Cruelty-Free and Vegan Skincare : Sibu Seaberry Therapy



Sibu Sea Berry Therapy

Recently, across my social media channels, I have seen a flood of reviews and recommendations for cruelty free makeup and skincare brands. I definitely support vegan and cruelty free beauty and skincare products - so many products out there contain animal byproducts or have been tested on animals, and it is often swept under the carpet that many people don't even realize this! Even if a brand says they don't test on animals, they may be owned by parent company who does.






Today, I'd like to feature a brand called Sibu. Sibu is an ethically conscious, vegan, and cruelty free brand that sources its ingredients through fair trade practices! It's a great thing to look into if you'd like to transition to a more cruelty free regime. They currently carry a line of products with Sea Buckthorn extracts.

I have never heard of Sea Buckthorn before, but according to their website, it contains many beneficial properties.

For healthy and beautiful hair, skin and nails
High in the Tibetan Himalayas (12,000 feet above sea level) grows a tiny but resilient fruit that resists the harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. The sea buckthorn berry fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. And it’s a rich source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, a fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.

Sea buckthorn is a natural product with 1300 years of traditional uses with the modern scientific research to back it up. Our superior processing techniques and our premium and exclusive source of sea buckthorn allow us to create a revolutionary group of beauty products.


Sibu Sea Berry Therapy Nourishing Face Cream


I really like this moisturizer! It is enriched with Shea Butter, and Meadowfoam to create a powerful barrier that keeps in moisture, protects against toxins, and rejuvenates damaged skin.

Texture: A light but rich face cream incased in a frosted glass bottle with a pump.
Scent: It has a light citrus scent to it... Think standard soft lotion smell with a hint of orange.
Application: The cream is dispensed from a plastic pump. It feels light on the skin, yet noticeably hydrating. It does not feel oily upon application, and it absorbs into the skin fairly quickly.

This feels like a very light moisturizer, probably better as a day cream as it works very nicely as a light primer! 


Sibu Sea Berry Seed Oil


Made of 100% pure Sea Buckthorn, this oil claims to transform dull skin and repair blemishes and scars. 

Texture: A fairly watery consistency. The oil is also a bright orange color, but this is not too noticeable on the skin.
Scent: A light citrus scent.
Application: The oil is housed in a brown glass bottle and is dispensed through a dropper! 2-3 drops is more than enough for the entire face. It initially comes out as a bright orange liquid, but quickly absorbs into the skin. It does leave behind a thin oil residue, but that's to be expected.

Apparently this oil helps soothe redness, so I have high hopes! I had quite a bit of redness on my face and around my nose, so I'll keep you guys updated on my results. It boasts extra benefits for those with troubled skin, as the oil has powerful anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and skin repairing properties. 

The interesting part about this oil is that it can be used for first aid! Apply to cuts, scrapes, minor burns or any damaged skin area to help accelerate the healing process and prevent scarring.




Sibu Sea Berry Therapy Omega 7 Oil 


So at first I thought this was just a big jar of face serum, until I saw the nutritional facts on the back! This is actually an Omega 7 supplement that can be added to food. The directions state to add 2 full squeezes of the dropper into food, drink, or directly into the mouth. Sibu’s Seven Omega 7 Fruit Oil helps regulate cholesterol levels, smooths artery walls and moisturizes skin from the inside out. 

It doesn't really have much of a taste, so you don't notice it when it has been mixed into food.




Have you tried cruelty-free / vegan skincare or makeup products before? Sibu is a great brand to check out if you're thinking about trying new vegan products! They also have some more skincare and supplement products on their website.
