When will we be adding a Cherry Blossom Body Cream? Thank you for asking!
Looking for a new scented body care product for spring? Whether it's Citrus Fusion, our beautiful grapefruit and ylang ylang blend or many other possibilities, we have you covered for spring. We'd like to take a moment to share a question we've been asked in the past, as it bears repeating:
When will we have a Cherry Blossom Body Cream?
Most likely, never. Don't get me wrong, it sounds lovely. So, Why?
We have Fragrance Free, we have Lavender, we have Lemongrass, we have Eucalyptus, we have....a dozen essential oils which you can enjoy purely, or in your selected combination, but we don't have synthetic fragrance.
I wish there were a beautiful cherry blossom essential oil. But I don't see it at any of our reputable essential oil suppliers. Or peony (wouldn't that be amazing?) While there are always advances in what talented distillers can pull from natural botanicals, until they do, please know that fragrances like melon or cherry blossom or many fruits and flowers are just - please forgive me for being so frank: fake. Yes, new essential oils do happen, but overall, what some try to sell as an essential oil is really a fragrance oil. And there's a big difference. (read our article here)
Why should you care if it's fake? Well, maybe it doesn't matter to you. Me? I started getting headaches when I was a teenager from this beautiful perfume I loved from the department store. Come to find out, that isn't that uncommon. Here's another good reason to avoid synthetic fragrance: It is the #1 topical skin allergen. Unexplained rashes, eczema? I'd start with clearing out synthetic fragrance! Phthalates, found in synthetic fragrance? That's a whole other article!

Argan oil is one of the most promising -- and most proven -- ingredients in skin care. While it is not a new ingredient, it is an important one which has stood the test of time.
Today we're sharing 5 key benefits of this oil. Although it is not as well known as coconut oil or jojoba oil, argan is truly a special oil.
Argan oil, found in both Seed Soft Balm and Seed Advanced Botanicals Extra Moisturizing Face Cream, contains more antioxidant and cell regenerative properties than olive oil, grape seed oil and avocado oil combined.
We're going to spotlight the special ingredients used in this serum so you can learn why each one was chosen to be used in our formulation.
This week's Ingredient Spotlight is on Kakadu Plum.
What is Kakadu Plum Extract?
Kakadu Plum (Terminalia Ferdinandiana) is a sour green fruit that is native to Australia. Small in size, this fruit contains 55 times more Vitamin C than an orange. While it is hard to fine, Kakadu Plum has been creating quite a buzz lately in the skin care industry because of its many benefits. It is safe to say that using Kakadu Plum is not just a passing fad. You'll be seeing a lot more of this ingredient as more and more solid research comes out.
This is a common question people have when seeking out a new facial moisturizer, especially those who have oily or combination skin. Back before people became more ingredients savvy, they heeded the advice "If you have oily skin, you have to choose oil-free products."
