The thorny shrub with yellowy-orange berries is a familiar sight – sea buckthorn. The extreme conditions it can thrive in, such as heat, cold and drought, play a major role in the unique composition of the vitamin-rich berries.
The oil from the prized fruits is particularly well suited to use in cosmetics due to its high levels of palmitoleic acids, vitamin E and carotenoids (provitamin A). It has anti-inflammatory properties and cares for dry skin.
The sea buckthorn berries used by Tautropfen come from a DEMETER project in sunny Tuscany. Their decades of experience mean Tuscan farmers know precisely how to grow, harvest and process sea buckthorn, ensuring that only the very best makes its way into Tautropfen products.
