Ingredients you are missing out on by switching to Seed Satin Lip Gloss
Still using drugstore lip glosses with less than stellar ingredients?
Afraid of missing out? Here's what you WILL be missing out on by switching to Seed Satin Lip Gloss:
- Polybutene - This is a plasticizer that also makes gloss sticky.
- Artificial fragrance - Considered to be a harmful ingredient. Learn more in this fragance blog post.
You don't need polymers and plasticizing agents, nor do you need harmful artificial fragrances to have a beautifully formulated lip gloss.
Instead, our lip gloss contains an abundance of healthy ingredients, such as Abyssinian Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Apricot, and more. Rather than synthetic fragrance, you can leave it fragrance free or choose 100% pure and natural Peppermint Essential Oil.

It's an often asked question of skin care professionals: "Is toner really necessary?"
In a word, yes.
I think that some people are skeptical of trying toners because they associate toner with the old SD alcohol-based astringents that used to strip skin and leave it feeling tight and dry. Many toners out there still have some less than stellar ingredients, but that's not what we're talking about.
Vitamin E is one of the most well-known antioxidants used in skin care. While it is common knowledge that Vitamin E is useful for the skin, many people are unaware of why it is beneficial. On the Seed blog today, we are sharing the clinical science behind Vitamin E and skin care, as well as ways it will help improve the appearance of your skin.
What is Vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that can help repair damaged cells. Naturally occurring Vitamin E includes eight different isoforms. These include alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta- tocopherol and alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta- tocotienol.
Vitamin E is one of the most studied skin vitamins because it was discovered so long ago. In fact, it was back in the early 1920s when Berkeley biologists Dr. Herbert Evans and Dr. Katherine Bishop made the discovery.
In the field of skin care, Vitamin E has been used for more than half a century -- and with good reason.
The leaves are changing and it's getting darker earlier and earlier. Fall is officially here. With the changing seasons comes a need to adjust your skin care routine a bit.
Autumn is a time of transition and it is the ideal time to repair and renew your skin. The recent summer temperatures -- and extra sun exposure -- likely did a bit of damage to your skin, so now is your opportunity to do a bit of repair and prep your complexion for the upcoming winter.
1. Exfoliate your skin.
Lift dead skin cells, which make your skin look ashy and dry, with a gentle exfoliant. Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in any skin care routine, yet it continues to be one of the most overlooked. Everyone needs to exfoliate.
Why? When dead skin cells are sitting on top of your skin, pores become clogged. You will likely either experience acne or your skin will just look dull and flaky (or both). Helping your skin slough off dead skin cells is essential because those clear pores will more readily absorb your other facial care products, helping them to work more effectively.
Use a gentle facial scrub or facial brush to manually exfoliate, or choose a chemical exfoliant such as AHA (alpha hydroxy acids). If you are oily or prone to blackheads, look for an exfoliant with salicylic acid (BHA).
