Ingredients you are missing out on when you switch from drugstore body oil to Seed

February 06, 2017

What are you missing out on when you make the switch from your drugstore body oil mist to Seed Body Oil Mist?

NOFOMO Seed Body Oil versus drugstore ingredients

Let's see: two popular ingredients that you will no longer be spritzing on your skin include Dimethicone and Petrolatum.

  • Dimethicone is a cheap, silicone-based polymer. It might help skin feel soft, but tends to leave it with a coated feeling over time, often leading to skin irritation.
  • Petrolatum is a semi-solid mix of hydrocarbons derived from crude oil. Do you really want that on your skin?

So while you may be "missing out" on some less than stellar ingredients, by making the switch, your skin will be pampered with plant-based ingredients such as Grape Seed, Coconut, Sunflower & Jojoba. Nothing greasy or sticky -- just natural and healthy oils that are clean, skin softening & silky.

NOFOMO: No fear of missing out!

Seeing is believing. Here are the ingredients in a popular drugstore body oil spray:

Water, Isopropyl Myristate, Glycerin, Sorbitan Isostearate, Dimethicone, Fragrance, Avena Sativa (Oat) Straw Extract, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Tapioca Starch, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer, Stearic Acid, Dihydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Disodium Edta, Petrolatum, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid

Seed Body Oil Mist ingredients:

Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Coconut Oil), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E)

*This is the "base" recipe and 100% pure essential oils are added in depending on formula you select.

Skin Care as a Form of Self Care
Skin Care as a Form of Self Care

Did you know that having a skin care ritual is one way to engage in self care?

According to Houston dermatologist Dr. Reena Jogi, “When you do a skin care routine, you’re usually alone, in your bathroom or somewhere quiet, and it’s just you and the mirror. There’s something slightly meditative about just sitting there and taking that 10 minutes just for you.”

We've talked about the skin care benefits of having a consistent routine here on the blog before, but that actual routine has far greater benefits that reach beyond a glowing complexion.
