BLOOM AND BRIGHTEN

Luxury Active Florals are at the heart of every SAINT JANE formula. We use dozens of different flowers and botanicals across all our products, each with their own unique benefits for skin.

 

With the launch of our new Resurfacers bundle, which features our award-winning Luxury Body Serum and The C-Drops bundled together for the first time with exclusive savings, we wanted to highlight a few of our favorite renewing flowers in those formulas.

 

Among the 28 omega-rich botanicals and exfoliating fruit acids in Luxury Body Serum is Damascus Rose flower oil. Known also as the Damask Rose and the Rose of Castile, the Damascus Rose is beloved for its heavenly scent. Its benefits are not just superficial, however, the oil is a coveted skincare ingredient because of its ability to renew and purify skin. A natural astringent and anti-microbial, Damascus Rose oil not only helps treat but also prevent breakouts. It also has the ability to speed wound healing, decrease hyperpigmentation, and promote a more even skin tone.

Jasmine flower oil is another floral most-famous for its scent. However, like the Damascus Rose, Jasmine contains many hidden benefits for skin. We included Jasmine in Luxury Body Serum because of its ultra-hydrating properties. It has the ability to soothe and heal dry, irritated skin in even the harshest conditions. It has even been known to aid those suffering from skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. As an added bonus, it helps promote collagen production for plump, hydrated skin!

You already know our cult-favorite The C-Drops contains a 20% Vitamin C blend, but did you know it contains 5 different types of exfoliating citrus fruit oils to help you achieve our signature glow? Orange Peel Oil is known for its ability to improve skin’s overall texture by promoting clarity and smoothness. It gently resurfaces to buff away dull, dead skin cells and reveal radiant skin. As an added bonus, it also helps promote good circulation and blood flow.

One of the reasons we are able to pack such a potent Vitamin C blend into The C-Drops is our inclusion of 500mg of full flower hemp extract.  Full flower hemp extract is famous for its anti-inflammatory capabilities. Its ability to calm breakouts, soothe irritation, and reduce redness have made it one of the most talked about skincare ingredients in recent years. We love it because it allows us to pack so many clean actives into our products that work to renew your skin without irritation and other side effects!

CENTURIES OF HEALING IN ONE BOTTLE: INSIDE LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM

 

 

If you love SAINT JANE, chances are you love our holy grail Luxury Beauty Serum. Its award-winning formula is filled with over 20 luxury floral actives beloved for centuries by ancient civilizations for their skin nourishing results. Each flower brings its own unique benefit to the table, and quite honestly many of them could be a full skincare routine in their own right. Combined, they create our cult-favorite Luxury Beauty Serum. We don’t mean to brag, but it has been called "the face oil to end all face oils". Just saying.

While we could literally write novels on each of these gorgeous flowers and why we chose them, today we simply want to highlight a few of our favorites and the benefits they have in store for your skin.

 

  1. Helichrysum: Dubbed “immortelle” by the French for its powerhouse anti-aging properties, Helichrysum was once presented as an offering to the gods in ancient Greece. It was also used as a topical anti-septic. These healing properties make it a wonderful addition to skincare products because it helps activate repair and cell turnover, plus stimulates collagen production for more youthful looking skin.

 

  1. Calendula: As one of the most effective, natural anti-inflammatory ingredients out there, Calendula more than earns its place amongst skincare superheros. It known for its ability to soothe and calm irritated skin from conditions such as eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, etc. Its rich supply of essential fatty acids make it highly nourishing for dry skin. These skin healing properties led Civil War era doctors to use it as a wound treatment for soldiers.

 

  1. Sunflower: Not just another pretty summer flower! Sunflower is a natural skin protectant able to be used on the most sensitive of skin. It contains high concentrations of Vitamin E and Linoleic Acid, both powerful protectants that help support and maintain skin’s natural barrier. Historically, it was used to care for the delicate skin of premature babies.

 

  1. Rosehip: Historically, Rosehip has been used for centuries to treat a variety of issues. It has been used as everything from perfumes and food flavoring to treatments for muscle cramps and scurvy prevention. It was used by the Egyptians, Romans, and Mayans for its incredible healing abilities. We love it for skin thanks to its high concentrations of antioxidants and its ability to stimulate both collagen and elastin production.

 

Can you believe that this list does not even scratch the surface of the many luxurious botanicals found in Luxury Beauty Serum?  Our floral infused products are filled with so many meticulously clean ingredients steeped in history that we can't wait to share more. Make sure to follow us for further details on the many exquisite florals we curate for our award -winning formulas.

THE ULTIMATE SAINT JANE FACIAL

Facial smoothing stones have become all the rage with aestheticians and influencers alike. In fact, you’ve probably seen them floating around your Instagram or TikTok feeds on more than one occasion. Users swear by their ability to depuff and contour the face, but you’re certainly not alone if you’ve ever looked at one and thought, “How the heck am I supposed to use this?”. Not to worry – we’ll guide you through the step-by-step process using our Obsidian Smoothing Stone coupled with Luxury Beauty Serum and Hydrating Petal Cream for the ultimate SAINT JANE facial!

 

Step 1 – Prep

 

On a freshly cleansed face, apply one full dropper of Luxury Beauty Serum. The omega-rich formula not only delivers a boost of nutrients, the oil also helps saturate the skin to ensure the best canvas for the Obsidian Smoothing Stone. The anti-inflammatory properties in the serum augments the depuffing power of the stone for your most radiant results.

 

Step 2 – Smooth

 

 

Using the below diagram as a guide, glide the Obsidian Smoothing Stone across your face in the directions shown using sweeping, fluid motions. Pressure, as well as direction, is important. Pressing too hard will not increase the effectiveness of the tool, instead you should think of pulling rather than pushing on the skin. Gliding the stone across your face in this manner promotes better blood circulation which in turn helps to depuff.

 

 

Start at the base of the neck and follow the arrows in upward motions as shown. Repeat each stroke 5-10 times for optimal results. Make sure to sweep the stone all the way to the outer edges of your face with each stroke.

 

Step 3 – Lock In The Results

 

 

 

As a finishing step, we love to apply Hydrating Petal Cream to lock in the benefits from steps 1 and 2. The 1% pure hyaluronic acid formula delivers hydration for plump, glowing skin while floral essences like Magnolia soften and smooth. Hibiscus seed peptides, dubbed “Nature’s Botox”, promote elastin production for firm, contoured skin.

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.

SACRED BOTANICALS: HIBISCUS

We don’t use the term “hero ingredient” often or lightly, but Hibiscus is justifiably a hero ingredient. As a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and anti-aging antioxidants, Hibiscus has more than earned its “Nature’s Botox” moniker. It’s no wonder we blended potent Hibiscus Seed peptides into our new Hydrating Petal Cream.

You might be wondering what makes Hibiscus any different than other skincare ingredients that claim a myriad of benefits for your face. There are so many ingredients out there that claim to do this or fix that, it can be overwhelming trying to work them all into your routine. One of the things we love most about Hibiscus is that its potent peptides pack multiple benefits into this one ingredient.

Hibiscus is not only rich in antioxidant Vitamin C, a powerhouse skincare ingredient by anyone’s standards, it also contains anthocyanosides. Anthocyanosides neutralize free radicals, a major source of skin aging, and act as an anti-inflammatory to visibly calm stressed skin. Those with sensitive skin know how hard it can be to find a powerful skincare product that doesn’t cause irritation as an unfortunate side effect. Due to its inflammation-fighting capabilities, Hibiscus is one of the rare ingredients that can do both. In case those benefits weren’t enough,anthocyanosides also act as an astringent and minimize the appearance of pores.

Fighting signs of aging isn’t the only superpower in Hibiscus’s arsenal. It’s also a rich source of AHAs. These gentle exfoliators increase cell turnover, reduce breakouts, and brighten the complexion without stripping the skin of its natural oils. They also improve skin’s texture and reduce the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation over time.

Finally, Hibiscus has a high mucilage content. Mucilage is a substance created by plants to help them retain water and nutrients. It works as an intense hydrator for skin and improves skin’s ability to retain moisture, resulting in a supple, youthful complexion.

Hibiscus is just one of many hardworking botanicals we use in our products. Clean, potent ingredients are the focus of our formulations, and the results speak for themselves. Incorporate our new Hydrating Petal Cream into your skincare routine and experience the power of Hibiscus for yourself.

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”

“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.

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

“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.

Bold Botanicals: Kakadu Plum, Sacred Superfruit and Unexpected Source of Vitamin C

With small, creamy white flowers in long spikes clustered towards the tips of the branches, the Kakadu Plum is an extraordinary botanical and superfruit originating from the wilds of Australia. Aboriginal people have valued this sacred plant for thousands of years for its nutrient-rich and medicinal properties, even using the red bark of the tree to heal skin conditions.

It wasn’t until the 1980’s that western scientists discovered just how extraordinary this fruit really is. They found phenomenally high Vitamin C concentrations in Kakadu plums. Traditional fruits like oranges and lemons are well known for being natural sources of Vitamin C, but the Kakadu Plum has the highest recorded concentration of Vitamin C in the world, measuring at 100 times that of an orange.

 

Natural contents in the plum are also rich in antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Research has even shown its extract has excellent preservative qualities. With these powerful benefits, this superfruit ingredient is a dream for infusing into your clean beauty routine.

When we were developing The C-Drops, infusing Kakadu Plum as one of our sustainably sourced, hero ingredients was the answer to harnessing the power of this superfruit to benefit the skin. Grown free from human intervention, this beautiful, wildcrafted ingredient thrives in its harsh growing conditions, developing a highly efficient defense mechanism made up of diverse antioxidants. These antioxidants help to detoxify the skin and fight off free radical damage caused by environmental factors.

Kakadu Plum works to restore the skin’s natural barrier and encourages skin elasticity and suppleness which is ideal for balancing the complexion. Perfect for acne prone or oily skin, while its deeply soothing qualities can calm sensitive skin.

Our favorite way to incorporate Kakadu Plum into your skincare routine is through a targeted serum like The C-Drops. Rich in Kakadu Plum, citrus botanicals like lemon, lime and mandarin work to visibly smooth skin textures, brighten dullness and leave a radiance you only get with high concentrations of Vitamin C. 

Get the full benefits of this rich ingredient in your morning skincare routine, and be sure to follow with a good sunscreen to add another layer of protection for your skin.

Best in Class Vitamin C for Bright, Glowing Skin

It’s no secret that Vitamin C is one of the most powerful ingredients in skincare. In the 1920’s a Hungarian scientist named Albert Szent-Györgyi became interested in the cell respiration and energy production in plants, and would meticulously study any “browning” or interrupted growth. While conducting a series of experiments, he discovered that he could delay these interruptions by adding citrus juice to nurture the plants. Eventually, he would learn to isolate what he believed to be the protective acid agent in the citrus juice, and made the game changing discovery of Vitamin C. 


Our skin is just as delicate as the botanicals in Albert’s studies, and infusing Vitamin C into your skincare routine can be just as powerful as the results he witnessed in his discovery.

Like many ingredients, not all Vitamin C is created equal. There are different variations, different potencies and different levels of quality. We believe that in order to transform the skin, only the best Vitamin C will do.

We use an innovative form of Glycerin-Encapsulated Vitamin C that goes into every drop of our award-winning The C-Drops and Bright Repair Eye Cream to deliver potent benefits to your skin. Glycerin is a natural hydrator that is known for its ability to deeply absorb past the skin’s surface. In combination with Vitamin C, it increases the efficacy in visibly brightening, smoothing texture, and nourishing the skin. Delivering Vitamin C to your skin in this form also helps to improve your skin barrier and provides a level of protection against skin stressors.

 Our Vitamin C is formulated for top level potency. Active at 20% in C-Drops and 10% in Bright Repair, the brightening and resurfacing power is at its highest level of efficacy. Our decision to infuse Full flower Hemp Extract into the formula helps to soothe on contact, and keeps irritation at bay...a common problem with traditional Vitamin C skincare. The way these two ingredients perform is a beautiful balancing act, a dream for even the most sensitive complexions. 

 

Like all of our ingredients, our Vitamin C is held to the highest standards of clean beauty. Sustainably sourced and thoughtfully formulated, we never compromise when it comes to keeping every component meticulously clean.  A clean approach to skincare for peace of mind so you can squeeze the day. 

Life is a wondrous phenomenon. I can only hope that someday man will achieve a deeper insight into its nature and its guiding principles and will be able to express them in more exact terms…To express the marvels of nature in the language of science is one of man’s noblest endeavors.” — Albert Szent-Györgyi
