New Design of our single-dose Sachets

We have recently changed the design of our single-dose sachets to make them more environmentally friendly and more suitable for our organic products. Previously the sachets were black with golden letters and a lot of black ink had to be used to create this design.

In a sachet the ink is very close to the product and the scent of the ink can mix with the natural scent of the contents. Therefore we have chosen a material that already comes in white and needs only a little bit of ink to print. We are now gradually changing the sachets of all products to the new design. INSTANT LIBERATION is the first product that we are launching with the new design.

Allies for Allergy Season

In spring and summer many people are suffering from allergies and the skin and eyes become irritated. For our products we have selected a range of plants and ingredients that have strong calming properties, so therefore they are also indicated for allergy affected eyes and skin.

The plants in VELVET HYDRATION calm swollen or irritated eyelids. Very often pollen allergies can also lead to eczemas in the face and result in dry and peeling skin. In that case we recommend to use VELVET HYDRATION combined with the balm SMOOTH ADDICTION during the day. At night we recommend VELVET HYDRATION along with our elixir and balancing face oil.

LUDWIG BECK on Marienplatz

Leader in niche and organic skincare in Germany

We are excited that our LE PURE certified organic skincare line is now available at the prestigious LUDWIG BECK store in Munich. LUDWIG BECK is not only an extraordinary store, it can look back at a long and successful history.

It all started when young button maker and dress trimmer Ludwig Beck opened a workshop in 1861. Starting with only a few workers Ludwig Beck managed to expand his business steadily and even King Ludwig II of Bavaria was one of his customers. The company remained in the Beck family until 1938 when it was sold to Gustl Feldmeier who led LUDWIG BECK through the next decades. Gustl Feldmeier not only expanded the store he also created the famous flagship store on Marienplatz in Munich. The department store is located in the heart of Munich and has become an indispensable part of the cityscape of Munich.

Neroli PB

Neroli Essential Oil – the Bitter Orange Flower

In all our products we use the essential oil Neroli, which is obtained from the flower of the bitter orange tree. It is one of the most expensive essential oils on the market and has a very delicate perfume, which helps to calm the nervous system. In combination with the essential oil of roses, these two luxury ingredients determine the delicate scent of all our LE PURE products. When you apply our products, close your eyes for a second and transport yourself to a place like the Alhambra in Spain, where you walk among orange trees and get seduced by their sweet perfume that lingers in the warm wind.

 

How to apply our products

In this video we show you how to clean and nourish your skin in 1 step. The quantity as well as the way you touch your skin is crucial for optimal results.

The Cactus

A cactus is a member of the plant family Cactaceae within the order Caryophyllales. The word “cactus” derives, through Latin, from the Ancient Greek κάκτος (kaktos), a name originally used for a spiny plant whose identity is not certain. Prickly pears typically grow with flat, rounded cladodes (also called platyclades) armed with two kinds of spines; large, smooth, fixed spines and small, hairlike prickles called glochids, that easily penetrate skin and detach from the plant. Many types of prickly pears grow into dense, tangled structures. Cacti are native to the Americas, ranging from Patagonia in the south to parts of western Canada in the north—except for Rhipsalis baccifera, which also grows in Africa and Sri Lanka.

According to Wikipedia, when Carl Linnaeus published Species Plantarum in 1753 – the starting point for modern botanical nomenclature – he placed all the species of cactus known to him in one genus, Cactus. In 1754, the Scottish botanist Philip Miller divided cacti into several genera, including Opuntia. He distinguished the genus largely on the form of its flowers and fruits.
