Why we use natural ingredients in our skincare

Did you know that your skin absorbs about 60% of everything we put onto it, including your skincare products.
Many skincare products contain chemicals that harm not only ourselves but our environment and our animals. Most of us either don’t read the ingredients on the products we use or we don’t understand what they mean. You wouldn’t eat anything that contained chemicals, right… so why put it on your skin?

These synthetic man-made chemicals are absorbed into your blood stream and are known as endocrine disrupters. This means they can disrupt the function of our hormones or thyroid. The more of these products you use on a daily basis such as skincare, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body lotion, aftershave etc the more toxicity accumulates. This build-up of chemicals can lead to hormonal imbalance, increasing estrogens which can upset testosterone balance.

Do you want to be using synthetic petrochemical derivatives to influence the scent, texture, colour of your product while disregarding the health of your skin?

The good news is that Pure Face Co. products are nourishing, healthy and free from toxins. We respect the health of your body as well as your skin.
Why do Natural Skincare products cost more?

Our Pure Face Co products contain approx 95% active ingredients. In comparison, synthetic skin care products contain as little as 5 to 10% of active ingredients. Naturally derived botanicals are expensive but effective. We chose to add herbs such as Astragalus, Cats Claw, Bilberry and Baical Skullcap as our active ingredients as they are so effective at reducing inflammation and rich in anti-oxidants to reduce environmental damage to your skin.

The good news is that Pure Face Co. skincare is highly concentrated so you only need to use a small amount, one pump at a time, saving you money in the long run.
Not tested on animals

We are committed to not using any products that are tested on animals. In fact, our products are naturally derived so they don’t require testing on animals at all.
Good for our environment

Since natural and organic products use naturally grown ingredients that are free from toxic pesticides and fertilizers, they don’t leave a harmful footprint on the planet, especially in the soil, water and the air. There are also significantly less waste and toxins going down the drain and back into the earth during the manufacturing of our products.

Pure Face Co. also uses recyclable packaging as much as possible to minimize our environmental impact and support the sustainability of our environment.
Natural skincare is backed by science

One of the common misconceptions is that natural skincare isn’t tested for purity and doesn’t undergo scientific testing. This is simply not true. Natural skincare products have to adhere to the same guidelines as synthetic products to ensure safety and optimal results to all skin types. Pure Face Co. has gone through vigorous testing to ensure effectiveness is maintained in hot and cold temperatures and maintain its integrity for the shelf life of 2 years.

Do men need skin care?

The concept that “real men” don’t need skin care is simply not true. Skin is skin, male or female, we all have the same skin with the same concerns. Facial skin requires cleaning just like the rest of your body to reduce bacteria, reduce blemishes, remove environmental toxins, improve texture of your skin and reduce the effects of aging. Replenishing moisture lost in your skin is important to reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Here at Pure Face Co. we get it that guys don’t have a lot of time to spend on their skin. However, contrary to popular belief splashing on a bit of shower gel or body wash is not suitable for your face. Why? They raise the PH too much, causing dryness that can actually clog your pores.

So we decided to keep it to a simple 2 step process with Pure Face Co. No complicated routines, just 2 products. Use face wash in the shower and moisturise when you get out. Simple as that!

If you want to look your best, why not take the time to care for your face in the same way you might care for your car. Regular maintenance is the key.

Step 1
Pure Face Co AHA facial wash (and using it daily, each time your shower) is the vital ingredient to removing excess oil, bacteria and toxins to get your complexion looking better than ever. AHA’s are alpha hydroxy fruit acids that help to remove dead skin cells to unclog pores preventing blemishes, blackheads and promote healthy looking skin. Easy to use while you are in the shower. Add one pump to wet hands and massage into a foam on your face, then rinse off.

Initially AHA’s can cause a little tingling or redness but your skin will quickly get used to them. AHA’s help to exfoliate the dead skin cells, allowing your skin to drink up the moisturiser without clogging your pores.

Step 2

Pure Face Co. moisturiser is the next step. (use at least once a day or after each time you shower) We have chosen special herbs and antioxidants to improve hydration, reduce inflammation and improve the texture of your skin. This plumps your skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also reduces environmental toxins damaging your skin. 

If you’re serious about making your skin look and feel great, choosing Pure Face Co. is a great step. Simple, effective, and natural skincare you can trust. Pure Face Co. has been professionally formulated under the watchful eye of our Naturopath with botanic ingredients without all the nasties. If you want to do skincare right, going natural is your best bet.

At Pure Face Co. we make great skincare right here on the Sunshine Coast, Australia that does everything it needs to do to improve your skin. Designed for all skin types and created from naturally derived ingredients, our men’s range of products make skincare easy. All you have to do is ‘add to cart’ and enjoy the results of good quality skincare.
