Rising from the Ashes: The Resilient Journey of Rebecca Bender and the Fight Against Human Trafficking

Rebecca Bender Initiative

 

Rebecca Bender's story is one of tragedy, survival, and triumph. At the vulnerable age of 18, she found herself ensnared in the dark world of human trafficking. Enduring unimaginable physical and emotional abuse, she spent nearly six years in the clutches of her traffickers. However, Rebecca's spirit remained unbroken, and with an unwavering determination, she managed to escape and went back to the darkest places she had seen to help others escape too.

Her journey towards healing and justice was fraught with challenges, but it laid the foundation for what would become the Rebecca Bender Initiative. The Initiative was founded with a dual purpose: to support survivors on their path to recovery and to raise awareness about the pervasive nature of human trafficking. In 2014, Rebecca officially launched the Initiative, fueled by a burning desire to make a difference and prevent others from suffering the same fate.

The Impact on Communities

Human trafficking is not a distant issue; it is a cancer that permeates communities worldwide, leaving scars on its victims and staining the very fabric of society. The Rebecca Bender Initiative recognizes the far-reaching consequences of this crime and endeavors to address its impact on communities.

Trafficking doesn't discriminate—it preys on the vulnerable, exploiting the marginalized and disadvantaged. By using her personal story to train first responders, Rebecca has made a difference in shifting systems that prohibit victims from being seen, shedding light on the faces behind the statistics. This awareness is crucial in fostering empathy and understanding within communities, ultimately fostering a collective effort to combat human trafficking.

The Initiative engages in education and outreach programs, equipping communities with the knowledge needed to recognize the signs of trafficking and respond effectively. By empowering individuals with the tools to identify and report suspicious activities, the Rebecca Bender Initiative plays a vital role in preventing the further spread of this insidious crime.

Accomplishments and Milestones:

Since its inception, the Rebecca Bender Initiative has achieved significant milestones in the fight against human trafficking. One of its notable accomplishments is the establishment of comprehensive training programs for law enforcement, first responders, and social service providers. These programs are designed to enhance the understanding of trafficking dynamics, equipping professionals with the skills needed to identify and assist survivors and has trained over 118,000 professionals to date.

Furthermore, the Initiative has been instrumental in shaping legislation aimed at strengthening anti-trafficking efforts. Rebecca's advocacy work has influenced policy changes at both the state and federal levels, creating a more robust legal framework for prosecuting traffickers and supporting survivors. After being appointed to the United States National Advisory Council, RBI has had a seat at reviewing and informing Congress on state responses that include over 120 recommended changes nationwide.

The Initiative's survivor support program, Elevate Academy offers a lifeline to those on the path to recovery. Through mentorship, courses, and vocational training, survivors are given the tools to rebuild their lives. This holistic approach recognizes the complex journey of healing, addressing not only the immediate physical and emotional needs but also the long-term goals and aspirations of survivors and has assisted nearly 1600 survivors spanning 600 U.S. cities and 19 countries

Looking Forward

While the Rebecca Bender Initiative has achieved remarkable success, the battle against human trafficking is far from over. The organization remains committed to its mission, constantly evolving its strategies to stay ahead of the ever-changing tactics employed by traffickers.

The power of community engagement is at the forefront of the Initiative's approach. By fostering collaboration between law enforcement, social services, survivor leaders and the community, a united front is formed against human trafficking. Community members are encouraged to be vigilant, to report suspicious activities, and to support survivors in their journey towards recovery by partnering monthly with RBI and other local organizations.

Rebecca Bender's story is a testament to the indomitable human spirit—a phoenix rising from the ashes of despair to bring about positive change. Through the Rebecca Bender Initiative, she has not only transformed her own pain into purpose but has also ignited a flame of awareness and action in communities around the world. She isn’t the only phoenix, there are survivors around the world stepping in and using their voices for change. When you partner with us, you partner with us all!

Human trafficking is a scourge that thrives in the shadows, but with advocates like Rebecca Bender leading the charge, the light of justice and compassion pierces through. As we stand united against this heinous crime, we honor the survivors, champion the cause, and work towards a future where no one falls victim to the darkness of human trafficking. The journey is ongoing, but with organizations like the Rebecca Bender Initiative, we can collectively strive for a world free from the chains of exploitation and oppression.

We are so honored to be able to give a portion of proceeds to help empower this incredible organization. You shop, we give. 🖤

"My Post-Cancer Clean Skincare Routine" — with Aidan Morris, Co-Founder of Do Cancer

Saint Jane x Do Cancer

 

Clean skincare has become a popular topic over the last few years – especially for me. At 35 I was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer and started years of treatment. During treatment for my first cancer, I spotted something on my foot that caught my attention. Turns out it was a melanoma, and a new, different treatment plan to target my skin cancer started alongside my breast cancer treatment plan.

I am a California native and have spent loads of time in the sun. I am fair and have always been good about sun protection, but even then, I got skin cancer (between my toes no less!). Keep an eye on your skin – if something looks new or doesn’t look right – prioritize a dermatologist appointment.

During cancer treatment I overhauled my day-to-day life. Most people think about eating clean or removing toxins from the home, but few realize how many carcinogens and toxins are in the beauty and personal care products we use every day.

 

Aidan Morris and Shenell Malloy, Co-Founders of Do Cancer + Cancer Survivors

 

Our skin is our largest organ. It absorbs what we put topically INTO our bodies. Not only do we want to care for and nourish the most outward facing part of our body to keep it strong and healthy, we also need to make sure it’s free of chemicals that can harm us. It’s all about properly feeding and protecting it. Let’s just say I’ve done more than my share of homework on clean products, so let me give you the skinny!

There’s clean, and then there’s cancer-clean.

I’ve changed the way I think about skin and beauty. Healthy, nourished skin is beautiful skin, and needs little covering up. I’ve pivoted from investing in expensive heavy makeup into skin-improving products to make me glow from the inside out.

For me, the cornerstone of my cancer-clean skincare routine is SAINT JANE. SAINT JANE is a meticulously clean brand that uses the power of natural botanicals – and it is effective. The products rival the efficacy of clinical-strength products I’ve used in the past – and completely debunked the myth that “clean is not as effective” for me. Their products are clean, super luxe, and smell unreal. The packaging is also insane. I love having these little pieces of art in my bathroom.

I know many of  you are always on the hunt for the right products, but are overwhelmed by the amount of clean (or, ahem, “clean”) products on the market. So I’m sharing what I’ve found to be the best, most effective products from a few years of research.

I’ll walk you through my daytime and nighttime routine with the SAINT JANE products I use – and tell you what they do, and why I love them. You can watch how I apply all of these products on our Instagram Reels @do.cancer. I also use a few other brands around the edges - and share my list of all favorites.

First – my skin type. I am fair and have sensitive, drier skin. SAINT JANE can work for lots of skin types, but the products from their line that I’ve gravitated to and super nourishing and hydrating.

Aidan Morris, Co-Founder of Do Cancer, is passionate about using clean beauty products from SAINT JANE after beating cancer.

DAYTIME!

I have 3 young kids, so sleep is sometimes hard to come by. So the very first thing I do is splash my face with water, and some days I use a cold jade roller to depuff.

SAINT JANE Superflower Detox Serum. I was a little dubious that I needed this product before using it, but it is a gamechanger and my daytime favorite. I place a few drops on clean, dry skin and press it into my face and down to my neck. I think of this like a multivitamin for my skin – and it smells amazing. Since I’ve started using it my skin is brighter, firmer, has better tone and overall just feels healthy and hydrated. It’s loaded with micronutrients that nourish the skin and has florals like rose and chamomile that keep it balanced. You may not think you need a skin “detox” product – but try it! You’ll be hooked. Learn more.

SAINT JANE Luxury Sun Ritual 30 SPF. The most important part of my morning routine – SPF. I have tried tons of clean, natural sunscreens and this one is my favorite. First – its’ clean which means it has zero chemicals (unlike most sunscreens), and it’s reef safe. The texture is almost whipped, and it has a little warm color to it which adjusts to all skin shades to help blur-out imperfections. Second – it’s a multitasker, which I love. It works like a primer, moisturizer and sunscreen in one. My routine has to be fast and SPF is non-negotiable so this can act as a base for no-makeup days, or as my primer when I’m wearing make-up. Finally, like all SAINT JANE products it’s beautiful and smells amazing. It’s light and has a desert rose and jasmine scent. After my Detox Serum dries, I apply this right on top. Learn more.

SAINT JANE Hydrating Petal Cream. After SPF I need a little extra hydration, especially in the winter. I like the Hydrating Petal Cream because it’s light and super effective without being greasy or heavy – perfect for daytime and under makeup. It has essences and antioxidants from 10 flowers (!) and instantly lifts my mood whenever I smell it. It is also brightening. I’ve always struggled with my skin looking sunken and almost a little gray. This really brightens it up with 10% vitamin C. That’s a pretty big dose for dry skin, but it never makes me flaky or dries me out because of all of the nourishing peptides and hyaluronic acid. After sunscreen sits on my face for a minute, I apply a thin layer. Learn more.

SAINT JANE Bright Repair Eye Cream. Oh, my under eyes. It’s always been the one place I really struggle to improve. This product has really helped the dark circles and crepiness around my eyes. It’s loaded with 10% vitamin C – so definitely patch test (I’ve never had an issue). It has a unique texture – almost silky and pillowy due to vegan collagen. It instantly wakes up my under eye. Learn more.

 SAINT JANE Luxury Lip Oil. Run run run to get this product. It’s an all in one lip-saver. My lips have always been super chapped and dry. Even when I was a kid, I had to constantly apply Carmex and Aquaphor (definitely NOT clean). Lip Shine doubles as a lip hydrator and non-sticky lip gloss. It’s only got 8 ingredients, which for a beauty product is almost unheard of, and gives you a light wash of color. It’s silky, stays on, and works like a lip treatment vs. lip gloss. My everyday go-to is Calm, but I own 4 shades. I have them stashed everywhere – in my purse, the car, bedside table… you get the picture. As I wrap my morning routine I swipe this on and I instantly look pulled together and ready to tackle my day. Learn more.

‍On most days, I just leave it there (I’m not a big makeup wearer). This standard daytime routine takes me about three minutes. Easy peasy. I grab a hat and head out the door. If I’m going to be outside that day – I always reapply SPF. I keep one tube of sunscreen on my vanity and one in my purse – ALWAYS. On days I want to look a little more polished, I put on light daytime makeup and even though I’m wearing a fair amount of skincare, my makeup never pills over SAINT JANE. Everything glides right on.

 

NIGHTTIME!

Okay, my day was fun (and exhausting) and now is when I show my skin a little extra TLC. Daytime I’m all about brightening and hydrating, nighttime I’m more focused on treatments and correcting. My main concerns are wrinkles, hydration, and still – brightening.

If I’m really doing it up I’ll take a bath. The reality is – this only happens every couple of weeks. But when I do, my new addiction is the Deep Sleep Bath Salts. Holy luxury. Think of these like an elevated Epsom soak. They’re loaded with Magnesium and smell so rich – nothing clean I’ve ever smelled can compete. There’s tons botanicals in the mix but evening primrose and bergamot really jump out. My skin is definitely softer when I use these, but what I really love is just the ritual that helps my sleep (which I’ve really struggled with after cancer). Divine! Learn more.

Okay – so adding a bath is when I’m living my best life, but this is what most nights look like:

First, I do a double cleanse. I remove my makeup with a clean removing wipe (Burt’s Bee’s Rose Towelette) and I use 100% Pure Virgin Coconut Moisturizing Milk Foam cleanser. Then I pat my skin dry and start my nighttime routine.

Luxury Beauty Serum. This beauty oil is hands-down the staple of my nighttime routine. It does everything. It hydrates, repairs, reduces wrinkles, improves tone. It just sinks into my skin and starts working away. I apply a few drops to my face and neck and press it in. It does so much for the skin, it’s really the only thing I HAVE to use.

Bright Repair Eye Cream. Again – gotta hit those under eyes, unfortunately! I apply this, after my Luxury Beauty Serum. Just gently dab with your ring finger around the eye.

My dry skin doesn’t stop at my face – so I apply SAINT JANE all over my body. When I was healing from radiation burns, yes I had prescription creams and I used them as directed, but medicated creams are unfortunately loaded with toxins. I used these as I was supposed to, but couldn’t wait to start clean body care. The creams you are given for radiation accelerate skin repair, but nothing feels nourishing and healing. Then I found my healer:

Luxury Body Serum was a godsend for skin healing. It’s a super-clean dry body oil that was created to nourish skin deeply. It sinks right in, smells heavenly, and was just what my body needed. After radiation was over and my skin could handle topicals again, I would apply it all over my torso and saw the benefits immediately. There’s almost 30 botanicals in this body oil including those that have been used for centuries to repair fragile skin. When your skin is ready to heal this product is amazing! I still use it. I throw a few pumps in my hands and apply all over my body. A good hack is to keep this beautiful black glass container in the shower so you can apply it right after you’ve dried off.  Learn more.

If a body oil isn’t your thing for everyday use, I love the Hydrabloom Body Silk. Finding a truly clean body lotion is hard, and this one delivers. Super light but effective, smells amazing. As you can tell – I’m addicted to hydration. Learn more.

These products have been a staple for me everyday. I’ve become incredibly focused on clean ingredients that improve the health and strength of my skin – my skin looking beautiful is a happy byproduct of that.

  

Here’s the complete list of my favorite clean skincare: 

Daytime treatment: Superflower Detox Serum

Daytime face lotion: Hydrating Petal Cream

SPF for Face: Luxury Sun Ritual

SPF for Body: Green Tea SPF 30 or Alba Kids Very Emollient Sunscreen SPF 40

Body treatment: Luxury Body Serum

Body lotion: Hydrabloom Body Silk

Cleanser: Virgin Coconut Moisturizing Foam Cleanser

Makeup wipes: Micellar Rose Towelettes  

Eye cream: Bright Eye Repair Serum

Magnesium: Our Holy Grail Ingredient for Nighttime Relaxation and Soft Skin

 

A hero ingredient in our Deep Sleep Bath Salts, we love Magnesium for its rich skincare benefits as well as its innate ability to help your body enter a state of relaxation after a long day. Melt away the chaos of the day and prepare for a restful night’s sleep with a warm bath, infused with Magnesium, our holy grail ingredient for relaxation.

Magnesium is an essential mineral found naturally in your body. When absorbed through the skin, it can have calming effects on both the body and mind — perfect for helping you unwind from the day and get ready for bed. When it comes to your skin, soaking in a Magnesium-infused bath surrounds your skin with softening and hydrating benefits so you step out of the tub and into bed with nourished skin.

We’ll be taking a deeper look at what magnesium is, its importance for our bodies, and how incorporating it into your bath ritual can lead to relaxation, and softer, more supple skin.

What is Magnesium And Why Is It Important?

Magnesium is a mineral found naturally in your body — often dubbed the ‘miracle mineral’ because it plays a pivotal role in over 300 chemical reactions in our body. Predominantly found in our bones, but also in our muscles, it has numerous benefits for our overall health – including brain and heart function, bone health and even the integrity of our muscles. Whilst we get magnesium through the foods we eat, it is also easily absorbed through the skin, and can be a very effective addition to your skincare rituals.

Magnesium can be beneficial in maintaining moisture levels while softening the skin and visibly reducing signs of premature aging. It’s calming properties are also amazing for helping sooth redness or irritation while providing relief for those with sensitive skin.

Benefits For The Body

Due to its calming effect on both the body and mind, Magnesium can help to reduce stress levels by inducing deep relaxation — allowing us to drift off into a peaceful slumber more quickly during bedtime. This also means that we wake up feeling refreshed every morning due to improved sleep  throughout the night.

Additionally, magnesium baths are incredibly beneficial when it comes to detoxifying and purifying — aiding in removing impurities from our pores while soothing sore muscles. 

Benefits For The Skin

Infusing your evening bath with Magnesium, envelops your skin in fatty acids which can help with collagen levels - responsible for keeping your skin bouncy and moisturized. Your skin is left hydrated and visibly more even bringing life and light back to lackluster skin. Magnesium can also help to protect your skin from external damage, as it helps to regulate cellular regeneration, increasing recovery when skin is disturbed and giving it strength when it’s under attack.

Incorporate Magnesium Into Your Bath Routine with Deep Sleep Bath Salts

Our Deep Sleep Bath Salts are infused with Magnesium, Peptides and a bouquet of floral essences designed to soothe tired muscles, and envelope the skin in nutrients and hydration, for a relaxing, skin-softening experience. As part of your evening skincare ritual, run a warm bath and add 2-3 scoops of Deep Sleep Bath Salts. The salts will dissolve and infuse your bath water into a skincare sanctuary, restoring moisture loss and replenishing nourishment for a healthy skin barrier.

Introducing Deep Sleep Bath Salts, Our Magnesium-Rich Nighttime Ritual

 

We believe in the de-stressing power of a bath. A relaxing way to recharge, to take 30 minutes for yourself to melt away the chaos of the day, and prepare your body and mind for a night of deep sleep. Bath rituals are sacred and we wanted to create a product that infuses the bath water surrounding and soaking your skin with rich-florals and essential minerals for your skin and body. Meet DEEP SLEEP BATH SALTS, rich in Magnesium, Peptides and a bouquet of skin-loving floral ingredients that work to soothe tired muscles, soften, nourish and deeply hydrate your skin. These bath salts transform your bath into a skin-softening sanctuary that instantly calms to prepare you for your best night’s sleep…ever.

When thoughtfully selecting ingredients for our bath salts, we wanted a combination of science-backed actives and our signature florals to achieve optimal benefits for your skin while you soak. Here are our holy grail ingredients in Deep Sleep Bath Salts that transform your bath water into a pool of skin benefits:

Magnesium

Our hero ingredient in the formula, we love Magnesium for its calming properties. Soaking in a warm bath with Magnesium can help to soothe tired muscles, promote a feeling of calming relaxation and deeply nourish your skin.

Peptides

Peptides can help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by increasing collagen production and stimulating the skin's natural repair processes. Peptides can also help to restore skin hydration levels and improve overall skin tone by boosting ceramide production. This helps to keep skin looking plump, firm, and radiant.

Evening Primrose

Evening primrose oil is rich in essential fatty acids which help to strengthen the skin's natural barrier and keep it properly hydrated. It also helps to promote cell renewal which can improve the overall texture and tone of the skin over time.

Wild Orchid

Wild Orchid is packed with essential antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from damage caused by environmental stressors and free radicals that cause oxidative stress…which can lead to pre-mature aging. 

Sacred Lotus

Sacred Lotus is an incredible source of essential fatty acids, which are important for healthy cell growth and keeping the skin hydrated and balanced. 

Jasmine

Jasmine is a great source of Vitamin E, an essential vitamin and antioxidant which helps to keep the skin hydrated by preventing moisture loss and strengthening your skin’s protective barrier against the environment.

Chamomile

We love Chamomile for its widely known calming properties for the skin. Chamomile can help soothe redness and irritation providing rich, hydrating relief to dry, sensitive skin.

How to Use

As part of your nighttime, self-care ritual, run a warm bath and add 2-3 scoops of DEEP SLEEP BATH SALTS directly into the water. The salts will dissolve and infuse your bath with vitamins, minerals and rich floral nutrients to calm your mind, body and beautifully soften your skin. 

For even more skin-smoothing hydration, apply our Luxury Body Serum and Hydrabloom Body Silk once out of your bath. 

Incorporating these luxurious formulas into your evening self-care routine will prepare your mind and body for a night of deep sleep, leaving you feeling rested and ready for the next day. You’ll wake up with soft, hydrated skin that’s balanced and more nourished than ever.

The Incredible Benefits of Vitamin C for Your Skin

 

Today is National Vitamin C Day, but we don’t need an excuse to talk about one of the most prized, iconic skincare ingredients on the market. Vitamin C is one of the most well-known, highly available skincare ingredients, for good reason. It’s brightening, antioxidant-rich, and renewing benefits for the skin are unmatched. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that plays a key role in promoting overall skin wellness. From brightening your complexion, to protecting against environmental stressors and free radical damage, the benefits of Vitamin C for your skin are vast, making it a hero ingredient to incorporate into your daily skincare ritual. 

Our Vitamin C Glow Drops are a powerful resurfacer, each citrus-infused drop is packed with clean actives to transform dull complexions and leave your skin balanced and visibly smoother. This innovative, fresh-pressed brightening serum delivers radiant, glass-like skin. 

 

 

Our Vitamin C Glow Drops are clinically proven to transform your skin. In a blind, clinical  study conducted with 100 consumers under a doctor's supervision, consumers experience incredible results:

  • 98% said skin looked brighter
  • 99% said skin felt more improved
  • 99% would recommend it to a friend
  • 100% said skin looked more glowy
  • 99% saw more radiance

Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Alex Zeitany recommends Vitamin C Glow Drops saying, “This product contains 20% Vitamin C, one of the highest percentages on the market, Ferulic Acid which works synergistically to boost the antioxidant effect of Vitamin C, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids in the form of gentle citrus (like lemon, pink grapefruit) and that’s going to provide a light chemical exfoliation to the skin. What’s so special about this serum is its oil base, which is going to hydrate and nourish the skin and help restore your skin barrier while giving you antioxidant benefits to brighten the skin and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ideal even for those with sensitive skin.”

 


Vitamin C for Sensitive Skin: Our Solution

With Vitamin C being such an active ingredient, it is known to often irritate sensitive skin and be too harsh for some delicate complexions. When we developed our Vitamin C Glow Drops we wanted a serum that was able to deliver all of the incredible benefits of Vitamin C, but in a gentle way, suitable for all skin types. Even the most sensitive complexions.

For starters we use a potent, best-in-class 20% active Vitamin C that is encapsulated in Glycerin (think of it like your daily supplement!) which allows deeper absorption into the skin in a much more gentle way.

What’s special about our Vitamin C Glow Drops is that its a hydrating oil-based formula with calming florals like Rose and Arnica to moisturize and nourish your skin and restore your skin barrier, while still delivering antioxidant benefits to help brighten and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Both Vitamin C + Ferulic Acid, which we included in the formula, have strong calming properties and work together synergistically to boost the antioxidant effects of Vitamin C and deliver maximum benefits. The addition of Ferulic Acid with Vitamin C makes a potent skincare solution, even if you have sensitive skin as it helps to calm irritation, boost collagen and deliver maximum antioxidant protection to your skin. Your sensitive skin is better shielded from environmental stressors that can otherwise irritate your complexion.

Let’s dive a little deeper into the reasons why Dermatologists and the SAINT JANE team believe in this powerhouse ingredient:


Brightening and Balancing Skin Tone

Vitamin C is known for its brightening properties, helping to even out skin tone and fade dark spots. Vitamin C works by inhibiting unwanted pigment development, often caused by overexposure to the sun and skin dehydration. Vitamin C can help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and leave your skin looking brighter, clearer, and more radiant.


Anti-Aging Benefits

Vitamin C is also incredibly effective at reducing the signs of aging. By stimulating collagen production, Vitamin C can help to firm up your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, Vitamin C can also help to protect your skin against environmental stressors such as pollution and UV radiation, which can cause premature aging and damage to skin cells.


Boosting Skin's Natural Defenses

Vitamin C plays an important role in boosting your skin's natural defenses. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps to protect your skin cells from free radical damage and other harmful molecules that can damage your skin. By boosting your skin's natural defenses, Vitamin C can help to protect your skin against environmental stressors, pollution, and UV radiation, keeping it looking healthy and radiant.


Promoting Skin Cell Turnover

Vitamin C also has incredible renewing properties for the skin by boosting collagen production and your skin’s elasticity. 

How to Incorporate Vitamin C into Your Skincare Routine

We recommend applying our Vitamin C Glow Drops daily as part of your AM skincare ritual. Using a Vitamin C serum in the morning, will give your skin the antioxidant support it needs throughout the day. After cleansing your skin, apply a full dropper of the serum onto dry skin and massage until completely absorbed. Follow up with a moisturizer like our Hydrating Petal Cream, and (of course!) SPF like our Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30.

Wearing a facial SPF is important for everyday but especially important after using a Vitamin C Serum. Gentle citrus actives like Lemon and Pink Grapefruit in our Vitamin C Glow drops act as light exfoliators to boost skin renewal. Your freshly regenerated skin cells need immediate protection from sun damage.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for your skin and one that you should incorporate daily for maintaining healthy radiant skin and that lit from within glow.

Luxury Active Floral: Blue Tansy, A Holy Grail for Skin Stress

Blue Tansy oil for anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial skin benefits. Purifies, calms and soothes sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Saint Jane uses delicate florals with modern actives to nurture your skin back into balance. Our goal with each clean, floral ingredient is to harness their powerful attributes to target specific skin problems like fine lines, dark circles, sun spots, dull skin, dry skin, clogged-pores, blemishes, redness and so many others.

When we developed Superflower Detox Serum, we wanted the formula to be a purifying powerhouse, giving your skin a true reset to restore balance. A detoxifying, daily green juice for your skin that strengthens your skin barrier, decongests pores and delivers rich antioxidants to shield your skin from environmental stressors. We were able to accomplish these goals in this superboost serum with powerful, floral essential oils…one of which is Blue Tansy.

French medical and herbal practitioners have long acknowledged the therapeutic qualities of Blue Tansy oil and it has long been used for its known anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Cultivated and thoughtfully purveyed from the Moroccan region, our farmers use a steam-distillation process in order to extract the most potent state of Blue Tansy oil, harnessing its maximum benefits for the skin. Compounds found in this versatile flower can help skin that’s prone to a range of problems, including dryness, sensitivity, irritation, breakouts, wrinkles and dullness. Making Blue Tansy a more than ideal ingredient in your daily skincare ritual, no matter your skin type…especially wildly sensitive, angry-at-everything skin.

We adore and celebrate Blue Tansy as one of our chosen luxury active florals for so many reasons, but here are a few:

Powerfully Calms Skin Stress

Blue Tansy is ideal for those with acne-prone skin, blemishes and other sensitivities. 

The magnificent blue color of Blue Tansy oil and the soothing effects come from chamazulene, a compound in the flower that has rich antioxidant activity. Whether you suffer from rosacea, eczema, acne or just general sensitivities, adding blue tansy to your skincare can help to bring your skin back to balance. Since Blue Tansy is known for its natural anti-inflammatory properties, it can offer general relief to tame flare-ups, and soothe redness and irritation. 

Replenishes Moisture to Dry Skin

Blue Tansy beautifully helps to provide moisturizing and nourishing relief to dry complexions and to even the most delicate and troubled complexions. Skin that is stripped of moisture and raw can receive hydrating relief from this powerful ingredient, plumping the skin and restoring bounce and elasticity, leaving many different skin types balanced, and noticeably glowier.

Calms and Soothes Sensitivity

Skin practitioners praise the calming effects of Blue Tansy with its antioxidant rich compounds to help shield your skin from free-radical damage, often the cause of so many skin sensitivities due to the breakdown of your skin’s natural defense system…the barrier. Even with Blue Tansy’s powerful effects, it is still ultra calming and soothing to the skin, giving you noticeable results, no matter your skin type.

Celebrity makeup artist KINDRA MANN counts on this moisturizer [Hydrating Petal Cream] often to prep skin before applying makeup for her clients. “The intelligent ingredients in this moisturizer make it a standout face lotion that I will use again and again and again,” she says.

A PORE SMOOTHING, PRIMING SPF

DON’T FORGET YOUR LIPS

Have you ever gone to apply your favorite lipstick and your lips are dry, preventing smooth and evenly distributed color? Not ideal. Keeping your lips smooth and hydrated is the key to preparing them for other lip products.

Our Luxury Lip Oils double as both a lip-drenching dose of hydration and a subtle wash of color to either wear on their own or to moisturize your lips before applying lipstick. Makeup artist REBECCA HICKEY reached for our Luxury Lip Oils on set of The White Lotus Season 2, to give the actors luminous, hydrated lips worthy of a Sicilian vacation.

Celebrity makeup artist LISA AHARON loves our Luxury Lip Oils for “keeping lips hydrated to create the illusion of volume that can be lost with age.” She adds that they can also “help to smooth lips and fill fine lines.” 

Incorporating just a few powerful, effective formulas into your skincare ritual can prep and treat your skin for your most flawless, long-lasting makeup application yet. Taking the time to prep your skin makes all the difference.
