Why sea buckthorn is so effective in diminishing dark spots ?

Around their forties, and even well before, many women see brownish spots appear on their skin. Called "pigment spots", these are in fact a manifestation of localized hyperpigmentation of the skin (due to overproduction of melanin [brown pigments]). This hyperpigmentation occurs in areas of the body that are most exposed to the sun, generally: face, cleavage, arms, shoulders and hands. These spots give the illusion of skin looking older than it actually is.
Pigment spots can be due to the oxidation of skin tissue (aging) or to the accumulation of melanin in the epidermis on the surface of the skin (hormonal imbalance, too frequent sun exposure, genetics, etc.). Under the cumulative effects of UV exposure, pollution and stress, melanocytes are no longer regulated in sufficient quantity and their activity is disturbed, thus creating an excessive production of melanin. This overproduction leads to an irregular distribution of melanin, which causes uneven pigmentation. These melanin-laden cells rise to the surface of the skin, and appear as brown spots.
Why sea buckthorn is so effective in diminishing dark spots.
Known and used for centuries in Europe and Asia, sea buckthorn has proven its worth in medicine and dermocosmetics. With thirty times more vitamin C than oranges, extremely rare unsaturated fatty acids and an incredible range of nutrients, sea buckthorn is among the most nutritious plants on the planet. Sea buckthorn berry is rich in antioxidants, carotenoids and phytosterols, vitamins A, C and E, Omega 3-6-7-9, minerals and polyphenols.
Winners: the synergy between beta-carotenes and vitamins
Rich in carotenes and vitamin E, Sea buckthorn seed oil plays a very important role in reducing dark spots. Long-term daily application of this oil to the skin inhibits tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for the production of melanocytes (cells that pigment the skin).
Powerful antioxidants, beta-carotenes and vitamin E contained in large quantities in sea buckthorn seed oil work in synergy to protect skin cells against free radicals caused by external aggressions and UV rays which are partly responsible for the appearance of pigment spots. Plus, sea buckthorn seed oil prevents and alleviates sunburns by reducing skin sensitivity to UV rays.
In addition to balancing the color of the skin and unifying the complexion by reducing dark spots, the combination of beta-carotenes and vitamin E contained in sea buckthorn seed oil fights against skin aging, wrinkles and skin imperfections.
