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.

If you are on the quest for healthy looking skin, this ingredient needs to be in your skin care arsenal.
Niacinamide, or Vitamin B3 (also called Nicotinic Acid) offers multiple benefits to the skin. It can help to visibly diminish the appearance of large pores, fine lines, skin dullness, and also helps to even out skin tone.
There is solid research supporting the benefits of Niacinamide.This skin vitamin is one that truly benefits nearly every skin type. Other recent research published by the editors of the Melanoma Letter suggests that niacinamide "can significantly reduce recurrences of actinic keratosis, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma in patients with a history of these lesions."
Summer means sundresses, shorts, swimwear, and exposed skin. Most of us spend more time shaving our legs to keep them silky and smooth, but end up with occasional nicks, cuts, and razor burn. We are here to share our 5 best shaving tips for a better shave this summer.
Prevent ingrown hairs with exfoliation.
We've talked about the skin care benefits of exfoliation before. Removing dead skin cells is essential, as flakes that have collected around the hair follicles will complicate your shave. If you have do not regularly exfoliate, this accumulation of dead skin cells will ultimately lead to ingrown hairs. Be sure to apply a body scrub regularly in the shower (but never right after shaving).
Don't shave right when you step into the shower.
Skin care experts agree: wait at least 3 minutes after being in the shower or tub to shave your legs. Why? It is important for the hair to be hydrated for an easier, tug-free shave. Go ahead and shampoo and condition your hair, wash your face, and then save the shave for later.
After a gray and rainy spring, it is finally beginning to feel as it should -- like we are heading into summer! 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.
