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.

Let's talk about another case of skin care confusion. Most people think that dry skin and dehydrated skin are the same thing. In fact, when shopping for skin care products, people with dehydrated skin often buy products designed for dry skin and vice versa. The problem? Dry skin and dehydrated skin often need to be treated in very different ways.
Just how is dry skin different from dehydrated skin? Read on and find out!
On the surface, dry skin and dehydrated skin tend to feel the same. They both feel -- well -- dry. Dry skin is a skin type, much like oily or combination skin. Dehydrated skin, however, is a skin condition.
Dry and dehydrated skin are both lacking something.
This is where the main difference comes in to play. Dry skin is lacking oil. Dehydrated skin is lacking water. Understanding which is missing is key to selecting the right skin care products.
Let's call it Face Washing 101. It may seem like a no-brainer, but are you washing your face properly? Maybe not.
Today, we're sharing how to wash your face the correct way.
1. Before you even think of touching your face, wash your hands.
So many of us overlook this step, but it is crucial. If you just wet your hands and apply cleanser, you will be rubbing bacteria and dirt onto your skin. By doing so, your pores may become clogged and breakouts may occur. Wash your hands thoroughly and then apply your facial care.

We've all heard about the "Freshman 15." I gained about 7 pounds freshman year. I can tell you that I had many choices in the dining hall, but my mom wasn't there to make sure I ate my fruits and veggies. I loaded up on macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes. I drank soda pop instead of water. I made Pop Tarts in my dorm room and ordered pizza regularly. Eat as many fresh, whole foods as you can and drink lots of water. Your skin will benefit from this. I recommend eating lots of
