It all started with problem skin

A host of skin care problems and frustration with the available skin care options led us on a quest to make our solution. Research into common cosmetic ingredients taught us how much crap is in the products we put on our skin. When we use lotions, deodorants, and lip balm, our skin absorbs compounds and nutrients as if we were eating them. If you would think twice about eating parabens, phthalates, nitrosamines, cyclosiloxanes, glycol ethers, or potassium sorbate, you should think twice about slathering them on your body in the form of lotion and makeup.

What is in my skin-care?

Why are these chemicals in our skin’s “food”? Synthetics are cheap to manufacture. Large cosmetic manufacturers fill products with preservatives to keep them from spoiling on the shelf, and with cheap fillers to increase volume. While the science is impressive, these chemicals go on and into our skin along with cosmetics. Many of these additives weaken our skin’s natural defenses, exacerbate allergies, and cause painful irritation that make living in skin a nightmare.

It’s time to hold our skin care to a higher standard

Pure Good is based on one principle: no food goes on our bodies that should not go in our bodies. To realize this vision, we have started from scratch with food-grade ingredients to create organic vegan skin care products based on wisdom from cosmeticians, scientists, and healers. The result is Pure Good Skin Food.

Letting pure, natural ingredients shine

Pure Good lotions, balms, scrubs, and conditioners are free of all additives, preservatives, dyes, and dilutants. We let the ingredients shine in our products, using the purest raw materials. From pure aloe vera, rich plant oils, to nutritious extracts, our products are tailored to treat each precious part of your skin with nourishing care, whatever its condition. Every hand-crafted ounce is made with food-grade ingredients, graced with natural fragrances, and free of everything else.
