Sea-Buckthorn Juice (Hippophae Rhamnoides), the common Sea Buckthorn, is by far the most widespread of the species in the genus, with the ranges of its eight subspecies extending from the Atlantic coasts of Europe across to northwestern Mongolia and northwestern China.

Sea-Buckthorn  branches are stiff and thorny, while the leaves are of a long, thin, silver color. The berries of Sea-Buckthorn, however, are small, orange, and only found on female plants.

When the berries are pressed, the resulting Sea-Buckthorn Juice separates into three layers: on top is a thick, orange cream, in the middle, a layer containing Sea-Buckthorn's characteristic high content of saturated and polyunsaturated fats, and the bottom layer is sediment and juice. Containing fat sources applicable for cosmetic purposes, the upper two layers can be processed for skin creams and liniments, whereas the bottom layer can be used for edible products such as syrup.

In ancient times, leaves and young branches from sea buckthorn were supposedly fed as a remedy to horses to support weight gain and appearance of the coat, thus leading to the name of the genus, Hippophae derived from Hippo (Horse), and Phaos (Shining).
