Estrogen is a hormone that’s essential to keeping vaginal tissues healthy. This hormone helps to maintain the vagina’s normal lubrication, acidity levels, and elasticity. Therefore, when estrogen levels decline, the lining of the vagina becomes thinner and less elastic, and the vagina produces less lubrication. This is called vaginal atrophy.

As species belonging to this genus accumulate lipids in the mesocarp (the fleshy part of the fruit), oil can be extracted from either the seeds or the pulp of the fruit.α-Tocopherol is the major vitamin E compound in sea buckthorn. Seed oil also contains considerable amounts of gamma-tocopherol. The total amount of tocopherols and tocotrienols in seed oil is roughly 100–300 mg / 100 g and in pulp oil 100–200 mg / 100 g of oil.
As carotenoids are the pigments that give sea buckthorn berry its distinctive colour, The total content of carotenoids varies (300–2000 mg/100 g) In general, the main carotenoids present in pulp oil are beta-Carotene, zeaxanthin and lycopene
