WHAT IS LIVING PUR™?
LIVING PUR™ helps people and small brands, who want to lead healthy lifestyle by using or making nontoxic consumer products, to make sense of confusing, conflicting, and misleading information they find online, in brands' messaging, and product claims.
What is safe? What is good—for—you and not harmful for the planet? What is scientifically proven to work and not just a waste of your money, the latest internet fad, or fear mongering campaign? We answer these questions to help you make more informed choices to live your best, healthiest life or to put the most effective and safe products on the market.
We are scientists who care about health, beauty, consumer safety, and the planet. Our mission is 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 natural ingredients that can cause harm, depending on their use and level in the formula.
Ingredient transparency: All ingredients should be clearly listed on a 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 also work and perform as advertised. Enough with face creams that leave your face feeling like an oil slick, or worse, covered in pimples. Enough with cleaning products that don't actually clean or long-wear nail polish that lasts a day. Product performance is just as important as their safety and transparency.
