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.

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.

SACRED BOTANICALS: POMEGRANATE

 Our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum contains over 20 clean, hardworking botanicals. Each of them brings their own list of benefits to the table, and Pomegranate is no exception. In fact, the list of potential benefits that pomegranate holds for skin is so long, it definitely earns its super-ingredient title. 

 

As one of the world’s most ancient fruits, pomegranates have a rich history across many ancient civilizations. In early Jewish culture, the fruit was considered a symbol of sanctity and abundance. In China, it was a symbol of fertility, with Buddha often depicted holding a pomegranate to represent an abundance of sons. In ancient Greek culture, it became a symbol of rejuvenation and eternal life due to its association with Persephone, the goddess of spring. Given what we know now about the detoxifying and anti-aging properties of pomegranates, it is not surprising that the fruit was revered by so many ancient peoples.

 

 

Pomegranate is often lauded for its antioxidant properties, and for good reason. It contains approximately 48% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C, a skincare hero-ingredient by any standards, as well as other antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and tannins. The high dose of antioxidants helps fight free radical damage and even protect against future damage. It also empowers cell regeneration and healing, which makes it an effective treatment for sunspots and hyperpigmentation.

 

If you’re like us, anti-aging benefits are one of the first properties we look for in our skincare ingredients. Pomegranate does not disappoint in this area. Studies have shown that pomegranate seed oil may help improve cell turnover and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also known to promote smooth, firm skin by empowering collagen and elastin production – two key ingredients for a more youthful complexion. It also not only stimulates new collagen production, but helps protect the collagen you already have, leading to even more anti-aging power.

 

Finally, pomegranate is rich in fatty acids and deeply hydrating due to its ability to penetrate to the deepest layers of skin. It is particularly effective in the winter months, as it helps prevent moisture loss to fight dry, irritated skin. However, those who suffer from acne-prone skin need not worry, pomegranate will not clog pores and even contains anti-microbial properties to help prevent future breakouts. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, which helps calm existing breakouts and soothes red, irritated skin. By reducing inflammation, circulation is improved which supercharges skin’s ability to heal and regenerate itself.

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: Helichrysum "The Everlasting Flower"

helichrysum_luxury_beauty_serum_saint_jane

In every drop of Saint Jane serum, every jar of eye cream, and every swipe of lip treatment are sacred, trusted botanicals that have been used for centuries to treat and transform the skin.

Of the 20 potent botanicals found in our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum, Helichrysum is one we harness for its concentrated antioxidant potency and historical healing powers. This powerful botanical, also known as “Everlasting” or “Immortelle”, impresses with its extreme gentleness and high efficacy. 

Some of the first known uses of Helichrysum comes from the time of the Ancient Greeks, as it was known and used for its wound healing ability often used after the frequent battles of that time period. 

Helichrysum appears countless times in Greek mythology, most notably in Homer’s epic poem when the hero Oydsseus returns to the Pheonician coast and meets the divine Nausicaa, the beautiful daughter of the king. It is told the secret of her beauty is the extraordinary oil of the “flower that never fades, even when it is picked,” earning its name...Immortelle.

In addition to its rich history, this everlasting flower really shines when it comes to benefits for the skin, as the ancient women of history discovered. The renewing oil is an anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiseptic...the list goes on. The esters found naturally occurring in the oil are known to help reduce the appearance of acne and have a calming effect on the skin. The presence of naturally occurring chemical components make up the unique structure of this oil that’s powerful enough to balance oily and dry skin, but gentle enough for sensitive skin, especially when mixed with other botanicals (like the 19 others in Luxury Beauty Serum).

Helichrysum oil can be incredibly moisturizing, even for oily complexions and its powerful renewing properties have been shown to slow and even visibly reverse signs of aging. The high concentrations of antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties help to repair and restore skin cells, revive dull skin and combat fine lines and dark spots. 

saint_jane_luxury_cbd_beauty_serum

When selecting and sourcing our botanical blends, those that have the ability to calm skin stress are close to our hearts. Helichrysum is both antibiotic and antifungal and an effective treatment for so many skin irritations. Using a serum like Luxury Beauty Serum, with concentrations of Helichrysum can help combat skin stress like breakouts, eczema, psoriasis and other skin concerns. Our love for this everlasting flower and it’s healing history runs deep and infusing its sacred benefits into every golden drop will empower your skin to find balance and calm.

luxury_beauty_serum_reviews

“My holy grail oil and  favorite product I have ever used on my face. I waited to write this review until I really used this long term. It’s been over a year and I have no desire to change or try a different product. It helps with my breakouts while hydrating my skin at the same time. I recommend this to everyone! I use it on its own at night or mix a few drops with my moisturizer.”

- Sephora Client

“For me skin care is about slowing down, winding down, and taking the time to just enjoy smells, textures, and pamper myself if even for ten minutes before bed. This serum introduced me to this new practice of mine and I love it. Added benefit: my skin has never felt softer.

- Sephora Client

“This is a beautiful face oil. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I purchased the full size after finishing up a sample I received. I've been using this for about 3 weeks and it's definitely made a difference in my skin. I see a reduction in fine lines, redness and an improvement in moisture level. It sinks right into my skin leaving no residue behind. The smell is divine. After pressing it into my skin I hold my hands up to my nose and inhale. It's a very light and relaxing scent. I will continue to purchase this product given the results I've seen in a short period of time. I would also like to give a shout out to the Saint Jane team. They are so friendly and extremely helpful. It makes me feel good supporting a company like that.”

- Sephora Client

“Love this product!  Luxurious packaging and experience applying this serum nightly.  After a month of use it has helped calm the redness and irritation my skin acquired after having my second child. I am now a fan and will be purchasing again!”

- Sephora Client

“This serum is heaven in a bottle. Such a beautiful product, in every sense. As for the serum, it’s lightweight, has a slight scent to it but it’s pleasant, and made my skin feel good. With continued use, my skin felt more hydrated, my areas of texture decreased, and my skin had a glow to it. I feel like this serum improved the overall look of my face and skin.”

-Sephora Client

Is It a Serum or a Facial Oil? Our #1 FAQ About Luxury Beauty Serum

luxury beauty serum cbd clean beauty

 

We get asked this all the time...is Luxury Beauty Serum a facial oil or a serum? We have an answer but first let’s start with the difference between a serum and a facial oil. If you find yourself unable to tell the difference, you aren’t alone. The term “serum” has become a general skincare category for any kind of treatment that targets various skin concerns with formulas that vary in texture.

A serum is traditionally a super concentrated, lightweight product that is applied after cleansing/toning but before moisturizer. Because of their fluid or gel-like textures, they absorb easily into the skin to powerfully target skin concerns with concentrated active ingredients. Serums can be formulated to boost hydration, brighten, detoxify, fight signs of aging and so much more. 

When it comes to facial oils, they are quite a bit different from serums. Oils are richer in texture, and act as an emollient moisturizer. Because of their impenetrable properties, they are designed to seal in moisture as a final step in your skincare routine after serums and moisturizers. Moisture escapes our skin so easily because of both environmental and genetic factors, so the use of a rich facial oil can protect your skin barrier and prevent moisture loss.

So which category does our award-winning, multi-purpose hero product fall? Luxury Beauty Serum is...BOTH. When we were developing this product, we wanted it to be truly multi-purpose and act as both a serum and facial oil (and moisturizer too!). The unique formula is infused with concentrations of rich botanicals like Sea Buckthorn, Calendula and Rose to boost radiance by gently detoxifying the pores. The 500 mg of Whole Flower Hemp Extract in the formula has a small molecular structure which, when combined with the other botanicals, absorbs quickly and deeply into the skin, unlike traditional oils. Your skin is not only receiving deeply intense concentrations of nutrients, but also a boost of hydration and barrier protection. The lightweight concentration of a serum with the skin drenching hydration and protection of a rich oil.

The result is skin that is nourished, stress-free and radiant. You can use Luxury Beauty Serum in your A.M. and P.M. skincare routine after cleansing and toning to target skin concerns like redness, acne, dryness, dullness or sensitive skin. Your glow is unmatched.

Why We Love Calendula to Calm the Skin

Why We Love Calendula to Calm the Skin
A Sacred, Clean Way to Calm Skin

 

Calendula is one of our favorite botanicals for calming the skin. Coveted for centuries, this sacred, ancient skin-soother is known and clinically proven for its anti-inflammatory properties, regenerative potency and antioxidant-rich benefits. 

Calendula was first named by the ancient Romans, who observed the plant would bloom on the first day (Latin: kalends) of every month. They viewed the plant’s non-stop blooming as a symbol of joy and cultivated it in their gardens to spread happiness. Ancient Egyptians extracted the sap from the plant’s stem and used it to heal wounds and promote healthy skin growth. In World War I, battlefield doctors would hydrate dried Calendula flowers and apply the mixture to soldiers’ wounds to prevent infection. 

When it comes to stressed skin, we take inspiration from mother nature and botanicals that have been used for centuries to restore, heal and nourish. This beautiful ingredient which restores balance, boosts hydration and aids the skin barrier, is the ultimate lifeline for stressed-skin, and one of our potent botanicals in our Luxury Beauty Serum and Luxury Body Serum. Our Calendula is sustainably sourced in Egypt using CO2 extraction methods directly from the flower to ensure potency and efficacy. But most of all we chose Calendula to infuse your skin with moments of restorative calm.
