— so you can get your glow on from the inside out
We are obsessed with ACURE shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and facial products because they are made with plant + food based ingredients and without toxic chemicals. So many conventional personal care products use toxic and potentially dangerous chemicals that are, in many cases, linked to long-term health effects and diseases like breast cancer. We love that all of ACURE’s personal care products are free from gluten, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, harmful preservatives, and artificial colors.
Most consumers do not realize that these chemicals are widely used and are surprised to learn that many are banned in other countries. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics works to educate consumers and advocate for legislation designed to eliminate dangerous chemicals linked to adverse health impacts from cosmetics and personal care products. Review this list — Chemicals of Concern to learn more about which ingredients to avoid and to find safer and cleaner alternatives. You can also download the Think Dirty App so that when you’re out shopping you can simply scan the product barcode for a safety rating and clear science-based ingredient information.
For all of these reasons, ACURE has always formulated their products using ingredients that are literally food for the skin — organic ingredients of such purity and high quality, you could even find them on supplement shelves. The Cleansing Towelettes are particularly convenient for busy students and are available at a very accessible price point ($6.99).
A healthy diet is the key to healthy skin. In fact, many estheticians and nutritionists agree that skin issues can be an early indication of internal imbalance. A skincare regimen can help healing and recovery on the surface, but it won’t stop the underlying issues causing skin concerns until internal balance and health is restored. This inspired ACURE to create new wellness products, that help you get the nutrition you need for glowing, vibrant skin.
Amy Halman, the past president of ACURE who developed the wellness line says, “We wanted to create the kinds of supplements and foods that truly support the body and the skin to function optimally. It’s almost impossible, in most current lifestyles, to get all the essential nutrients needed on a regular basis, so we made sure the formulas were not just high-dose protein shakes or loads of green foods that were hard to digest. We designed well-balanced, bioavailable formulas for maximum vitamin, mineral, enzymatic and probiotic support, as well as easy nutrient absorption. The proteins and green superfood powders are also USDA certified organic, assuring non-GMO ingredients and no pesticide contamination.”
ACURE, founded on sustainable principles, provides the highest quality natural and certified organic personal care products and now they bring that same level of purity and integrity to organic meal replacements and supplements. The new Organic Power Meals in Original, Chocolate, and Vanilla Cinnamon are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free with antioxidants, fiber, probiotics, and enzymes to help balance and alkalize the system for a nutrient rich energy boost. The Green Super Food, Magnesium with B Complex, Total Probiotic, Omega 3, and Vitamin C cover all the essentials you need for proper daily nutrition and beautiful, healthy skin.
