Marie Carrasquedo explains how LE PURE is redefining organic skincare

Marie Carrasquedo is the creator of LE PURE’s formulas. She has spent the past 40 years studying plants and their beneficial ingredients. Thanks to her extensive experience in formulation, she has created unique formulas that support the skin’s natural functions and do not include any unnecessary additives.

During our event in collaboration with Cortana, Marie gave a speech on the origin of our brand, its values and its mission. She explained about how LE PURE improves the well being of the individual, but also of the community at large: “We care about skincare, but also about the protection of the environment. Our holistic approach implies that people’s health cannot be in contrast with nature. Our products are designed to avoid any negative impact on the environment.”

Marie’s words highlighted that “every day our skin suffers from external factors, such as air, water and food pollution. However, we cannot blame only the environment, we are responsible too.

The concept behind LE PURE is based on three main pillars: purifying, nourishing and repairing only with 100% of natural and active ingredients.

How do we know, if the product and its ingredients are beneficial?

Marie explained how to find out: “There is a very easy way to know, if you are using the a natural product: read the ingredients! If you want to know, if a product uses natural and plant ingredients, check for ingredients in Latin on the label: in fact, while ingredients made or manipulated in the laboratory use English names, plants are designated by their scientific Latin name. Therefore, the more Latin, the more natural ingredients are in the product.”

A last consideration: nature is our master. We have to learn from nature and live in harmony with it.

The speech is in Spanish language only.

The evening’s happenings were immortalized thanks to photographer Isabella Antonelli and Anna de Codorníu was the delicious cava of the evening.

Beauty is…

For me beauty is the combination of health and happiness. This means that people can be beautiful at any age. My grandmother was 97 years old, when I took this picture. Her joy of life shines through her eyes and her smile. This beauty is somehow ageless.

Taking care of your body as well as your emotions will bring you health and inner peace. Using products and foods that potentiate the natural regeneration and healing functions of your body, will bring out your natural radiance and beauty. Healthy skin looks youthful and radiant at any age.
