What is Double Cleansing?
Very simply put, double cleansing is a 2-step process that helps to achieve a much deeper clean. Step 1: Use an oil cleanser that lifts and dissolves the makeup, and sebum, that has become trapped in the pores. An oil cleanser because makeup and sebum are lipophilic (meaning they dissolve in oil), and Step 2: Wash away any remaining dirt and pollutants by using a very gentle AND moisturizing foaming facial cleanser. Always moisturize with a good moisturizer at the end of the cleanse.
Try double cleansing every night for 2 weeks, you’ll see the difference it can make.

Why We Never Use Water In Our Products
Water itself is not bad; we need water, it sustains life. But, therein lies the problem. Where there is water, there can be life in the form of bad bacteria and harmful microbes. If there is even a drop of water in a product that is applied to the skin, a preservative MUST be used. It makes no difference whether that preservative is natural or synthetic, if the preservative is doing its job, it is killing bad stuff that can grow in the product . . . this is good. What is not good however, is the preservative will also kill the beneficial, good bacteria (flora) that live on our skin and protect our immune system. This can severely compromise our health. We must protect our skin flora, our microbiome, for our health and wellbeing.

Whipped Face Butter
My sister first got this for me as a present, and I am addicted! I’m now on my third jar. I’ve tried other face butters and lotions and nothing compares. I have very dry skin and this works like magic, leaving me feeling moisturized but not greasy.
Foaming Facial Cleanser
Heaven in a bottle! This foaming facial cleanser does it all. It cleans and hydrates. It smells great and feels fabulous. It's soft and gentle yet the foam really cleans off the make-up. NO more make-up on my towels! A little goes a long way!
Eye Makeup Remover
Such a nice remover. Takes off all my waterproof makeup perfectly. It's a nice oil, I do sleep with it on as it says in the description and I really love how it makes the skin around my eyes so soft in the morning.
Whipped Body Butter
I have to say I didn't know what a butter was and didn't know what to expect. This is an incredible product. It is exactly like they say, a whipped butter that moisturizes beautifully. It does last all day too, I don't find myself reapplying throughout the day. I HIGHLY recommend.
Nourish Face Serum
The GOAT of the Sans Skincare line!!! I love all Sans products but the night serum is my favorite. It turned my skin from dry and drab to firm and fabulous!!! If you can only have one product . . . this is the one. It also travels well and will keep you in business . . . no matter where you go!
Our highest priority will always be the well-being of our customers and our beautiful planet.

I saw this on TV and couldn't help but begin my research! It was so interesting to me. Methane is a potent greenhouse...
This is actually a very common question. Dry skin and dehydrated skin are often used interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. Here's what...
