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.

I got this as a showstopper and am I glad I got Auto Delivery. I just can't do without it and don't intend to. My weak chippy nails are very much improved and I feel so much better when I am taking the juice. I love the taste which is a little tart. I have only been through one order so this can just get even better.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this supplement. It is very easy to take, I usually add it to orange-mango juice.I am only on my second bottle of this, so have not seen all the results yet, but the texture of my skin is much better and the pores are smaller.The price for 4 of these at the Shopping Channel is about $40 less that if I bought them at my local store.

Sibu delivers what it promises
A long time ago I ordered Sibu from TSC because I had already tried some from a health food store and was impressed with the resultsAt that time it was the facial lotion and oil that was available. I liked the results but the price was high.TSC offered a package when they introduced Sibu with the facial cream, oil, capsules and the juice. I ordered two a that time. I also ordered the soap which I LOVE.At that time I was in a difficult situation involving work,family commitments and personal stressors.After one month on the Sibu Liquid and capsules, my nails and hair were strong and healthy. I didn't really believe it was Sibu and when my supply ran out I stopped using them.Another showstopper came along and I got it.My skin was beautiful after using the concentrated oil on problem areas and the facial cream was light,easily absorbed and helped moisturize the dry areas.Only in 2011 did I learn how much Sibu could improve my health.Early December 2011 I became seriouslly ill.I am still awaiting a definitive diagnoses since December 2011 because my symptoms do not fit into a particular disease pattern. All prognosis appear to be serious and life threating.With the news of my potential health issues, I decided to attempt to be proactive.As a health care professional, it is not unusual for us to explore 'alternative' practices.Over the past month I have taken Sibu Juice and capsules every day without fail.My energy levels have increased, my nails and hair are so much stronger and my skin appears to be improving---I was on a steroid that can have devasting effects on all body systems. My skin was becoming thin and fragile. My hair was becoming less shiny and was beginning to fall out.When I tried to order from TSC earlier, the juice was sold out. I was going to order via my health food store. Thamk goodness it is in stock now.My plan is to continue with Sibu and document my results.Looking forward to health and happiness. Love SIBU and TSC.

It works for me!
I bought 2 bottles drink. It tastes very good, just like orange juice mixed with grapefruit juice. I just finished 1 bottle, I found the dark spots on my forehead getting lighter and lighter.My skin is glowing. I will order more.

Love this product!
I've been using this supplement for two months now. It is very very tasty and I definitely see a noticeable improvement in my skin (wrinkles diminished!). I also feel more energetic. My husband has also started taking this. We take a small recommended amount in the morning and it tastes better than orange juice. Hope you keep stocking this!!

Im on chemo can I just tell you I thought nothing would work for the extremly dry skin. All of these product are working miricles for me!!! Thank-you I still feel rough but my skin seems even better than before treatment started. I got the gel caps for a girlfriend and her skin & hair have improved after just 2 weeks
I started Sibu about two months ago . I have a muscle disease and I seem to be able to handle things a bit better. I have people telling me how beautiful my skin looks and how healthy I look!! Wow...amazing!!! I also use the facial creme and oil wonderful!!
I watched this on tv and told myself I need to look after my skin & nails. I bought it as a showstopper. I have arthritis, osto, rheumatoid, in pain constantly. This is the only thing I have changed, I take it 3 times a day. Pain is very very low, feel absolutwely wonderful, more energy. We have had 2 immediate family members pass away and I was really down & depressed. I can cope with this better than I have. I am ordering 4 more today as this is absolutely great and I don't look tired all the time. I am revived and renewed. Highly recommended for people who suffer and live in pain all the time. My skin looks great. This is the best medicine I have ever had.
