Have you heard of the Canadian beauty brand Sahajan?
Sahajan is an evidence based natural skin care brand based on the 5,000 year old science of Ayurveda. Derived from the Hindi word for “intuitive” – Sahajan brings you the evidence to follow your intuition and choose clean beauty.
Ayurveda, translated from Sanskrit, means the Science of Life. It’s a mind-body science that reminds us that we need to be in balance. Modern day stressors, the environment, and our diet get us out of balance. Ayurveda seeks to understand each person’s unique needs and turns to plant-based remedies, yoga, meditation and other practices to achieve that balance.
The founder, Lisa Mattam, is a former pharmaceutical executive, who after discovering her daughter covered in her commercial skin care products one day and worrying about the chemicals that were in those products, decided to turn to her family’s roots to develop her own Ayurvedic skin care brand. It was important to Lisa to build a brand that was about both Ayurveda and clean beauty. The all Canadian team worked with leading Ayurvedic doctors in Kerala, India to develop the products, but that wasn’t enough, Lisa wanted to prove their efficacy. All of Sahajan’s products have been through extensive regulatory reviews, clinical trials and consumer testing and are all made in Canada. Sahajan does not make any claims that aren’t backed up by science.

Did you catch Simon and Steve’s Instagram Live with Sahajan’s founder Lisa Mattam?
The pair talked to Lisa about her morning routine as a busy mother of two, wife and business owner. Like most of us, Lisa’s only has a few minutes to herself before she gets the kids ready for school. Although her routine had been thrown off-course with the ups and downs of Covid, it’s now back on track!
She starts her morning off with yoga and a deeply nourishing skincare routine. Watch as Simon and Steeve follow her in her self-care ritual.
Lisa also talks about how she incorporates Ayurvedic practices into her daily life, and how good digestion and a healthy mind lead to glowing skin. For Lisa, it’s all about achieving a balance, and we couldn’t agree more!
Lisa starts her morning routine by applying the Essential Cleansing Oil on dry skin. This natural oil cleanser will melt away even the toughest waterproof makeup; as well as dirt, oil, and residual pollutants which accumulate on your skin during the day. This cleanser will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth, without drying your skin.
Next, Lisa applies the Balance Toner to her face with a cotton pad. This toner will help restore balance to your skin with the Ayurvedic blend of Moringa Oil, Rose Water, and Fruit Acids; gently exfoliating your skin with protective antioxidants that enhance luminosity and soothe skin after cleansing.
Lisa then follows up with her Radiance Face Serum. She likes to massage it into her skin using Ayurvedic massage techniques. This heavenly scented serum based in the 5000-year-old practice of Ayurveda is a delicious defense that provides a concentrated burst of powerful protection as it brightens and rejuvenates your skin.
Don’t forget the eyes! Lisa dabs a pea-sized amount of the Radiance Eye Cream around her eyes and on her eyelids. A little is all you need of this rich, clinically proven cream for glowing ageless skin. The formula is based on the 5000-year-old practice of Ayurveda and uses natural, plant-based oils to nourish, hydrate and brighten the face and neck.
Last but not least, Lisa’s desert-island product: the Nourish Face Cream. A little is all you need of this rich, clinically proven cream for glowing ageless skin. The formula is based on the 5000-year-old practice of Ayurveda and uses natural, plant-based oils to nourish, hydrate and brighten the face and neck.
As discussed in the IGLive, Lisa will usually use the Beauty Oil at night, but she’ll sometimes mix it with the Radiance Serum in her morning skincare routine, depending on her skin’s needs. Modern science shows us that oils are lipophilic, penetrating deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, being the ultimate free radical protector and keeping toxins out. This rich blend of Moringa, Hemp Seed and Frankincense Oils are brimming with over 90 nutrients and vitamins A, B, C &D to leave the skin quenched and glowing.
