Proudly made in Los Angeles, California.
We've scoured the earth, and our backyard, for the most nutrient-dense, beneficial ingredients to make our Knitbone Repair Serum. Our supply partners are held to rigorous standards for both quality and sustainability, and are regulated by The Leaping Bunny Foundation to ensure that no animal testing is conducted at any point of production. This process ensures that from start to finish, our ingredients are grown and handled with integrity and respect for Mother Earth and all of her creations. We NEVER use endangered or habitat-destroying ingredients, such as frankincense, palm, argan oil, or baobab oil, to make our product.
Saint Alabaster was established in 2015, and launched its first line of skincare products in 2017 as a zero waste operation. We were certified cruelty-free by The Leaping Bunny Foundation in 2018. Our legacy continues with the cult-favorite, Knitbone Repair Serum, which is currently featured in Vogue magazine Spring 2019.
We guarantee that our product is made using good manufacturing practices. This means that our product is made safely and responsibly, we do not test on animals, and we do not use exploited or endangered ingredients to make our product. Our product is 100% biodegradable and will not harm aqueous life once rinsed down the sink.
