Every Day is Earth Day at 100% Pure

Posted by Purity Cosmetics on

100% Pure products are truly environmentally friendly: our formulas, packaging, labels, and packing materials are all safe for you and environmentally friendly. In honor of Earth Day, we wanted to highlight the ways that 100% Pure is green.

Biodegradable formulas
It starts with our 100% natural, biodegradable formulas that don’t contain any harmful chemicals or toxins that can pollute our bodies or our earth. This means our formulas are so pure, you can pour our formulas into the ground and they easily decompose into safe natural matter.


Solar power
100% Pure products are made with sun power! Our headquarters and manufacturing buildings boast solar-powered roofs that produce about 235,000 kilowatt-hours per year, preventing about 170 metric tons of carbon dioxide from being emitted through the utility company. That’s the equivalent of removing 33 cars from the roads, or planting 4,400 trees.

We also offer a free electric car charging station for our employees that have electric cars. The 100% Pure team has planted thousands of plants, trees, and flowers to help beautify our local city of San Jose, California, and have installed a well to catch rain to use in our gardens and in our bathrooms.

Recycled packaging
100% Pure packaging is made from recycled materials – post-consumer recycled glass, plastic, tin and paper.  Materials otherwise that would have compiled into ever-growing landfills. Instead of creating more trash, we always package all our pure formulas in packaging that was once a water bottle, old coffee paper cup, old beer bottle, etc..

After you are done using your 100% Pure product, please continue the cycle and instead of placing
in your trash, put in the recycling bin. If it is a plastic container, recycle with your other  plastic #2, #4, or #5. If it’s a glass container, please recycle with other glass; if it’s metal packaging, please recycle with your soda cans.

Non-toxic soy and vegetable inks

We use soy and vegetable inks on everything we print – from catalogs, labels, boxes, ribbons  and even our makeup which is all colored from fruit and vegetable dyes! These natural fruit / vegetable / soy inks are non toxic and don’t pollute our environment or our oceans when washed down.

Recycled packing materials
When you order from our website, the boxes that carry your products are from 100% recycled paper.  The popcorn that cushions to protect your item is from 100% biodegradable (melts into corn starch when you add water to it).  And when you finally open up your package – everything you’re holding is from recycled materials: the outer box for our skincare is from recycled paper printed with soy / vegetable ink, the glass packaging is from recycled glass, and the formula inside is 100% biodegradable!
