A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of entering a store that was right up my alley – 100% Pure. Located in the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, IL, is a small store that hit me in a big way.
All of the products in the store are 100% pure and natural. It is not very often that I come across products that are 100% natural and consist of ingredients that are pure. However, this place contained products for face, hair, skin, body, babies and nails, as well as fruit dyed makeup.
Stop by one of their locations in California, Washington, and Maryland.
A direct quote from their website, http://www.100percentpure.com/
“100% Pure creates healthy products for our body and also for the environment. Our corporate offices are run by 100% solar energy, our company is 100% electric and our pure, biodegradable formulas are packaged with post consumer recycled plastic, glass, soda cans, paper and printed with biodegradable non toxic vegetable ink. 100% Pure loves animals – we are completely cruelty free and charitable towards animal welfare.”
Check out the site and if they are close by, stop in and see what they have to offer.
It is GREAT to be back. If you know me for real, you know that the last year since March, 2014 has been incredioble with many health issues. However, I am working towards rebuilding the blog and reaching out to you guys with my regular style of posting that will include recipes, travel, parenting, shopping and sustainable living hints and tips.
Looking forward to being back with all of you and I appreciate all of the support that you have given me in this past year.
God bless and Organic Thoughts to You All!!!!!
