Comprehensive Sloane Marley Product Use Guide

On almost a daily basis, I get questions about how to best use Sloane Marley products.  The beautiful reality is that by experimenting with use, frequency and your skin type, you will land on the right use and there is no "right" way to use them.  However, for anyone who wants a soft landing place to start, here is my personal system.  You'll find information by product, by use, and by skin type.  If you have additional questions, please send us a message.  

Recommended Products to Try:  We believe you'll be most successful trying the SKÖN Glowing Skin Mini Collection where you can test everything and try out different combinations and frequency for your individual needs. 

PRODUCTS IN SEQUENCE BY SKIN TYPE: 

Oily Skin - Use REN, TONA, and VÄN.  The LÖSNING Collection was made for you.  Use VÄN to matify skin and for oil-free moisture with or without makeup. Wash well with REN, tonify with TONA and use VÄN.  

Combination and Acne-Prone Skin  - Use REN, TONA, and VÄN.  The LÖSNING Collection was made for you.  You'll probably need extra KLAR as it's about to become your new best friend.  KLAR is ideal in place of or under make up and leave it on - no need to rinse.  Use in heavy doses as acne starts to bloom and you'll reduce it's timeline by at least half.

Mature Skin -  Use REN Daily Wash or if really dry, try our new HELA Sensitive Skin Wash when it comes out in early 2020.  Follow with TONA, and try FUKTA and VÄN for moisture.  If your skin is very dry, use more FUKTA.  If your skin is medium or oily or hormonal acne-prone, use VÄN for moisture and KLAR to clarify daily or as needed for hormonal breakouts. FUKTA is also really useful around eyes.  The TJEJ Collection and the SKÖN Glowing Skin Collection were made for you.

Sensitive Skin -  Use a little of the LILLA DU Gentle Wash Concentrate, which has no essential oils.  Or for VERY SENSITIVE skin, particularly with severe eczema, rosacea or other inflammatory conditions, use FUKTA as an oil wash. Follow with your choice of VÄN or a 50/50 of VÄN and FUKTA for gentle anti-inflammatory moisture.  Use KLAR to calm and condition 1x every 1-2 weeks.   For VERY SENSITIVE use FUKTA exclusively and LAGA on very dry patches.  

INDIVIDUAL PRODUCTS and USE: 

REN ::  Daily face wash for most skin types made with roses and honey.  For dry or mature skin, use LILLA DU Gentle Wash Concentrate or FUKTA as an oil was for VERY VERY sensitive skin.

Use:  We recommend using 2x per day, morning and night.  This rose and honey based wash will effectively clear all debris and even the toughest makeup and leave a clean canvas.  It's even more effective when you follow with TONA on a cotton ball to remove the last traces of make up or environmental pollution and we recommend following with a moisturizer.  For mature skin, FUKTA is the perfect follow up, for medium skin, we recommend 50/50 blend of FUKTA and VÄN and for oily or combination skin, we recommend VÄN only to follow your wash and toning process.  If you are experiencing a breakout, try following with KLAR or for general oil-free barrier for your skin try a 50/50 combination of KLAR and VÄN.  

Alternative Uses: In a pinch, REN makes a great beard wash or body wash when on the road.  

TONA :: Multi-purpose conditioning toner for all skin types.  TONA's big genius is when it's used on cotton balls or a cotton pad to remove stubborn makeup or environmental toxins.  It also helps to remove mineral sunscreens and wind burn emollients to prevent breakouts.  

Use:  We recommend using at least 1x per day, or morning and night.  This toner with hops, kombucha and apple cider vinegar takes all traces of what shouldn't be on your skin and replaces it with gentle oil-free moisture.  It's even more effective when you begin with REN to wash your face and we recommend following with a moisturizer.  For mature skin, FUKTA is the perfect follow up, for medium skin, we recommend 50/50 blend of FUKTA and VÄN and for oily or combination skin, we recommend VÄN only to follow your wash and toning process.  If you are experiencing a breakout, try following with KLAR or for general oil-free barrier for your skin try a 50/50 combination of KLAR and VÄN.  

Alternative Uses: In a pinch, TONA is perfect to cool down after a workout or to spray in underarms on a hot day.  Also useful for a face spritz after a long flight or car trip.  Can be spritzed on top of make up or on bare skin.

FUKTA :: Balancing blue face oil.  Aromatherapeutic and anti-inflammatory.  Treat your face daily or less frequently depending on your skin type.  

Use:  Perfect for daily use for dry or mature skin types and 1x per 2 weeks or so for more combination skin types.  Not good for daily use on oily skin.  Use a few drops to a full dropper depending on your skin type.  We recommend beginning with REN wash, and TONA to condition the skin and following up with FUKTA for moisture.  For mature skin, a dropper full of FUKTA is the perfect follow up by itself, for medium skin, we recommend 50/50 blend of FUKTA and VÄN.  

Alternative Uses: Condition dry cuticles after a home mani or pedi, use around eyes (all skin types) or add a few drops to a moisturizer for a deep conditioning treatment.  Rub a few drops together in hands and give babies and kids a gentle back, foot or hand massage to help them sleep.  


KLAR ::  A clarifying liquid clay that dries to a transparent powder finish.  Great in place of foundation for clear skin and ideal to help reduce time on breakouts.  Aromatherapeutic night time ritual for improved sleep.  

Use:  Excellent for all skin types. We recommend putting all over face overnight for healthier balanced skin and better sleep, or wearing in place of or under makeup during the day.  For acne and hormonal breakouts, put a few layers of KLAR on the spots as often as you'd like during the day and as soon as you notice inflammation beginning.  Typically reduces inflammation of the spot without drying out the surrounding area.  Mix 50/50 with VÄN for an oil-free moisturizer for acne-prone skin. 

Alternative Uses:  Effective for supporting clearing acne, and also great for first aid - to put on bites, stings, and rashes.  Some of our clients have used it to help treat conditions as severe as eczema and shingles.  

VÄN ::  A wildcrafted botanical serum in made with fresh Viognier and citrus peel extracts.  Made to soften and condition all skin types and reduce fine lines and wrinkles with an oil-free formula.  Completely proprietary and unique - the closest thing to this on the market is oil-based (not good for many skin types) and costs more than 4x as much. 

Use:  Works for any skin type of any age.  Particularly effective for mature skin to soften wrinkles and fine lines.  Can be layered with other moisturizers or works well alone in hot or humid weather or for oily and combination skin types.  Mix 50/50 with KLAR for an oil-free moisturizer for acne-prone skin. 

Alternative Uses:  As a midday refresher, add half a dropper to hands, rub together and smooth over face.    

LAGA :: All purpose salve and balm.  Formulated to be better than any other salve or balm you've used for your hands and feet.  Perfect for anyone who works on a computer because it soaks in quickly.  The moisturizing effects last after handwashing thanks to cocoa butter, shea butter and beeswax, and the essential oils help protect you during cold and flu season.  

Use:  Great for hands during cold and dry weather and for dry feet and heels any time of year.  Makes a perfect lip balm.  Useful for winter sports fans on the face and hands for extra protection and to prevent windburn.  Excellent for anyone who works outdoors or works in food, education, or healthcare to save the hands from wear and tear and frequent hand-washing.  A life saver for new parents and anyone caring for small children.  Safe to use on all ages, 6+ months and up.  

Alternative Uses:  Carry one container for lip balm, hands, feet, as a natural lubricant, and to prevent wind burn, chafe, and diaper rash.   Comforting for stretched tight pregnant bellies and skin recovering from major weight loss.  Protectant for minor wounds, scrapes, and post-surgical incisions after patients have been cleared to wash the area.

PARLA ::  All purpose salve and balm with a little bit of natural shimmer and a real gemstone as a special treat.  Secret revealed - this is the same recipe as LAGA with added mica for shimmer and essential oils swapped.  Perfect light shimmy lip balm and always a fun gift! 

Use:  Great for hands during cold and dry weather and for dry feet and heels any time of year.  Makes a perfect lip balm.  Useful for winter sports fans on the face and hands for extra protection and to prevent windburn.  Excellent for anyone who works outdoors or works in food, education, or healthcare to save the hands from wear and tear and frequent hand-washing.  A life saver for new parents and anyone caring for small children.  Safe to use on all ages, 6+ months and up.  

Alternative Uses: Lip balm, foot balm, hand salve, and as a special gift to cheer up a friend.  

LILLA DU ::  Gentle wash concentrate for brand new babies and post-partum mamas.  Made by request to fulfill a few needs for our customers - deeply moisturizing, essential oil free for the most sensitive skin, and completely vegan.  Made with 100% pure maple syrup for anti-bacterial effects and moisturizing effects without drying.  

Use:  Use starting in pregnancy to wash your face gently or as a first wash for baby when he/she comes home.  Calendula and chamomile infused grapeseed oil and gentlest olive oil castile mixed with soft maple syrup make this a formula that will gently build up a positive protective layer on new baby skin.  Add to a peri bottle for super gentle post-partum treatment of tender tissues or add to cloth wipes for skin conditioning and better clean up.

Alternative Uses:  Also great for very sensitive faces and for aging skin.  Another option for this is our new HELA Sensitive Skin Face Wash coming in early 2020.

ÄLSKA ::  Nipple balm like you've never seen before. Super soft, super potent protection for cracked and tender nipples / nursing mamas.  Made from a base of calendula and chamomile infused oil and backed with shea butter, cocoa butter, and beeswax for long-lasting protection and soothing.  Zero essential oils, 100% plant-based oils and pure beeswax to be safe for the tiniest of humans. Petrolatum free, synthetic ingredient free, and animal product free.

Use:  Starting from day one, use after and between feedings, frequently and liberally for best use.  When you can make time to let it soak in before baby feeds, you will receive more support from the chafe that comes with saliva.  Useful to treat your dry cuticles and hands as well as baby's cradle cap and dry hands and feet while you nurse.  

Alternative Uses:  Creates a protective boundary for partum or post-partum hemorrhoids and as a barrier over torn perineal tissue.  Helps relieve tightly stretched pregnant belly skin and post-partum mama bellies.

I hope this guide has helped you!
