SST Training in Saskatoon

sst cosmetics

We were very excited to get to Saskatoon this week for training with SST Cosmetics! The day was fun and knowledge filled for everyone, we absolutely love the line and what the company stands for. SST is a Canadian, mineral based cosmetics company located in Saskatoon, SK. They use the highest quality minerals from around the world to ensure the best in their products. SST is also a Paraben Free, Talc Free, Boron Nitride Free, Gluten Free and Cruelty Free company which means a lot to many people today


While at training we learned a few new fun facts about parabens that even we weren’t aware of. Parabens are a chemically made preservatives that are found in many day to day products, especially cosmetic products. While originally it was said that these preservatives were safe to use, some research shows that might not be the case anymore. Not only has research shown that parabens may be linked to cancer, but it was also brought to our attention that the chemical structure of parabens is nearly identical to those of estrogen cells. So close in fact that our bodies can’t tell the difference between the two, leading women’s bodies to believe they have higher levels of estrogen than they actually do. Crazy right?

SST has some great new products, all of which of course, are 100% paraben free. One of our favorites is the Age Eraser Hydrating Foundation. This offers full coverage and is infused with Peony flower root to make sure you stay hydrated all day! The hyaluronic acid binds with water causing a slight swelling in the skin. This swelling diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Not only that, but the foundation has been scientifically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles by 33.8% after only 4 weeks of use! Stop in the spa and come try it out for yourself. One of the girls would be more than happy to help! 

Shop Locally First


It’s Christmas time! It’s Shopping Time! Where should we go? The city…… Saskatoon, Battleford, Lloydminster, Edmonton, Calgary or maybe even Winnipeg? What about Unity? Are the prices in the city better? Not always! The cost of travel and meals, winter driving….. Don’t forget about the inevitable return of gifts either inappropriate, wrong size, broken or missing pieces……  I’ll let you to do the math!   

Have you taken the time to browse through each store in Unity? I have been through most stores in town shopping as well as collecting knowledge to pass onto my spa guests about the unique shopping available in Unity. There are treasures here that will amaze you.

Recently I had women shopping in the spa say, “We don’t have to go shopping in the city….. Among the stores in Unity you have everything the city has.” This lady had gone to the city for socks and was shocked to see the great variety we carry.           Another commented, “I just spent the last 2 1/2 hours shopping in your town…. Now I’m broke!”

Friends, neighbors and people from Unity and surrounding area – the clock is ticking.

Shop local…. Found Treasures, Our Drug Store, Wildeman Sport Store (Tan Jay +) The Resource Center, Bargain Shop, Fields, Guys Furniture, Cinema Satellite, Crystal Clarity, The Co-op, AG Foods, Junction 21 (Western Wear +), Ilene’s Quilting, Country Pantry, Flowers by Joan, Unity Travel Shop, 2nd Avenue Cinema, Home Based Businesses, Hair Dressers, Liquor Stores, Spa City and Sunrise Wellness Spa or buy someone a membership to the Gym, CrossFit, Pilates or Yoga. Don’t forget the dealerships that you rely on throughout the year. No business is an island to itself……            Gift Certificates are available from many local stores and restaurants. We have all worked hard to bring you the best for a local shopping experience. Shopping in Unity is not as hurried as the city and the distance from store to store is minimal. Many businesses partake in Winter Wonderland on December 3 from 6-9 pm to provide you shopping that fits into your busy life.

Be sure to enter your name at participating stores for the “GRAND IN YOUR HAND”.

Shopping locally can put the cash back in your hand.


SHOP LOCALLY FIRST AND LAST and we will make it a wonderful experience!

SST Mineral Makeup

SST Cosmetics is based in Saskatoon and quickly taking over the Canadian beauty market with their high quality mineral based products that enhances ones natural beauty without harmful ingredients. Sharon Sharpe-Titus, Founder of SST Cosmetics puts the health of the makeup artist, stylist and consumer first, all while performing at the highest standards. Each product comes in a sexy, yet sophisticated, high fashion black packaging with a richly pigmented formula.

SST formulations use the highest quality minerals from around the world. These minerals are finely milled before ingredients are added to the minerals. These ingredients are what take the minerals from a loose powder form to a pressed, liquid, gel or cream form.

PARABEN FREE – Parabens are used as preservatives in many cosmetics and personal care products. Parabens have been found to weakly mimic estrogen in animal studies due to the fact that parabens easily penetrate the skin. This raises health concerns because of the link between estrogen and breast cancer. SST has made a choice to use paraben free formulations. High levels of antioxidants help to preserve our product in the same manner that parabens would.

FREE RADICALS – Free Radicals are naturally occurring particles in the body associated with accelerated aging and an increased risk of major diseases. Exposure to pollution, smoking and excess sunlight increases the number of free radicals in the blood. Potent antioxidants found in many of the ingredients in the SST formulations add to the belief that antioxidants not only promote good health but also make you look younger.

SST Tinted Primer & Moisture Kick is a 3 in 1 BB cream formulated with a unique blend of vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, nourishing red seaweed extract and tourmaline. It helps to even out skin’s texture and tone, minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, while keeping skin moisturized and reducing redness. It can be worn alone or underneath your favourite foundation or powder. It is lightweight and has almost a silky consistency that glides over the skin with ease and offers medium coverage. It blends beautifully whether using a foundation brush or fingers.

SST CC Cream offers a breakthrough with colour correcting foundation and concealer in one. It offers medium to full coverage in a mousse like texture that glides over the skin like silk. Continued use helps to diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone and pigmentation due to the powerful extracts of tomato and cabbage. They are suitable for all skin types and now available in 4 self-adjusting shades.

SST Skin Perfecting Balm is a weightless colorless primer which helps smooth away fine lines and minimize pores all while healing skin imperfections. Blends of Vitamin C & A, Tea Tree and Chamomile for antiseptic heal and soothe the skin. The perfecting balm cuts shine and controls oil.

SST Hydrating Lipstick is the perfect lipstick for dry Canadian winters. This lipstick is incredibly hydrating but still provides excellent color. It never feels tight or dry and it doesn’t cling to drier areas on the lips. It provides about 3 to 4 hours of wear time.
