High in the Himalayas, there is a bight orange berry that has nourished generations of ancient mountain dwellers. Scientists call this wholesome berry Hippophae rhamnoides, but Himalayan natives call it "sea buckthorn". The primary ingredient of Sibu Beauty products can be found clinging to rock walls and growing along glacier-fed streams at elevations from 10,000 to 12,000 feet above sea level. Considered the roof of the world, the Himalayas are home to this willow-leaved, thorn and berry-laden plant.
Sibu founder Bruce McMullin stumbled across this unique fruit white visiting the region and was inspired to create a company based on sea buckthorn's remarkable properties and ancient folklore. Sibu is also known as the "Sea Buckthorn Company". McMullin and co-founder Ryan Lewis began the company by using science that was readily available. They found hundreds of studies which lauded the extraordinary levels of vitamin C & E, essential fatty acids and dozens of other bioactive substances found in sea buckthorn. Over 120 specific studies on seabuckthorn and countless studies on the biological properties found in Sea Buckthorn have shown that this little berry helps to promote health. Sea Buckthorn has earned its title of superfruit because it features a variety of powerful anti-oxidants and is the only plant in the world known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7, and 9.
Before sea buckthorn can be used to create a product, it must make a remarkable journey. Just as has been done for generations, villagers living high in the Himalayas harvest the sea buckthorn berries in the early hours of the morning. Only the berries that are perfectly ripe are chosen and gathered into cloth sack and then into large tubs to be sorted and immediately processed. Once the berries are picked, the processing time clock begins. Sea buckthorn berries must be picked in the cool hours of the morning before the intense radiation of the sun can rob the berries of their nutritive properties. Harvesters - more than 2500 people employed by Sibu - have only six to eight weeks to gather this precious fruit before it loses its potency. Because of Sibu's commitment to fair trade - those two months of employment provide enough income to sustain their families throughout the harsh winter. To capture it in its most potent state, the berry will be pureed that same morning in the local village where harvesters and their families have lived for hundreds of years. This is where ancient processing techniques meet modern technology. The berries are made into a traditional puree and then promptly delivered to Sibu's processing facilities, frozen and sent to Salt Lake City, Utah.
Sibu has spent a great amount of time and effort to bring you the best sea buckthorn berries available in the world. Whenever possible, the company uses packaging, literature and shipping materials that are easily recyclable, met Forest Stewardship Council guidelines and promote a greener, more earth-friendly environment.

Should be renamed miracle serum
I've had cancer treatmeants which have reeked havoc on my peri-menopausal skin, and trying to find products that don't irritate and stress out is hard and getting expensive. I got the oil and serum as a gift from a local health food store. Have been using for only 4 days and have noticed a difference already. The reddness is gone!!! Will definetly order these products from Tsc, when I need them. What great products can't wait to try more.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sibu is an amazing product line
from Caledon, On
The capsules,oil and cream work wonders on your skin. I had very dry skin on my neck and forhead over the winter. after 2 weeks of using the Sea Buckhorn oil and day cream my skin has cleared and is very soft to the touch. I also love the Sea Buckhorn capsules, I sleep better and I have also noticed an improvement in my hair and nails. Cannot say anything wrong about the Sea Buckhorn beauty products.

I'VE BEN USING THE GEL PILLS AND THE CREAM AND OIL NOW FOR TWO MONTHS AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT THERE IS A CHANGE IN MY SKIN THAT IS HARD TO EXPLAIN. I CAN FEEL IT AND SEE IT BUT I CAN'T DESCRIBE IT. IT FEELS FIRMER AND SOFTER. AND I LOVE THE GEL PILLS. MY NAILS ARE A LOT STRONGER AND I FEEL WONDERFUL. I USE THE OIL AS A SERUM EVERY MORNING AND IT GIVES A NICE GLOW WITHOUT BEING SHINY.

I have been using all 3 products for just over a week. I never thought the scarring, rosacea and excema on my face could be helped, but this product has proved to be nothing short of miraculous. I am 57 and very fair and still suffered from breakouts. I always felt that I had the ugliest skin. I never ventured out without full coverage foundation. Yesterday was Mother's Day and for the first time in my life I went out with only a light layer of powder. I am a convert and Sibu's biggest fan. I don't think I will ever be without it!

I have tried so many things to treat my acne trying to avoid prescriptions, and nothing has ever worked. I won't say that my skin is perfect, but just in the 3 weeks since I've been using the Sibu bundle there has been a marked improvement. The deep, cystic pimples I had before starting are clearing up faster then ever. Most remarkable though, is that I literally just spent 5 minutes in the mirror trying to find a 2 inch scar that was on my upper left cheek. It has almost disappeared! For the first time in a long time I actually have hope that at 30 I might finally have "normal" skin. I have never written a review for anything before, but the fact that my scar is almost gone and so are most of my pimples.... would definitely recommend at least trying this bundle for a month [...]

Tried the oil and the face cream. Both had strange, unpleasant odour. The oil made my face break out - which is unusual at my age (60's). Sent both back.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have oily/acneic skin and I'm in my early 30's. I bought the Sibu bundle package so that I could try some of the products before bying into the entire line. I've been using the products for a week now and I have noticed a significant improvment in my skin. Actually, I noticed a difference after only two days!!! I haven't had any new breakouts, my skin is less oily, my pores are smaller, and the overal condition of my skin is healthier, smoother and more radiant. Even my husband noticed that my skin was looking better, and what woman doesn't like that! I would just like to add, that I am a proponent of using only natural products and this line has exceeded my expectations and is going replaced my more expensive European skin care line. The moisturizer has a light citrus smell which I really enjoy as it gives you a nice wake-up call in the morning. It's fast absorbing and doesn't leave my face feeling greasy. The seed oil I've been using all over my face in the evenings and I haven't had any breakouts or problems. It does have a natural smell to it, but I would be more worried if it smelled fragrancy as then it wouldn't be all natural. The seed oil capsules I have to admit are like a secret arsenal that I take before bed. Unlike fish oil, there is no fishy taste and I truely believe that there is a strong correlation between outside in and inside out treatment. All in all, this is the best bang for your buck, to try out a new line before jumping in. I will be trying out the rest of the line!

not exactly a wellness bundle for me
My skin tends to break out and I was hoping the cellular support capsules would help 'from the inside out' but the opposite happened! My forehead which does not normally break out, developed very large inflamed cysts after 2 weeks of taking the capsules everyday. I've never gotten them that big and stopped taking the capsules. A few days after stopping my forehead started to clear up -thank god! The face cream I liked as it moisturized without making my skin oily, the seed oil works for me to. I would not recommend this bundle but I would recommend the face cream and the seed oil seperately.
