How it began:
On a chance meeting in Asheville, NC, Kathryn and Samuel had a synchronistic encounter; one that would result in a revolutionary skincare concept. By bringing together the healing powers of gemstones with organic holistic skincare and active botanicals, Pure Approach Skincare was created! With a shared mission to remove toxic and harmful ingredients and to be the change they wanted to see in the skincare industry, Kathryn and Samuel set out to transform the way skincare is viewed and understood. Pure Approach is for anyone who is concerned about the safety and quality of skincare ingredients, environmental impact, and conscious, ethical business practices.
More than just skincare, Pure Approach is a mindset. Together, we're creating a better way to nourish and love your skin!
