product replacement alert: new face sunscreen!

ch-ch-ch-ch-changes! as kim mentioned in an earlier blog post, we are switching things up in the realms of serums and sunscreens. we are working with a new manufacturer that is more aligned with our values as a small business and along with a few other items, we have replaced our superlight spf15 moving forward with a new sunscreen.

we are thrilled to announce that we will now be stocking a face sunscreen from the miami-based company, beyond complexion, whose owner, olga valencia, worked closely with our beloved dr. fulton (the author of the acne bible, acne rx). olga has done extensive research on comedogenicity and has closely monitored the efficacy of her products for years through direct client interaction at her miami skin clinic.

beyond complexion’s daily facial moisturizer with spf30 is wonderfully lightweight and it offers more protection for longer periods of time while keeping your skin moisturized and healthy. it’s also perfect for helping prevent and reduce hyperpigmentation and redness. the combination of aloe and plant botanicals in this formula help nourish the skin while protecting it from uva and uvb rays. plus, it’s got double the spf of superlight, which means tons more protection!

as always, we’d love to hear your feedback! let us know what you think about the new beyond complexion sunscreen by emailing us at frontdesk@skinsalvationsf.com. thanks for your patience while we determine our next steps with our products!

CHARCOAL WASH
our original formula used to have wheat protein in it for skin conditioning, but we’ve replaced it with quinoa protein so it’s now 100% gluten free!

HYDRATING CLEANSER (replacing the green tea cleanser)
this new formula now removes makeup!!  with a base of aloe vera, glycerin and sunflower seed oil, it also contains healing aloe vera, rosemary, honey; antioxidant gluconolactone and an active form of vitamin b to improve water retention.

HYDRATING CREAM
has been reformulated to absorb better into the skin, and moisturize without leaving it greasy.  the honeysuckle extract in it has been used in traditional chinese medicine to reduce inflammation.  bisabolol derived from chamomile soothes the skin, and fructooligosaccharides derived from cane and beet sugars help bind moisture to the skin, and promote the growth of healthy bacteria to strengthen skin immunity.

HYDRATING GEL
no longer blue, artificially fragranced or sticky, this new formula is chock-full of moisturizing, healing, and anti-aging ingredients: honeysuckle, feverfew, sodium hyaluronate (part of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor), bisabolol, peptides for anti-aging, and powerhouse antioxidants gluconolactone and mangosteen.

BENZOYL PEROXIDE GEL
the same great, aloe vera based formula, but now in 1.75 ounce tubes for easy dispensing, and better product preservation.

and introducing our newest baby..

BODY LOTION (!)
after derma-e abruptly discontinued our beloved and acne-safe body lotion, we got to work on our own, sS approved formula.  after several revisions and testing, we’ve finally got our own body lotion in stock.  formulated for everyday use, we’ve infused it with lots of healing and anti-itching ingredients, to aid in the post-treatment process (like, after a back chemical peel).

please let us know how you like the new formulations – we hope you love them as much as we do, but please do let us know how we can improve them!

we are delighted to be able to continually improve our products and processes with your support.  we couldn’t do it without you, and we look forward to expanding our reach with you at our side!
