Meet the Maker:
Meet Sara! Girlboss, green beauty lover, holistic health enthusiast, D.C native and the the creator behind Skincando. Sara has traveled all over the world from Paris to Milan to Singapore studying beauty and beauty services. She practices green beauty as she lives a holistic lifestyle and is a firm believer in holistic health and fueling your body with whole foods & ingredients. From being an esthetician, to studying beauty around the world and helping others find their magic skincare routine, Skincando is a beautiful combination of her life’s work. Sara has taken the beauty world by storm and has created amazing multi-tasking products which she calls ‘green beauty 2.0’. This is more than just a skincare line, it is external nutrition that is meant to feed & nurture your skin to help you look and feel your best.
Sara’s story began with something many of us can relate to: she was suffering from skin issues. She always tried top of the line products and visited several beauty counters to find her saving grace, however, nothing worked and her skin eventually got worse. Chronic irritation, pimples and bumps… she felt defeated. Sara began her research and found the products she had been using in hopes to cure her skin (and most products in the beauty industry) are loaded with toxic ingredients. After discovering the truth, she decided to go green. Since this discovery and life mission to learn more about ingredients and studying beauty, Sara became inspired and decided to create her own products. No toxins, no parabens. After hours in her kitchen and over 1000 trials later, her miracle cream was born. This cream was used as an all-purpose healing salve that helped with eczema, bug bites, stretch marks and dry skin. She was on to something! Sara then created her Combat-Ready Balm, a thick multi-tasking healing cream that can remove eye makeup and moisturize hands + feet. Thousands of Combat-Ready Balms have been donated to soldiers overseas and it has been written about in the Washington Post, ALLURE Magazine, and even by Caroline Hirons. After the success of this product, Sara decided it was time to go back to the drawing board where she went back to working as a holistic aesthetician...
All about the new line:
Working as an aesthetician, Sara was using 7 different lines. However, there wasn’t a complete line she could really work with. It wasn’t until this past January Sara decided it was finally time to finish her Skincando skincare line. Everything has come together and Sara has created a complete magic organic skincare line you can use and trust on your skin. Her new line includes: cleansers, masks, a toner, a day lotion and a spot treatment. Some of Sara’s favorite products in the line include:
Pearl Mud Mask
Sage + Gold Toner
Liquid Silver Day Lotion
Skincando products are handcrafted from the finest organic, natural and locally-sourced ingredients (aka our favorite kind). All of the ingredients in Sara’s products are beautifully handcrafted from specialists and nothing from Skincando is made from a lab! During our event on Thursday, you will be able to test and shop these products with Sara as she will be sharing more of her story and answering any questions you may have about her new line, holistic health and green beauty!
