I think I’ve firmly established that I am super picky about how I spend my dollar these days, and this is a company that is doing everything right.
OrganicaPure’s line of luxurious beauty products— from lotions to scrubs to cleansers— are purposely kept as simple and pure as possible, centering on three ingredients known for their therapeutic qualities: cocoa, aloe vera and honey. Each product’s info page clearly lists the ingredient list front and center, for absolute transparency.
It’s kind of remarkable, that this is remarkable. You know? It’s so refreshing to immediately know what you’re getting, no sleuthing, no fine print. But really this is the way it should work.
In addition, the ingredients page notes that OrganicaPure sources their main ingredients from “ecological and socially responsible means. We go through a rigorous process of identifying producers and distributors who meet our criteria of our highest standards.”
How’s that for awesomesauce?
So now we know that this is an ethical company using fine, organic ingredients with known compound benefits.
The next question is, is it any good?
The answer is yay! Yes! I tried out the Cocoa & Honey Body Lotion and 100% Body Butter, and they were crazy emollient on my dry, cracked hands (I’ve been doing a fair amount of dog washing lately; don’t ask).
The cocoa body lotion is nice and creamy and just feels like a good lotion— no wax, no filler. Jeff used it on his gross plumber’s hands and gave it his stamp of approval. I’ve been using it regularly after washing dishes and whatnot, and it hasn’t caused my very very hive-prone palms to break out.
The scent is light and non-intrusive. I’m pretty neutral about the scent, to be honest. I don’t love it (I lean towards citrus-y scents) but I’m usually very sensitive about fragrance and it doesn’t bother me at all.
Cocoa is an anti-wrinkle agent: It contains powerful anti-oxidant properties that prevent damage to your skin’s elastin and collagen, restoring and maintaining your youthful glow. It also works to moisturize and nourish your skin. Honey is also a gentle, healthy, natural moisturizer. As a humectant, honey helps your skin retain moisture without an oily buildup. Cocoa and honey work together in this luxurious body lotion to gently replenish moisture.
For my money, though, the organic body butter is where it’s at. This stuff hardens in cooler temps, so I literally am just breaking off tiny shards— like fragments of white chocolate— and letting the heat of my hands melt it so it can be massaged in. I can’t think of a better way to explain the hydrating quality than to say it’s like butter, so there you have it. It’s buttery and luscious and you can feel and see the difference in your hands.
Our 100% Cocoa Butter is just that – with no added emollients, additives and fillers. Extracted from world-renowned Mayan cocoa beans, our butter truly represents Organica Pure’s philosophy to revert skincare to its purest form. For centuries, Mayans used pure cocoa butter to protect their skin. Today, use our fast-absorbing butter to reverse the roughest skin and chapped lips, improve the look of scars and lines, and to smooth stretch marks due to weight loss or pregnancy.
At the rate I’m using it (just a tiny shard nightly before bed), this stuff should last me forever and a day. So it’s good that I actually really like the scent, even though it’s stronger than that of the other lotion. It just smells like straight up chocolate and I could just eat it up.
I smell delicious, people.
One lucky reader is gonna smell as delicious as I do! I get to give away an OrganicaPure prize including the two products I’ve featured, the Cocoa & Honey Body Lotion and 100% Body Butter, PLUS an Aloe Vera & Honey Shampoo, so your noggin can smell as nice as the rest of ya.
Our combination of aloe vera and honey will leave you with healthy, lustrous hair. Aloe vera, a natural treatment for dry skin, will soothe your scalp and help to alleviate dandruff. It also provides a gentle deep cleansing for your hair. Honey, a natural humectant, seals in moisture to heal and condition dry, damaged hair.
