How to spoil yourself 101: Body Butter

Posted by Tina Chen  |  May 19, 2016 12:48:48 PM

What is body butter and how is it different from lotion?

Body butter, in our opinion is simply one of life’s secret little luxuries – affordable and efficient – it’s truly a pampering practice that’ll leave you feeling like royalty. Focus spreading body butter on body parts such as your legs, feet and hands, as the nutrients work in renewing the skin cells.

All body butters are rich in skin-nourishing vitamins; essential omega 3 fats (these fats benefit the body internally and externally) and key antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E are all included. Shea butter contains extra vitamin E to rejuvenate exhausted skin. Body butter is technically a super-concentrated lotion. By containing less water and more butters along with essential oils, it’s extra moisturizing.

Body butters form a protective barrier over the skin to retain moisture. Body butter also assists in stretch marks and scarring by healing the skin and helping it regenerate. This lush yet surprisingly lightweight hydrator delivers the perfect at home remedy for oneself, so treat yourself this winter to a body butter from Sabon.

Scientific Evidence Supports Positive Effects of Jasmine

Posted by Sabon NYC  |  Mar 7, 2013 10:41:41 AM

Jasmine Flowers

Recent scientific research has found the scent of Jasmine to induce mood enhancing effects such as relaxation, anxiety relief and sleep induction.

According to the “Journal of Biological Chemistry”, researchers tested hundreds of fragrances on both humans and mice to see how they affected the function of GABA (a neurotransmitter that aids to induce calming effects). The fragrance of Jasmine was the strongest in amping up GABA response, similar to the effects of the common drug Valium. “Applications in sedation, anxiety, excitement and aggression relieving treatment and sleep induction therapy are all imaginable. The results can also be seen as evidence of a scientific basis for aromatherapy”, Bochum Professor Hanns Hatt said in a statement.

It is rather (and unfortunately) common for us to suffer from feelings of anxiety, sleep deprivation, stress and the like. If you happen to experience these kinds of symptoms, we recommend you try this natural remedy before turning to synthetic solutions (such as over-the-counter or prescription medicine).

The use of essential oils and aromatherapy as a form of medicine is dated all the way back to the eleventh century. The efficacy of these methods continues to be supported by scientific research today.

We invite you to discover the beneficial effects of this calming fragrance. Jasmine is one of our favorite fragrances, proudly offered as its own line in the collection, including: Deep Exfoliating Body Salt Scrub, The Body Gel Polisher (a daily body exfoliator), Moisturizing Shower Oil, Deep Nourishing Body Lotions, Sorbet Body Gel (a light weight cooling moisture lotion) and Eau de Toilette Perfume.

Jasmine is also the chosen scent of our entire Hair Care Line, made from natural plant extracts found only in the Amazon Rainforest.

Sometimes finding relief is as simple as awarding oneself with personal time, away from any distractions or noise. The Shower (and Bath) makes for a great escape. Try it. Take this time for yourself to slow down, pay attention to your breath and enjoy what the gift of the senses have to offer in this moment.

You may be pleasantly surprised.

How to Keep Your Skin Fresh this Winter

Posted by Sabon NYC  |  Dec 5, 2012 3:52:37 PM

How to Keep Your Skin Fresh this SummerHow to Keep Your Skin Fresh this SummerHow to Keep Your Skin Fresh this Summer

It’s a battle every year: the cold weather sweeps in and we’re forced to deal with dry, flaky skin. It’s itchy, uncomfortable, and it looks even worse than it feels. While dry skin can start as a small annoyance, if left untreated it can sometimes lead to dermatitis, a more severe condition characterized by red, bumpy skin inflammation.

Fortunately, most dry skin arises from external causes – like cold weather – and can be nicked with topical care. Here are a few guidelines for ensuring your skin is well taken care of.

  1. Shower sensibly. Long showers can be lovely, but if you stand in the stream for too long while the water is hot, your morning ritual could be working against you. Hot water will wash away the oils your skin already produces. Also, don’t overuse soap when you bathe – it will rob you of soft skin even faster.
  2. Not too wet, not too dry. When you rub on lotion, be sure that your skin is damp before application to work along with the product. As soon as you hop out of the shower is best – your pours will be open and you’ll be wet all over. Just pat down the dry areas of skin before you slather on anything. You’ll trap the moisture better that way.
  3. Use natural products. It’s important to use lotions that are based on natural ingredients. Oils with natural origins are best to gently saturate your skin. Sabon’s body butter is a good choice for especially thirsty skin. It uses a natural triumvirate: shea butter, cocoa butter, and bees’ wax.
  4. Don’t scratch. Even when it seems impossible, you can’t claw at your skin during dry air (and dry skin) season. Itching will only further irritate your skin. Don’t prolong the problem; treat it.
  5. Exfoliate! Especially in the winter, exfoliating is very important. Dry winter skin is the result of dry skin cell build up. As we tend to releive this with only applying heavy creams, many of us forget that the most important ritual to healthy skin is to first exfoliate the dry skin away! Increase your exfoliation routine this season to remove the dead skin cells, and then moisturize the new cells, resulting in healthier, moister skin! Try our Body Scrubs, which we reccommend using 2-3 times per week. This will enhance the skins glow with immediate results!


Your skin is your biggest, most vulnerable organ. As cold weather creeps closer and closer, take good care of your skin so you can look and feel better!

Health and Beauty Companies Going Green

Posted by admin  |  Aug 20, 2009 12:53:03 PM

As more people are grasping the need to implement green decisions into their everyday lives, we are seeing a definite surge in natural and organic products. From electronics and appliances to household cleaners, fashion and cosmetics, brands all over the world are responding to this accelerating demand. Here are some of the most impressive players in the arena of natural, organic health and beauty:

The Hain-Celestial Group Shoppers who want to buy natural health and beauty products that are free from animal-derived ingredients, and that are not tested on animals, should consider United States brands such as Zia Natural Skin Care and Jason Natural Products. Both these brands come under the Hain-Celestial Group. Boasting both a recycling symbol and a natural ingredients logo, products from Zia and Jason are favorites with consumers who want to purchase cruelty-free beauty items that are responsibly developed, manufactured and packaged.

Sabon The company that has maintained impeccable quality standards since opening the doors to its first store in Tel Aviv in 1991, has recently been offered the ECOCERT® seal of approval for its new, fine organic skin care line. ECOCERT®, the French institute and organic certifying agency, has established that Sabon's organic line of products meets incredibly strict organic standards. There is an organic day cream, face serum, eye lifting serum, hand cream, foot cream, butter cream, body scrub and olive oil soap available from Sabon and they each come full with the purest of medicinal plants, natural oils and other essential nutrients. Not only does Sabon source, blend, manufacture and package their products in environmentally responsible ways, the company is also known for a generous and kind policy all around. They even help their consumers be responsible - rumor has it its New York City stores will take the recyclable glass jars off the hands of consumers that don't have access to their own recycling facilities.

Korres With roots in the first homeopathic pharmacy in Greece, this brand sells its natural products in specialty stores and boutiques around the United States and in shops and pharmacies around the world. While some consumers are confused by the company's pharmacy past, those who research and learn soon discover this is a nice, natural line of quality products.

Waleda For an 85-year old, this company is incredibly vital and energetic. The Swiss organic and biodynamic body care products of Waleda are BDHI certified which means they abide by a set of European rules on organic development, manufacturing and distribution. Creamy body washes with Lavender, body scrubs with birch and other natural products make up their collection of organic little luxuries.

Aubrey Organics Fragrance is not to be forgotten when discussing health and beauty companies going green. It is hard to find pure, organic fragrances still but Aubrey Organics does have a line of natural fragrances, one collection for men and one for women ¬- and for that they deserve some praise. From Spring Floral to Ocean Waters, their scents may not sound too original, but they sure are organic.

All natural and organic segments in health, beauty and cosmetics are growing as the result of an increasing organic awareness. If we all take the time to learn about the brands out there that are making an effort to bring us new, better products we could help strengthen our own health as well as the health of our planet.
