The Many Benefits of Coconut Oil

August 22, 2017

Coconut Oil -- This natural ingredient has been getting lots of press lately for claims of its ability to do everything from repairing split ends and treating Candida to preventing belly fat. Why the hype?

Today, we're taking a look at the many benefits of coconut oil for skin. A favorite ingredient of holistic health practitioners, coconut oil offers many skin care benefits.

Seed shares the many skin and beauty benefits of natural coconut oil

  • Coconut oil moisturizes the skin. It is composed of saturated fats. In skin care, these fats help the skin retain moisture and create a supple feel.
  • Coconut oil protects, too. Abundant in Vitamin E, coconut oil contains antioxidant properties. Applying coconut oil may help fight environmental damage.
  • Coconut oil may offer some anti-aging benefits. Many believe that coconut oil is an effective anti-aging ingredient. In regions where coconuts are readily available, natives use the oil as an all-natural wrinkle fighting cream. In fact, it is often the only skin care product used.
  • Coconut oil is also rich in protein, which may aid in tissue repair and improve cellular health.
  • Many people with eczema say that coconut oil helps to combat the itching associated with this skin condition.

There are many ways to incorporate coconut oil into your beauty routine. In fact, you will find it in almost all of our Seed Face and Body Care products because we appreciate its many benefits!

 

Helpful Tip from Seed:

When you are product shopping and reading the labels, it may say Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride instead of the words "Coconut Oil."

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.
