Purodoré Natural Skincare

Why skincare ingredients are important?

At Purodore, the ingredients drive our product innovation. We strive to be as bold and transparent as possible with our products and their ingredients. Nothing about our products is a mystery. We’re proud of what we offer.

Instead of overloading your skin with filler ingredients, we’re using only what we need. Each of our ingredients is highly effective and doesn’t need to be supplemented with fillers or emulsifiers. We don’t use artificial colourants or preservatives either. Simply take a look at our ingredient lists and this page to get a closer look at ALL the ingredients that make our skincare products so exceptionally unique. 

Oh yes, we've also explained each of those complex and weird sounding ones on this page to make sure you know exactly what you're applying on your skin.

Purodoré ingredients - Gold

Gold 
We’ve added a drop of gold to each of our skincare products for a very good reason. This precious element has the power to turn back the clock and leave your skin glowing from the inside out. It not only slows down the depletion of collagen, but also activates the base cells of the skin and thus increases elasticity. This in turn reduces fine lines, liver spots, and enlarged skin pores.

Fermentation breaks down the molecular composition of cosmetic raw materials into an easily absorbed form, allowing them to moisturize and nourish the skin more effectively. This is why the gold used in Purodore products goes through the fermentation process before it's added to the products.

Purodoré ingredients - Silk

Silk
Silk has long been recognised as one of the most luxurious fabrics, and now we’re using it to create world-class skincare products. Our products use silk proteins to not only improve the elasticity of your skin, but also return its youthful glow by supporting the production of much-needed collagen. 

Silk has its own amino acid suitable for health and beauty, referred to as silk collagen. Silk collagen prevents formation of wrinkles and softens existing wrinkles. Silk has the ability to activate hyaluronic acid in the skin.

Purodoré ingredients - Champagne

Champagne 
Not just a bubbly drink, champagne can be used to deeply heal and regenerate your skin. This is due to its ability to combat the free radicals that cause breakouts and blemishes. Because champagne is rich in antioxidants, it works as a powerful yet gentle way to reverse the damage done by the sun, the environment, and harsh skincare products. 

The fruit acid compound contained in champagne extract actively regenerates skin cells, effectively protects against antioxidants and restores the skin's moisture balance.

Purodoré ingredients - Rose

That’s exactly why we’ve added this effective ingredient to our range of products.

Purodoré ingredients - Rosehip Seed

Rosehip Seed
Rosehip seed oil is rich in linoleic acid and Vitamin A. These compounds are sensitive to heat, so a cold pressed extraction is necessary to preserve their benefits.

Purodoré Ingredients - Shea Oil (Butyrospermum Parkii))

Purodoré Ingredients - Aconitifolia Seed Extract

Aconitifolia Seed Extract
Aconitifolia seeds are part of the legume family and grow into what we know as the moth or mat bean. It is a natural alternative to retinol in herbal medicine. It energizes tired and dull skin by fading pigment changes, as well as by enhancing cell regeneration and collagen production. This results in a brighter, firmer, and more nourished skin.

This ingredient is a 100% natural alternative to the vitamin A derivative retinol. Studies prove mat bean is a comparable replacement to synthetic retinol, without the unpleasant side effects of irritation, sun sensitivity, and dryness. Unlike Bakuchiol (another natural alternative to retinol), mat bean has been clinically researched and tested.

Purodoré Ingredients - Hydrolysed RNA and Hydrolysed DNA

Hydrolysed RNA and Hydrolysed DNA
Nucleic acids (that’s the NA in DNA, FYI) are a part of every single living organism! They’re the genetic building blocks of your cells and, when considered as repeating units, they’re known as nucleotides. These nucleotides are made up of pentose sugar, a phosphate group, and a nitrogenous base. While this might sound like rocket science to some, the true science behind these substances is simple. They’re what keep your skin moisturised, healthy, and able to regenerate cells every single second.

Purodoré Ingredients - Lecithin & Micrococcus Lysate

Lecithin & Micrococcus Lysate
Lysate is a liposome, a substance found in cells that is very similar to human cells! Numerous scientific studies and tests prove the unique effect of liposomes. They increase the skin's moisture content, transport corrective ingredients such as vitamins to the skin's structures, and prevent the formation of impurities with the help of polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Purodoré Ingredients - Hexapeptide-11

Hexapeptide-11
Protein is one of the most important building blocks of healthy skin cells. Peptides are small portions of amino acids made from proteins that were found in several studies to revitalize the building blocks of the skin's own proteins and help maintain skin elasticity. Hexapeptide-11 has been shown to enhance the skin's natural ability to produce collagen as well as elastin. Collagen and elastin make the skin elastic, supple and smooth.

Purodoré Ingredients - A Highly Effective Amino Acid Compound

A Highly Effective Amino Acid Compound 

Amino acids play an important role in maintaining your overall health and beautiful skin. Without the right amino acids in your skin, the proteins that make up your cells won’t be able to effectively heal or regenerate your skin cells. This means that your skin will soon look dull, dry, and aged. We use an amino acid compound that is made up of Sodium Citrate, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, PCA, Glycine, Alanine, Serine, Valine, Proline, Threonine, Isoleucine, Histidine, and Phenylalanine.

Arginine is known to provide antioxidant properties and help maintain collagen production. Aspartic acid in arginine helps the skin to activate and keep cell production going.

PCA evens out the colour and surface of the skin, as well as provides moisturizing and firming properties to the skin. 

Glycine supports collagen production and helps the skin repair damaged tissue.

Alanine is known to improve the skin’s moisture balance while boosting metabolism and reducing transepidermal dryness.

Serine is often seen in skin care. Serine/threonine kinases are capable of attaching phosphate groups to the serines and/or threonines of other proteins, thereby affecting their activity.

Valine works synergistically with the skin. Valine nourishes, increases moisture, and strengthens the skin.

Proline strengthens the skin and increases the skin's defence mechanism.

Threonine helps create glycine and serine in the skin. These two amino acids are needed to produce collagen and elastin.

Isoleucine provides skin repair benefits to reduce fine lines as well as create more supple skin.

Histidine repairs skin damage even at the cellular level.

Phenylalanine reduces pigmentation and balances skin tone.

When combined, these amino acids have the power to increase collagen production and leave your skin looking and feeling like its glowing from the inside out. It balances your skin’s moisture levels in a gentle, soothing way that repairs damage, increases cell regeneration, and strengthens your skin against sun and aging damage.

Purodoré Ingredients - Olive Squalene

Cetearyl Olivate (&) Sorbitan Olivate

This ingredient is a PEG-free multifunctional emulsifier which is derived mainly from olive oil and therefore biodegradable. It is also approved by COSMOS. Cetearyl Olivate (and) Sorbitan Olivate is a complex combination of fatty acids. Chemically, it is similar to the lipid composition of the skin surface. It has the ability to create liquid crystal structures that mimic the outermost layer of the skin. As the sole emulsifier in our products, this compound provides a deep moisturizing effect.

Purodoré Ingredients - Xanthan Gum

Xanthan Gum
With so many different, all-natural skincare ingredients, we needed a way to keep it all together without irritating or harming your skin. That’s why we chose Xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is a natural product of microorganisms that helps thicken cosmetic products for easier and more effective application. This thickening compound is what gives our skincare products their velvety smooth texture. 

Purodoré Ingredients - Lactic Acid

Lactic Acid 
Lactic acid naturally occurs in the body – so you might be surprised by how it can affect your skin. When used in combination with our other effective ingredients, it has the power to even out your skin tone, get rid of dark spots and age marks, reduce acne scars, and smooth out any fine lines. It also carefully exfoliates and moisturises your skin. 

Purodoré Ingredients - Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Benzoic Acid, Propanediol

Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Benzoic Acid

Purodoré Ingredients - Glycerol

Glycerol 
Glycerol is a strong moisture-binding substance that protects and renews the skin's own protective functions. In this way, it effectively improves the elasticity of the skin. When used together with surfactant products (e.g. in cleansers), glycerol also reduces skin irritation and damage. 

Propanediol 
Propanediol is an anti-microbial and deeply moisturising substance that helps heal your skin from the inside out by keeping it clean and hydrated at all times.
