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.

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. Finally a CBD line that hits the mark for clean and luxury beauty. 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 CBD 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.

The Best Clean Lipgloss and Why It's Worth the Switch

lip_gloss_cbd_clean_beauty

 

Lip gloss is one of the most toxic products found in a makeup bag. We’ve all heard and read about the harmful ingredients found in some lip products on the market like lead, carcinogens, mineral oil, and synthetics but what makes these even more toxic is that we put them on our lips. Any product you put on your lips, will be gradually ingested (that’s right, we eat it!) not purposefully, of course, but it’s unavoidable. If you are like us, you swipe on a gloss, balm or lipstick almost daily and re-apply multiple times a day. All this usage can add up to a significant amount of consumption and absorption into our bodies. Your lips are also a thinner tissue so some toxins are absorbed straight away.

When nutritionists and doctors tell us to try and eat natural foods, and to avoid ingredients you can’t pronounce—shouldn’t that also apply to what we put on our skin? The largest organ of our body? We think so. We know it’s hard to part with your cult favorite products and going full non-toxic can be a challenge. If you are going to start somewhere, start with your mouth. Clean beauty has made incredible strides in creating lip formulas that are not only safer, but truly perform. 

That’s why when we launched our first lip product, Luxury Lip Shine in 2019, it was essential that the formula was meticulously clean, with good-for-you, results-driven ingredients that were rigorously tested...and that we could pronounce. We turned to powerful botanicals to infuse every swipe with skin-loving nutrients that act more like a lip treatment, but are still comfortable on the lips, non-sticky, and provide a sheer wash of color.

We are proud to say that our Luxury Lip Shines have 8 non-toxic, simple but high-performing ingredients: Sunflower Seed Oil, Whole Flower CBD, Candelilla Wax, Shea Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis, Chamomile Extract, and Grapefruit Seed Extract. These antioxidant-rich ingredients make up our high-shine, silky gloss that glides on effortlessly. Each botanical serves a purpose as skincare for your lips. Sunflower, Chamomile and Aloe are calming while Shea and Jojoba are deeply nourishing.

Beauty editors rave about these special glosses. Luxury Lip Shine was named “Best Clean Lip Gloss” by Women’s Health. “This CBD-spiked gloss glides on easily—no goops or globs, promise—and sticks to your lips (instead of your hair). Ingredients like aloe and sunflower act as a softening treatment too.”

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 CBD 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 CBD 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

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.
