Brand Spotlight: MyHavtorn Organic Skincare

MyHavtorn of Sweden

We were delighted to be selected as the first online retailer in the US (and one of the few retailers, period) of MyHavtorn's sea buckthorn-infused organic skin care products.

Why are we such ardent fans of MyHavtorn? Let us count the ways.

1. These organic products feature sea buckthorn oil, which offers significant anti-aging and nourishing benefits even for sensitive and delicate skin (rosacea and eczema sufferers, take note) thanks to enormous amounts of vitamins A and C along with essential fatty acids. Sea buckthorn is a true skincare superfood — Dr. Oz calls it a "miracle berry."

2. And this is not just any sea buckthorn. MyHavtorn is a small, family-owned company that grows its own sea buckthorn trees, bred for the highest concentrations of active vitamins and minerals on the family's farm in Sweden’s Bollebgyd Valley. Plus, they handpick 90% of the sea buckthorn berries (a much more sustainable approach than other producers take). They make the best quality sea buckthorn oil around.

3. MyHavtorn’s products are, quite simply, exquisitely formulated. 

  • MyHavtorn Organic Facial Oil blends sea buckthorn oil with argan oil and avocado oil for additional skin-protecting benefits and better absorption
  • The sea buckthorn-rich MyHavtorn Organic Face Cream sinks into skin like a dream, thanks to argan, safflower, and avocado oils
  • MyHavtorn Organic Hair Oil is the most magical dryness- and frizz-busting hair treatment ever
  • MyHavtorn Organic Nail & Cuticle Oil uses a potent blend of sea buckthorn, sesame, and coconut oils to nourish, and myrrh and cold-pressed lemon oil to fight inflammation and infection (perfect for regular manicure treatments)
  • MyHavtorn Organic Body Oil is packed with organic rapeseed, sesame, safflower, avocado, and sea buckthorn oils to boost elasticity and firmness while providing serious antioxidant protection

4. We found out about the products through our amazing facialist, friend, and advisor, Julia March. Everything Julia finds for us is incredible.

5. Because their products are so pure and they eschew the use of irritating preservatives, MyHavtorn freshly produces batches of products for us in Bollebygd. Really. Check out our Instagram highlights for video evidence.
