Purito is a natural skin care brand from Korea that uses safe and honest ingredients sourced naturally and rated the EWG (Environmental Working Group is an American environmental organization) Green level that is safe for everyone.
Purito’s products are against animal testing and free from parabens, ethanol, surfactants, artificial coloring, fragrance, triethanolamine, phthalein, triclosan, petrochemicals and benzoyl peroxide. Their products also does not include 20 ingredients of concern and 26 kinds of allergic ingredients. People with sensitive skin should stay clear of paraben, PEG and phenoxyethanol.
The products came in simple packaging made with biodegradable, recycled paper and the products itself reminded me of toothpaste. Although it may all look unrefined and not pretty, Purito ensures that all the unnecessary cost goes right into sourcing for better ingredients.
Their products are also inexpensive and most people may have the misconception that expensive products/brands are better. However, you may be paying for fanciful looking packaging, advertising and commercials instead.
Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum
This cruelty-free concentrated pure Vitamin C serum contains 10% Ascorbic acid and 84% Hyaluronic Acid. Doctors had cautioned against using Vitamin C concentrations higher than 10-15% as it does not result in better skin absorption and you may even run the risk of having skin irritation. Vitamin C is also great for whitening and protection against free radicals damage but it doesn’t work well with some other active ingredients in your skin care repertoire such as retinol, glycolic, salicylic and lactic acid.
I had to stop using this serum after 3 days because of dryness and bad flaking of my skin as Vitamin C is formulated at low pH which can be irritating to the skin. My skin has always been on the dry side so I will have to focus more on hydrating skin care for now.
Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream
Formulated with 70% sea buckthorn extract in a natural orange peel oil, the sea buckthorn cream has a refreshing citrusy fragrance which I like. Besides skin whitening and anti-aging benefits, the sea buckthorn cream can also help to brighten dull skin tone.
Various vitamins are contained in sea buckthorn fruit extract such as:
- Vitamin E for skin protection
- Vitamin A for lifting
- Vitamin C for whitening & anti-aging
- Vitamin D for improving the skin’s immune system
- Vitamin B for nutrition
- Vitamin P for anti-bacterial effect
- Vitamin K for anti-aging
Purito Deep Sea Pure Water Cream
This product contains 60% of clean deep sea water which helps to supply hydration to the skin and removal of dead skin cells. Other natural ingredients includes kelp, Caulerpa Lentillifera (softens skin texture) and Laminaria Japonica (for cellular regeneration) which can be used on all skin types including sensitive skin and acne prone skin.
I like it that the cream is lightweight, does not feel tacky on the skin, and is a great hydration product for my dry skin. On days when I need a more intensive hydrating product, I will use an organic facial oil instead.
