More Than a Sunscreen, Meet Luxury Sun Ritual

Sunscreen is a non-negotiable part of everyone's skincare routine. Up to 90% of signs of aging come from the sun, and 1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime, which makes SPF one of the most important things you can do for your skin. Choosing a daily, effective sunscreen can be overwhelming, so we developed the perfect formula that not only powerfully protects your skin but does so much more.

What's Your Skin Type? Saint Jane Solutions for Every Complexion

What's Your Skin Type? Skincare Solutions for Every Complexion

At SAINT JANE, when our teams go to work on developing a new skincare product, your complexions and the individual nuances of your skin are at the forefront of our minds. How we can craft formulas that benefit a myriad of skin concerns, products that multi-task and bring balance, and most importantly beautifully support the multitude of skin types of our clients.

Our skin types are as different as our personalities, and knowing your skin type is crucial in finding the right rituals to support your skin. While skin types can be complex, your skin will likely fall into one or more of these categories: Dry, Oily, Combination, Normal or Sensitive. 

No matter your skin type, there are SAINT JANE powerhouse products that beautifully and efficaciously address skin concerns. Here are our recommendations according to your skin type:

DRY SKIN

Having dry skin can be both uncomfortable and frustrating, as hydration plays such a key role in the overall function of our skin on the surface and the cellular level. Hydrating ingredients are always present in our formulas because they are a consistent need across every skin type, but especially for dry skin. If your skin is in desperate need of moisture and hydration, you need:

  • HYDRATING PETAL CREAM, our light-weight but deeply hydrating daily moisturizer. This petal packed cream can be applied both morning and night after cleansing and serums. We infuse this daily hydrator with powerful luxury active florals like Hibiscus, Pink Lotus and Honeysuckle for petal soft skin and potent hydrating benefits.
  • LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM, our best-selling powerhouse serum with ultra hydrating and nourishing ingredients like Omega-3 fatty acids, Sunflower, Rosehip and Sea Buckthorn. This beautiful blend of luxury active florals, not only calm, nourish and hydrate the skin, but also locks in moisture. The ideal final step in your dry skin routine.

OILY SKIN

The biggest myth of having oily skin is that you have to deprive your skin of moisturizing products. Oily skin is caused by the overproduction of sebum, and is off-balance. The solution is to work towards balancing your skin and incorporating ingredient-driven products into your routine. Two of the best balancing ingredients for oily skin types are Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol. We have two beautiful products that happen to have these balancing ingredients:

  • HYDRATING PETAL CREAM boasts Hyaluronic Acid as a hero ingredient in the formula, and because this daily cream is so light-weight and absorbs quickly, it's the perfect hydrator for oily skin as well.
  • SACRED SLEEP OVERNIGHT REPAIR is our 0.5% Retinol solution formulated as an overnight treatment. Retinol is a powerful ingredient as it can aid in building up collagen and firming the skin. As a result, you can experience tighter pores that emit less oil for a more balanced complexion. 

SENSITIVE SKIN

We have a special place in our hearts for those with sensitive skin. So much so, that every formula we create is infused with calming ingredients that soothe the skin and counteract any active ingredients traditionally known to irritate sensitivities. If you have sensitive skin, then you know it can be difficult to find products that are gentle enough to be effective, but also that don’t cause flare ups, redness or inflammation. We especially love recommending these products to our clients with sensitive skin:

  • THE C-DROPS, our gentle yet effective 10% Vitamin C serum, is the perfect solution for those with sensitive skin. Vitamin C is a highly active ingredient, and traditionally can be problematic for sensitive skin types. When we formulated The C-Drops, we included powerfully calming ingredients to counteract any harshness that Vitamin C delivers. These Vitamin C brightening drops are gentle but still very effective. 
  • LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM has been a cult-favorite among our sensitive skin clients. This golden elixir is centered around visibly calming and soothing the skin from concerns like redness, irritation and inflammation. Among the many ingredients in the efficacious blend are Sunflower, Helichrysum and Marula that are naturally calming for the skin.

COMBINATION SKIN

This skin type can be tricky, as your skin can experience many concerns at once. Dry and oily areas in the same complexion need balance. Incorporating products that hydrate dry areas and exfoliate/resurface oily areas are important in your routine. Combination skin will greatly benefit from the same products recommended for both DRY and OILY skin types:

NORMAL

If your skin falls in the “normal” category, then lucky you! Your skin is balanced and can handle both hydrators and active treatments (all of the above!).

FROM PETAL TO SHELF - OUR COMMITMENT TO CLEAN AND SUSTAINABLE INGREDIENTS

 

The term “clean beauty” gets thrown around a lot in our industry, but what does it actually mean? Clean beauty products are supposed to be made without ingredients shown or suspected to harm human health or the environment. The truth is, however, that government regulations in the United States regarding clean products have not caught up with those in Europe and other parts of the world. Companies are relatively free to define their own version of “clean”, which makes it all the more important that you do your own research about which products you’re bringing into your home and using on your skin.

 

 

At SAINT JANE, we have always been committed to formulating our products with clean, sacred botanicals that empower your skin. We embrace ancient ingredients and the benefits they hold, while understanding that we have a responsibility to do so sustainably. We acknowledge the ancient practices and cultures that have been using our ingredients for centuries, while taking the opportunity to modernize them in a responsible way. SAINT JANE’s formulas embody this unique collaboration between time-honored practices and traditions and modern green technology. The result is sustainably cultivated and performance-driven skincare products that nourish the skin and the soul.

 

When sourcing our ingredients, we employ a “glocal” approach. 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. Below are just few examples of how we source our ingredients:

 

  • Hibiscus: We work with a family owned and operated Hibiscus farm in Hawaii. These beautiful flowers are antioxidant rich thanks to the volcanic rich soil indigenous to the Islands. The Hibiscus are cultivated by hand to ensure efficacy.

 

  • Prickly Pear Oil: Native to Morocco, Prickly Pear has been revered by locals for centuries. Our oil is produced by a local company that has been in business for generations. Our partnership with this small, family operated company supports and sustains the community at large by providing jobs to thousands of people and helping to protect the land from industrial farming.

 

  • Yeast Extract: We chose to formulate our award-winning Hydrating Petal Cream with Yeast Extract as a sustainable way of eliminating animal collagen as an ingredient while still reaping the benefits of collagen for skin.

 

  • Fermented Algae: We’ve collaborated with an innovative French company which has discovered multiple ways of growing and harvesting sea algae in the open sea inside a private and protected sea farm where they cultivate algae - the flowers of the sea" on submerged systems to guarantee the perpetuation of the species.

 

In addition to thoughtfully curating our sourcing partners, we are also committed to transparency. We provide a detailed list of all ingredients used in each of our products on our website, as well as 3rd party lab testing results so you can be sure of the safety and efficacy of our products when choosing to incorporate them into your skincare routine.

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.

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's benefits for skin are numerous. It 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!
