Seed Year in Review: A Look Back at Our 9th Year

2018 was a big year here at Seed. We celebrated our 9th (NINTH!) year, added even more precious ingredients to our natural face and body care lineup, offered new packaging, revamped our website for an even more seamless shopping experience, started offering limited edition scents, and launched Soft Balm. We thank you for being part of our 2018 and look forward to celebrating 2019 -- our tenth year!

Let's take a look at some of our 9 favorite blog posts, why don't we?

1. The skin care benefits of hyaluronic acid

If you were to chat with your favorite esthetician or dermatologist about their favorite ingredient to combat dry skin, they will likely say that it is hyaluronic acid. In this blog post, we are sharing the many benefits of hyaluronic acid (which isn't actually an acid in a traditional sense).

2. 10 ingredients you need to be using now

Can we let you in on a secret? There are 10 ingredients we swear by for healthy and glowing skin. What ingredients do we consider skin care must haves in your beauty arsenal? Read on for the ten best skin care ingredients.

3.  Is water causing your dry, itchy skin?

Your skin is itchy. No matter how much your moisturize, it still is dry and irritated. What is causing this concern? It may just be your water. Seed explains how the water you bathe with may be the cause of your skin troubles.

4. How does diet affect the skin?

You are what you eat. When it comes to skin health, the foods you consume may play a role in the appearance of your skin. In this blog post about nutrition and the skin, we take a look at the facts and myths about diet and complexion.

5. Vitamin C: Why Your Skin Needs It

In this top skin care blog post, we are sharing all of the amazing benefits your skin will see after using products containing Vitamin C. From skin brightening to improved texture and clarity, it's no wonder we love this antioxidant so much!

6.  The Many Benefits of Lavender 

It's no secret that lavender is one of our most favorite essential oils. Why? Read our special blog post all about lavender and its many health, beauty, and wellness benefits.

7. Winter Skin Care Tips

We all know that winter's harsh elements can wreak havoc on your skin. Chapped lips and dryness are common skin care woes this time of year, so we compiled our favorite winter skin care best practices for you.

8. Best skin care tips for oily and acne prone skin

Many of you have been seeking ways to help prevent acne breakouts and how to minimize oily skin. In this blog post, we share common myths about acne (no, your face is not dirty) and share ways to help care for oily and acne prone skin.

9. Is alcohol bad for your skin?

We tackled a common skin care myth - that alcohol is bad for the skin. While many people believe that alcohol should be avoided because of skin dryness, this is a popular myth. Many alcohols are actually skin emollients, offering skin softening benefits. Some alcohols do cause dryness and irritation, though, so we share everything you need to know about skin care products and alcohol in our popular blog post.

 

As we say goodbye to 2018, we want to wish you a Happy New Year and share our sincere wishes for much health and happiness in 2019.

The best product for shaving? Hint: It's not from the drugstore!
The best product for shaving? Hint: It's not from the drugstore!

May 14, 2019

Do you still use shaving cream from the drugstore?

Take a look at the back of the canister when you use it next time. Chances are, Triethanolamine and Propane are near the top of the ingredients listing.

  • Triethanolamine is an emulsifier and pH adjuster; can be especially hazardous when combined with Diazolidinyl Urea. Studies have shown that a large number of cosmetics with TEA (short for Triethanolamine) are contaminated with Nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic. (source)
  • Propane, a hydrocarbon, is a propellant. It helps give the product its mousse-like fluffy foam. It is extremely sensitizing to the lungs in moderate doses. It can be highly irritating to the skin, nasal passages and mucus membranes. More than 6,500 studies have been conducted on propane. It is a skin, lung, and eye irritant. (source)

The 5 best natural ingredients to tame dry, frizzy hair

We have shared many "hacks" using our products over the years. Before we had lip products, Rebecca would apply our body cream to her chapped lips. Before we came out with facial care, I used our fragrance free hand cream on dry patches. I use fragrance free body oil on my eye lashes to keep them shiny and as a cuticle oil, too.

Can Seed products be used on the hair? Yes, absolutely!

Our friend, Tori, uses our Soft Balm on her hair and Susan, one of our valued customers, shares this about our Body Oil:

"You should really include in your summary that this wonderful product is also amazingly healing for dry, brittle and frizzy hair! It has made a remarkable difference where no other product has. Thank you for commitment for excellence!"

 

Let's take a look at why people keep sharing their love of Seed for helping improve the look and condition of their hair.
