100% Pure Skincare Product Review

It’s sound logic that, if you’re trying to live an organic, healthy life-style, you shouldn’t put on your body what you wouldn’t put in your body, right? After all, the skin is the body’s largest organ, both absorbing and secreting nutrients and toxins alike. Especially for those with sensitive skin, chronic illness or those who wish to protect the environment, natural skincare products are the way to go.
So why choose a natural skincare line over a traditional one?
The body was created to regenerate and condition itself, expelling toxins and naturally moisturizing and conditioning for optimum ‘performance’. But modern environmental factors and lifestyles stress our inherent design, and so of course developed products are helpful in retaining a healthy, youthful body.
But many traditional skincare lines use ingredients that may sound natural and healthy but in truth can be rather harmful to the body, causing painful symptoms such as headaches, arthritic feelings and cold-like symptoms, and contribute to increases in cancer. For example, “mineral oil”, which sounds natural and healthy enough and is in many beauty products, is derived from crude oil and restricts the skin’s release of carbon dioxide and the toxins secreted sweat by placing a film over the skin. It actually dries out skin by putting so much suffocating oil on the surface that the body’s natural moisturizers are not needed, resulting over time in an inability to produce its own. Crude oil is so toxic that it’s on the US Government’s OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) list for carcinogens. Similar effects are found with any petroleum-based compound, glycerin, collagen and elastin – compounds that are too large to be absorbed by the skin’s epidermis and instead sit on the surface and trap toxins and moisture in.
So what is the solution?
You could look at every ingredient in your beauty products and compare them to OSHA’s list of carcinogens, or scour the internet and find out which ingredients cause harmful reactions on the skin and in the body. Or you could use a line of products whose ingredients you could trust entirely.
100% Pure Skincare, makeup and body products is a progressive model for this type of line. Take a look at the ingredients in their Honey Almond Milk Shower Gel:
Organic White Tea1, Organic Jasmine1, Organic Calendula1, Organic Rose Petals1, Organic Honey2, Organic Almond Milk2, Organic Almond Extract3, Organic Sweet Almond Oil3, Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Extracts of Organic Lavender2, Organic Thyme2, Organic Goldenseal4 and Organic Oregano2, Coco Betaine (coconut cleanser), Japanese Honeysuckle, Witch Hazel, Citric Acid. 1 certified organic by Oregon Tilth Certified Organi, 2 certified organic by QAI, 3 certified organic by Organic Certifiers, 4 certified organic by Maryland Department of Agriculture
Nothing’s in there you couldn’t eat… literally. As with many traditional skincare lines, 100% Pure products make the body look and feel amazing, but does so by assisting the body’s natural creation and secretion, not by fighting against it. The products are highly accessible at pharmacies and beauty stores nationwide, and are an affordable investment – especially compared to many products that boast being natural only to include fillers and expensive and unnecessary additions. And because the ingredients are so natural, they’re biodegradable and won’t threaten the water they’re rinsed into.
To make this product line even better, they’re completely vegan, do not test on animals, print their labels with non-toxic soy ink, and use packaging materials that are made from recycled materials and recyclable themselves. And they look, smell and feel amazingly indulgent… the way your body wants them to be!
Here’s a comment from a happy believer:
I love your cosmetics! Thank you so much for making something that does not have chemicals in it. I have been through breast cancer and do not want anything with chemicals on my skin (which is now my immune system)! I am so thankful for you! – Susan Waller
