Our Floral Story: Petal-Powered Skincare

Luxury Active Florals in Every Formula

Floral-Obsessed

I’ve always had a deep love for florals. The way they can brighten your mood, lift your spirit, and the way they can recollect memories of people you’ve known and places you’ve been. It wasn’t until I started building SAINT JANE, and diving into clean ingredient research that I discovered just how powerful florals were for transforming the skin. Using florals to nurture, heal and pamper the skin dates back centuries and these powerful petals have been revered across the globe in so many different cultures.

For example, Cleopatra the Egyptian beauty, was said to have rose water baths regularly and cleansed her skin and body with its powerful elixir. Shakespeare has written about the queen’s beauty ritual in ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ and he even mentioned how  Cleopatra’s cedar-wood ships bore the scent of rose water. 

Helichrysum or “Immortelle” has been used since the civilization of Ancient Greece, where it was commonly used after battles to heal wounds and care for the skin. Helichrysum essential oil was mixed with honey or olive oil and applied topically to treat skin conditions like burns and scars and even respiratory and digestive issues due to its revered anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. 

So many globally renowned florals have rich histories and stories of healing and transformation like these. Our approach to skincare is inspired by and centered around these potent florals that have been used for centuries to nurture the skin. We are not about the quick fix but rather our formulas honor the innate power of mother nature.

Our bouquet of potent florals throughout our clean, luxury skincare collection includes some of the most powerful petals on the globe, thoughtfully sourced and masterfully blended into each unique elixir that target common skin concerns like sensitivity, dryness, dullness, fine lines, skin texture and hyperpigmentation…just to name a few. Discover a selection of the florals we are so proud to infuse into our collection.

SPF 101 With Dr. Nina Desai, Board Certified Dermatologist

Dr. Nina Desai, Board Certified Dermatologist answers all your SPF questions

When it comes to skin care, sun protection is of the utmost importance and should be a non-negotiable part of your daily ritual. Protecting your skin from harmful UVA/UVB radiation is crucial for both anti-aging and skin cancer prevention. When choosing and applying sunscreen, there are many factors. How much should you apply? How often should you reapply? Which sunscreen is right for you? What is a mineral sunscreen? Luckily, we asked a Board-Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Nina Desai, to give us the full SPF 101 with Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30. Dermatologists know best!

Q: What is a mineral sunscreen?

Dr. Desai: A mineral sunscreen, or a physical sunscreen, is made of either Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide. These products sit on the top layer of the skin and reflect harmful UV rays, acting as a barrier between your delicate skin and the damaging effects of the sun. Mineral sunscreens are safe for everyone, even children!

Q: How much sunscreen should you apply?

Dr. Desai: “I like to recommend the “3 Finger Method” when applying sunscreen. This means you disperse enough sunscreen to cover 3 fingers. Then you apply that amount to your face and your neck. Be sure to blend thoroughly. I love Luxury Sun Ritual because it doesn’t leave a white-cast like a lot of mineral sunscreens. The unique formula blend has a slight tint, which leaves an invisible, pore-smoothing finish while also keeping the skin hydrated.”

Q: How often should you reapply sunscreen?

Dr. Desai: Regardless of if you are wearing a mineral or a chemical sunscreen, you need to reapply your sunscreen every 2-3 hours if you are out in the sun, right after swimming and if you are exercising and sweating, especially.

Q: Is Luxury Sun Ritual a Tinted Foundation?

Dr. Desai: Luxury Sun Ritual’s unique formula combines 10% Zinc Oxide with a hint of color. It’s important to know that this product is not a foundation or a color product. This is a sunscreen and the hint of color balances out the white cast often left by Zinc Oxide, without sacrificing any of the powerful sun protection benefits. 

Q: Who do you recommend Luxury Sun Ritual to?

Dr. Desai: Absolutely anyone can use Luxury Sun Ritual, this product with its amazing ingredients provides superior sun protection while also nourishing and hydrating the skin, as well as reducing skin redness. When you apply this product you’ll notice your pores are blurred and your skin feels supple and smooth. This product is great worn alone or under makeup. A beauty must-have!

 

Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30 blends invisibly into the skin leaving zero white cast.

Q: Does Luxury Sun Ritual work for all skin tones?

Dr. Desai: As a dermatologist  and a woman of color I have tried countless sunscreens that leave a white cast on my skin...leaving you looking like a ghost! Luxury Sun Ritual has a unique formula that has a hint of color that balances out any white cast that mineral sunscreens often leave behind. It blends seamlessly into the skin and leaves you with an invisible, hydrating soft-focus finish. It is both wearable and inclusive for all skin tones. 


Luxury Sun Ritual is so much more than sunscreen. In addition to providing dermatologist-approved sun protection, with 10% Zinc Oxide and an SPF of 30, this unique formula softly blurs pores, beautifully primes your skin for makeup, and hydrates and calms your skin with Desert Rose, Hibiscus and Jasmine. Your all-in-one, beauty must-have!

Luxury Active Florals: Desert Rose

Desert Rose for hydrating, protective skin benefits

 

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. Continue reading
