Difference | Seabuckthorn Carbon Dioxide Oil and Seabuckthorn Oil

supercritical co2 extracted sea buckthorn oil

Supercritical CO2 extraction is the optimization method for producing sea buckthorn oil. It helps protect the active properties of the plant material.

The process produces the highest-quality pure plant extracts. This process forces CO2 in its supercritical state through raw plant material.

Supercritical fluid is any substance at a temperature and pressure above its critical point, where distinct liquid and gas phases do not exist. It can effuse through solids like a gas, and dissolve materials like a liquid.

This is the cleanest method to extract sea buckthorn oils. It’s the optimization way to preserve the nutrients and keep the oil stable. It also uses the lowest temperature of any other method, even colder than cold press!

Sea buckthorn seed oil is nearly impossible to make from any other method besides CO2 Extraction.

Sea buckthorn seeds are very tiny, akin to the little black seeds you’ll see in kiwi fruits. They’re too small to cold press and other methods simply don’t make a final oil product that is pure and undamaged.

Sea buckthorn seed oil by Seabuckwonders is extremely pure, and CO2 extractions enables us to give our customers the unique and extremely nutritious bounty that is found in these tiny seeds.

Omega 7 From Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil

While it’s easier to get oil from sea buckthorn berries than seeds, the utmost care must be taken to ensure that the myriad of delicate fatty acids and nutrients are not destroyed in the final stages of processing.

Other Methods Damage Oil

Not only does CO2 supercritical extraction preserve the Omega 7 content, it ensures the oils are shelf stable. Other methods for processing damage the complex nutrition in the plant material, leaving the oil at risk for becoming rancid.

Why Choose Sea Buckthorn Oil Over Juice?

Sea Buckthorn Pulp CO2 Extract, which is extracted from the pulp of the Sea Buckthorn berries, is a clear to turbid red colour and 1kg of the Pulp Extract is equivalent to 8-14kg of the raw material.

Containing 30% palmitoleic acid, high levels of vitamins A & E and other Bio-active substances, Sea Buckthorn provides effective protection against free radicals and ageing of the skin. It is a nourishing, revitalising and restorative oil.

Sea buckthorn berries are very acidic and have a very sour or pungent smell and flavor. When the berries are crushed to make sea buckthorn juice, they must be heavily diluted with water (often 5:1 or more). Most sea buckthorn juice is sweetened with other juices or sugar to make it palatable. Even then, most people find the taste of sea buckthorn juice unpleasant. This becomes problematic because most people want to take sea buckthorn as a health supplement. They aren’t expecting a big dose of sugar along with it!

Sea buckthorn oils are all made from pure, 100% sea buckthorn oils. The only processing involved is CO2 Supercrticial Extraction- which preserves much of the nutrition in the final oil product. There is no sour or bitter flavor in sea buckthorn oils whatsoever. They have a much more pleasant botanical or nutty taste.
