body needs to help produce more, and maintain more of our body’s natural hydration. It’s effective nutritional support from the inside-out.
Imagine… problem solved by simply taking 2 capsules per day. NO prescriptions. No Creams. No side effects. (other than the added bonus of healthy skin & hair)
Everyone has experienced dry, acne problem skin at some point in their lives. It’s embarrassing and unsightly, and in some cases it can lead to further infection and scarring. Here are the top six home remedies to decrease your risk of dry skin and acne.
1. Drink plenty of water
Yes, you’ve heard it before, but by increasing your water intake, you’ll assist your body in flushing out the toxins that you come into contact with every day. You’ll also hydrate your skin, which will help decrease the risk of acne.
2. Try a honey mask
Honey has natural antibiotic properties – that’s a way of saying it’s nature’s tetracycline. Before you go to the doctor to try a prescription antibiotic, try a natural honey mask. Mix 3 parts honey with 1 part lemon juice after gently cleansing your face, and leave on your skin until dry. Rinse with warm water. (don’t forget the Sea Berry Seed Oil)
3. Increase your fruit and veggie intake
Again, you’ve heard it before. Balancing your diet to include fresh fruits and vegetables will ensure that you’re getting all the vitamins essential for healthy skin. Vitamin A, Vitamin D and Vitamin C are just three of these.
4. Try a Purifying Clay Mask
Clay masks are excellent for drawing impurities out of the pores, and controlling excess sebum in the skin, however some of them can be quite harsh and drying. Our Purifying Clay Mask is gentle enough for all skin, thanks to the addition of our key ingredient; Sea Berry, which has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.
5. Sea Berry Seed oil
Sea berry seed oil is a miracle worker for skin conditions. It’s been proven to help clear up rosacea, acne, dermatitis and eczema. It may be difficult to find in stores, so try a product like SIBU’s Sea Berry Seed Oil.
6. Establish a daily routine
It sounds obvious, but establishing a habit of good skin care is critical to the prevention of acne. Wash your face in the morning using a mild cleanser, then apply a toner and moisturizer. Don’t be afraid to moisturize during the day. Before bed, apply a mask, or at least be sure to remove all makeup from your face. You’ll moisturize overnight with a product like SIBU’s Rejuvenating Night Cream and be fresh faced to begin again in the morning.
