HELLO & HAPPY TUESDAY!!

 

  

I don’t know about you, but I love hand crafted products from unique companies..

 

 

Sans offers high quality skincare sans the chemical, cruelty, and high prices..

 

I had heard wonderful things about this product line from a friend in Maryland where Sans is located, and whether it was the name or the clean look of the packaging.. I couldn’t wait to sample and share their creations!!

 

From body scrubs to fancy eye serums and the the whipped texture of their products..

 

 

I truly love the personal touches behind Sans Skincare

We have very carefully selected the most valuable ingredients for skin balancing, anti-aging, and cell regeneration that nature offers. The ingredients we use in Sans Nourish Serums are made of very small molecules so the skin absorbs them quickly and deeply, allowing these active ingredients to penetrate the skin faster and more effectively. This in turn improves elasticity and firmness and can make the difference between dull skin and youthful, radiant skin. And the most wonderful thing of all is that you can use these nourishing serums with the peace of mind of knowing that they are 100% natural, chemical free, toxin free. Nothing bad in them…ever. 

 

Sans is a 100% chemical free skin care brand created with the thought that “sometimes it’s not only what you put into a product that makes it truly wonderful, but also what you leave out”. Formulated with pure and nourishing plant extracts, our skin care products quickly absorb into the deep layers of the skin and release healthy, nutrient-rich benefits. 

 

   

 

“When nature provides us with such exquisite and effective botanicals that benefit our health, soothe our minds, and nourish our bodies, why use anything artificial?”

Why Sans?

 

Our goal is to provide an alternative to the skin care products that are currently being sold. Through hundreds of studies, articles, and reports, we have been made keenly aware of the dangerous chemicals contained in the wonderfully smelling, silky creams and lotions that we slather on our skin every day. These creams and lotions with their many toxins are quickly absorbed into our bloodstream and travel throughout our bodies. And these known carcinogens can profoundly and sometimes permanently affect how our bodies work. Very few product lines are actually 100% chemical free, most contain at the very least a preservative. There are no natural preservatives, some preservatives are just less toxic than others. It is with this in mind that we set out to create a line of skin care that is completely, 100% without chemicals or preservatives…of any kind. With our special formulations we are able to offer skin care products that are 100% chemical free, 100% safe, and 100% good for your body. 

 

 

 

SANS SKIN CARE INGREDIENTS I LOVE

Pomegranate Seed Oil 

 

Pomegranate Seed Oil, derived from the seed of the Pomegranate plant, was recently included in the elite group of superfruits because of its amazing health benefits. It carries excellent skin care properties including moisturizing, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It promotes rapid cell regeneration and rejuvenation, delivering a powerful anti-aging effect as it helps the skin retain moisture and maintain proper circulation and hydration. A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology showed that Pomegranate Seed Oil stimulates keratinocytes, the major cells found in the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. It appears that Pomegranate Seed Oil helps to regenerate these cells and effectively slows the formation of wrinkles and marks related to aging. Pomegranate Seed Oil contains a host of powerful antioxidant components, which are responsible for brightening or lightening the skin tone. In extending the life of fibroblasts (a connective tissue cell that makes and secretes collagen proteins), Pomegranate Seed Oil promotes the production of collagen and elastin, which give strength and support to the skin.

Sweet Orange Essential Oil

 

Sweet Orange Oil has a number of beauty benefits. It increases the production of collagen, which is necessary for the health of the skin. It reduces puffiness and removes fine lines from the skin. Sweet Orange Oil discourages the formation of wrinkles, hence delaying aging. It promotes blood flow toward the skin and brings a natural radiance to it.

Borage Seed Oil

 

Borage Seed Oil is actually the world’s richest source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA, an omega-6 fatty acid, is vital for the formation and maintenance of healthy skin cells. The body produces GLA from linolenic acid, another essential fatty acid found in various foods. Borage Seed Oil is unique because it provides a direct source of GLA, so body does not have to create GLA from linolenic acid. This essentially cuts out the hard work that would normally be performed by your body. As you age, your body become less efficient in converting linolenic acid to GLA, which is why Borage Seed Oil is so very beneficial for mature skin.

This amazingly luscious, all natural Lavender Face Butter will very quickly absorb into your skin leaving a smooth and silky feel, helping to soothe redness in the skin and reduce inflammation. It is a wonderful primer first thing in the morning for under makeup, and a relaxing scent at bedtime. You will awaken with the softest skin ever!

 Usage Directions

 

Use morning, night, and throughout the day as needed. Since this butter contains no water as a filler, the butter is very concentrated. Use very little, if it feels too greasy then you’ve used too much. Your skin will tell you just how much to use. Avoid getting into eyes. Avoid getting water or wet fingers into the jar.

 

Please Note

 

Since our products are made completely chemical free, they will feel and behave differently than the commercial brands that you may be used to. This product contains no chemical thickener, and may get soft in warmer weather. This will in no way harm the butter. To firm it back up just put it into the refrigerator for an hour or so.

Lavender Oil is perhaps one of the gentlest of all essential oils, unlike most oils, which must be diluted before applying, Lavender Oil can be applied ‘neat’ to the skin. Lavender Oil has strong antiseptic and anti-fungal properties, this helps to reduce scarring and speeds healing of the skin. Lavender Oil is a wonderful anti-inflammatory. When inflammation of the skin is reduced, there is less redness and blotchiness, allowing the complexion to be more evenly colored. One of Lavender Oil’s most important properties is its ability to act as a circulatory stimulant. When the circulatory system is enhanced by the use of this essential oil, the increase in blood flow means more nutrients are being delivered to the skin along with much needed oxygen to the cells. This is essential to healthier cells, and the rejuvenation of cells.

 

 

Usage Directions

 

Use when skin is warm and wet. Rub gently into skin with either your hand or a washcloth to exfoliate and moisturize. Scrub until the sugar melts then continue massaging the nourishing oils into the skin. As you massage it will feel oily but please resist the urge to wash it off. After massaging for a few minutes rinse with warm water. Dry skin as usual. Skin will be so silky and moisturized you won’t need a moisturizer after your shower!

 

Please Note

 

Since our products are made completely chemical free, they will feel and behave differently than the commercial brands that you may be used to. This product contains no preservatives, because of this, it is recommended that no water get into the jar. How do you do that, after all it’s a shower scrub…we recommend before getting into the shower, scooping one usage amount of scrub out of jar, putting it into a smaller container and taking the smaller container into the shower. This way the remainder of the scrub will be protected from the water. We realize that this is a bit inconvenient, but the greater benefit is being able to use a chemical free product! Please keep in mind that the oils in the scrub might make for a slippery tub or shower.

7/10 (Love the scent, love the concept, not sure if it offers more than any other essential oils that could be applied to the eyes)

Update 12/15: product lost all of its smell. I’m not sure what that’s indicative of, but if you don’t finish the product fast enough, it spoils as there are no parabens.
