Pit Liquor doesn’t just look luxurious on your dresser, it’s sophisticated because of what’s inside, too. Every ingredient in your bottle of Pit Liquor plays an important role. They all work seamlessly together to keep you smelling good while keeping your skin nourished. We don’t use any filler ingredients—everything in Pit Liquor is there because it serves a purpose and is incredibly effective at what it does.

One ingredient that makes Pit Liquor especially luxurious is sea buckthorn–something that you usually find in high end skincare serums + moisturizers. It’s the ultimate hydrating oil and it’s jam packed with antioxidants. Not everyone knows about its wonders so we’re here to unpack all there is to know about one of our hero ingredients. 


Despite the name, sea buckthorn doesn’t come from the sea. Rather, it’s a kind of berry that grows on thorny shrubs in Europe and Asia. It has been found that sea buckthorn plant berries carry ten times more Vitamin C than an orange and they’re the third highest source of Vitamin E among plants. So basically sea buckthorn oil is the glow-maker of your wildest dreams.


The skin under your pits is sensitive so it must be nurtured. Sea buckthorn has the ability to moisturize skin while also regulating oil, keeping skin uber hydrated. It mimics your body’s natural chemistry because it contains linoleic acid, which is found naturally in sebum. The body produces a sticky oily substance called sebum in order to keep the skin moisturized. Linoleic acid also prevents moisture loss by helping to maintain skin’s lipid barrier.

Thanks to essential fatty acids like Omega 3, sea buckthorn helps your skin in building a defense against environmental stress while also fueling the skin with nutrient-rich moisture that boosts cell generation for healthy skin. 


Sea Buckthorn carries on the work of the overproof spirits in Pit Liquor by working to get rid of unwanted bacteria. It has anti-bacterial, anti-actinic, and anti-psoriatic properties making it an absolute nightmare for BO. 

Antioxidants reign supreme in Sea Buckthorn. It contains more Vitamin E than any other oil and it reduces your skin’s inflammatory response so say goodbye to any irritation or redness in your pits!

Sea buckthorn contains Beta-Carotene and essential fatty acids like Omega 3 that guard against dry, red or itchy skin. These key antioxidants provide skin hydration and smooth skin. 

We think this luxurious oil is a deodorant essential. Your pits deserve Sea Buckthorn! The good news is that you’ll find it in every bottle of Pit Liquor

I’ve found mixed messages over the past few yrs in trying to research this, so maybe you can help shed light: is sea buckthorn a “nightshade” family plant? I was surprised to find that goji berries are nightshades, along with potatoes, tomatoes (and related), eggplant, tobacco, peppers (the fruit, not peppercorns) of all varitieties, including paprika. My research on sea buckthorn was cut short, so I’ve been avoiding it.

IS SEA BUCKTHORN A NIGHTSHADE that some like me with a targeted allergy to nightshades needs to avoid?
