I’m Sage, Founder of The Stillroom Botanicals.
I left the medical industry where I worked as an Immunohematology scientist to channel my interest in chemistry and biology into creating the effective natural skincare I couldn’t find on the market.
I’ve always been a total skin care lover, but it wasn’t until I was pregnant with my son that I began paying close attention to the ingredients in the creams, scrubs, masks and bath treats I used so often.
I was shocked at the ingredients in my luxurious – and expensive – skin care products. I was paying for, and soaking myself in, what was mostly synthetic fillers. I realized these companies could not meet my need for active, natural ingredients.
So, I decided to do it myself.
At first, I was concerned that mixing luxurious butters with nourishing oils wouldn’t make a nice cream on its own. I mean, there had to be a reason the big guys resorted to all those fillers and toxins, right?
Wrong. My creams were the best I'd ever used.
I found that using only active ingredients that nourish and protect skin resulted in a far superior, more effective product.
Without texturizers, results were achieved through REAL hydration and nourishment. Essential oils used for scenting added their own unique aromatic properties and finally met my need for fragrances that weren't overpowering, but spa like.
The best part was that results didn’t fade as the product faded from the skin, because they weren’t superficial.
Thus, began my mission statement:
To create truly pure, clean and effective skincare treatments.
My products would be game-changers, with time-honored ingredients used as they were meant to be used. My ingredients would be a selling point, not a drawback. I created and tested innumerable recipes but stuck to my mission, and after much trial and error, I have a line of skincare products that I am proud to finally present to the world.
I can't wait for you to try them!
