The importance of clean beauty is well known. At Skylar, it's who we are. Below we explain 3 reasons to make the switch to clean and detox your beauty routine.
 
1. Free of Toxins and Parabens 

Skylar fragrances are free of parabens and toxic chemicals. What does this mean? When fragrances are added to the skin, they do not just it on the surface. In fact, our pores actually absorb a lot of the fragrance, similar to how moisturizer hydrates by being absorbed into the skin. When traditional perfumes are absorbed into the body, toxins lurking in those fragrances are also absorbed. This can cause issues such as skin irritations, allergies, migraines and can even cause allergies in babies.

Here are just a few chemicals found in traditional perfumes that our fragrances do not include:

Our products are free of:

Parabens

Phthalates

Sulfates SLS & SLES

Synthetic Dyes

Synthetic Musks

Allergens

2. Hypoallergenic

At Skylar, we do not use harmful chemicals or allergens. Some natural ingredients can cause sensitivities in some people (lavender and grapefruit are just a few examples). In order to make our scents hypoallergenic, we replace those allergens with safe non-toxic substitutes. All our scents contain some synthetic ingredients for this reason. As a clean beauty brand, our philosophy is to use the best ingredients nature and science have to offer so you can smell beautiful without a worry. 

3. Cruelty-Free

There is nothing we love more than our furry friends. All Skylar, products are vegan and never tested on animals.

We never use any animal by-products (commonly used in perfumes) including musk (from deer). We think fragrances should only spread love and happiness, always!

Our latest (and greatest) guide to layering is here! You may be wondering, “Why should I layer my fragrance?” Layering is a great way to expand your scent collection and favorite scent profiles, but it is also a great way to make your fragrance last longer. It is a fun way to experiment with the different Skylar scents to find even more combinations to match your mood or occasion.

Layering with Skylar is easy! You can use either our full-size sprays or travel rollies. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Choose your base. Select your favorite Skylar scent that you would like to anchor your combo with. Spritz or roll over your wrists and neck without tapping or rubbing.
  2. Add your complementary scent directly on top with a spritz or a roll.
  3. Resist the urge to rub or tap together. These beautiful aromas will melt together on the warmth of your skin!

Learn the notes behind your favorite Skylar combination or discover an entirely new scent sensation!

Arrow + Meadow = Our most full-bodied floral paired with our most sensual base. The luscious jasmine in Meadow blends beautifully with the subtle warmth and vanilla notes of Arrow.

Capri + Isle = The sheer, beachy base of Isle layered with the bright citrus pop of Neroli and grapefruit in Capri will make you feel like you’re on an Island Getaway (no matter where you are!).

Meadow + Capri = Summer nights in an instant! The floral blooms of tuberose and night blooming jasmine in Meadow are elevated with the sparkle of Bergamot and Grapefruit in our delicious Capri.

Coral + Capri = A sizzling summer combo! The apple blossom and black currant in Coral mix with Bergamot, Orange and Grapefruit in Capri to create the perfect sun-filled day.

Coral + Isle = Coral is known for its bright top notes of Apple Blossom, Grapefruit and Black Currant. But it’s base note is what makes this scent combo so special.  Worn together, this luminescent combination of fruity and fresh will whisk you away to white sand beaches. 

Isle + Meadow = Fabulous floral meet the island queen. Invigorating white flowers of tuberose and jasmine blend with the dewy, sheer base of Isle to create a special floral blend for all ages.

As you can see, the possibilities are endless with your favorite Skylar fragrances! If you are a member of our monthly Scent Club, our signature scents can also be layered with your favorite monthly scent!

5 Reasons You Need a Rollie

We get this question all the time; what is the difference between the Skylar full size (1.7 oz) and rollerball?

Well – in a word, NOTHING.  And –EVERYTHING.

The formula inside is exactly the same, but it’s all about the application. Your 1.7 is the perfect way to clean up your beauty counter – it lives at home. Give yourself an all-over spray after the shower and before you get dressed. The pump on the full-size bottle allows for a wider range of scent to hit the skin during application.

The Skylar Rollie is perfect for re-application throughout the day. Keep a rollie in your purse, the car, wherever! We recommend applying to pulse points –roll on wrists, neck, and cleavage. Your heart is your biggest pulse point, as the heat from your body rises, it lifts the scent upwards.

Apply fragrance where you want to be kissed, so if it’s a big night, have fun – the small of your back, behind your knees, even your ankles are great pulse points!

Rollerball vs Full Size: What’s the Difference?

Candles are the perfect partner to a relaxing bubble bath, a good book, or a zen moment. At Skylar, when we asked our community what we should create next - candles were the top choice! And as part of our mission to inspire self-care and confidence in women everywhere, we couldn't think of a better partner in our Skylar gals' journey to self-care than a Skylar candle. And, knowing the unhealthy practices of the majority of the fragrance industry, we knew we had to do it.

A couple of facts...

Brands do not have to disclose the ingredients in their candles (including paraffin).

Brands do not have to disclose the ingredient list on candles, there are no regulations in place that require such disclosure. Crazy, right? What that means is there is no need to tell consumers that their candles do in fact have paraffin (and we'll get into what paraffin actually is shortly). In fact, when brands do not say explicitly “paraffin-free”, they likely do use paraffin. 

95% of candles on the market today are made with paraffin.

What most people don't realize is that paraffin is a petrochemical - a chemical obtained from petroleum, coal or shale. Paraffin wax is derived from petroleum – a non renewable resource often used for the oil and gas industry. Yes, paraffin wax is actually obtained by dewaxing light lubricating oil stocks.

Petroleum, as we all know, is a resource extracted from the Earth, and as such, there is only a finite supply of it - making it a non-renewable resource. Paraffin, therefore, is not an eco-friendly base for candles.

Additionally, several university-level studies have shown that inhaling petrochemicals and ingredients derived from petrochemicals (like paraffin) can potentially cause health issues. 

At Skylar, we think you should be able to breathe easy when you strike a match and light your candles - not worried about what you're inhaling and how it's impacting you or the earth. That's why we formulate our candles with soy and coconut wax. Renewable, sustainable resources that are natural (and safe). We're proud to be part of the only 5% of candles around that offer this better-for-you alternative, and combined with our hypoallergenic, signature scents, we know you'll be transported to your moment of zen.
