At SAINT JANE, florals have always been our muse when developing our luxury, meticulously clean formulas with your skin in mind. Sustainably-sourced and respectfully harvested, our florals are hand selected to harness their innate abilities to deeply nourish, hydrate and protect your skin. These sacred florals have been used for centuries for their powerful benefits for skin wellness.
After more than 2 years of research and rigorous testing, we formulated our LUXURY SUN RITUAL SPF 30 with luxury active florals specifically known to thrive in dry, harsh, warm climates. Among these florals found in our innovative formula is DESERT ROSE, also known as “the resurrection plant” in Latin American culture. This resilient plant is known for its ability to spring back to life, surviving even the most extreme dehydration.
How is this possible? Scientists believe the DESERT ROSE is able to gather and store sugars and amino acids that strengthen the elasticity of its cell walls, which keeps them in tact. This rare and remarkable ability produces the same moisture-boosting super powers when applied to your skin. DESERT ROSE also acts as both a humectant and an emollient, meaning it takes on both roles of both drawing moisture into your skin, and locking it in place preventing moisture loss. Its dual-purpose roll even outperforms Hyaluronic Acid when it comes to hydration.
DESERT ROSE is a triple threat when it comes to skincare benefits. Not only is it deeply hydrating and effective in increasing moisture levels, but it also has a positive impact on your skin’s protective outer barrier. Because it is an emollient and can lock in moisture, it can strengthen your skin barrier, the protective layer of your skin. The stronger your skin barrier, the better your overall skin wellness. Skin density is also positively affected by DESERT ROSE. Increasing skin density can transform the way your skin looks and feels, with reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How does DESERT ROSE perform in our sunscreen? Because wearing SPF should be a daily part of everyone’s skincare routine, formulating LUXURY SUN RITUAL with multi-tasking ingredients was important to us. The hydrating, protective, and nourishing benefits of DESERT ROSE allow this product to act as so much more than a sunscreen. Applying LUXURY SUN RITUAL every morning acts as a primer, moisturizer and sunscreen in one step. Ideal for sun-sensitive skin, your skin will stay hydrated and nourished while receiving crucial sun protection.
