10 better ingredients for your healthiest skin ever

10 better ingredients for your healthiest skin ever

Better ingredients are the key to healthier, smoother looking summer skin. Skin is the body's largest organ -- one that is both unique and complex. That is why your skin needs ingredients that nurture, pamper, and help restore. 

Not all skin care ingredients are created equally, so it is important that you are choosing ones that truly can benefit the skin. We're breaking it down for you and sharing 10 better ingredients for your best skin ever.

First, it all begins with a seed. Our natural seed nutrient blends harness the incredible power of a tiny seed. We believe in -- and have seen firsthand -- the power of plant based ingredients. Nature offers so many beautiful, potent ingredients that really can't be compared to a synthetic item created in a laboratory.

Better ingredients we love

Grape seed oil

Why has grape seed oil been used in Europe for centuries as a beauty staple? Quite simply, because it is amazing. Not only is grape seed oil cell regenerative, but it also contains an abundance of Omega 6 fatty acids, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Sunflower seed oil

Sunflower seed oil face moisturizer from Seed is antioxidant rich and plant based

Rich in antioxidants, sunflower seed oil is highly emollient without feeling sticky or greasy. Sunflower seed contains Vitamins A, C, and D, as well as gamma alpha linoleic acids (GLA). All are amazingly beneficial to the skin, helping to brighten, protect, and prevent the premature signs of aging.

Niacinamide

Also known as Vitamin B3, niacinamide is an ingredient that has so many benefits for every skin type. It's powerful and versatile. As it is an anti-inflammatory ingredient, it helps calm and soothe sensitive skin. It also has been found to help to alleviate many types of acne. Other benefits: Niacinamide can help to visibly diminish the appearance of large pores, fine lines, skin dullness, and also helps to even out skin tone. 

Abyssinian seed oil

This luxurious 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.

Argan oil

Argan oil antiaging face cream from Seed also contains abyssinian and D'Orientine S

Commonly referred to in skin care circles as "liquid gold", 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.

Hyaluronic Acid

Think of this as a moisture magnet. Hyaluronic acid is like a thirst quencher for your skin! This special ingredient can hold 1000 times its weight in water (yes, you read that right) and gives skin a youthful radiance while being as light as a feather on the skin.

Cucumber fruit extract

Cucumber Fruit Extract is simply the extract of the fruit of the cucumber. It is ideal for all skin types, as it has astringent properties, while being emollient and soothing. It nourishes and softens the skin. It is perfect for after-sun skin care, too. Rich in minerals, sulfur and potassium to provide myriad skin benefits.

Shea butter


Studies show that the natural cinnamic acid present in shea butter is a powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient, helping to aid in skin healing. Shea butter is highly moisturizing, making it ideal for even very dry skin. It is ultra rich and deeply emollient, plus it has many natural fatty acids and can penetrate deeply into the skin instead of just sitting on the surface.

Apricot kernel oil

Rich in Vitamin K, apricot kernel oil is highly nourishing and contains an abundance of skin pampering ingredients like Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Omega 6 fatty acids. Apricot oil is one of our favorite better ingredients for the skin because it is lightweight, yet penetrates deeply to truly provide nourishment to the skin. It is also known for its skin healing properties. Apricot oil is also firming and toning, thanks to the presence of GLA.

Jojoba seed oil

We recently mentioned the many benefits of jojoba oil here on the Seed blog. Jojoba is ideal for oily skin because it is able to draw out excess sebum. It almost "tricks" the skin, so it does not produce more. Jojoba oil, in fact, is often used to help conquer skin breakouts because it has a balancing effect on sebum production. Jojoba Oil has soothing benefits, helping to calm the side effects of everything from Eczema to chapped lips.

Better ingredients -- because YOU deserve better

Our list of better ingredients could go on and on thanks to the wonder of the seed. These little gems provide us with so many skin care ingredients that are ripe with anti-aging benefits, moisturizing benefits, and restorative benefits.
