Right this moment we have now Karen, the founding father of Ok’pure on the weblog. You guys have most likely seen or heard Lauryn LOVING her Settle Down spray for years. She is simply obsessive about this tremendous clear model.
We’re so excited that Karen is right here to speak about why pure merchandise are key. Not solely is she a badass entrepreneur, she’s a mother. So she actually will get that folks don’t need to put shit on their child’s pores and skin (or their very own for that matter).
Let’s get proper into it. (& keep tuned for a particular code on the finish of the put up).
When my third son (I’ve three sons and a daughter) was a new child, he was discovered to have excessive ranges of aluminum and parabens (plastics) in his system. Seems, what I used to be placing on my physique with deodorants and physique lotions was coming into my system and in flip, his breast milk. That day, I researched home made deodorant recipes and stored a bowl of baking soda combined with coconut oil beneath my toilet sink.
Quick ahead six years: I owned a small health studio for girls and I made some lip balm and physique scrub as promotional objects for the health club. These objects have been seen by the ladies on the studio and understanding I used to be additionally making my very own deodorant, they requested merchandise for themselves. They turned out to be the very best take a look at marketplace for my deodorant and the merchandise developed into what’s now K’pure Naturals. Now not making the merchandise in my kitchen, you’ll find us on-line and in over 300 retail shops throughout North America!
I’ve realized lots within the twelve years since I first made clear merchandise for myself and my household. Right here’s what retains me utilizing and producing merchandise containing naturally-derived components and important oils.
Why Important Oils & Pure Merchandise Are Key:
♡ What you place in your physique is simply as vital as what you place in your physique.
Our pores and skin is our largest organ and it’ll soak up the entire components we apply. This implies skincare, physique lotion, deodorant and sure, even make-up!
Do you know: the common lady consumes 4 to 9 kilos of lipstick/lip balm in her lifetime?
♡ Recognizing and with the ability to pronounce the components in your skincare retains you answerable for what enters your physique.

♡ Clear, pure components might be simply as efficient, if no more efficient, than artificial components.
With regards to caring for your pores and skin, an extended record of components doesn’t assure higher outcomes. Assume natural shea butter, natural calendula oil (we infuse our personal calendula petals into natural oil for extremely hydration and pores and skin therapeutic) and candy almond oil for moisturizing pores and skin head to toe.
Do you know: a very good tip is to use a beneficiant layer of your favorite plant-based moisturizer or balm (I take advantage of our Repair It restore balm) to dry heels and ft earlier than mattress. Cowl with a pair of cotton socks to lock in moisture, and to maintain your sheets clear, and get up to clean, hydrated ft! The identical might be completed on dry palms, utilizing a pair of cotton gloves.
♡ Pure merchandise are usually higher for the setting than artificial merchandise.

Issues like nut butters and oils shall be absorbed again into the earth, the place the method of producing and disposing of components like parabens and phthalates, will trigger hurt to mom nature.
Do you know: okay’pure doesn’t use outer packaging with any of our merchandise as a further step to cut back pointless waste.
♡ Clear components and most pure skincare aren’t examined on animals.
All the time examine that the model you’re supporting is cruelty-free, however when the merchandise include solely clear, pure components, you may really feel assured understanding that animals weren’t subjected to testing of chemical substances and unnatural components.
Do you know: lavender important oil, when used responsibly (not ingested or utilized topically undiluted), is nice for calming canines. A favorite of ours (and Lauryn’s) is our Settle Down spray and diffuser oil.
♡ Clear merchandise might be multipurpose.
When merchandise are clear, with simple to learn ingredient lists, you’ll discover they can be utilized for greater than what they’re marketed for. After we began promoting our natural child wash, Sleepy Time, we stored listening to from mothers who liked utilizing it as their nighttime facial cleanser! This implies clear magnificence for the entire household while not having a cluttered counter of merchandise!
Do you know: advertising and marketing has led us to consider that we want a special product for each a part of our physique, and for various occasions of the day. Our Drenched whipped face and physique butter is a good instance of natural components mixed to offer deep hydration, head to toe!
♡ Pure merchandise are often undiluted and concentrated, which means somewhat can go a good distance, which additionally makes them simpler in your pocketbook.
When merchandise are free from unnatural fillers and water, you may management how a lot is utilized. For instance: apply a concentrated physique butter to damp pores and skin. This enables the butters and oils to be absorbed into pores and skin and far much less product is used.

An important a part of wellness is training. Take the time to study in regards to the values of the manufacturers you select to assist, the components they use and discover merchandise that work finest for you and your loved ones.
