Why 100% pure?
“As much as 60% of topical skin-care products are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream,” Says Dr. Nancy Lonsdrof, M.D. an lowa-based physician, “They should be consumed with the same prudence that we use to choose our breakfast cereal.” – April 2006 issue of Women's Health Magazine. There are many toxic chemicals in cosmetic products that have been clinically proven to cause cancer, tumors, irritation and many different skin disorders. 100% products are truly 100% Pure-no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.
We love animals and refuse to support anything that hurts animals which is why none of our formulas are ever tested on animals (everything we use is food grade and does not require testing, whereas chemical ingredientsmust be tested). All our makeup brushes are from synthetic fibers. No animals were hurt for their fur and no animals were hurt for any of our ingredients (the only animal ingredient we use is crulety free honey).
Why not perfumes or fragrances?
Perfumes and fragrances are synthetic chemicals that do not have any medicinal or aroma therapeutic value. 100% Pure products smell delicious because what you smell is real. The wonderful aromas in 100% Pure products are from real fruits, pure essential oils, and pure absolutes. There are never any synthetic fragrances or anything artificial in 100% Pure products.
Why not thickeners and emulsifiers?
Because those are just cheap fillers. 100% Pure products are never diluted with water, alcohol, thickeners, emulsifiers or any other “fillers”. Instead, 100% Pure products are totally concentrated, which means they are most effective.
Why are antioxidants so important?
Every moment, we are slowly deteriorating. Free radicals such as the sun, smog, smoke, cigarettes, etc. attack us, causing aging, wrinkles, and cancer. ONLY Antioxidants protect us, fighting off the damaging free radicals. Sun block is important because it blocks up to 80% of UV rays, but sun blocks DO NOT protect against other free radicals. Your skin needs antioxidants for sun protection and protection against all damaging free radicals.
Since there are no preservatives, how long do your products last once I open them?
On each product, there is an open jar symbol with a number on it. That number indicates how long you can use the product once it is opened. The #1 reason why our products do not require harsh chemical preservatives is because you need two things for bacterial growth: water and air. Since we never use water in the first place, this eliminates the use of harsh chemical preservatives.
100% Pure generously provided me the 100% PURE 8-PC FRUIT PIGMENTED COLOR COLLECTION.
An eight-piece collection of gorgeous, 100% natural, fruit-pigmented color cosmetics that will look beautiful on everyone. These luxurious, high-quality formulas are colored from antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetable pigments--as opposed to minerals or FD&C colors. They are natural and free of synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, and other toxins.
I love it! I love the fact that it's natural. The eyeshadow and and eyeliner go on smoothly and stay on. While I had low expectations for the mascara because I'm very picky, it actually worked very well! I love 100% Pure!
100% Pure also provided me with the NEOPOLITAN BODY SCRUB GIFT SET. It comes in Strawberry Lemonade Juicy Body Scrub, Organic Vanilla Bean Butter Scrub and Organic Chocolate Mocha Body Scrub. The scrub worked wonderfully and smelled delicious enough to eat! Yummy!
