ABOUT US

BEAUTY INSPIRES HOPE

Our very existence including our skin and our appearance are the results of proteins generated from genes within our cells.  This natural process is where the beauty of life itself arises and that is why our mottos at ReenaLife and São cosmetics  are "Beauty Is All Natural" and "Beauty Inspires Hope".

Life has arisen, adapted, and existed without synthetic chemicals for millions of years and there would be no hope without life. The impact of synthetic chemicals synthesized during the last 50 to 100 years on life itself is largely unknown. It is for this reason that we at ReenaLife and São Cosmetics are devoted to natural plant products and remind our customers that they have a choice and that real "Beauty Is All natural", and real "Beauty Inspires Hope".

ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS & CRUELTY FREE

Before the industrial revolution, people used natural plant oils and products for beauty. Today in our mass market and commercialized society, cosmetic products are largely composed of a complex mixture of chemical ingredients. These synthetic chemicals have traditionally been viewed as innovations. Many of these chemicals became available from the discovery of oil, tar, and gasoline and are refined or developed from these petroleum products. The very same petroleum products that are being burned by automobiles. But our skin is the largest organ system in our body, and our skin is commonly used to absorb pharmacologic drugs in form of drug patches. As a consequence, synthetic chemicals that your body would never have been exposed to in a natural environment are now being applied and absorbed through the skin with unknown long term consequences to our health, mind, body, and spirit.

ReenaLife and São Cosmetics are devoted to making bath, body, and cosmetic products from natural plants and oils.

THE FIVE GUIDING PRINCIPLES USED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EVERY PRODUCT ARE:

  1. We select raw materials from renewable natural resources that are abundantly available.
  2. We minimize the amount of energy to extract, process, or make ingredients.
  3. We avoid substances that are toxic to you or the environment.
  4. We choose products that nature will normally biodegrade.
  5. We keep production simple and low tech.

Sao-About_Stem-Cell-Researchers

WHO WE ARE

ReenaLife and São were founded by a group of stem cell researchers, chemists, biomedical engineers and physicians devoted to using stem cells to help people.

São has two meanings. São means Saint. São is also the pleural conjugation of the verb to be or to exist. i.e. "are". We exist because we are a collection of natural cells that have developed over millions of years in a natural environment. In São products we endeavor to provide natural beauty and skin care in all our current product lines.

Sao-About_Profits-go-to-Stem-Cell-Researchers

PROFITS GO TO STEM CELL RESEARCH

In the future, we at São aspire to bring you skin care products containing stem cells to nourish your skin. Stem cells are the cells that give rise to all cells in your body including your skin cells.

All profits from São will go to develop stem cell lines to not only help for beautiful skin but also to help cure people of disease and suffering.
