Luckily for us, skin care products continue to be developed for us today to tackle the inevitable problems and imperfections that come with our skin, meaning we’ll never run out of options to try.
As of lately, products that have ditched the typical chemicals-and-preservatives mix in favour of more natural and environmentally-friendly ingredients have been stacking up the five star reviews by a landslide; these are products with no allergens, parabens, or alcohol, but with essential oils, acids, and water + plant-based natural sources.
A brand we support that follows an organic, cruelty-free based philosophy is K'Pure Naturals. Creator Karen Johnson founded the brand in Mission, British Columbia shortly after the birth of her youngest son - she made it her quest to find the best natural skin care solutions when she realized that the products she was using were the cause of the abnormally high levels of aluminum and plastics found in her son's system. Having spent years studying various combinations of all natural ingredients, Karen has since perfected her organic formulas and they are now successfully sold all over North America under the K'Pure Naturals brand.
We're aware that our skin needs the most attention and TLC (tender loving care) as the weather transitions, so we've restocked the best sellers and added some new additions from K'Pure Naturals for you and your whole family to enjoy.
For a light, refreshing cleanse to start and end your day, we recommend using Washed Up Unscented Foaming Baby and Face Wash. It's a gentle, water and soap-based cleanser that is unscented and non-drying for the skin // Available in 50ml and 210ml.
If subtle, gentle scents are more up your alley, Sleepy Time Foaming Baby and Face Wash works just as effectively as the unscented version, containing the same essential oil ingredients, but with the addition of organic lavender for an ultra calming effect // Available in 50ml and 210ml.
Follow with a few spritzes of Settle Down Calming Spray / Dream Catcher Spray (the rebranded version for children) onto a cotton pad and distribute it evenly over your face as a toner. Because of the combination of witch hazel and essential oils, they can also be used as a quick, refreshing make up setting spray, a room spray, a body spray, and even as a pillow spray to help lull your little one to sleep // Available in 30ml and 100ml.
More Summer Essentials for Extra TLC:
To keep those pesky bugs away this summer, we've stocked up on Stop Bugging Spray Oil which works as an excellent all natural, lightweight and non-greasy insect repellent alternative. It's made of organic and non-GMO soybean oil, pure vanilla extract, and a classic K'Pure Naturals blend of organic essential oils such as lemon eucalyptus, citronella, and peppermint // Available in 80ml.
For an all-round balm for dry, eczema-prone skin, sore nipples, and baby bum rashes, K'Pure's Overachiever Body Balm works as the ultimate cure. It's a mild, unscented balm made of 100% organic ingredients (beeswax, calendula, chickweed infused castor oil, shea butter, and Vitamin E) making it super safe to use all day, all summer, and all year long // Available in 2oz and 4oz.
Hydrate your sun-soaked skin with Chill Out Aloe Vera Mist this season! Made of a refreshing blend of organic essential oils, witch hazel, and aloe vera, this spray can help soothe sun burns and even those itchy bug bites. Store it in the fridge for 2-4 hours or until it's cold for an extra cooling effect or use it as a hydrating toner after cleansing // Available in 30ml.
We love every product from K'Pure Naturals - they each contain a special, perfected blend of organic essential oils that we can integrate into our daily skin care and bedtime routines and are also evidently made with care. Inexpensive and safe for the whole family, they take into account the benefits that all natural ingredients have on our skin and most importantly, on the environment itself.
We'll continue to find + source the best environmentally-friendly brands in lifestyle, apparel, and skin care to carry in-store + online, and we'll keep you posted on any of our restocks and new additions.
Some final words of encouragement for you to remember and part with: skin care is self-care and self-care is beautiful.
