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
Today is Giving Tuesday, a day when millions engage in charitable acts.
I'd like to expand on the topic of giving.
The greatest gift you can give a person, I believe, is expressing your gratitude. Making someone feel loved and appreciated is a true gift. Don’t wait for “later” or a “more convenient time” to show your gratitude for the people you love.
Whether it's your significant other, parents, friends, your child's teacher or a neighbor, wouldn't it be really amazing if you took a moment to show someone your gratitude each day?
I have some ideas for ways you can show those you care about how much you appreciate them.
Hyaluronic acid may be one of the most misunderstood ingredients in skin care. When people see the word acid, they often associate it with a component of chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid. Do not let the word acid scare you. It's not what you think it is.
Are petrolatum-based balms the key to soft lips?
What is the first thing most people reach for when their lips are feeling dry? If you answered the traditional balm for chapped lips sold at the drugstore, you're right. Unfortunately, a crude oil-derived balm is not the best choice.
It's a common misconception that these balms help deliver moisture to the lips.
Here's what Dr. Mauro C. Rumita, who specializes in esthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery says on the subject: "Contrary to what most people believe, [some] don't hydrate the lips. Instead, they seal moisture out, so lips can't absorb it."
Do you need a physical barrier like a balm can provide? Yes, in certain situations. If you are outdoors a lot and exposed to the elements, it would be best to consider a natural balm to give your lips a layer of protection from Mother Nature. While a balm does not deliver moisture into the lips, it does protect.
Our plant based Seed Soft Balm protects without the most common ingredient found in lip balm: petrolatum. Not familiar with petrolatum? Here is a link to more information from the Skin Deep Database. It includes petrolatum's common synonyms, including "mineral grease." I don't know about you, but I don't want that on my lips.
