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.

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.

10 FLOWERS, 10 BENEFITS: DISCOVER THE POWER OF FLOWERS FOR YOUR SKIN

 

 

Since Saint Jane began, using meticulously clean, natural ingredients has been one of the most important principles we’ve stood by as a brand. When developing our new Hydrating Petal Cream, we approached the formulation with the same principle in mind. Inspired by petals and their ability to retain their beauty through hydration, Hydrating Petal Cream uses the power of 10 floral essences to moisturize and smooth the skin.

 

While “floral essences” may sound beautiful and luxurious, and they are, their benefits go far beyond their gorgeous packaging. Each of the 10 flowers in Hydrating Petal Cream was chosen for their unique capability to aid your overall skin wellness. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the power of these hardworking botanicals.

 

Daisy: In addition to its ability to brighten skin, Daisy contains a combination of polyphenols which are known to suppress melanin production, which enables it to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

 

Frangipani: As a powerful softener, Frangipani works to soothe dry, cracked skin. The result is a more supple, toned complexion.

 

Full Flower Hemp: One of the most sought-after skincare ingredients, Full Flower Hemp extract is most known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It has the ability to soothe skin suffering from the effects of conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea.

 

Hibiscus: Known as “Nature’s Botox”, Hibiscus is an ingredient with a multitude of benefits. As a rich natural source of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids, Hibiscus gently resurfaces and renews skin. We even devoted an entire post to this hero ingredient, which you can read here.

 

Honeysuckle: Honeysuckle is a natural antibacterial agent as well as an anti-inflammatory, which means it has the ability to reduce the frequency of breakouts and calm any that occur.

 

Jasmine: In addition to its anti-septic properties, Jasmine hydrates and restores the skin to increase elasticity and fade scars and hyperpigmentation.

 

Magnolia: Magnolia has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine due to its powerful anti-inflammatory abilities. It’s also a potent antioxidant, reduces skin redness, and help prevent the loss of elasticity.

 

Mimosa: Mimosa is a coveted skincare ingredient for its ability to boost collagen and therefore delay skin aging. It also firms and smooths skin for a more youthful appearance.

 

Pink Lotus: As a rich source of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids, Pink Lotus works to exfoliate the skin’s outer layer and allow younger cells to come to the surface. It also shrinks pores and calms red, irritated skin.

 

Sunflower: A potent antioxidant, Sunflower helps prevent premature signs of aging and its emollient properties protect the skin’s outer layer.

 

 

Would you believe us if we told you that despite infusing Hydrating Petal Cream with so many potent botanicals, the resulting formula is not heavy or sticky? The impossibly lightweight cream is packed with so many nutrients, you’ll quickly see why it has become a Holy Grail product!

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.

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 Hemp Extract 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 hemp industry or helping minority women overcome trauma. Their missions are powerful and we are so grateful to lend our support.

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.
