WHAT IS LIVING PUR™?
LIVING PUR™ was born out of a need to help people, who want to live a healthy lifestyle by using nontoxic consumer products, to make sense out of plethora of confusing, conflicting, and misleading information they find online, or in brands' messaging and product claims.
What is toxic? What is good-for-you and not harmful for the planet? What is scientifically proven to work and what is just a waste of your money, or the latest internet fad? We answer these questions for you to help you make more informed choices to live your best, healthiest life.
We are scientists who care about health, beauty, and the planet. And we are on a mission to demand more responsible, science based, and honest brands. So join us in LIVING PUR™ revolution!
Consumer products should contain only ingredients that are proven to be safe, not causing harm to user or the environment.
Story of clean ingredients is not as simple as just going 100% natural. There are many lab-made ingredients that are completely safe and non-toxic, and there are also natural ingredients that can cause harm, depending on their use and their concentration.
Ingredient transparency: All product ingredients should be clearly listed on the label, and always in the order of their concentration in the product.
Story transparency: Product claims, ingredient sourcing, manufacturing practices, and any certifications should be meaningful,
ethical, and easily accessible to consumers.
BACKED BY SCIENCE
We love science! So we do the hard work for you, reviewing scientific literature, books, and publications to decode product ingredients and claims, and bring to you only information backed by actual science. If you have ever felt lost while browsing the black hole of internet, not knowing who to trust, we are here for you!
Products should not only be safe, but should also work and perform as advertised. Enough with cosmetic products that leave your face feeling like an oil slick, or even worse, covered in pimples. Enough with cleaning products that are natural, but don't actually clean. Product performance is just as important as their safety and transparency.
