Is your skincare natural or organic, containing floral oils for effect? Puristry checks all the boxes when it comes to natural skin care products. Instead of being included for fragrance or popularity, our floral oils are incorporated to have a positive effect on the skin and to actually address a skincare need or concern. When it comes to skincare, florals are the unspoken heroes of most quality products. Instead of being cooked up in a lab, they are grown, sustainable and naturally powerful. Take roses for example; it may be hard to believe that a flower so rich in color actually reduces redness instead of enhancing it, but roses are naturally calming against redness, irritation and dryness. We included organic rosehip seed oil in our Restorative Facial Oil, contributing all the benefits listed above as well as promoting a smooth complexion and a subtle scent to enjoy. Our ingredients maximize the power of florals to create luxurious, healthy and effective products. Floral powerhouses such as chamomile, lavender and orange blossom come complete with essential oils that assist and support healthy balanced skin. They can also soothe the mind and body. Puristy celebrates the power of organic beauty products using pure floral oils to give you long-lasting, healthy results. Here’s what the organic lavender oil in our products is doing for your skin.
Lavender is Naturally Anti-Inflammatory
Has your skin ever felt tight or uncomfortable? This could have been a sign of inflammation. Inflamed skin can also show symptoms such as redness, itchiness, bumpiness and a stinging or burning sensation. External factors such as icy cold winds, frequent indoor heating and irritating or harmful cosmetic products only exacerbate the problem. Instead of slathering on a host of unfamiliar products, we believe that less is more. Our ingredient lists are easy to read and understand, so instead of 50 different ingredients that are more difficult to pronounce than they are helpful, we use only 100% organic lavender oil in our products to help calm upset skin. In addition to the rosehip seed oil we mentioned, our Restorative Facial Oil also contains organic lavender oil, perfect for fighting a sudden unsightly rash, blistering sunburn or soothing any inflammation away.
Lavender Reduces Anxiety and Emotional Stress
Ever heard the phrase, ‘stop and smell the roses’? In this case, we recommend stopping to smell the lavender. Historically, lavender has been significant in many cultures and for a variety of uses. Recently, lavender has made its way to the spotlight for fighting migraines, calming the mind and enhancing sleep quality. One way to incorporate lavender into your lifestyle is an organic tea. Try a cup each night about one hour before bed to get a better night’s sleep. Another option is to bring in lavender potpourri or an oil diffuser with lavender oil for your room or bathroom. Keep a small potted lavender plant at your desk and take a whiff when deadlines and meetings get the best of you. Better yet, keep your Restorative Facial Oil with you at all times and dab a bit on your temples or behind your neck to invite in more peaceful thoughts.
Lavender is Antibacterial
If you haven’t fallen in love with lavender yet, this benefit will seal the deal. Lavender contains bacteria killers and sebum regulators to bring skin to a state of harmony. This means it helps to keep pores clean of buildup but also fights acne and breakouts. One of the primary contributors to adult acne is bacteria. We transfer it to our skin all the time on accident – when our hair falls into our face, when we scratch, when we wrap our favorite cozy scarf around our neck – but thankfully we have the perfect thing to help keep acne at bay. Our Flower Water Toner incorporates over 7 powerful florals and essential oils, including organic lavender oil, which all come together to fight off acne-causing bacteria for a smooth, clean and balanced complexion. Each morning and night, apply onto clean skin to neutralize any excess oil or bacteria. Add a bit into a spray bottle and spritz onto the center of your face throughout the day for a midday pick-me-up on the go.
In terms of skin, we like to think of lavender as a peacemaker. It is an antioxidant flower that fights off bacteria and free radicals to bring our skin to a clean balance. Being that lavender is an antioxidant, it is much more powerful than a synthetic alternative that can cause aged, unhealthy skin down the line. Lavender helps to prevent stress and headaches and overall uplifts our moods. In addition, lavender is ultra-calming and smoothing. Lavender does everything possible to give us happy, healthy skin, that’s why all of Puristry products contain 100% organic lavender oil. In a product like our Yerba Mate Eye Cream for instance, lavender helps to improve circulation to de-puff swollen eyes and dark circles for a youthful appearance. With an organic face moisturizer or eye cream like ours, there is huge payoff and very little risk. Consider our organic face wash, the Nopal Cactus Cleanser. In concert with the bergamot and vetiver oils, the organic lavender oil in this natural face wash helps to repair scarring and stimulate new skin growth. What we put on and in our bodies is so important because it affects how we look and how we feel. With Puristry, we don’t manipulate products that can result in a reduced effect; instead we are passionate about providing natural cosmetics with impactful, quality ingredients such as lavender, that make you look and feel great.
