5 Top Russian health & beauty products you must try!

#1. Sea Buckthorn oil. 

"Altay Diveevo" Sea Buckthorn oil
Many people believe that Sea Buckthorn is a miracle product and I may easily agree with that. It can help you not only with different health conditions but with many skin problems as well. There are a lot of brand names on the market (Weleda, Sibu to name a few) but we'd love to introduce Russian brands of Sea Buckthorn oil.  Why? This little miracle berry is very common in Russia which makes Sea Buckthorn oil is much less expensive than American alternatives.

One very popular brand is Diveevo Sea Buckthorn oil

This is high-quality oil, comes in a bottle of 100ml, however, please note that it's not pure sea buckthorn oil.

Diveevo Sea Buckthorn oil is diluted with Sunflower seeds oil. If you see this oil somewhere claiming it's 100% pure, do not believe the source. Diluted doesn't exactly mean bad. This is a very good quality oil, especially for skin care but might be a bit weak to use as a supplement for gastritis.

So, if the purpose for you to treat gastritis or other health problems you may consider buying pure Sea buckthorn oil with higher % of carotenoids. The manufacturer of Diveevo oil doesn't state % of carotenoids in the oil.  Nevertheless, Diveevo oil is super popular in Russia with different skin care gurus.

#2.  Birch Tar soap.

Birch Tar soap
Tar is known for its very unique properties which help in many skin conditions. Many medicated anti-itching, anti-dandruff shampoos contain tar in their ingredients list. 

Besides that, tar is pretty good at fighting acne because it has very good antiseptic qualities, plus it tends to dry out pimples which leads to faster healing. 

There are 2 common types of tar: BIRCH tar and PINE tar. The most common type of tar soap on the USA market is pine tar, however, Birch tar is most common in Europe and Russia.

Here is very natural Birch tar soap which you must try if you have any skin conditions.

It doesn't contain any dyes or preservatives.

#3.  Altay Mumye (Shilajit)
"Golden Mumijo" by Evalar (20 tablets)

Shilajit is almost unknown for people outside of Russia/ ex-USSR countries and India because it can only be found on the Caucasus, Altay, and Tibet Mountains. 

Research suggested that mumijo has antiseptic and stimulant properties, so it tends to increase wound healing rate and help people restore after surgeries faster. 

Shilajit is also suitable as a dietary supplement to enrich body with minerals and vitamins as well as protect it from toxins. 

GreenEye Trading offers high quality purified Shilajit from famous Russian brand "Evalar".
