Pure is absolutely our best moisturizer for sensitive skin. Without reservation our customers have also pronounced it perfection for picky complexions. (just read the reviews!) Not too heavy and not too light, Pure feeds skin a wide range of botanical actives specifically chosen to reduce the appearance of redness and improve the appearance of tone and texture for seriously reactive faces.
This recipe has now been repackaged in a 1.7 oz (48 ml) airless plastic bottle to help it pump out completely. We heard that clients were having trouble getting this product out of our glass bottles, and we responded. While we do not love using plastic the airless bottle keeps hands out of the recipe, which is important to keeping this minimally preserved recipe in good condition. The airless bottle also will minimize air contact with the recipe, keeping vitamins and oils fresher for longer. It's a larger volume of product, so you will not have to purchase as frequently. We hope you like this packaging adjustment.
Pure is entirely unscented and free from gluten, ethyl alcohol (grain alcohol), nuts, petrochemicals, parabens, phenoxyethanol, and even common botanical allergens. Over the years we've spoken to many clients suffering from a wide range of sensitivities and we wanted to offer the best moisturizer for sensitive skin that we could based on what we have learned.
Our whole herb extracts work in synergy to nourish with a broad spectrum of unaltered, beneficial phytonutrients. By using the whole herb you get more active compounds - often dozens per plant!
Calendula benefits the skin in Pure in the form of an artisan-produced organic hydrosol. Calendula has been revered in herbalism and, you may be familiar with it as a friendly herb used for calendula creams and balms. We have used it in this organic moisturizer for its abilities to reduce the appearance of redness and create the look of calm, resilient skin. Each year our farm supplier plants their fields and distills this valuable herb with care so you get the most calendula benefits possible. The hydrosol is their main product, not just a cast off from essential oil distillation. That makes it better quality.
Marshmallow provides mucilage to deeply hydrate the surface of skin. Plantain leaf, one of our absolutely favorite botanicals for reactive skin, penetrates to give a comforting sensation. It's a humble, wild leaf with seriously sophisticated benefits. Self Heal is also a persistent perennial friend from the plant kingdom. Commonly used in herbalism for cuts, scrapes, and abrasions it is ideal for skin that is constantly challenged and aggravated by its environment. Heather Flowers provide the flavonoid Quercetin, and Butcher's Broom provides a host of minerals and another antioxidant flavonoid, Rutin.
This formula doesn't stop there though, as its elegant botanical base oils moisturize deeply with no greasy feeling. Fully hydrated skin is more resilient, so that's our goal. Our botanical oils have been specially chosen for their mild scent, smooth feel, antioxidants, and vitamin content. Organic Baobab and Pumpkin seed oils star, providing Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and vitamins A, C, D, E and Zinc as well as plant sterols. Organic Camellia oil is a rich source of antioxidants, and Perilla seed oil and Tamanu are superb for needy skin. All of these help reduce the appearance of inflammation and irritation and give you the look of supple, softened radiance.
Clients describe Pure as life changing. When other products designed for "sensitive skin" have let them down or still produce stinging, redness, and irritation our recipe often comes to the rescue. Extreme sensitivity can be super frustrating, and we continue to be elated for each client that finally finds their perfect match and best moisturizer for sensitive skin in Pure. There are no mystery ingredients, just nourishing plants that we know like good friends.
