The PÜRE Collection is way ahead of the curve of other skincare companies, using the finer ingredients that produce better results.
We choose not to use the same common ingredients found so often in the industry today, instead we focus on the more exotic. 

Our research has found that these ingredients often contain multiple and higher percentages of properties that work in harmony to produce incredible skin benefits.

Sometimes these ingredients are difficult to source, however we are not prepared to compromise using cheap alternatives or imitations.

*Comedogenic rating is a scale that shows how likely a specific ingredient will clog your pores.
The scale ranges from a number in between 0 – 5, with 0 being non-comedogenic and 5 being the most severely comedogenic.

Those who are susceptible to acne and blackheads should avoid high comedogenic rating oils as they are more likely to cause recurring acne problems, however, people with drier skin might prefer a more emollient oil towards the middle of the scale.
