Monthly Roundup: What's Trending in Industry News?

July 05, 2016

Seed July Monthly Roundup Blog

 

Today on the Seed blog: it's the Monthly Roundup. Our Roundup comes near the beginning of each month when I examine the most recently trending stories of interest on the subjects of beauty, skin care, health and wellness, aromatherapy, and more.

So what's trending right now?

Seed talks about the unhealthy ingredients in hand sanitizer.

  • The FDA has concerns over ingredients in hand sanitizers, prompting an investigation. The FDA is taking a deeper look at three key ingredients found in hand sanitizers and hand cleansing wipes because of concerns that they may be harmful to pregnant woman and children. The ingredients in question are ethanol (or ethyl alcohol), isopropyl alcohol and benzalkonium chloride. The last time the FDA reviewed these antiseptic ingredients was in the 1970s, so a closer look is warranted as we are now able to take a closer look at how ingredients may have a health impact. At Seed, rest assured we use NONE of these ingredients. We are very transparent about the healthy ingredient we use and fully disclose them on our website. Additionally, our ingredients (and their scores) can be found in the Skin Deep Database.

 

    • Interest in natural skin care and anti-aging products continues to grow. Mintel, a global leader in the market research arena, reports that there is a growing interest in natural ingredients in facial care because lifestyle trends tend to carry over into personal care. In other words, when people are more interested about healthy eating, mindfulness, stress reduction and self care, they are more inclined to let that interest in "clean" and healthy living be what they are seeking in terms of ingredients. Says Shannon Romanowski at Mintel, "Consumers are embracing healthy, holistic living, and our research shows that these lifestyle changes are driving the facial skincare and anti-aging market."

  • Consumers want to have personalized product recommendations and customized products, say researchers at Kline. At Seed, we understand and we agree!

The Many Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil

May 22, 2018

Seed only uses 100% pure lavender essential oil in our plant-based lavender skin care products. This aromatherapy and wellness favorite boasts many aromatherapeutic and skincare benefits backed by sound scientific research.

Lavender, or Lavandula Angustifolia, is commonly grown throughout Europe, particularly in Bulgaria, France, and England. It has a sweet floral, fresh aroma, is herbaceous and may even be slightly camphorous. This slightly astringent essential oil works well on its own or can be used in blends to enhance its effects.

Jojoba Seed Oil has many skin care benefits. Why is Jojoba good for the skin? Let's learn more about this amazing ingredient.

 

What is Jojoba Seed Oil

First of all, the name Jojoba Oil is a little bit misleading. Jojoba Oil is not really
an oil in the traditional sense. It is actually a wax ester. In science speak, a wax ester is an ester of a fatty acid and a fatty alcohol. There are many naturally occurring wax esters. Beeswax, for example, is comprised of around 75% wax esters. Jojoba Seed Oil is 97% wax esters.

Meaningful Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is not about big ticket gifts or an elaborate arrangement sent from the florist. The greatest gift you can give a person is your gratitude. Making someone feel loved and appreciated is not something that can be ordered online and shipped through Amazon Prime. Don’t wait for “later” or a “more convenient time” to show your gratitude for the people you love.

What can you do? We have some ideas that we would like to share today.
