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.

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.

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

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.

Sacred Botanicals: Sandalwood

Centuries old Sandwood and its use for both medicinal and skincare benefits have been recorded for over 4,000 years, making it among the earliest botanicals to be used in this way.

Native to India, Sandalwood has a rich history and was believed to have been used in the bathing rituals of Hindu Gods. It is even written that the most powerful Goddess, Lakshmi resided in a Sandalwood Tree.

It was known then, and known now to hydrate, rejuvenate and soothe the skin. The unique and powerful benefits of this botanical are ideal for many skin concerns and skin types. As such a versatile ingredient, Sandalwood is one of our 20 botanicals found in our best-selling Luxury Beauty Serum. Our multipurpose skin calming, balancing and nourishing powerhouse serum.

luxury_cbd_beauty_serum

Sandalwood blends with our other botanicals and Whole-Flower CBD and attributes to the skin calming and nourishing effects of Luxury Beauty Serum. An essential ingredient in the efficacy of our hero serum.

sandalwood_botanical

 

For complexions on the drier side, Sandalwood can provide deep replenishment for moisture loss. It’s a natural emollient with powerful, hydrating effects on the skin. The scientific structure of Sandalwood allows deeper absorption into the skin to deliver an intense dose of moisture.

Sandalwood is the perfect gentle exfoliant for brighter skin. Rich, and liquid gold in color this oil has mild, natural astringent properties making it essential for skin renewal. 

Soothing and calming. Our two favorite skin benefits of the botanicals we select for our formulas. Sandalwood doesn’t disappoint in this department. It is rich with calming compounds with the unparalleled ability to renew the complexion. A dream botanical for harsh skin concerns like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.

The calming effects of Sandalwood go beyond the skin. When it comes to aromatherapy, the calming scent of Sandalwood is a favorite. It is said that the most aromatic Sandalwood Oil comes from the oldest trees. It’s rich, woody aroma is just as effective at uniting your senses as it is balancing your skin.

Why We Celebrate Women

 

Saint Jane was founded with women in mind. Starting with clean, sacred botanicals to empower your skin but our mission is so much more than that. 


Our namesake Saint Jane de Chantal was an incredible woman anointed into Sainthood for healing women that society wouldn’t touch...the sick, unwed mothers, and the shunned. Her life’s work was founding the Order of Visitation that accepted women that were rejected. When heavily criticized for her unusual approach, she famously replied, “I’m on their side.” She was the patron of forgotten women, widows, and those who are separated from their children. Saint Jane empowered women and is our inspiration to do the same in everything we do.

Women are incredible beings. We work hard, we get things done, and we overcome impossible obstacles every single day. We are mothers, care-givers, nurturers, innovators, independent thinkers, makers, doers and so much more. We deserve to be celebrated, uplifted, and championed at every step and in every facet of life. We are meant to have a seat at the table, to be at the front of the class, and most importantly to lead. 


That is our mission at Saint Jane. To empower women in every facet, starting with skin wellness and harnessing that power into other areas of life. We want to use our platform and our voice to give a voice to others, to uplift each other and to champion each other.


Our giveback mission is female-centric. Some of the incredible organizations we support with our dollars and with voices are Lipstick Angels, Girls Crushing It, Humble Bloom, and the Loveland Foundation. These organizations help women directly whether they are fighting illness and in need of joy, cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit at a young age, de-stigmatizing the CBD industry or helping minority women overcome trauma. Their missions are powerful and we are so grateful to lend our support.


Our passion for the female spirit is present even when we source and harvest our botanical CBD. In every formula we infuse Whole-Flower CBD that is cultivated from the female-side of the hemp plant. We do this because the female side of the hemp plant is resilient, is more desirable and produces more concentrated benefits. It mirrors everything that a woman represents and is an important, holistic part of our ethos. 


We hope that you join us in our mission. Starting with self-care and self-love as a strong woman and radiating that strength to other women. We are stronger together, always.

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. 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.”
