Our Philosophy

Skincando products are handcrafted from the finest organic, natural and locally-sourced ingredients. We use glass packaging because it is better for you, the environment and the products.

We are an earth-friendly company. We use non-toxic cleaning agents in our production process, we recycle and use recycled and biodegradable materials. We believe that it is just as important to protect the environment as it is to protect ourselves.

Our organic skin care products are concentrated and last at least two times longer than commercial products. Once the products are opened they have a shelf life of one year, however, we recommend replacing them every six months.


Our Story

More than 15 years ago, organic esthetician Sara Damelio set out to fix her own problem skin. After extensive research and formulation, she found the answer: her own line of line of Combat-Ready chic first aid products. The famed Combat-Ready products are made from the purest ingredients and are handcrafted with care from start to finish in Sara’s workshop, affectionately called HQ.

Not long after Skincando was created, Sara received a request from a US soldier serving in Iraq for more of the “magic balm” that soothed his itchy, irritated skin. Sara complied, and created Operation Sand Flea, a not-for-profit arm under Skincando that donates a portion of the Combat-Ready products to members of the U.S. Military.

In 2016, Sara opened the 1st Skincando organic beauty studio + boutique in Silver Spring, MD. Fast forward to 2018 and Sara and the Skincando team are on track to open The Garden Spa and launch a full luxury line of magical organic skincare products!
