When you are pregnant, finding skincare products turns into a real challenge. One, you need to be more aware than ever of the ingredients you are applying to your skin. You are moisturizing for two now. Two, over-scented or synthetically-scented products will overrun your super sensitive nose, creating dreaded nausea. With awareness of negative ingredients in common and popular products today, consumers are looking to natural and organic products more than ever. Enter: organic skincare by 100% Pure.
100% Pure offers a vast variety of products, all organic, vegan and deliciously (and naturally) scented. Covering you from literally head to toe, 100% Pure offers makeup, skincare, bath & body, hands, hair and even kids products. Since I wanted to try items that pregnant ladies would be especially interested in, I opted in for the Body Scrub and Body Butter. There were so many decadent sounding scents that I found it hard to choose and ultimately asked for help. I love everything citrus, so I was recommend the Blood Orange scent and boy was I happy I agreed. The aroma that come wafting out of the containers is just lovely. It is natural, light and uplifting — and I always find citrus scents invigorating. Pregnant ladies always need a little lift and a burst of fresh energy, which is what I found in 100% Pure’s Blood Orange Body Scrub and Body Butter.
First we scrub. When the products arrived, I knew I would start with a nice calf and foot soak followed by a scrub and moisturizer. So I pulled out my trusty FlexiBATH and filled it partially with super warm water. The body scrub was exactly what it should be, simplistic in nature. It had just the right texture to buff to perfection, not overly abrasive. The scrub is also quite moisturizing and left my skin ultra smooth and soft. It contains high concentrations of skin nourishing ingredients and anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins.
Once my footsies were dry I tested out the body butter, a moisturizer with a very curious consistency. At first touch it is hard, then it gives easily. It had the perks of a stiff moisturizer — substantial, heavy moisture — but also the perks of a softer one that turned instantly to butter on my warm skin. It spread easily and sank right into my skin, leaving me with happy, supple stems that did not need a second coat. You know the kind, the kind of lotion that seems great but then “dries” leading you to a second application, but not here. Perhaps most curious, the body butter has a slightly gritty underlying texture. It is not abrasive by any means and I found it to be quite a pleasant surprise. The butter contains the same benefits as the scrub in way of antioxidants, vitamins and moisturizers.
These products are 100% Pure — no synthetic chemicals, no artificial fragrances, no preservatives, no alcohol or any other toxins. Perfect for anyone who is conscious about what they slather on their skin. 100% Pure has not been classified as “pregnancy safe” so that is not what I am claiming. I just think it is important for people to truly understand how dangerous some products can be and how surprisingly benign a competitor with the seemingly same product can be. Just search on Good Guide and do the research. I found that a good majority of products labeled “for pregnant women” scored less than perfect (you will be shocked to see how bad stretch mark creams can be). On the flip-side, 100% Pure gets a 10 out of 10 when it comes to safe, healthy ingredients. I’ll let you decide for yourself.
