The Best Essential Oils for the Face

September 08, 2017

We've discussed the many benefits of essential oils over the years here on the Seed blog. We haven't really talked about their different facial care benefits, though. We offer different types of facial care formulas, as skin is never one size fits all. 

Seed has the best essential oils for facial skincare

You may have noticed that we offer essential oil blends in addition to our ultra gentle fragrance free cleansers and moisturizers. In addition to adding a light and natural aroma, the essential oils serve a purpose. Today, we're going to talk about our favorite essential oils for the face here at Seed.

When selecting your Advanced Botanicals Facial Cleanser and Advanced Botanicals Facial Moisturizer, we are pleased to offer these options:

Fragrance Free, for those with very sensitive skin
 
If you are not very sensitive, we really recommend our Essential Oils blends. Choose these based on your main skin concerns.
Seed recommends lemon and grapefruit for dull skin
Essential Oils for Dull Skin -- It happens to all of us. As we age, our skin tends to lack the same clarity and even glow associated with our youth. In fact, you told us that this is one of your main skin concerns. There are two essential oils we have chosen in our brightening formula for duller skin: Lemon and Grapefruit. In addition to providing the skin with a more radiant appearance, lemon may help to gradually fade brown spots, while grapefruit oil contains a natural source of alpha hydroxy acids to give skin new life.
Rosemary and Lemongrass for Combination and Oily Skin
Essential Oils for Combination and Oily Skin -- You want moisturized, healthy and soft skin. You do not want an oil slick. We totally understand that! Lemongrass and Rosemary essential oils are the perfect blend for combination/oily skin types. Lemongrass has natural astringent and skin healing properties, while rosemary is antibacterial and helps control excess sebum.
Essential Oils for Dry Skin Types -- Whether your skin is just slightly dry or whether it is parched, Palmarosa essential oil can help. Known for being a skin balancing oil, it is ideal for caring for skin concerns such as eczema and psoriasis. Palmarosa is also nourishing and many believe it has cell renewal benefits.

The Skin Care Benefits of Green Tea
The Skin Care Benefits of Green Tea

August 13, 2018

Green Tea is a powerhouse antioxidant which has been shown to significantly promote collagen synthesis. It may also help to slow down the skin glycation process.

Choosing body care products formulated with Green Tea can help minimize the signs of skin aging caused by dietary indiscretions such as excess sugar consumption, which causes skin glycation. What is glycation? Simply put, it is the process of sugar proteins damaging the collagen and elastin in the skin. Too much sugar ages your skin, according to scientific research.

Green Tea is protective.

The EGCG in Green Tea also helps protect against free radicals. Free radicals not only impact your health, but they negatively impact your skin. UV damage, smoke and other pollutants can wreak havoc on your skin, accelerating the aging process and damaging cells. This damage causes collagen and elastin to break down, making you look older, as we just mentioned with the glycation process.

The same thing happens day in and day out in the health and beauty niche.
