This Orange Glow Face Serum combines ingredients that shine and nourish the skin. Rosehip seed oil is expressed from the plant’s seeds and is rich in fatty acids. Both rosehip seed and jojoba oil soak into the skin easily without leaving a greasy residue. Sea buckthorn oil is a brilliant red-orange color, and rich in carotenes, thus giving a glow to the skin. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce the signs of aging to the skin. Helichrysum essential oil is known to offer skin restorative benefits. Therefore, all these ingredients were combined together to make this Orange Glow Face Serum!
Orange Glow Face Serum Ingredients
- ½ oz rosehip seed oil
- ½ oz jojoba oil
- 1/4 oz of sea buckthorn carrier oil
- ONLY 2 drops of vitamin E oil
- 7 drops of helichrysum essential oil
Thoroughly mix ingredients into a two ounce amber glass bottle with dropper. Then, apply about 4 drops to the face. Your face will have an orange hue from the sea buckthorn oil for about ten minutes, and can stain clothing. Thus, allow to dry for about 10 minutes before coming into contact with cloth that you don’t want stained.
For those with sensitive skin, skin patch test on the arm before using on your face.
Modification – For very dry skin, also add 1/2 ounce of wheatgerm oil.

Some Orange Glow Face Serum Research
- Rich in vitamins E and A as well as carotenoids and palmitoleic acid; these ingredients in sea buckthorn oil are known for improving skin. From: Important therapeutic uses of sea buckthorn (Hippophae): a review.
- Topical application of sea buckthorn oil increased cutaneous thickness of human skin. From: Effects of oral supplementation and topical application of supercritical CO2 extracted sea buckthorn oil on skin ageing of female subjects.
- In a trial with 62 women ages 45 and older, skin elasticity was improved and there was reduced roughness. This was using a product containing Pinus pinaster bark, vitamins C and E, carotenoids, selenium, zinc, amino acids and glycosaminoglycans, and blueberry extract. From: Supplementation with Evelle® improves skin smoothness and elasticity in a double‐blind, placebo‐controlled study with 62 women.
- A supplement of beta carotene was protective against UV skin damage in humans. From: Supplementation with β-carotene or a similar amount of mixed carotenoids protects humans from UV-induced erythema.
- Flavonoids were active components, reducing UVB induced erythema. Thus, the authors suggested H. italicum may be useful in formulation of burn treatment, radioprotection, and sunscreen products. From: Anti-erythematous and photoprotective activities in guinea pigs and man of topically applied flavonoids from Helichrysum italicum G. Don.
