Seedpower Body Care Review & Giveaway

Contest is closed. Congratulations to Angie (comment #14).

I was thrilled when a package of seedpower body care products arrived. I am accustomed to receiving kid products for review, so it was finally my chance to be pampered!

I first learned about seed through a contest I entered for a sponsorship to BlogHer ’10. I immediately connected with this family after reading their story. In the process of ridding their home of chemicals and focusing more on the environment, they decided to launch a 100% natural brand of personal care products.

They already knew the health benefits of wine and the idea of using the natural byproducts of wine-making fit perfectly with their environmental awareness. They began working with a microbiologist and confirmed real scientific benefits: grape seeds are intrinsically concentrated with antioxidants and essential fatty acids promoting healthy skin.

What an amazing journey this family has had! I know you’re probably thinking their story sounds neat, but how are the products?

Here are my thoughts on the products I sampled:

  • Lathering Shampoo Bar (Invigorating Citrus Thyme): My hair is thick so I was concerned how this would work. I had never tried a shampoo bar, but was amazed at how well it lathered and rinsed clean. Per seed’s recommendation, I followed-up with my regular conditioner since my hair tangles easily. My scalp and hair felt clean and healthy.
  • Moisturizing Body Soap (Invigorating Citrus Thyme): This soap is lovely. The gently exfoliating bar feels amazing on skin, I felt refreshed and revitalized. As recommended, I followed-up with my seed body lotion.
  • Nourishing Body Lotion: I sampled the Invigorating Citrus Thyme, Restful Lavender Sage (my personal favorite) as well as Unscented. This lotion does not leave you skin feeling oily or greasy, instead luxurious and soft. It absorbs quickly and leaves skin looking and feeling healthy. I personally love the scented lotions, they are not overpowering whatsoever.

Some additional exciting information about seed products:

  • paraben free
  • phthalate free
  • no synthetic preservatives
  • no petro chemicals
  • no artificial colors
  • no animal ingredients
  • not tested on animals

You can also learn more about seed on their YouTube channel.

    I have a wonderful daughter that happened to be carring some of the seed hand lotion when I needed something for my dry, rough hands. She had a small sample in her purse. She gave it to me and I applied it to my rough, sore hands. It made a huge difference. I really could tell a difference after I applied it to my hands. Thank you daughter. It was wonderful.
