Sea buckthorn, both pulp and seed oil, is valuable for improving the quality and moisture of mucous membranes.

Therefore, it is specifically indicated for dry mucous membranes commonly found in the throat, mouth and oral cavities as well as other cavities throughout the body.  Sea buckthorn SBA24 has been clinically studied and shown effective to reduce dryness of the eyes and also menopausal dryness.  It can soothe and moisturize the skin up to 48%, thereby reducing dry skin. 

A recent study has shown it can improve the dryness associated with Sjögren’s disease.  The studies shown to reduce dryness of the mucous membranes were conducted with 2 grams of Sea buckthorn SBA24 daily.  Vaginal dryness was reduced with 3 grams daily of SBA24.
