Most of our ingredients are gathered at soaring altitudes of the Himalayas by micro-credit and women self-help groups. Through these partnerships, marginalized producers engage with urban markets on fair terms.
Many of us are currently seeking a closer connection to the earth, through immersive experiences and a desire for rejuvenating simplicity. We’re awakened to subtle nuances in the way we live -- and discovering magic in the details. At the helm of this movement is a discernment for what is truly worth celebrating: the deep thread of infinite wisdom from ancient communities, raw transcendent beauty free of ornamentation, and craftsmanship that nourishes the body, mind and soul.
This approach to living created Purearth, our artisanal skincare and wellness brand, which equally values the ingredients, maker and you.
Natural rhythm and ritual inform how we create our line. We travel far to forage, returning to concoct, blend and bottle by hand in limited batches at our studio. Evoking harmony between mind, body and soul, our plant and mineral based formulations are rooted in ancient Ayurvedic wisdom and a revelation in sustaining beauty and wellness.
Because nearly 60% of what we apply onto our body is absorbed into our bloodstream, Purearth promises superlative ingredients, sourced responsibly and harnessed at the peak of their potency.
