Pura Ingredients: Aloe Vera


One key ingredient in our hand cream is aloe vera. The spiked green plant you see out in your yard has been used for centuries as a treatment for several skin conditions. Studies show it heals; wounds, dry skin, minor infections and even sunburn, quicker than the standard dressing. It has been known as the ‘plant of immortality’ since the time of the ancient Egyptians. The tough-skinned plant is cut open to gain access to the clear gel inside which … READ MORE

Pura Ingredients: African Ginger


A key ingredient in our soap bars is African Ginger. This natural root harvested in South Africa is regarded as Africa’s best all natural anti-inflammatory aid.

Pura Ingredients: Himalayan Sea Salt


Pass the Salt… Not that PINK stuff! The Himalayan Mountain range stretches across Asia, passing through China, Nepal and India. Although these mountains are often known for Mount Everest, their highest peak, here is something new to think about – salt.

However, there are no health benefits to peppermint fragrance oil. We only use the … READ MORE

History of Mother’s Day
