A spa experience in bar form?
We believe in the importance of self care here at Seed. Pampering, carving out a bit of "me time", and enjoying a long and soothing bath or facial experience are things we love to do. Who doesn't? Sometimes, though, you just are in a hurry. Maybe you pressed snooze a couple too many times and need to be out of the shower in 5 minutes. Perhaps you are at the gym and just want to use one product.
I'd like to take a minute to talk about one of our products that I think we don't often mention enough here at Seed. It's not because it's not an amazing product, but I think that I get so excited here talking about our main body care products, lip collection, Beneficial Blends, and facial care than I tend to let this little gem slip right by me.
In reality, this one little bar contains ingredients to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and protect the skin using the best ingredients at an affordable price.
I like to think of the Seed Fragrance Free Body Bar as the ultimate multi-tasking body care product. Consider it a portable spa package all put into a bar. It's not a bar your traditional bar of soap. It's truly anything but. This little bar of fabulousness cleanses the skin naturally and without harsh ingredients like sodium laureth or lauryl sulfate. It is dye free, fragrance free, and contains many ingredients to pamper the skin.
The Important Benefits of the Seed Body Soap Bar
- Lathers lightly without stripping the skin - no sulfates, just plant-based gentle cleansers to soften and soothe without drying the skin.
- Red clay helps draw out impurities. Red clay is coveted by the experts. According to Dr. Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai in New York, "the high levels of iron oxide in red clay explain why it’s particularly useful for purifying, brightening, and strengthening the skin."
- Most natural brands use nut shells to exfoliate the skin. We do not. Nut shells can cause microscopic skin tears and should be avoided. Instead, we use pomegranate, strawberry, and apricot seeds to gently slough off dead skin cells. Exfoliation is an important step in your body care regimen. As we age, skin cell turnover slows down. Over time, dead skin cells accumulate, sitting atop the skin making it look dull, dry, and ashy. When you exfoliate the skin, you are lifting off dead skin cells, revealing a fresh and brighter skin tone.
- Grape seed Oil contains linoleic acid to help strengthen the skin, moisturize and soften. Additionally, Grape seed Extract contains potent Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins, or OPCs. OPCs contain 20 times the antioxidant power of Vitamin E and it is believed that they contain 50 times the antioxidant capabilities of Vitamin C, making them a true skin protecting powerhouse.

Also in Lately I've been paying more attention
Today is Giving Tuesday, a day when millions engage in charitable acts.
I'd like to expand on the topic of giving.
The greatest gift you can give a person, I believe, is expressing your gratitude. Making someone feel loved and appreciated is a true gift. Don’t wait for “later” or a “more convenient time” to show your gratitude for the people you love.
Whether it's your significant other, parents, friends, your child's teacher or a neighbor, wouldn't it be really amazing if you took a moment to show someone your gratitude each day?
I have some ideas for ways you can show those you care about how much you appreciate them.
Hyaluronic acid may be one of the most misunderstood ingredients in skin care. When people see the word acid, they often associate it with a component of chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid. Do not let the word acid scare you. It's not what you think it is.
Are petrolatum-based balms the key to soft lips?
What is the first thing most people reach for when their lips are feeling dry? If you answered the traditional balm for chapped lips sold at the drugstore, you're right. Unfortunately, a crude oil-derived balm is not the best choice.
It's a common misconception that these balms help deliver moisture to the lips.
Here's what Dr. Mauro C. Rumita, who specializes in esthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery says on the subject: "Contrary to what most people believe, [some] don't hydrate the lips. Instead, they seal moisture out, so lips can't absorb it."
Do you need a physical barrier like a balm can provide? Yes, in certain situations. If you are outdoors a lot and exposed to the elements, it would be best to consider a natural balm to give your lips a layer of protection from Mother Nature. While a balm does not deliver moisture into the lips, it does protect.
Our plant based Seed Soft Balm protects without the most common ingredient found in lip balm: petrolatum. Not familiar with petrolatum? Here is a link to more information from the Skin Deep Database. It includes petrolatum's common synonyms, including "mineral grease." I don't know about you, but I don't want that on my lips.
