Seabuckthorn and Skin Diseases(2008/10/1 20:02:32)
An ingredient of the oil, palmitoleic acid, is a component of skin. It is considered a valuable topical agent in treating burns and healing wounds. This fatty acid can also nourish the skin when taken orally if adequate quantities of sea buckthorn or its oil are consumed; this is a useful method for treating systemic skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis. Sea buckthorn oil is already widely used alone or in various preparations topically applied for burns, scalds, ulcerations and infections. It is an ingredient in sun block. Hippophae oil has UV-blocking activity as well as emollient properties and it is an aid in promoting regeneration of tissues.
     In another study forty-nine patients received a daily dose of 5 g sea buckthorn seed oil, pulp oil or paraffin oil for four months. The fatty acid compositions of plasma phospholipids and neutral lipids of the patients were analyzed before, after one month and at the end of the treatment. Skin biopsies were taken from sixteen patients and the fatty acid compositions of skin glycerophospholipids were analyzed before and after the treatment. It was found that supplementation of the seed oil significantly increased the proportion of linolenic acid in plasma neutral lipids and total n-3 fatty acids in plasma phospholipids and neutral lipids. Increases in the proportion of linolenic acid, linoleic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid in plasma phospholipids by the seed oil treatment were close to significant. The pulp oil treatment increased the proportion of palmitoleic acid and lowered the proportion of pentadecanoic acid in both plasma phospholipids and neutral lipids. Seed oil treatment slightly increased the level of docosapentaenoic acid (22:5 n-3) and decreased the level of palmitic acid (16:0) in skin glycerophospholipids. These results indicate a higher efficiency of incorporation and metabolism of linolenic acid than linoleic acid in form of sea buckthorn oil and a relatively stable fatty acid composition of skin glycerophospholipids.
     In the next study, thirty-two cases were treated, among them 19 cases were males, 13 cases were females; the oldest was 78 years old, the youngest was 1 year and two months old. Twenty-eight cases of scalds were caused by various reasons and four cases were caused by gas burning; among them 12 cases were degree I burning, 18 cases were degree II light burning, 2 cases were degree II serious burning. In 14 cases, the burnt area were 5% and 10 cases were under 10%, 1 case was 15% and 4 cases were above 20%. In 28 cases, they were treated with Hippophae seed oil directly after burning and in 4 cases, they were treated in other hospital first and then transferred and treated with Hippophae seed oil. It was established that Hippophae seed oil had functions like improve the human immunity, remove blood stasis and promote blood circulation, anti-inflammation and pain relieve, increase the tissue regeneration etc. and had magic effects in treating burns and scalds. This medicine is easy to use and reliable in the effectiveness without any side effect and could widely use in clinical treatment of burns and scalds.
