10 Natural Ingredients for Glowing Skin

January 30, 2018

Do you have the dull skin doldrums? It happens! As we age, skin loses its natural radiance. Let Seed help you get the look of glowing, healthier skin with these ten must-have ingredients. Your complexion will thank you!

1. D'Orientine S

D’Orientine S is a unique, patented wrinkle fighter derived from date palm extract. Seven natural compounds present in date palm work in synergy to improve skin appearance. You will love how it brightens and replenishes the skin over time.

Find it in our Extra Moisturizing Face Cream.

 

2. Vitamin C 

Vitamin C plays a key role in collagen synthesis. Over time, this may lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps to fight free radical damage. According to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, Vitamin C may help to prevent and correct hyperpigmentation spots caused by sun damage. Over time, skin may look brighter, more refreshed and healthier with Vitamin C.

Find it in our Advanced Botanicals Daily Moisturizer.

3. Argan Oil

Argan Oil is abundant in vitamins to improve skin elasticity, boasting triterpens, which aid in cell restructuring and can slow down the cell aging process.

Find it in our Extra Moisturizing Face Cream.

 

4. Niacinamide

Niacinamide is one of those really special multi-tasking skin care ingredients. Backed by years of scientific research, niacinamide is often recommended for acne sufferers, as it is often used to help give pores a smaller appearance thanks to the anti-inflammatory benefits. This vitamin also helps to improve skin clarity, and helps skin cells to produce more collagen, which gives skin a plumper, younger appearance.It's also moisturizing without being greasy, making it perfect for just about every type of skin!

Find it in our Advanced Botanicals Daily Moisturizer.

5. Sunflower Seed Oil

 This oil is rich in something called Sesamol, which is a potent antioxidant with the ability to help minimize sun damage. Oleic acid (an essential fatty acid) and Phytosterols are present too. These help plump the skin, which gives it a glowing, healthy look. You will also find Vitamins A & K in sunflower seed oil.

Find it in many of our Seed products!

 

6. Kelp 

Sea Kelp Bioferment is an ingredient that nearly all dermatologists and estheticians I know swear by. Its high concentration of algin and other bionutrients help deliver superior oil free moisturizing benefits as it cools and refreshes, but it delivers nutrients to the skin.

Find it in our Advanced Botanicals Daily Moisturizer.

7. Cucumber 

When you think about cucumbers and beauty, you likely picture cucumber slices over the eyes. It's been a tried & true natural puffy eye remedy for generations. What you may not realize is that it makes a really effective natural skin brightening ingredient. Cucumber contains a mineral called silica, as well as magnesium and potassium, which help promote better skin elasticity and improved clarity

Find this ingredient in our face wash, toner, and lightweight face moisturizer.

8. Lemon Essential Oil

Dull skin got you down? No worries. Lemon Essential Oil is one of nature's best skin brighteners. This beautiful citrus oil can enliven lackluster skin and improve clarity. For extra skin brightening, choose our Lemon and Grapefruit Blend for your face wash and moisturizer.

9. Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit Essential Oil is abundant in natural Vitamin C, plus it is an effective antioxidant. This protective ingredient has skin regenerating properties to give skin a refreshed and renewed look. For extra skin brightening, choose our Lemon and Grapferuit Blend for your face wash and moisturizer.

10. Abyssinian Seed Oil

Abyssinian Seed Oil is rich in both Linoleic and Linolenic Acids, which are anti-inflammatory, skin conditioning, and cell regenerative. While it is highly moisturizing, it is fast absorbing and never sticky on the skin.

Find it in our Extra Moisturizing Face Cream.

What does non-comedogenic really mean?
What does non-comedogenic really mean?

November 06, 2018

We've talked about common beauty buzzwords before. Terms like hypoallergenic, natural, and chemical-free are thrown around without having much meaning at all. In fact, there is no regulation of these terms and they can be used to make the product more enticing without any repercussions.

One of the most commonly used buzzwords in beauty and skin care is "Non-Comedogenic".

The medical definition of comedogenic is tending to clog pores especially by the formation of blackheads. Non-comedogenic, in skin care speak, implies that a product will not block pores, leading to acne breakouts. It's a term slapped on product bottles with wild abandon in the beauty industry.

Health Benefits of taking a bath from Seed Body Care
The Health Benefits of Taking a Bath

October 30, 2018

Baths are steeped in tradition, from heated baths in Rome to enjoying cool baths in Scandinavia. Most of us associate baths as being either for young children or for those taking long, pampering bubble baths for those rare "take me away" experiences. There are many health benefits to enjoying a bath, though.

1. Taking a warm bath at night can help you get a better sleep.

Once you have stepped into your warm bath, you immediately feel calmer and more relaxed. Did you know that science tells us there is another reason baths help you feel a bit better, though? Do you know that cooler feeling you experience stepping out of the tub, leaving the warm water behind? When that colder air hits your skin, your brain releases something you may have heard of before: Melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that helps to lull you off to Dream Land a bit more easily.
