This Antiaging Ingredient Does It All, Seriously

Ivan Lattuada

PSA: We found the fountain of youth. Okay, maybe not quite. But the latest antiaging ingredient we’re lusting after—sea buckthorn oil, aka “liquid gold”—has got us feeling and looking 22 again. Native to Europe and Asia, sea buckthorn is a plant with nourishing berries that have been used as a natural cure-all for years. Lucky for us, a whole slew of skincare products have harnessed the power of sea buckthorn oil, which is extracted from those precious orange berries (hence the golden color of the oil) to create intensely restorative formulas.

What makes sea buckthorn oil the secret to turning back time? For starters, it’s packed with antioxidant-rich vitamins C and E to help rejuvenate skin and fend off free-radical damage. Beyond that, sea buckthorn oil is deeply moisturizing, thanks to a blend of omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9, plus it offers anti-inflammatory, soothing benefits as well. Translation: Your skin will feel oh-so-supple and soft.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up our favorite sea buckthorn oil-infused moisturizers, serums, cleansers and lotions that will give you that coveted youthful glow, from head to toe.
