PURIFY + SCRUB = THE PERFECT MASK MIXTURE

Cleanse, clarify, and calm with PURIFY. One of our favorite ways to enjoy PURIFY is as a weekly mask. We apply it to dry skin and leave it on for approximately 10 minutes before lathering and rinsing it off with our facial sea sponge and tepid water. PURIFY is wonderfully effective as a cleanser but when we use this green goddess product as a mask, its key ingredients are able to further penetrate the skin.French green clay, white clay and a touch of bentonite draw impurities from the skin while providing vital minerals and neutralizing free radicals from our cell phones, computers, and the environment. The Dead Sea salt, olive leaf powder, and tea tree oil cleanse the pores and...

METAPHYSICS AND MINERAL

Minerals are essential for healthy cellular functioning. Rather than using synthesized minerals in our REFRESH Mineral Mist, we source ethically mined gemstones that provide a synergy of supplemental trace minerals.  Malachite, olivine, and smithsonite provide our formula with copper, magnesium, and zinc respectively. Together, they have proven to stimulate, oxygenate, and protect cell health, while inhibiting free radical damage and glycation.

ACTIVATE has proven time and time again to help improve uneven, dry and rough skin. Finely milled volcanic ash allows for gentle...

WHAT DOES A HEALTHY SKIN PH MEAN?

To keep skin healthy, hydrated and protected from environmental aggressors it's important to maintain a healthy skin pH. But what does that mean?The pH scale ranges from 1-14. The lower numbers are acidic and the higher numbers are alkaline. The pH of human skin is 5.4 -5.9, making it slightly acidic. An acidic pH keeps moisture in and makes the skin a hostile environment for potential pathogens, free radicals and harmful toxins. Too much acidity however can increase your chances of inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and acne. It's all about balance :)Interestingly the pH of our body varies from area to area. The face, neck, chest, and hands are more alkaline than lesser exposed parts of the body such...
