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.

Do you still use shaving cream from the drugstore?
Take a look at the back of the canister when you use it next time. Chances are, Triethanolamine and Propane are near the top of the ingredients listing.
- Triethanolamine is an emulsifier and pH adjuster; can be especially hazardous when combined with Diazolidinyl Urea. Studies have shown that a large number of cosmetics with TEA (short for Triethanolamine) are contaminated with Nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic. (source)
- Propane, a hydrocarbon, is a propellant. It helps give the product its mousse-like fluffy foam. It is extremely sensitizing to the lungs in moderate doses. It can be highly irritating to the skin, nasal passages and mucus membranes. More than 6,500 studies have been conducted on propane. It is a skin, lung, and eye irritant. (source)
We have shared many "hacks" using our products over the years. Before we had lip products, Rebecca would apply our body cream to her chapped lips. Before we came out with facial care, I used our fragrance free hand cream on dry patches. I use fragrance free body oil on my eye lashes to keep them shiny and as a cuticle oil, too.
Can Seed products be used on the hair? Yes, absolutely!
Our friend, Tori, uses our Soft Balm on her hair and Susan, one of our valued customers, shares this about our Body Oil:
"You should really include in your summary that this wonderful product is also amazingly healing for dry, brittle and frizzy hair! It has made a remarkable difference where no other product has. Thank you for commitment for excellence!"
Let's take a look at why people keep sharing their love of Seed for helping improve the look and condition of their hair.
Let's call this one Face Washing for Beginners - or maybe Face Washing 101. Sound silly? On the surface, it likely sounds ridiculous, but the fact is that most people are not washing their face the right way.
