i'm a fan...rich lotion...Light but effective....I bought this body cream on a whim and wasn't expecting anything dramatic - in fact, I wasn't really thrilled with the scent to be honest, but loved the hydrating effect after the shower.
What it is:
An ultra-hydrating and nourishing treatment for dry skin.

What it does:
Rich with omegas 3,6, 7, and 9, this moisturizing formula hydrates and nourishes extra dry skin, calming and relieving irritation. Fortified with seaberry oil, also known as seabuckthorn oil, cranberry seed oil, and sal seed butter, these ingredients help to restore, protect, and soften the skin. Vitamin E also works to maintain the skin's elasticity and smoothness while apricot kernel seed oil and jojoba seed oil help to hydrate and nourish. Sea lavender further helps soothe and calm dry skin. Its creamy rich texture offers a luxurious experience.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

What else you need to know:
While Fresh has used seaberry oil in small doses in existing skin care products, the Seaberry Bodycare Collection marks the first time anyone has been able to introduce the ingredient in a highly concentrated form. One of the major challenges of doing so is the oil's strong and specific odor as well as its bright orange color that can literally tint the skin. After a long process using the advanced technology available to Fresh, Co-founder Lev Glazman discovered a way to filtrate the oil's color so it would not stain the skin, and he created a unique natural fragrance that not only neutralizes the oil's odor but is positively addictive.

Research results:
Seaberry Restorative Body Cream is proven to have a significant moisturizing effect 24 hours after initial application.

Grape seed oil and organic shea butter nourish and restore skin while ceramides support the skin barrier throughout the night.

Sourced from grapevine stalks, it is an antiaging revolution that naturally intensifies the firmness and youthfulness of the skin. No other molecule has fueled as much hope for health, notably in the field of cell degeneration. Grapevines have an incredible power to resist the harsh effects of the cold, wind, and rain to live for up to 100 years. Their secret? Resveratrol, a substance that the vine produces to protect itself.
