Since 1997, I have been researching, developing and creating Fresh & Natural personal care products, with Pure & Simple ingredients, for discerning clients and select spas.

My joy for creating natural skin care products with Pure & Simple (Purple) ingredients stems from a deep appreciation for nature, essential oils and the science of aromatherapy. My goal is to provide a way for my family and yours, to reduce and limit day-to-day exposure to harsh and harmful chemicals.

My Story:

My love for natural ingredients goes back to my childhood years in Montreal, where spending time with my loving Grandmother was a blissful space in time. She taught me all about "Fresh being Best" and "Natural being a way to Nurture with Nature". These messages stayed with me.

Teen years were a discovery time of experimenting with beautifying concoctions. My egg white face mask, was a big hit!  While the honey and mayonnaise hair mask was more than challenging to remove. This is around the time that I started to understand the concept of Pure & Simple.

In adulthood, my sensitive and reactive skin influenced me to incorporate more natural ingredients and products into my day-to-day life. As a result, I blossomed into a proficient beauty & wellness connoisseur.

When I became a mother, and my precious children showed signs of sensitive skin reactions, I turned into a very keen and motivated "label reader". Realizing that many of my family's favourite, personal care brands were made up of questionable and potentially toxic ingredients, I decided to get educated and take action. It was very important to me to learn how the skin and body systems worked along with natural herbs and essential oils.

Formal studies and certifications followed, in; aromatherapy, aesthetics, herbology and reflexology. With this training, I began a Health and Wellness practice dedicated to helping others, using natural therapies. Working with my clients, addressing struggles and issues similar to my own, highlighted a need for Pure and Simple - Fresh & Natural, personal care products ... my resolve to create, and produce, a line of such products was born.

Over the years, my repetoire of products has grown significantly. Developing natural skin care recipes from scratch, researching ingredients and how they would work together to provide desired effects for areas of the body, my first creations addressed Face (Orange and Rosemary Cleanser, Cleansing Grains and Intensive Rejuvenating Serum (which is still the best selling product in our line)) and Body care (Whipped Body Creme). With overwhelmingly positive reviews, I was encouraged to add Bathing products, Soaps and Aromatherapy Soy Wax Candles, before finally evolving our collection into the natural skin care product list I am proud to offer on this site.

With Purple Essentials you can have it all… Fresh & Natural products, made with Pure & Simple ingredients that will help to:

  • Balance, nourish and protect your skin
  • Rejuvenate your senses
  • Enhance your natural beauty and wellbeing
  • Reduce and limit exposure to a myriad of toxic chemicals
  • Lessen your carbon footprint on our environment


20+ years later, I am still loving my work and the journey ...
I look forward to the opportunity of sharing my Purple passion with you.


Warmly,             
Christine
