Our Philosophy

Skincando products are handcrafted from the finest quality 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 the creams every six months because of exposure.


Our Story

More than 15 years ago, Skincando founder and esthetician Sara Damelio set out to fix her problem skin. After extensive research and formulation, she found the answer: her own line of 100 percent organic skincare products. The famed Skincando products are made from the purest, cleanest 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 partnered with The Emerald Door green beauty spa and opened the 1st Skincando organic facial room + beauty boutique in Silver Spring, MD. Since the partnership, The Emerald Door has become a popular destination for clean beauty treatments in the Washington, DC-area.
