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.

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”

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.
