SeabuckWonders claims to be the original sea buckthorn company who brought sea buckthorn product to the US market. They offer a full line of supplements and skincare products utilizing 100% pure, certified USDA organic sea buckthorn oil with a minimum 30-35% Omega-7 content, the highest concentration available on the market at this time. Their founders have been formulating natural health supplements and sea buckthorn oil blends since 1994 and have a background in medicinal anthropology, the study of ancient medicines. They consider themselves to be the “Sea Buckthorn Experts”.

New Chapter was founded in 1982 to “To deliver the Wisdom of Nature to all those seeking natural wellness” as stated in their mission statement. Starting off with mainly herbal formulations, they eventually delved into food supplements and tinctures. Today, New Chapter is a leading brand in the natural supplements arena. They don’t specialize in sea buckthorn like the predecessors listed above but they do offer sea buckthorn soft gels and are a credible brand. Their sea buckthorn soft gels are not 100% pure, however, and contain other ingredients besides sea buckthorn.
SiBu Beauty coins itself as the sea buckthorn beauty brand started in 2009. They also offer a line of supplements and skincare products made with sea buckthorn. At this time we are still unsure of their product’s organic status.

Sea Buckthorn Oil Soft Gel Comparison Chart
That’s our round up of sea buckthorn oil soft gel brands and products. Below is a comparative chart of the products reviewed. Make sure to compare apples to apples. Berry (fruit) oil is different than seed oil in value and they have vastly different nutritional profiles. Click here to learn more about sea buckthorn berry oil and sea buckthorn seed oil, respectively. Also, sea buckthorn oil is more expensive than most other plant based oils on the market due to it’s rarity and limited availability. Keep that in mind when comparing 100% pure sea buckthorn oil soft gels with those that are blended with other ingredients. There should be a considerable cost difference if it’s blended with more common, less expensive oils.

For the highest quality and quantity for the value, we currently recommend SeabuckWonders soft gels containing USDA organic oils. According to our product comparison chart, SeabuckWonders has the best value per soft gel. Sibu’s softgel is similar in cost but offers 10% less oil comparing with SeabuckWonders’. SeabuckWonders also uses pure USDA organic oils and, on top of that, they have the highest listed Omega-7 content available (almost all of sea buckthorn’s Omega-7 content is found in the berry oil).
New Chapter’s Sea Buckthorn Force and Super Critical Omega-7, which are actually the same product with a different label, are the only products listed here that are not 100% pure sea buckthorn. They’re blended with other oils and are in somewhat a class of their own. They do contain sea buckthorn as their main ingredient but in a lower amount than any of the other brands compared here.
