Oil extraction from Sanndorn

Sea buckthorn oil is divided into three different types of oil.

  1. Sea buckthorn fruit oil
  2. Sea buckthorn seed oil
  3. Sea buckthorn pomace oil

On the one hand, the fruit pulp oil can be obtained by sedimentation or centrifugation of the raw pressed juice. However, this can also be produced by extraction with supercritical CO2.

Seed oil is obtained by separating the seeds from the pulp and then adding them to an e.g. Florapower hard kernel press. The pressing is done purely mechanically in a cold pressing process. In addition to cold pressing, extraction of the oil is also possible.

The pomace oil consists of a mixture of pulp and kernel oil and forms the actual sea buckthorn oil.

The valuable properties of sea buckthorn oil

Fruit pulp oil is a thin to semi-solid, clear oil that is orange-red in color due to the carotenoids. Its smell is typically fruity and sweet like sea buckthorn and it tastes fruity and typically aromatic like sea buckthorn.

Pomace oil, on the other hand, is yellow-red and has no sea buckthorn odor.

The smell of pomace oil is described as sour, fruity, lemony and smelling of sea buckthorn.

Other ingredients include vitamins A, B and K, manganese, calcium, magnesium and iron. It also contains lecithin, flavonoids, tannins, carotenoids, ß-carotene, sitosterol and minerals such as phytosterols, biogenic amines and polyphenols. The oil also contains a high proportion of vitamin C.

What is particularly striking about sea buckthorn oil is its high vitamin E content, which makes it a valuable antioxidant.

Shelf life

If stored in a dark and cool place, sea buckthorn oil can be kept for about 3 months.
