However, even if supplements are third-party tested, that doesn’t mean they are necessarily safe for all or effective in general. It is important to talk to your healthcare provider about any supplements you plan to take and to check in about any potential interactions with other supplements or medications.
In herbal medicine, sea buckthorn has long been used to support the digestive system, enhance heart health, reduce inflammation, and treat skin disorders.1
Sea buckthorn oil has also gained popularity as an ingredient in various skin care products. When applied topically, sea buckthorn oil is thought to have many benefits.
Older studies suggest oral sea buckthorn supplements may help treat atopic dermatitis (eczema). For example, one 1999 study tested sea buckthorn pulp oil on 49 people with atopic dermatitis.2 Researchers observed significant improvement in eczema symptoms among those who took sea buckthorn supplements every day for four months.
Some nonhuman animal-based studies have suggested that sea buckthorn may promote wound healing when applied topically. For example, in a 2009 study, scientists found that topically applied sea buckthorn seed oil helped speed up the healing of burn wounds in rats.4
The antioxidant components of sea buckthorn are thought to be responsible for its potential blood sugar-lowering effects.7 Overall, the research in this area has been limited, and more comprehensive studies are needed.
According to a short review, sea buckthorn’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory components are thought to have anti-cancer properties.8
