This is what I found out when checking out Sibu Beauty...
How Sibu Beauty started:
"The journey to create a successful company can be as arduous as scaling a Tibetan mountainside, but well worth the view from the top. Bruce McMullin founded Sibu in 2003 after series of events led him to Calcutta, India where he crossed paths with an ayurvedic specialist in Chinese plants and herbs. In passing, this expert mentioned a powerful holy fruit, the Sea Buckthorn berry.
From there McMullin's quest took him to new heights, figuratively and literally, as he journeyed to some of the most remote locations of the Himalayas to find the superior source of Sea Buckthorn that is the foundation for all Sibu products."
So you may be asking....
What is sea buckthorn?
"Sea buckthorn is known as nature's most balanced fruit. This "Holy Fruit of the Himalayas" has been cherished by native Tibetans for centuries for its incredible nutritive qualities. Over 120 specific studies on sea buckthorn have shown that this little berry promotes health. From sea buckthorn's rare abundance of some of the most powerful antioxidants to being the only plant in the world known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9 - sea buckthorn has earned its title of superfruit."

What I thought:
At first I was hesitant about using soap on my face. I have very sensitive skin and skin usually dries it out and makes it break out. This was not the case with this product. The soap worked great with my face. It didn't feel dried out like some soap can do. The scent was great too! It has a tart citrus smell to it, very refreshing! :)
The only downside is one bar does cost $6.95. However the bar seems to last awhile, especially if you only use it for your face. Also the bar is created with very high quality ingredients. The price doesn't seems that high when you take those elements into consideration.
