Welcome to Leaf Seed Berry!
So what’s behind a name? For us, back in 2013, coming up with a name for our new venture wasn’t really that difficult. We simply thought about our favorite ingredients and started jotting down words. After some thinning out and rearranging, we came up with Leaf Seed Berry. Not the most conventional name for a business, but we thought we’d try it out.
Based in San Francisco, we’ve been selling on Etsy since 2013 and are now in the top 1% of sellers there. Feel free to visit us there to read the 2100+ positive reviews our products have received.
LEAF represents the plant leaf extracts we use in the products like the exfoliating toners, Three Tea Cleanser, Perfect Ten Serum, Mermaid Cream, and others. Green and white tea are favorites due to their strong antioxidant properties. Tea Tree oil is also a must have when dealing with problem skin.
SEED represents the various oils we use that come from fruit and vegetable seeds. The seeds go through an extraction process and what comes out is pure vitamin- and antioxidant-rich oil. The less refining the better and cold-pressed is the way to go to ensure all the beneficial properties remain in the oil. We use various seed oils in our cleansers and cleansing oils, moisturizers, scrubs, serums, and lip balms.
BERRY represents not only the oils that come from berry seeds, but also the berry extracts we incorporate into products for their strong antioxidant powers. Goji berry is a favorite and we use the extract in the toners, Mermaid Cream, Perfect Ten Serum and more. While vanilla isn’t necessarily considered a “berry,” it is a fruit and it’s what’s used in our popular Vanilla-Infused Jojoba Oil. (And it smells out-of-this-world amazing.)
Along with the name, we decided Leaf Seed Berry would make a commitment to using only the highest quality ingredients, and to keep production to “small batch” to ensure absolute freshness and effectiveness.
When we’re not whipping up products or shipping out orders, we enjoy foraging for wild mushrooms, romping through Redwood forests with Naely (the dog), doing what we can to help animals, Netflixing and chilling, expanding our personal tea collection, cooking, gardening, and just enjoying life spent with friends.
We hope you enjoy perusing through the shop! You’ll notice we offer sample sizes in many of the products available. The skin is a finicky organ and so we think it’s important to allow customers the opportunity to try the products and see how they’ll work on the skin before committing to full-size versions. Much easier on the wallet that way, too. 😉
