Sea Buckthorn: Natural preservation of your liposomal formulation

Scientifically known as Hippophae rhamnoides, the bright orange sea buckthorn berry is believed to be native to the Himalayas. Today, however, sea buckthorn is also grown in the cold-temperate regions of Europe and Asia, including the Baltic coasts of Finland, Poland and Germany ¹ .

The extract that we recommend for use in the liposomal formulations we manufacture is basically a concentrated juice extracted from the sea buckthorn berries.

What Makes Sea Buckthorn Extract a Good Preservative?

It has been established that the polyphenols contained in sea buckthorn extracts have a very good antioxidant potential ¹ .

The extracts from the leaves and seeds of this plant also have proven antimicrobial properties ¹ .

Both properties ensure that sea buckthorn is a good natural preservative.

What are the optimal conditions under which it acts as a preservative?

We have found that the sea buckthorn extract that we use in our production works best in a temperature range of 2°C and 21°C. A pH range of 4 - 5 is also ideal for its function as a preservative.

If you store your products according to these recommendations, you can be sure that they will have a long shelf life.
