Why You Need to be Using Buckthorn Oil

Sometimes we have to come to the terrible realization that we don’t look as good as we did a few years ago. We can try and fight but when we do fight father time, it’s always a losing battle.

To stand a chance in this fight we have to change the way we think, we have to adapt from trying to fight aging by reversing it and welcome it with open arms.  

Because we are all aging.

Unfortunately, since buckthorn oil is an essential oil, you can't use it directly on your skin. Fortunately, you can dilute buckthorn oil with fresh aloe vera for a perfect defense against unwanted wrinkles.

Or you can use a product with Buckthorn Oil already mixed in.

Our popular Buckthorn Facial Moisturizer has all the benefits of buckthorn oil already mixed in with a moisturizer.

The vitamin C in buckthorn is profound enough to give you a defense as good as any over the counter cream would.

Dry eyes are an unexpected side effect of aging that can suddenly work their way into our lives.
