Sea Buckthorn

Featured Ingredient: Sea Buckthorn Oil

Native to both Europe and Asia, Sea Buckthorn use dates back thousands of years. It’s been recorded in Tibetan medical texts and described as the miraculous berry by ancient Greek scholars. Sea Buckthorn possesses properties that help nourish, revitalize, and restore severe skin ailments such as acne, eczema, dermatitis, skin ulcers, hyper pigmentation and severe skin damage caused by radiation. Along with its astounding healing powers it is also one of nature’s anti-aging secrets, giving skin a youthful appearance by promoting cell regeneration. For these spectacular reasons, we use Sea Buckthorn Oil in almost all of our facial moisturizer formulas.

    I read about Root Science in our local Diablo Magazine. After reading the story I immediately bought a bottle of Bare and starting using it day and night. Within a month my skin had a marked improvement. It had a softer texture, the red lessened and some of the spots disappeared. I also love the way it soaks into my skin within a few minutes. I now use Bare and Bright and have recommended it to my friends. LOVE IT!

    I have battled oily, acne prone skin my entire life. It took a leap of faith for me to put serum on my skin as I always thought it would cause a breakout. I have been using Bare, in combination with the Cleanse bar, for several years now. My skin is no longer oily, but clear and healthy… it even has a subtle glow to it. I can now go makeup free and feel confident which is a feeling I never thought I would experience. I simply love this product.

    I have only been using this product for four days but within those four I can already tell an immense difference in my skin. Before, I had been bouncing between face routines, trying to find ‘the one’ that actually made any difference. Most systems that I have tried only seemed to make my skin worse. This is ultimately the product that I had been missing. My skin is loving it. My skin has not felt this soft in years. It’s amazing that even within our days, my skin’s complexion has already immensely improved. I can definitely tell it is on the proper road to recovery. I will definitely recommend this highly.

    I recently moved to London from Los Angeles and my skin has had a VERY harsh reaction to the change of climate. I broke out in itchy eczema over my entire face, including my neck and ears. My friend who is prone to acne has had success with Root Science and told me to try it. I’m EXTREMELY particular with what I put in and on my body. The ingredients in RS Bare are pure and there are no added chemicals, which in my experience is very rare to find in “green beauty” products. After one week of using the Cleanse bar and Bare oil my inflamed skin has completely calmed down! I’m not exaggerating when I say my skin is hypersensitive to most products and weather. The deep red and dry patches on my face have disappeared and my skin feels moist and balanced again. I highly recommend this product and I’m excited to see the long term effects!

    I have extremely sensitive, acne prone and oily skin that somehow still manages to be dry at times. Saw some of the reviews for RS Bare defense and decided I better get the sample to make sure my skin is okay with it. First use my skin drank it up like water, especially being winter and dryer than usual, woke up to a completely moisturized skin. Absolutely no irritation. It seems to soothe out any redness I have from any break outs and haven’t had an new breakouts since. Will be purchasing the full size bottle and cannot wait to see long term results!!

    A beautiful light weight serum that’s been a saving grace for my environmentally damaged skin. I spend a lot of time outdoors so my skin suffers from sun spots, redness, and dry patches. I’ve been using your products for over 6 months now and can truly say it’s restored my skin back to health!

    Bare Defense has improved my skin like no other product! I have been battling rosacea and severely dry skin my whole life. Finally a product that delivers amazing results. My skin is moisturized and through out the entire day! The serum really penetrates and leaves my skin feeling calm and hydrated. My rosacea has subsided and my skin has a healthy looking glow to it. It’s hard to put in words the transformation my skin has gone through in this short amount of time but its truly a miracle!

  9. Rated 5 out of 5


    I have severe skin sensitivity and break out very easily. After a friend recommended I try RS Bare Defense I decided to do a little bit of research before trying yet another product. The fact that I could pronounce all the ingredients sold me! I’ve had amazing results and my skin is on its way to recovery. It’s been 2 months now and my skin is no longer red, itchy or irritated. My breakouts have subsided and acne scars have started to fade! I can’t wait to see the results after 2 more months! I highly recommend this to people with very sensitive skin.
