EARTH DAY: Using soy and vegetable inks

blog_veggies

Even though we’re firm believers in giving back to the earth all year long, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to not only celebrate Earth Day but to continue our series, showing you what steps we take at 100% Pure to give back to our environment.

Earth Day marks a day where everyone, globally, has a chance  to give back to mother earth. We believe in taking great care of our earth and all that we do at 100% Pure reflects this.  We actually use soy and vegetable inks on everything we print – from our catalogs and labels, right down to our boxes and ribbons. We love giving back to our environment as we strive to use ingredients that are 100% derived from the earth. We’re known for our Fruit Pigmented Cosmetics. This literally means we use natural earth-derived dyes and colorants. This goes with our soy inks, being non-toxic and non-polluting to our environment our oceans when washed down.

This is just another small step we take in giving back to our environment, how about you? Won’t you join us in giving back and preserving the earth? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Recycle and Be Rewarded

email_0415_recycle_01

In honor of Earth Day, we wanted to highlight the many ways that 100% Pure is green. 100% Pure is truly environmentally friendly – all of our packaging is sourced from recycled materials – post-consumer recycled glass, plastic, tin and paper. If not for recycling, these materials would otherwise have added into the earth’s ever-growing landfills. So instead of creating more trash, we package all our pure formulas with recycled materials – items that were once a water bottle, old coffee paper cup, old beer bottle, etc.

In addition, we are launching our Recycle and be Rewarded program this Earth Day, April 22nd! It’s simple: bring back used, empty 100% Pure products to any 100% Pure retail store location and receive a stamp card. Once you receive ten stamps, you’ll be rewarded with a complimentary product. We’ll take care recycling all the used packaging we receive back from you, so we can continue the cycle. Thank you for helping us take care of our earth!

How to Contour & Highlight Your Face

blog_contour.highlight_0408By contouring and highlighting your face, you can make your face appear slimmer, play up your favorite features, and give your skin a beautiful, radiant glow.

Contouring adds depth to the face. Following the diagram, use the chocolate pigmented Cocoa Glow Bronzer and apply along the underside of the cheekbone. Contour can also be added to the sides of the nose to make your nose appear thinner, and along the jawline to slim the face. Be sure to blend well.

Highlighting will make certain areas of your face pop out. Using the velvety smooth, long lasting cream formulas in Halo or Star, apply to the center of the forehead, just under the arch of the brow, in the center of eyelid and in the inner corners of the eyes, high point of the cheekbone,bridge of the nose, on the cupid’s bow, and on the tip of the chin.

Use your favorite fruit pigmented lip & cheek tint on the apples of the cheeks, between the highlight and contour. Then, finish with a light sweep of Pink Champagne Luminescent Powder all over the face – this universally flattering luminizer contains different colored tones of light reflective pigments that give skin an airbrushed finish, instantly making skin more beautiful.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: Kelp & Mint Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner

This weeks product review is for our Kelp & Mint Shampoo and Conditioner!kelpmint

Fine hair often takes on a limp, sparse appearance and this is mainly due to using the wrong shampoo and conditioner. Most shampoos on the market contain various cancer causing toxins and chemicals, and fail to deliver the volume and body they promise to. This is because most shampoos and conditioners contain heavy conditioning or de-tangling ingredients that build up in your hair and produce a “limp and heavy” appearance.

For those of you on a search for a thickening shampoo that is all natural and free of preservatives and chemicals, our Kelp & Mint Shampoo and Conditioner is for you! It’s formulated with mint extract to stimulate the senses, while kelp extract and seaweed collagen extracts give hair luster and volume to add body to the hair while also nourishing your strands.

Key Benefits:

  • 100% natural, 100% vegan, gluten free
  • for fortified, thicker hair
  • gentle enough for color treated hair
  • kelp helps to thicken and fortify hair and seaweed collagen boosts shine
  • all natural formula does not contain synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, sulfates, detergents or any other harsh ingredients
