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

You sit staring at a computer screen all day at work. You text back and forth. You answer emails. You’d think that once the work day is over and the dinner dishes have been cleared that you’d be ready to sit and relax.
The reality, though, is that most people are still plugged into their phones in the evening. Texts continue. Work emails are read and answered long after the work day has ended. Then you just have to check your Facebook feed, order a new pair of shoes, pin recipes and DIY projects over on Pinterest, and share the latest photo on Instagram. And then there is the stressful reading of political posts that appear day after day. Honestly, it can be stressful!
It is almost as if we panic at the thought of missing out on something important if we put the phone down. What would happen if you stayed away from social media for an evening?
Would it be the end of the world? Absolutely not.
Have you ever noticed tiny white bumps that look like they are right under your skin? Perhaps you have. Milia can appear around the eyes, forehead, nose, and cheeks. They seem to linger and are resistant to most typical acne treatments. Just what is milia and how do you get rid of it? Let's find out!
What causes milia?
Milia can occur for several reasons. I know that I have heard so many women say, "but I wash my face thoroughly." The truth is that it is not because your skin isn't clean enough.
Our skin naturally sloughs off dead skin cells. Sometimes, though, the skin doesn't shed those cells and what happens is that sebum and keratin will get trapped underneath the epidermis. When this happens, they build up and get lodged in sweat glands and hair follicles rather than being shed. Before you know it, cysts form and you'll notice those little white bumps that do not seem to go away.
There are several skin care ingredients that may contribute to milia. I will share those with you in a moment.
Many parts of the country are about to see dangerously cold temperatures, thanks to the Polar Vortex this week. In fact, many meteorologists are saying that we could be experiencing some of the coldest weather in years. The brutal cold and snow can easily wreak havoc on your skin, so we thought this would be a great time to share some of our Polar Vortex skin care tips with you.
1. Layer your skin care.
Think of how we dress in this weather to keep warm: by wearing layers. Layering your skin care offers many benefits. Our skin is particularly susceptible to the harsh winter elements. Dehydration is common. Help protect the skin and lock in moisture by applying a dry body oil followed by a rich body cream or balm. Doing so will help seal all of the beneficial butters and plant oils into your skin, making them even more effective.
