WHY 100% PURE?

WHY 100% PURE?

almondSweetassgal hoping everyone had a wonderful 4th of July holiday!  I had an incredible time camping in the Tahoe National Forest.  It was incredibly beautiful with blue skies, starry nights, and lots of tree’s and mountain lakes but most of all…MOSQUITOS!  I’m talking mosquitoes SO big you might be afraid they’d carry off small children or your precious little poochie!  I don’t get bit…never do.  I don’t really know why.  Maybe one sip of my blood and they’re getting more Bloody Mary then actual blood.  Who knows?  But this weekend even I wasn’t immune to these prehistoric sized suckers!  I made it out easy.  I’ve got a few on my legs and one on each arm but my poor hubby didn’t fare as well.  So for once in my skeeter bite free adult life I was left itching and scratching and just generally irritating the heck out of my skin.
 
Remembering two lovely little samples of 100% Pure’s Honey Pear and Juicy Pineapple Body Cream I had received with my mascara that I recently reviewed, I figured it was the perfect time to try it out.  I popped these babies in the freezer for about 10 minutes or so and let them get a nice chill on the package contents.  Then I cut open the edges and squeezed out cool Honey Pear on my left leg and chilled Juicy Pineapple on the right.  These are nice, light and fruity cream’s perfect for summer cravings.  The light scent isn’t overbearing or sickly sweet but it does make you want to whip up a huge bowl of fresh fruit and then maybe blend some up for a frosty adult beverage!  The cold and soothing cream went to work right away on the irritation of my few tiny bites and also helped combat the mile high dry skin that appeared on my shins after having spent three days at about 5,000 feet elevation.  I may start keeping ALL of my lotions in the icebox for cool summer application.
 
100% Pure has other incredibly enticing sounding lotions such as Strawberry Lemonade, Pink Grapefruit, Tahiti and Dark Chocolate Mocha just to name a few.  Many of their scented products are accompanied by a body scrub and wash and some even come in a lotion mini so you can try out a little bit before you commit to a big bottle.  And I totally get that.  In fact I think all lotions should come in a “try me”, an “I’ll use you when the mood strikes” and “I’d like to swim in you I love you so much” size.  For me lotions are like scented candles…you can never have enough and suddenly one day you realize that if you don’t start using the inventory you’ve got on hand you are going to be in great danger of being found dead beneath an avalanched pile of pillars and bottles…smelling fresh…but dead nonetheless.
 
That said I think it would be a great opportunity to touch on some of the natural and non-preservative aspects of the 100% Pure line.  The following are the most popular FAQ’s about the brand and their philosophies to show their commitment to us and to a quality product.
 
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.
 
Why Vegan?
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 ingredients must 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 cruelty 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.
