Like true southern ladies, Stephanie Duttenhaver and Cindy Edwards always believed that if you take good care of your skin, you can maintain a youthful and healthy glow. For Stephanie and Cindy, this was a tradition that was passed down from generation to generation–grandmother to mother, and mother to daughter and served as the foundation of their own skin care line — Sapelo Skin Care.
As Savannah residents, their love of water and nature largely impacted their perspective and approach to their business. They always observed the patterns of the tides, and saw the way that they bring nourishment to the coast line. In contrast to the chemical peels and increasingly popular dermabrasion, they opt for a more gentle approach, much like the ebb and flow of the tides. In fact, they even followed nature’s lead of different tides, with a twice daily ritual. Their entire line focuses on nourishment and hydration, for optimal healthy skin.
They formulated their small batches with the help of physicians and a Savannah-based cosmetic scientist, in order to bring in marine and botanical ingredients. They incorporate local, natural ingredients–gardenia stem cells, magnolia oil, oyster shell calcium, seaweed, and even Georgia honey–that stimulate a youthful, dewy complexion. The line was first launched in 2015, as a nod to Sapelo Island, which is a well-preserved, wild barrier island on the Georgia coast.
Sapelo Skin Care has been featured in Southern Living Magazine this October and even Draper James, have highlighted their incredible line of serums, creams and oils. Today, the Spa at Sea Island proudly carries their products. Their newest line of products include the Milk & Honey Body Lotion and Hydrating Mask, which were specifically made with Sea Island clients in mind. If you haven’t had tried their products before, you should take the opportunity to do so–your skin will thank you!
