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.

Dry Skin vs. Dehydrated Skin: How to Tell the Difference
Dry Skin vs. Dehydrated Skin: How to Tell the Difference

September 10, 2019

Let's talk about another case of skin care confusion. Most people think that dry skin and dehydrated skin are the same thing. In fact, when shopping for skin care products, people with dehydrated skin often buy products designed for dry skin and vice versa. The problem? Dry skin and dehydrated skin often need to be treated in very different ways.

Just how is dry skin different from dehydrated skin? Read on and find out! 

On the surface, dry skin and dehydrated skin tend to feel the same. They both feel -- well -- dry. Dry skin is a skin type, much like oily or combination skin. Dehydrated skin, however, is a skin condition.

Dry and dehydrated skin are both lacking something.

This is where the main difference comes in to play. Dry skin is lacking oil. Dehydrated skin is lacking water. Understanding which is missing is key to selecting the right skin care products.

We've all heard about the "Freshman 15." I gained about 7 pounds freshman year. I can tell you that I had many choices in the dining hall, but my mom wasn't there to make sure I ate my fruits and veggies. I loaded up on macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes. I drank soda pop instead of water. I made Pop Tarts in my dorm room and ordered pizza regularly. Eat as many fresh, whole foods as you can and drink lots of water. Your skin will benefit from this. I recommend eating lots of
