We cold process our ingredients to ensure maximum benefits are retained from the original ingredient source. Heat extraction often involves chemical processing that leaves chemical traces which can be transferred into your skin. High heat also diminishes much of the naturally occurring vitamins and nutrients, and can alter the intended nature of the oil.
Yes, all of our products are vegan and cruelty-free.
Yes, we certified all of the products in the Puristry line with the USDA.
Our Facial Oil is great for instilling potent active oils, fatty acids, and vitamins into all skin types; even oily skin. Serums are formulated with smaller molecules to penetrate deeply into skin, and contain vitamins and nutrients plus peptides for plumping skin.
Puristry is gentle and effective enough to be used on all skin types.
Puristry products are made with an essential oil blend of organic bergamot, cedarwood, vetiver, sage, and lavender. This blend has a fresh, herbal aroma that is gender neutral.
Yes, normally Bergamot is an essential oil associated with photosensitivity/ phototoxicity, meaning it is not safe to use in the sun. However, for Puristry we specifically chose a Bergamot oil that was formulated without bergapten, the ingredient within Bergamot that triggers photosensitive reactions. This allows our bergapten-free Bergamot oil to be safely used in the sun.
Because Puristry is made with no chemical emulsifiers or thickeners, some separation is to be expected. We recommend shaking before each use to evenly disperse ingredients before dispensing. For example, the Nopal Cactus Cleanser is made mostly from nopal cactus, so you can actually see the polysaccharide pulp of the plant inside the cleanser; this is completely normal.
Puristry formulations are safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding; however, they do contain safe minimal concentrations of natural essential oils. Certain individuals may be more sensitive to general or specific essential oils, like vetiver and sage. For the best and safest results, we highly recommend consulting with your primary health care provider prior to starting any new skincare regimen.
