When it comes to handling some of the most common skin care problems “nature knows best”. That’s why there’s been quite a surge in demand for plant-based products, in addition to a desire to go cruelty-free and help connect to and protect the natural world.
In fact, plant-based skin care products like Pure Fiji are more sustainable than traditional beauty products because of their sourcing and manufacturing. Here’s why:
- Botanical ingredients such as the blend of nut oils are wild harvested, which means we select the nuts from trees that grow in their natural habitat. This reduces our requirement for energy, dependent irrigation and fertilisation methods thus limiting our carbon impact.
- Seed oils are cold pressed, coconut oil is used to power cars and generators in rural communities, and a tree planting program is in place.
- At the Pure Fiji complex in Suva, gardens and buildings alike have been designed to maximise insulation and reduce the factory's dependence on air conditioning.
- By-products from processing of our raw ingredients are recycled as fertiliser and mulch for factory gardens - and a massive vegetable plot supplies factory staff with a constant stream of organic produce.
Whether you are searching for an effective plant-based moisturiser that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth or a hydrating toner full of potent vitamins and plant ensymes that can help minimise the appearance of large pores, you also want to feel good about the products you are using. This is exactly what we strive for in all our formulations at Pure Fiji: botanical and plant-based products that not only help you feel good about your skin but are planet nourishing as well.
What’s the Difference Between Plant-Based and Botanicals in Skin Care?
Plant-based beauty products are made using plant extracts and plant oils.
Botanical skin care includes healing and nourishing plant extracts and oils, and these can be derived from flowers, herbs, nuts, seeds, roots, leaves, barks and berries.
What are The Benefits of Plant-based?
- Loaded with antioxidants: Offers powerful anti-aging benefits.
- Anti-inflammatory: Plant oils contain phospholipids, which exhibit anti-inflammatory properties that can help maintain homeostasis within our skin barrier. A healthy epidermis, or outermost layer of skin, is especially important for preventing harmful microbes and bacteria from forming and maintaining a balanced pH.
- Hydrating: Plant oils can also create a protective barrier to help our skin cells maintain the water needed for proper function.
- A holistic approach to skin nutrition: The ingredients are less irritating, with fewer side effects than their synthetic counterparts.
- Environmentally friendly: Much more sustainable for our environment.
- Cruelty-Free: Plant-based beauty products are not only kinder to you and your skin, but to animals as well.
