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
Summer is officially here! After a long, very unusual spring, it is nice to get outside and relax in the summer sun.
I love the feeling of soaking up the rays, but sun smarts are essential for your skin.
The sun's UV rays can greatly impact the condition of the skin. While sitting with our faces toward the sun makes us feel so good, it is important to remember that we have to be vigilant about our sun care.
My 25 year background in skin care has shown me just how important protecting our skin from UVA and UVB rays truly is. I practice what I preach. I wear sunscreen. I moisturize. I remove my makeup at night.
I am human, though, and I make mistakes. Yesterday was one of those days. It was unusually hot here. I finished up my work after lunch and noticed that the outside temperature was 96 degrees. I was skimming the pool and made sure to put on more sunscreen before jumping in.
I was so comfortable just floating on my raft. Floating around just relaxing felt so good! I planned to be in the water for about an hour when my 14 year old jumped in. We had a blast playing baseball with a beach ball and pool noodle, making a whirlpool, and playing games. If you have a teenager, you will understand what a treat it is to enjoy one on one time just having fun with that child who normally would rather be doing something else. This extra time together during the pandemic has been a gift, because there is much more family time. We had so much fun — and before I knew it, I had been in the water for nearly three hours.
I was careful to reapply my sunscreen everywhere — but I neglected my back. And boy did I learn my lesson. I now have a blistering sunburn on about 40% of my back and it is incredibly painful. In addition to being concerned about the potential for lasting damage and cellular changes done to my skin, I am finding it hard to get comfortable. This was preventable, though.
I cannot change yesterday’s mistake, but I can help alleviate the pain and I thought I would share how you can, too, should you finding yourself in need of some sunburn relief.
What is Seed Aging Beautifully Face Serum?
Is it a serum? Is it an oil?
Well, this is an oil-based face serum. Seed Aging Beautifully Face Serum combines 100% plant-based ingredients - like Argan and Rosehip Seed Oil - to help seal in moisture without feeling heavy or greasy.
Our facial oil serum can be used alone or over your moisturizer. It features a blend of oils to hydrate, balance, and address skin concerns such as loss of elasticity, dullness or skin dryness. Oils tend to be protective, boost skin hydration, and can help tackle a loss of skin firmness. Depending on the oils used -- and this is the case with our oil blend -- it may even help those with oily and acne prone skin types.
Wait. Don't you put this on under a moisturizer?
Great question! Read on...
