The grain has been prized (and was even considered sacred) by the Incan people for millennia. Known as the “golden grain”, it’s rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fat–it’s a wholeDeveloped by Jeanette Thottrup, founder of Borgo Santo Pietro–the to-die-for, luxury Italian countryside retreat which includes a five-star boutique hotel, spa, organic farm, Michelin-starred restaurant and cooking school (phew!)–Seed to Skin believes in the power of ingredients. Throughout the product line, you will find herbs, honey, and sheep’s milk sourced directly from the brand’s certified organic farm at Borgo Santo Pietro in the heart of Tuscany. What they don’t grow themselves comes from a highly selective group of environmentally conscious micro-producers and wild foragers on land and at sea.
Going beyond the purist appeal of natural ingredients, Seed to Skin combines the power of nature’s curative properties with the results-driven efficiency of advanced science, utilizing an advanced molecular delivery system sized to penetrate even the deepest layers. Dubbed Green Molecular Science, each product is made to affect the skin on a cellular level using herbal extracts abundant in antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that act to support cellular regeneration as well as to repair the skin from the inside out.
“I have always loved the integrity of natural skincare, and have studied the healing powers of plants, but with Seed To Skin, I wanted to see how far I could push the efficacy of plant extracts with the help of science,” says Thottrup of the thinking behind the line she created with the help of cosmetic scientist Dr. Anna Buonocore. “Plants themselves can deliver potent benefits to the skin, but using the correct extraction methods and formulations is vital.”
Committed to efficacy, quality control, and traceability, the line is entirely produced at Seed to Skin’s state-of-the-art laboratory without a single step of production outsourced to third parties. Instead, all of the products are individually handmade onsite and assigned their own batch numbers. Free from fillers, parabens, synthetic preservatives, and artificial color or fragrance, the line is also finished in their signature eco-friendly, green glass jars that are filled by hand at Borgo. The jars can be recycled or reused.
