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.

Worth the Hype: The Serum with 900+ 5-Star Reviews

luxury beauty serum

 

Luxury Beauty Serum was the very first product we created. It holds a special place in our product lineup and quickly rose to cult status among those looking to tackle skin concerns like redness, inflammation, dryness, and dullness to name a few. With over 900+ 5-star reviews across the web, Luxury Beauty Serum has transformed so many complexions and re-written skin stories. We read every single, authentic review and it not only reinforces our healing mission but inspires us to keep creating and innovating transformative skincare formulas.

Simply put, Luxury Beauty Serum is worth the hype, our concept is proven and the skincare community has spoken…but what truly makes this miracle elixir so special? Just a few drops as a last step in your skincare routine will provide multi-correctional benefits. This serum can truly do it all.

Calms Redness

Whether you have sensitive skin, mild redness or struggle with eczema or rosacea, Luxury Beauty Serum acts as a super-soothing treatment. Harnessing the ultra-calming and protective properties of ingredients like Sunflower and Calendula to soothe irritated skin, when it comes to calming redness, the results speak for themselves. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“I've had bad eczema my whole life and this calming serum has helped soothe it naturally without any burning, oily residue, or chemical ingredients!” — Rachel G.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Takes all redness away. I have mild rosacea and it gets exacerbated by everything that touches it! This product calms my skin down within seconds of applying it. My skin is much less flushed throughout the day when I have this on. Three drops covers my entire face -- a little goes a long way.” — Heather G.

Clears and Detoxifies

When it comes to blemishes and acne prone-skin, Luxury Beauty Serum is a powerful detoxifier. We hand selected several Luxury Active Florals like Helichrysum which are natural antibacterial ingredients to keep skin clean and free of toxins that often cause break-outs. Anti-inflammatory ingredients like Sea Buckthorn, calm existing breakouts while simultaneously helping to prevent future flare ups by controlling excess sebum production.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“I’m 37 and have struggled with breakouts well into my adult life. I’ve tried everything. Well, I think I finally have the final product and started using this every night. Everything is better! No breakouts!" — M. Charisma

Deeply Hydrates 

Oily and dry complexions alike need hydrating and nourishing moisture. When a skincare product like Luxury Beauty Serum works overtime to detoxify and calm the skin, if it's not delivering moisture, then it's incomplete. The drenching hydration this serum delivers deep into the skin is unparalleled. We infused every bottle with ultra-hydrating ingredients like Prickly Pear and Rosehip that naturally moisturize the skin. You are left with skin that not only is calm and clear, but plump, soft and supple.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Holy Water of skincare products! I religiously use the beauty serum at night before bedtime. It makes my skin feel amazing and I wake up with soft, smooth and plump skin. I've used other oils and serums but this is my go-to beauty product especially during the fall and winter months when my skin craves more moisture.” — Louise W. Continue reading

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.

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.

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!
