Gluten-Free Skin Care: Grape Seed Enriched & 100% Natural

gluten free skin care
All (Seed) Products Are 100% Natural & Gluten-Free

Look what came in the mail! This cute little care package from (seed).

The story behind this company is unique. As a couple Benjamin and Rebecca were trying to detox their life and household in order to safely welcome a baby into their world. After educating themselves about healthy and non-toxic everything they came up with the idea to create their own 100% natural body products that didn’t just sound good, but actually worked.

Why the name (seed)? Well, Benjamin is a wine enthusiast and knew about a lot of the health benefits associated with wine. This led them to investigate grape seed extract.

“We began working with a microbiologist in Boulder and confirmed real scientific benefits: grape seeds, like several other seeds, are intrinsically concentrated with incredible antioxidants and essential fatty acids promoting healthy skin.”

So, that’s the short story in a…seed. ;)

I was able to enjoy personally the grapeseed enriched and 100% natural and gluten-free:

-Body Cream with Invigorating Citrus….looove the scent and lightness. Used it as a hand cream too
-Therapeutic Hand Scrubthis was a new concept for me, but I liked it.
-Healthy Hand Cream with Relaxing Lavender.I can never get enough hand cream or lavender!
-Moisturizing Body Soap with Invigorating citrus thyme….nice!
-Shaving Bar….I don’t have problems shaving, but this is a nice soap and concept.
-Conditioning Hair Shampoo Barnow this was a fun concept for me, I love the idea of using this for travel. I think this would be ideal for people with thin hair that lacks body. I have a lot of hair and I thought it was fun how BIG it made my hair. Not a look I want every day, but I think someone looking for a hair lift may really enjoy this.

    It sounded too good to be true: they use jojoba oil :(

    While it’s a commonly-used (because it’s cheap as far as oils go and it’s considered closest to sebum’s consistency) in beauty products, I (and many other people who have a lot of allergies and/ or skin problems) have problems with it. Good to note if you or anybody else after using these products a while have a reaction. Jojoba can do that for lots of sensitives.

      Bummer! It’s always something, eh?! I use jojoba oil as eye makeup remover. No problems. Yeah, I had a friend who was really sensitive to jojoba. I’m so surprised I’m not! I have to be careful with shea on my face in any form and pure shea on my body. I can get away with soaps or creams for my body with a little shea in them. Or pure shea on my hands in the Winter. Isn’t that strange?

      I’ll keep a lookout for jojoba free products for you!

        Thanks! I do fine with shea — it’s so weird the stuff that’s okay or not.

        I’m Celiac but also have allergies to a bunch of stuff (deathly allergic to agave and that was never an issue in the Midwest til about a year ago–everybody is using it now and unfortunately, it falls under the “natural sweetener” umbrella, so I can’t have anything that says THAT; may not be agave but in one case, I poisoned myself — boo!).

      Thanks so much for sharing (seed) with your readers. To clarify, jojoba seed oil is only in our (seed) hand creams, not the other products, but it is actually a rather precious oil — much more expensive than other seed based oils. We use it because it is a natural water repellant, and holds up to frequent hand washing. Thanks for all your comments — we love to hear them when we are developing products!
