Ingredients you will be missing out on when you switch from drugstore moisturizer to Seed

February 27, 2017

Are you still using a drugstore facial moisturizer?
Seed facial moisturizer has better ingredients
It's time to make the switch to Seed. What will you be missing out on when you trade your current formula for our Advanced Botanicals Facial Moisturizer?

Here are 2 ingredients found in a popular drugstore face moisturizer:

1. Petrolatum - This is derived from crude oil and is a mix of hydrocarbons. It is classified as both "a high human health priority" and "expected to be toxic or harmful" per the Environment Canada Domestic Substance List. (source)
2. Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer - This is a synthetic polymer used in skin care to help bind oil and water and helps thicken formulas. It forms a film and is commonly used in coatings and adhesives such as nail glue and nail stickers. Is that something you really want to leave on your skin? (source)

Yes, you will be "missing out" on the above ingredients, but we've got your back! Here are the ingredients you will find in ours:
