Ingredients you will be missing out on when you switch from your drugstore body cream to Seed
Still using drugstore body cream?
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. 🌱🌻🍇
