Q: Where are your products made?
A: All of our products are made in the USA.

Q: What is your background as to how and why you came up with a skincare line?
A: I have a medical spa on Madison Avenue in NYC. When my clients complained about their skin and body products, I listened and heard the same questions over and over….  “I have so many products in my bathroom and I have no idea what I need to be using”. Because I have been a licensed aesthetician for 10 years and my husband’s expertise as an Ivy League physician, we developed a product line that worked and did not include harmful chemicals that we would never use on our children! Since, your skin is the largest organ in your body, it is crucial that you know what you are applying to it everyday.

Q: What if I have eczema or sensitive skin? Which products do you recommend?
A: Our clients have found that using a combination of our exfoliating sugar scrub followed by applying our body candles to be incredibly helpful. The gentle exfoliation process of the sugar and the healing properties of our essential oils are safe to use on your children too!

Q: What is the difference between your Sugar Face line and Dr. Bobby?
A: Our Sugar Face line was designed for all skin types. We have taken the complexities of choosing products out of the equation. Our Dr. Bobby’s line is targeted for clients who either have aging skin or problematic/acne skin. The Dr. Bobby’s cleanser has acai berry, which is a natural exfoliator and also kills any bacteria. The Dr. Bobby’s moisturizer has a pure hyaluronic acid base, which is the ingredient in dermal fillers. We have found a way to make this particle small enough to be absorbed into the deeper layers of your skin. This moisturizer balances oil production. 

Q: If I have fine lines, which product do you recommend?
A: Our Drench Me moisturizer is amazing for fine lines! With our proprietary combination of hyaluronic acid and a multitude of peptides, you will find that the appearance of fine lines start fading with continued use.

Q: Is it safe to put the wax from your soy body candles on my skin?
A: YES! Our body candles are made with ONLY pure soy, essential oils and vitamins.  The candles burn at a very low temperature, which is safe to apply directly to your skin. ALWAYS extinguish the flame first and then apply the soy with a brush or your fingers. The melted oils will absorb quickly into your skin. There is not a leftover “waxy” residue.  

Q: Do your products contain parabens or sulfates?
A: NO! Our products use only safe and natural preservatives.

Q: Do you have an auto-ship program for your skincare line?
A: We currently are in the process of creating an auto ship program for our Sugar Face and Dr. Bobby SkinShine line. If you would like to be notified when this will take effect, please email us at sarah@sarahswansonskincare.com and we’ll be happy to notify you!

Q: Do you do any animal testing?
A: No. We do not do animal testing. Dr. Bobby Brown is our tester!
