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!

SACRED BOTANICALS: FRANKINCENSE

 

You’ve most likely heard of Frankincense because it is said to be one of the three gifts presented at the birth of Jesus, but what exactly is Frankincense? A staple in Ayurveda and Ancient Chinese Medicine, Frankincense is an aromatic resin obtained from the trunks of the Boswellia tree. The aromatic sap was traditionally burned as incense and was said to ward off evil spirits and serpents. Native to what is now modern-day Oman, Frankincense became the most lucrative trade in the world until A.D. 400 and made southern Arabia the richest region of the world at the time.

 

The ancient Egyptians were among the largest consumers of Frankincense, with Queen Hatshepsut organizing the largest trading expedition in the country’s history at the time to open more trade routes and provide better access to the sacred resin. The Egyptians used Frankincense for everything from wound treatments to eyeliner, and unsurprisingly Cleopatra was one of the first to use it as a skin treatment.

 

 

The wound healing properties of Frankincense translate well into skincare. It’s a natural astringent that is renowned for its ability to balance both oily and dry skin. Not only does it help fight and prevent breakouts, but its ability also to promote natural cell regeneration enables it to reduce dark spots, scarring, and other forms of hyperpigmentation. By increasing cell turnover, skin’s radiance is also improved due to old cells being gently exfoliated away and newer, healthier cells shining through.

 

Frankincense is also a powerful skin protectant known to strengthen skin’s natural barrier and provide a tightening effect. This ability to improve skin’s elasticity makes it a coveted ingredient among those looking for natural anti-aging ingredients.

 

Finally, its potent anti-inflammatory properties make Frankincense a particularly desirable skincare ingredient this time of year when dry, irritated skin is common. Its calming abilities help improve the overall appearance of skin by reducing redness and other visible signs of distress.

 

 

It’s no wonder we included Frankincense among the 20+ luxury active florals in our cult-favorite Luxury Beauty Serum.
