Ingredients you will be missing out on when you switch from your drugstore body cream to Seed

March 20, 2017

Still using drugstore body cream?

Seed Body Cream without mineral oil

What will happen when you make the switch to Seed? Good question! First of all, you will very likely be bidding farewell to less than stellar ingredients, including Diazolidinyl Urea and Mineral Oil.

Diazolidinyl Urea is a formaldehyde releasing preservative with many questions surrounding its safety. In fact, it scores a 6 in the Skin Deep Database. I really encourage you to take a look at the link, as it contains quite a bit of information on the ingredient:

  • Human skin allergen and toxicant (per the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Assessments)
  • Limited evident of links to cancer (per IARC, the International Agency for Research on Cancer)

Mineral Oil is a crude oil derivative. In other words, it's a petrochemical.

  • Considered "expected to be toxic or harmful" (per the Environment Canada Domestic Substance List)
  • Strong evidence suggesting it is a human immune and respiratory toxicant or allergen (per Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics)

Yes, you'll be parting ways with ingredients like those. Have no fear of missing out. Seed Body Cream nourishes with naturally plant-based ingredients like grapeseed, shea butter, sunflower, and coconut oil. 🌱🌻🍇

It's naturally pampering, softening & luxurious.

5 Ways the Sun Impacts the Skin
5 Ways the Sun Impacts the Skin

June 23, 2020

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.

Natural Sunburn Relief Tips from Seed
Natural Sunburn Relief Tips from Seed

June 11, 2020

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.
