OUR SECRET TO LAYERING ✨

 

Have you ever typed into Google the words, “Can I use *insert skincare ingredient here* at the same time as *insert skincare ingredient here*.

Yep, we thought so. We’ve all done it - pondered the mysteries of layering skincare ingredients until our heads spin. Layering can be a tricky concept that boggles the minds of even the most seasoned skincare aficionados. 

 

SAINT JANE is here to take the guesswork out of layering our products. All of our products are packed with potent ingredients designed to complement one another and enhance their effects. Though each of our products contains enough clean actives and rich botanicals to be a full routine on its own, we’re sharing our complete suggested layering guide below.

 

Step 1 - The C-Drops

 

As a general layering rule of thumb, you should start with the thinnest in product texture and work your way up to the heaviest. For SAINT JANE, that means The C-Drops is the first layer of your routine. Packed with a 20% glycerin-encapsulated Vitamin C blend, this powerful serum is formulated to penetrate the deepest layers of skin for maximum effectiveness. Starting with The C-Drops enables you to up your skin’s glow factor for a radiant complexion. Though Vitamin C is a potent ingredient that can sometimes cause irritation and redness as an unfortunate side effect, our formulation includes skin-soothing botanicals, for a gentle yet effective first step.

 

Step 2 - Hydrating Petal Cream

 

As the newest product in the SAINT JANE skincare arsenal, Hydrating Petal Cream has already taken its place among our can’t-live-without products. With the ultra-hydrating power of 1% pure Hyaluronic Acid combined with the smoothing capabilities of Hibiscus Peptides, Hydrating Petal Cream delivers silky smooth, hydrated skin that lasts all day. Its featherweight texture absorbs quickly and is specifically designed to never pill, making it the perfect lightweight moisturizer to layer on top of your first step. As an added bonus, it’s the perfect base for your makeup if you’re doing this routine in the morning!

 

 

Step 3 - Bright Repair Eye Cream

Somehow, our eyes seem to always be the neglected part of our skincare routine. Do we really need an entirely separate product just for this one area? The answer is an emphatic YES. The skin around our eyes is different than the rest of our face, and thus needs special care. Bright Repair Eye Cream is specifically designed to target dark circles and fine lines while protecting the integrity of our delicate eye skin. 10% Vitamin C visibly brightens while Green Tea and Grapeseed work to de-puff and knock out the intensity of dark circles for a calm, well-rested look. 

 

Step 4 - Luxury Beauty Serum

 

It has been called “the face oil to end all face oils” for a reason. Our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum is a powerful treatment packed with hundreds of nutrients designed to reverse signs of aging and calm skin. This omega-rich serum not only delivers a huge dose of soothing botanicals to skin, it also packs a punch with actives such as Sea Buckthorn and Calendula, which gently resurface and detoxify pores. Luxury Beauty Serum is our holy grail, skin-transforming powerhouse and is the ultimate final layer to seal in all of the nutrients from the previous steps.

YOU ASKED. WE ANSWER.

You’ve got questions, and we’ve got answers! We recently asked our customers to share their most burning questions about any of our products. They did not disappoint! At SAINT JANE, we strive to provide as much information and transparency around our award-winning products as possible. We feel that you have a right to know what’s in the products you put on your skin, and the benefits our meticulously clean ingredients can provide. That way, you can make an informed decision on which products earn their spot in your daily skincare routine. We’re answering five of our most-asked questions below!

 

Q: “I have normal to oily skin, will Luxury Beauty Serum make me break out?”

A: Dubbed “the face oil to end all face oils” by Stylecaster, Luxury Beauty Serum is a powerful treatment designed to address numerous skin concerns. Not only will it not clog pores, but it also works to detoxify them thanks to ingredients such as Calendula. Super ingredient Sea Buckthorn also helps balance excess oil production while 500mg of Full Flower Hemp Extract calms inflammation and irritation from current breakouts. In short, Luxury Beauty Serum is safe to use for all skin types.

 

Q: “What does glycerin-encapsulated Vitamin C mean?”

A: A good Vitamin C serum is a staple in any skincare routine, but these powerful serums can irritate sensitive skin. Our unique formula for The C-Drops contains a potent 20% Vitamin C blend, which we encapsulated in glycerin to ensure the serum penetrates the skin’s deepest layers for maximum results while minimizing irritation and redness.

 

Q: “Can The C-Drops be layered with your other products, or do they have to be used on their own?”

A: All of our products are designed to complement one another and enhance each other’s effects. We suggest using The C-Drops as the first step in your routine, followed by Luxury Beauty Serum and Hydrating Petal Cream for maximum hydration and radiance.

 

Q: “Which of your products are okay to use under makeup?”

A: Hydrating Petal Cream is not only a deeply hydrating moisturizer, but it also works beautifully under makeup for petal-soft skin that lasts all day. Bright Repair Eye Cream's silky formula absorbs effortlessly and is perfect under concealer and foundation. Our no-pill formulas enables makeup to glide on seamlessly for a naturally glowing complexion.

 

Q: “Is Hydrating Petal Cream only a summer moisturizer?”

A: Definitely not! Don’t let Hydrating Petal Cream’s featherweight texture fool you. The formula boasts 1% pure Hyaluronic Acid for deep hydration capable of standing up to winter conditions.

10 FLOWERS, 10 BENEFITS: DISCOVER THE POWER OF FLOWERS FOR YOUR SKIN

 

 

Since Saint Jane began, using meticulously clean, natural ingredients has been one of the most important principles we’ve stood by as a brand. When developing our new Hydrating Petal Cream, we approached the formulation with the same principle in mind. Inspired by petals and their ability to retain their beauty through hydration, Hydrating Petal Cream uses the power of 10 floral essences to moisturize and smooth the skin.

 

While “floral essences” may sound beautiful and luxurious, and they are, their benefits go far beyond their gorgeous packaging. Each of the 10 flowers in Hydrating Petal Cream was chosen for their unique capability to aid your overall skin wellness. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the power of these hardworking botanicals.

 

Daisy: In addition to its ability to brighten skin, Daisy contains a combination of polyphenols which are known to suppress melanin production, which enables it to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

 

Frangipani: As a powerful softener, Frangipani works to soothe dry, cracked skin. The result is a more supple, toned complexion.

 

Full Flower Hemp: Otherwise known as CBD, one of the most sought-after skincare ingredients, Full Flower Hemp extract is most known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It has the ability to soothe skin suffering from the effects of conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea.

 

Hibiscus: Known as “Nature’s Botox”, Hibiscus is an ingredient with a multitude of benefits. As a rich natural source of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids, Hibiscus gently resurfaces and renews skin. We even devoted an entire post to this hero ingredient, which you can read here.

 

Honeysuckle: Honeysuckle is a natural antibacterial agent as well as an anti-inflammatory, which means it has the ability to reduce the frequency of breakouts and calm any that occur.

 

Jasmine: In addition to its anti-septic properties, Jasmine hydrates and restores the skin to increase elasticity and fade scars and hyperpigmentation.

 

Magnolia: Magnolia has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine due to its powerful anti-inflammatory abilities. It’s also a potent antioxidant, reduces skin redness, and help prevent the loss of elasticity.

 

Mimosa: Mimosa is a coveted skincare ingredient for its ability to boost collagen and therefore delay skin aging. It also firms and smooths skin for a more youthful appearance.

 

Pink Lotus: As a rich source of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids, Pink Lotus works to exfoliate the skin’s outer layer and allow younger cells to come to the surface. It also shrinks pores and calms red, irritated skin.

 

Sunflower: A potent antioxidant, Sunflower helps prevent premature signs of aging and its emollient properties protect the skin’s outer layer.

 

 

Would you believe us if we told you that despite infusing Hydrating Petal Cream with so many potent botanicals, the resulting formula is not heavy or sticky? The impossibly lightweight cream is packed with so many nutrients, you’ll quickly see why it has become a Holy Grail product!

A Candid Interview With Our Founder, Casey Georgeson and re•spin, An Online Wellness Community

THE WAY THIS “CLEAN” BEAUTY BRAND IS PUTTING WOMEN’S HEALING AND EMPOWERMENT FIRST
By: Jessica Ourisman
 

“What’s in a name?” Shakespeare once wrote. In the case of the indie beauty brand, Saint Jane, there is actually great depth and significance in their name. It references a historical figure and saint, Jane De Chantal, a French baroness who dedicated her life to healing and uplifting vulnerable women outcast by society in the 1500s. This healing legacy alludes to the root of the founder’s mission and ethos, whose philosophy aims to heal sensitive skin and to empower women — giving back to non-profits that empower girls and women.

But as the mother of three young daughters, CEO and founder Casey Georgeson’s business decisions to prioritize women’s health are deeply personal. As you’ll learn, she aims to support women’s health, healing, and wellness through critical moments of pause and self-care set aside to nourish and rē-connect the mind, body, skin, and spirit. Georgeson’s story also provides insight into the growing “clean” beauty niche, which is slowly but surely transforming the billion-dollar industry, rē-spinning the way consumers think about beauty and personal care products.

The Founder’s Journey to “Clean”

But as the mother of three young daughters, CEO and founder Casey Georgeson’s business decisions to prioritize women’s health are deeply personal. As you’ll learn, she aims to support women’s health, healing, and wellness through critical moments of pause and self-care set aside to nourish and rē-connect the mind, body, skin, and spirit. Georgeson’s story also provides insight into the growing “clean” beauty niche, which is slowly but surely transforming the billion-dollar industry, rē-spinning the way consumers think about beauty and personal care products.

The Controversy Over “Clean”

Many deride the clean beauty industry, in part due to the fact that the term is still legally unregulated and thus can be used as a marketing ploy. Although a growing body of research exists, experts often disagree when it comes to what constitutes “safe” (with a major debate brewing over sunscreen), fueling discourse and continued research — but also divisive rhetoric among impassioned beauty consumers and commentators. If you’re one of the skeptics, simply try thinking of the push for “non-toxic” beauty in terms of consumer preference; just as some of us prefer organic, farm-to-table cuisine, opt to be vegetarians or flexitarians, or to practice yoga as opposed to pilates, it comes down to personal choice and sovereignty over one’s body — something that each of us is entitled to. After all, what makes a person feel safe is a highly personal decision. Even without industry regulations in place, you can trust that the products you purchase from Saint Jane adhere to Georgeson’s notion of “clean”; namely, “ingredients that are globally recognized to be less toxic.”

“For too many years, women didn’t know ingredients in their beauty products were toxic or dangerous, like Formaldehyde, which we now know is a carcinogen.” Talc is another common (and legal) ingredient that has been found to occasionally be contaminated with the carcinogen asbestos, and Johnson & Johnson has actually been ordered to pay billions of dollars in damages to cancer patients and their families due to suspected links between their talcum powder — yes, the same baby powder made for use on our babies — and the disease. (As recently as June 2021, J&J lost a Supreme Court appeal to overturn a $2 billion settlement awarded by a jury, after already having been ordered to pay $4.9 billion in damages for talc’s link to ovarian cancer back in 2018.)

Debates aside, growing consumer interest in personal care, fragrance, skincare, and cosmetic products that make their ethics part of their business models — from sustainability, to ingredient selection, to supply chain transparency — is apparent. “Brands are absolutely taking notice [of this growing consumer trend and] represents a significant shift that I believe will ultimately make the beauty industry safer and more regulated,” Georgeson says. She is not alone in her belief that beauty’s best practices should be aligned with wellness of the self, with that of the planet, animals, and the communities of people involved.

 

rē-Thinking Beauty and Wellness as One

Let’s not forget that the world of CBD is often stigmatized still, and that championing this anti-inflammatory, wellness ingredient is aligned with the original Saint Jane’s efforts to serve the marginalized and shunned. Mostly, it is the multi-dimensional, more comprehensive approach to wellness — of the skin, of the self, and also of the planet —  that is rē-spinning the way that we think about beauty brands.

But because the niche is unregulated, do not trust a label to tell you what adheres to these principles; it takes digging deeper to know what it is you’re investing in. “The wellness of our planet is integral to the brand,” Georgeson says. “We partner with companies and farmers around the world to support their diverse cultures and empower their rich traditions in a modern and sustainable way with environmentally sound practices.” Whether it occurs tomorrow or in the next 20 years, the industry is undergoing a shift that is being led by health-conscious entrepreneurs and brands like Saint Jane.
