SIMPURE’s Guide to Clean Skincare Routines
At SIMPURE, we only use clean, cruelty free, vegan, and fair trade ingredients and packaging. But what does all of that even mean?
Common Labels and What They Mean
Fair trade: As a system, fair trade certifies that a set of expectations are reached in the production and supply of an ingredient or product. For employees, fair trade includes workers’ rights, fair pay, and safe working conditions. And for you, our shoppers, fair trade means ethically produced and high quality products.
Vegan and Cruelty Free: For skincare to qualify as vegan, it must be created without ingredients derived from animals, by-products included. Cruelty-free means ingredients are not tested on animals, but can contain ingredients such as milk or honey, declassifying it as vegan.
Clean: Clean beauty means that the product is non-toxic, safe to use, and is transparent with ingredients right on the label. A product could be green, organic, or natural, but could still contain toxic ingredients.

For Oily Skin
*AHA (alpha hydroxy acid)are derived naturally from plant extracts and we use this in our products to help combat oily, troubled skin. AHA should be used with caution and patch tested before applying to entire face if you have sensitive skin*.
Your new routine for oily skin from SIMPURE would look great with an AHA Facial Cleanser ($30) or our Face Wash with Salicylic Acid ($30) better for sensitive skin, an AHA Facial Toner ($24) or Rose Toner for sensitive skin ($24), and Squalane Oil derived from Olives ($29). You will start with your Cleansing Mitt (comes included with every cleanser), apply 2 pumps or a blueberry sized amount, then with warm water apply to your face AND neck (don’t forget!), then rinse with cold water to tighten your pores. Grab a cotton round and shake your AHA Toner then spray 2-3 times onto your round and remove all the excess oil and grime that may remain. Do not rinse, grab your Squalane and apply a few drops to your face and neck. Because it mimics our skin’s natural oil, Squalane has an array of benefits including hydration, minimizing the appearance of fine lines, soothing temporary redness, and controlling oil. Lastly, apply SPF ($26).
You could also add in an AHA Body Wash ($14) if you experience bumps or irritation on your back and/or shoulders.
For under $100, this is an amazing routine to help combat oil while keeping your skin hydrated and brightened. If we could recommend one product to add, it would be our Marine Algae Mask for extra purification and clarification ($45).
For Dry Skin
For dry skin, we’re going to start with our Mud Facial Cleanser ($30). Using your included Cleansing Mitt, apply 2 pumps or a blueberry sized amount, then with warm water apply to your face AND neck (don’t forget!), then rinse with cold water to tighten your pores. Grab a cotton round and shake your Vitamin C Toner ($24) then spray 2-3 times onto your round and remove all the excess oil and grime that may remain. Do not rinse, grab your B3 + HA Facial Serum ($29/$69), one pump will go a LONG way. Pat into your skin as opposed to rubbing. Finish up with your Vitamin C Moisturizer ($24/$49), a pump or 2 of this will be more than enough! Finally, apply SPF ($26).
You can add our Pumpkin Enzyme Mask ($30) for an extra oomph! This mask is dermatological grade and you can tell. It smells like a Thanksgiving pie, intensely tingles for about 45 seconds-1 minute, then it stops and feels amazing. Use your included silicone spatula to apply to avoid spreading bacteria, wear it from anywhere between 3-10 minutes. You will see amazing results after just one use. Try out a test patch before applying to your entire face.
Another amazing recommendation for dry skin is our Tranquility Body Cream ($16). With the amazing tropical citrus scent and a subtle warm finish. We also carry an unscented version for those with sensitive skin!
For Combination Skin
For combo skin, we are going to start with our Cream Facial Cleanser ($30). Using your included Cleansing Mitt, apply 2 pumps or a blueberry sized amount, then with warm water apply to your face AND neck (don’t forget!), then rinse with cold water to tighten your pores. Grab a cotton round and shake your Rose Toner ($24) then spray 2-3 times onto your round and remove all the excess oil and grime that may remain. Do not rinse, add 1 pump of our Eye Cream ($45) under your eyes and finish with a pea-sized amount of our Facial Cream ($55) to your face and neck. To end the routine, apply SPF ($26).
You can add in our Liquid Gold Facial Oil ($34/$79) which is amazing for dark spots, scars, sunspots, and leaves a beautiful glow to your skin. A drop or 2 of this will go far.
Another amazing product is our Smooth and Silky Argireline Facial Serum ($45) which makes your skin feel hydrated, and lines look smoother, with a boost of peptides and amino acids.
