Purestuf Packaging Options – Jar or Bottle with Pump or Flip Top – Your Choice

One of the delightful things about custom making our products is that not only can we make products to suit each clients special requests, we can also package all our products in different ways.

Although our website shows products supplied in various containers we can adapt each product to any of our 3 package options.
For example Pure One is shown in a bottle with a pump.

However we have offered the option to supply Pure One and some other products like Mermaid with a flip top for some years now.

Interestingly, in the last year or so, some clients have asked for Pure One to be supplied in a “Jar” with a screw top just like many of our Goddess face products

If you have a preference to have any Purestuf Product packaged in a different way to the way it is displayed on the website, just note it on your order, email Chrissy at [email protected] or call her on 0402 791 273

Acne Treatment Products Made with Love by Purestuf

Acne Treatment Products complement the wide range of anti aging products made with love by Chrissy Birdsall under the name, Purestuf Natural Skincare, in her Bowral Studio.

chrissy birdsall purestuf natural skin care acneChrissy has found throughout her many years of using beauty products, that no matter what your skin condition, the most effective products are ones, which are based on nature and which use the best natural and organic ingredients. This applies especially for specific skin conditions like acne.

For most people the problems of teenage acne will disappear as they get older, but this is not always the case. There are large numbers of adults who suffer from acne, and this can be very distressing to live with.

Natural acne treatment products and creams work by removing the stickiness in the cell that causes the discarded cells to remain trapped. By allowing those cells to be freely exfoliated there is no build up of sebum and a reduction in the incidence of bacteria build up.

Essential Oils have been shown to be valuable anti aging agents as they act as inhibitors to the breakdown of your skin elastin and collagen.

Baby Boomers, Anti Aging and Natural Skin Care Products

One of the big topics for the generation known as the “baby boomers” is anti aging.

People born in the Post World War 2 period (between 1946 and 1964) won’t retire at a fixed age, the way previous generations have done. Due to significant improvements in health care and healthier living styles baby boomers will retire fully at much later ages, even if they retire from their main occupations at similar and sometimes earlier ages than their parents, as they will continue to be very active members of both the workplace and volunteer organisations.anti aging

They are generally conscious of living a healthy lifestyle, eating high quality or organic foods, and using natural skin care products.
