The term Hippophae has been derived from the Greek words: “hippo” which means horse and “phaos” which means shine. In ancient Greece it has been used as animal feed, especially for horses, because it made their coat shin-ing. Added to horse feed in Ancient Greece, hippophae was considered to maintain the horses’ healthy and shiny coats. Therefore the plant known as buckthorn in English.
