It is an actual cosmetic and health breakthrough. Sciadonic acid, derived from the seed of a conifer tree, has the ability to reduce inflammation from the inside out. 30 years of scientific research have gone into the production of SciaEssentials Delta-5TM oil. Now available for the first time to the general public and approved for cosmetic use, you will not believe all the ways that it can enhance your beauty.
Topical Delta-5 Benefits the Skin’s Beauty
Used topically, you can feel the oil warming your skin as it is massaged in. Appropriate for use anywhere on the body that is suffering from dry skin, a rash or irritation, a burn, acne, or cut. It is also great for scars, wrinkle control, and as a lip enhancer. The trick to all of this is elegantly simple. Sciadonic acid, which comes in the form of Delta-5, works by alleviating inflammation. Inflammation is the biggest culprit in the appearance of your skin’s flaws and plays a major role in many physical ailments and chronic inflammation is the underlying cause of most diseases facing modern society.
Sciadonic acid (SCI) is a unique, anti-inflammatory, eco-friendly, fatty acid derived from conifer species of plants, consumed by indigenous populations and in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It was removed from Western diets during industrialization. Dr. Berger has spent the last 30 years studying SCI. Over the course of 22 studies in various rodent- and animal cell models of oral- and topical inflammation, SCI decreased inflammation more than fish oil when compared, with a novel mechanism of action.
SCI and other special fatty acids, [have the] goal of reducing our rampant chronic inflammation. SCI can be used alone or in combination with- other nutritional oils (such as fish oil), anti-oxidants, and drugs- to combat chronic and diverse forms of inflammation and associated symptoms (pain, discomfort, etc.).

How to Use Delta-5 on Your Skin
When applied topically, 1-3 drops of Delta-5 oil should be placed on the affected area of dry, itchy, red, irritated, injured, or wrinkled skin. The oil can also be used to maintain good skin tone and for anti-aging benefits, up to 3 times a day, as needed. It should be spread evenly in a thin covering over the skin. Scientific research, case studies and testimonials show that this amazing oil will enhance beauty in the following ways:
- It can help to guard your skin against the impacts of pollution and UV radiation and repair damage caused by the environment
- It can prevent fine lines and wrinkles and reverse those and other signs of aging
- It provides anti-inflammatory benefits and can reduce the effects of rosacea and acne
- It can reduce skin redness and make it less dry and flaky
- It can help your complexion and give your skin a beautiful glow
Sciadonic acid has a positive impact on the skin’s lipid layer, which contributes to its overall health and wellness, making you look more beautiful and feel better.
The skin is a very peculiar organ, displaying biochemical and immunological features specific for a compartment continuously exposed to external and endogenous stimuli. Skin lipid composition is a mixture derived from keratinocyte membranes and sebum, including unique compounds such as squalene or specific bioactive sphingolipids, not only providing protection from environmental stressors, but also giving rise to by-products able to trigger, sustain, or terminate cutaneous inflammatory processes.

Internal Benefits of Delta-5
Many people are combining the oil with other oils and products to increase the benefits they get. This is particularly true when the oil is consumed. According to the National Institutes of Health, “evidence is mounting that omega-3 fatty acids can moderate inflammation in the body and help reduce the risk and symptoms of kidney disease, heart disease and arthritis.” The largest source of supplemental fatty acids comes from fish oil, which when combined with Delta-5 can enhance the effects.
Conifers are pine trees and produce seeds inside of their cones. Those seeds are well known in the health supplement and natural food industries for being very nutritious and having quite a few health benefits. These include:
- Weight loss
- Improvement of cardiovascular health
- Eye health
- Skin health
- Increased immunity
- Respiratory health improvement
Delta-5, which is extracted from conifer seeds, can have these benefits when consumed. When combined with other products that are intended to deliver benefits, the anti-inflammatory properties it carries are added. For instance, CBD oil, which is a THC-free derivative of the marijuana plant, is recognized for its potential help people who suffer depression, anxiety, and certain neurological illnesses. Fatty acids and antioxidants have been shown to have a positive benefit in psychology and in neurology (Source).
Research has clearly established a link between omega-3 fatty acids and general health, particularly cardiovascular health. Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Brain and Neurological Health is the first book to focus exclusively on the role of omega-3 fatty acids on general brain health….Research has established links between omega-3 fatty acids and the developing brain, aging, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis. This book encompasses some of the most recent research, including the role of omega-3 fatty acid supplements on hippocampal neurogenesis, substantia nigra modulation, migraine headaches, the developing brain in animals, sleep, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Nuts and seeds tend to be the best sources, with the highest concentration of omega 3 fatty acids. Delta-5 is no exception.
