In Swedish, Havtorn means Sea Buckthorn, which is the foundation of the family-owned MyHavtorn skincare company. For generations, the Johansson family has harvested their sea buckthorn orchard in the scenic and mineral-water rich Bollebygd Valley. They extract the 'miracle berries' of this revered plant and incorporate the healing oils into their line of MyHavtorn organic skincare.
MyHavtorn products are developed with a passion for the natural healing found in our environment. Sea buckthorn has been valued for centuries for its benefits to the skin and more, and is widely used in Europe, as well as in Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. The hardy shrub yields reddish berries that are filled with nutrients, antioxidants, and fatty acids, including large amounts of vitamins E, A, and C. MyHavtorn cold presses both the seeds and the pulp of the berries into luscious oils, which they synergistically blend with other pure and natural oils, including argan oil, avocado oil, and safflower oil. They then carefully formulate their products with herbs and essential oils to create what they call "Swedish love in a bottle".
"For us shall skin care be a pleasure for both your body and soul. A pure indulgence begins in our stunning nature. Skin care products from MyHavtorn begins just after the ice was like a thick blanket over our country Sweden. That's when the first sea buckthorn seedlings took root here in Sweden." -Robin Johansson, Founder and Managing Director MyHavtorn of Sweden
"Sea buckthorn contains a high amount of fat soluble vitamins A and E, which protect the body against free radicals that cause oxidation and cell damage." - Sven-Erik Johansson, founder and executive vice president MyHavtorn of Sweden
