Sea Buckthorn Berry Facial Soap

Sea Buckthorn Berry oil is well known for its healing and rejuvenating effects on the skin. This highly nutritive soap is rich in essential fatty acids, beta carotene, vitamins and minerals which may reduce the signs of ageing. This bar is high in oleic acid, which makes oils richer and heavier, so they seal in moisture more effectively.  When used daily, it may help to slow down the signs of ageing by nourishing your skin.
