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.

Also in Lately I've been paying more attention
Summer is officially here! After a long, very unusual spring, it is nice to get outside and relax in the summer sun.
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.
My 25 year background in skin care has shown me just how important protecting our skin from UVA and UVB rays truly is. I practice what I preach. I wear sunscreen. I moisturize. I remove my makeup at night.
I am human, though, and I make mistakes. Yesterday was one of those days. It was unusually hot here. I finished up my work after lunch and noticed that the outside temperature was 96 degrees. I was skimming the pool and made sure to put on more sunscreen before jumping in.
I was so comfortable just floating on my raft. Floating around just relaxing felt so good! I planned to be in the water for about an hour when my 14 year old jumped in. We had a blast playing baseball with a beach ball and pool noodle, making a whirlpool, and playing games. If you have a teenager, you will understand what a treat it is to enjoy one on one time just having fun with that child who normally would rather be doing something else. This extra time together during the pandemic has been a gift, because there is much more family time. We had so much fun — and before I knew it, I had been in the water for nearly three hours.
I was careful to reapply my sunscreen everywhere — but I neglected my back. And boy did I learn my lesson. I now have a blistering sunburn on about 40% of my back and it is incredibly painful. In addition to being concerned about the potential for lasting damage and cellular changes done to my skin, I am finding it hard to get comfortable. This was preventable, though.
I cannot change yesterday’s mistake, but I can help alleviate the pain and I thought I would share how you can, too, should you finding yourself in need of some sunburn relief.
