Everyone knows Vancouver’s Saje for its stylish diffusers and divine, effective essential oils. But the brand has actually always created skin care, including cleansers, moisturizers and sun protection. Now, it’s levelling up.
“Since launching in 1992 and creating our first 100 per cent natural skin-care products, awareness of the benefits of natural beauty and the science that supports it has grown tremendously,” says Saje senior manager of PR, communications and influencer marketing, Trevor T’úýemken Ellestad Van Somer. “This means new botanical ingredients and formulations are becoming available all the time.”
The brand has leveraged all it knows about natural ingredients to create a new skin-care collection of 14 products in four skin-care systems: normal/combination, sensitive, dry/mature, and acne-prone. “Everything from the gender-neutral aromas and powerful plant- and mineral-based ingredients to the final packaging and marketing was created to address any skincare concern someone is facing, no matter who they are or what stage of life they are in,” T’úýemken Ellestad Van Somer says.
Standouts include the Glow On Facial Oil, which has antioxidant parsley seed and raspberry seed, plus our fave squalane for hydration. It’s great for combo skin. If you’re acne-prone, reset your skin with the Detox Mode Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask. And if you have mature skin or need a little more moisture now the weather’s getting colder, try True Dew Moisturizer, which has hyaluronic acid, rose otto and avocado oil, and smells beautifully floral.
Bonus: they say don’t judge a book by its cover, but we say the best things come in beautiful packaging, and we’re in love with the sleek, minimalist design of these. Natural never looked so good. —Aileen Lalor
