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 Fruit Pigmented Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20
Tinted with natural fruit and vegetable pigments to give your complexion a flawless appearance while feeding your skin with nourishing white tea, acai oil, pomegranate oil and vitamins. SPF 20 protects your skin against the sun’s harmful UVA (ultra violet aging) and UVB (ultra violet burning) rays while antioxidants protect your skin from other environmental hazards such as pollution, smog, smoke, exhaust, etc.
I love it! I love the fact that it's natural especially since I’m smearing it all over my face. Because its a moisturizer, it provides that nice even thin coverage that every woman searches for. PLUS it contains SPF so you don’t need to load your face with lots of different products.
100% Pure also provided me with Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream.
And now for the GIVEAWAY!! 100% Pure has offered to provide one winner with a .25 oz tube of Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream!!
Anti-inflammatory, caffeine rich green tea and coffee de-puffs and reduces swelling while increasing circulation to alleviate and brighten dark circles. Concentrated with potent anti-aging vitamins, antioxidants, and nourishing rosehip oil. Truly, 100% Pure.
I was really really skeptical about this eye cream. I’ve never really used an eye cream before because I always thought I was too young but boy was I wrong! I have a few undereye wrinkles from tugging my eye to apply eyeliner. Yes I know, it’s bad. Stop yelling at me now. And I also have undereye circles from lack of sleep. The Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream has helped both of these items to fade away! I do still have very faint wrinkles and very light undereye circles but they are barely noticeable. The only complaint I would have about this products is the scent. It’s very very sweet and vanilla-y which usually isn’t a problem for me unlesssss I’m trying to sleep. I can’t stand sweet smells when I’m sleeping! My boyfriend on the other hand, absolutely loves the smell and always asks me if I put that cake stuff on again! So chances are, you’ll love the smell too and I’m the only crazy one here!
And now for the GIVEAWAY! One of you will win a .25 fl oz tube of Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream!
