Dermatologist Dr. Sylvia Garnis-Jones Launches New Eco-conscious Skincare Line, Puriste
ST. CATHARINES, ON, April 9, 2013 /CNW/ – After nearly two decades
treating skin ailments in Canada, advanced skincare authority,
dermatologist Dr. Sylvia Garnis-Jones, has launched a luxury skincare
range. Inspired by Dr. Garnis-Jones’ career in dermatology, her 54-acre
farm and commitment to help protect the environment, Puriste is a
carefully-crafted collection of 16 revolutionary products that have
clinically proven to transform skin. Housed in recyclable glass
packaging with tree-free, water-free Fibrestone® labels, Puriste is
designed to tighten, smooth, rejuvenate, brighten and clear up skin.
The range targets common problems like acne, acne scarring, aging,
wrinkles, age spots, rosacea, dryness, and sensitivity. At it’s core is
glycolic acid — the ingredient Dr. Garnis-Jones witnessed breathe new
life into the skin of so many patients over the years.
Glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane has
the smallest molecular size in comparison to other AHA’s, which gives
it better capacity to penetrate skin. Puriste’s glycolic acid products
act as multi-action peels by deeply exfoliating, removing several
layers of dead skin cells reducing the appearance of fine lines,
wrinkles, acne, scarring, blotchiness, brown spots, pore size, and sun
damage. Studies have also shown that glycolic acid stimulates natural
collagen production, resulting in measurable improvement in the
appearance of skin firmness.
The exfoliating action of glycolic acid creates an ideal environment for
the plethora of potent natural ingredients found in Puriste’s formulas
to penetrate the fresh skin underneath with vitamin-rich and hydrating
nourishment. “After seeing the amazing results glycolic acid produced
in my patient’s skin time and time again, it was my aim to make these
same proven benefits available to people everywhere,” explains Dr.
Sylvia Garnis-Jones, Puriste founder and dermatologist.
Just as important as what is found in Puriste products is what is not.
All Puriste products are without any phthalates, sulfates,
petroleum-based products, silicones, synthetic fragrances, GMO,
animal/dairy derived products, or artificial coloring. Additionally,
this earth-conscious skin care line is gluten-free, cruelty-free and
uses green packaging practices. Dr. Garnis-Jones made her commitment to
green pactices clear when she stated “as a dermatologist I feel great
responsibility to save people’s skin, but as a human being living on
this beautiful planet, I feel an even greater responsibility to save
our Earth.” That is why every Puriste product is packaged with
recyclable glass containers, 100% recycled hang-tags, and tree-free,
water-free FiberStone® labels.
A truly revolutionary Earth-saving solution, “FiberStone® Natural Stone
Paper is made from 80% Calcium Carbonate (CaCO) with a small quantity
(20%) of non-toxic resin (HDPE- High Density Polyethylene). The Calcium
Carbonate comes from limestone collected as waste material from
existing quarries for the construction industry. It is made with a
clean production process which does not utilize water or emit toxic
air. Additionally, its production causes no air pollution, has a very
low carbon footprint and uses no bleaching chemicals.” as stated on the
Fibrestone® website at www.GetFiberstone.com.
The entire Puriste range is available online at www.PuristeCare.com. These products, available now, include Cleansers, Toners, Exfoliators,
Moisturizers, and Eye Treatments ranging from $30-$75.
