Life can be scary. It seems like so many of my favorite skin care products contain dangerous chemicals that cause cancer. Life can also be BEAUTIFUL. You can rest assured that clean beauty companies, such as Borbón Skincare create safe products that we can enjoy without the worry!
Borbón Skincare is a female-owned start up company that offers hand-crafted (small batch) non-carcinogenic formulations inspired by our grandmothers to create a premium integrative beauty & wellness brand.
From the creator of Borbón- Carmen Milagro:
"At Borbón, I created clean skin care designed to nurture our skin & honor our bodies. After losing, my mother to cancer, I advocate & create products developed with only the highest quality ingredients. Our formulas are not only natural, organic and sustainable but will never contain harmful synthetics or known cancer-causing agents. All of our products are formulated with ingredients found only in the garden or a kitchen pantry. Currently, we have the support of (3) doctors who believe in our Soothing Herbal Massage Serum - a PhD, an MD and a DC. We're also leveraging our newest collaborative partnership with Healx Nutrition, which has a distribution network of hundreds of doctors' offices. We fiercely believe in our mission because our Cancer Warriors believe in us!"
I was given the chance to review Borbón Skin Care's Soothing Herbal Massage Serum. The first thing I noticed was the pretty little bottle that the serum comes in. When I opened it to take in the fragrance, I was soon enveloped by the scent of the rose- one of my favorite fragrances, so pure and beautiful. It was if I was actually smelling a fresh cut rose.
My lower back was aching after sitting in the car after our two-hour care trip to the beach this past weekend. When we arrived home, I undressed and my sweet husband applied the convenient roll-on serum onto my lower back. He has strong hands, yet they work magic. This miraculous serum seemed to sink right into my skin, and as my husband massaged me, I could literally feel it working. My strained, knotted up back muscles started to feel so much better within minutes.
I am learning so much about the health benefits of hemp infused products. There is definitely an anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxing effect, in addition to nourishing my skin. This Hemp CBD oil-infused Soothing Herbal Massage Serum gives me the best of both worlds.

PUR ATTITUDE™ SUPPORTS NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION, INC. in 2018
Today, PUR attitude announced that it will donate $25 of for each Wild Durian Fruit Peel sold during the Month of October to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF). NBCF is an organization dedicated as much to the prevention of the disease, as it is to the cure, and holds excellent ratings with independent charity reviewers. PUR attitude chose to work with NBCF due to its alignment with PUR attitude’s own core mission to carry out responsible industry practices by providing carcinogen-free skincare.
“While PUR attitude is a clean beauty brand that focuses on healthy beauty science, October is a month to celebrate pink and everything that color has come to represent in the fight against breast cancer,” said PUR attitude Founder David Pollock. “Our delicately pink Wild Durian Fruit Peel will be a part of giving back to the cause this month.”
Wild Durian Fruit Peel is clinically proven to visibly even out skin tones, wipe away fine lines, and restore vitality and brightness for more youthful looking skin. Due to the activation of rare wild durian fruit, known for its pungent aroma and revered for its advanced anti-aging properties, this product is able to produce these powerful results on the skin without irritation. Wild Durian Fruit Peel is enhanced with the power of natural Hyaluronix™ technology, which delivers up to one thousand times its weight in water, binding moisture deeply into the skin. These natural ingredients are combined with pure glucosamine, ceramides, as well as extracts of orange, apple, and green tea to detoxify impurities, exfoliate lifeless skin, and unclog pores.
Each product in the PUR attitude line is dermatologist tested and approved, backed by independent clinical studies, and follows the brand’s philosophy of “Safe Beauty,” avoiding harsh chemicals and known carcinogens, parabens, PEG’s, glycols, sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes.
I have been using Wild Durian Fruit Peel for over a week now. I apply it all over my face and neck after cleansing in the evening, and I let it dry, followed by my favorite night cream. I love it because it seems to keep my skin nice and supple, plus it has a great firming effect.

About PUR attitude
Based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., PUR attitude products contain only safe beauty ingredients and are not diluted with water. More than 1,300 chemicals have been banned from the company’s lab, which adheres to strict EU standards. All formulations for the brand were developed by David Pollock, a beauty innovation chemist with more than 20 years of experience formulating products for some of the most recognized names in the industry.
PUR ATTITUDE™ LAUNCHES ADVANCED CELL RENEWAL NIGHT CRÈME
An Overnight Skincare Product with Natural Polymer Time-Released Technology, Bio-Advanced Peptides and Fermented Oil
PUR attitude™ announced the release of Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème, a high-performance anti-aging cream that delivers key ingredients into the skin overnight via a natural polymer time-released technology. The cream also leverages bio-advanced peptides that oxygenate the skin and promote cell renewal, and fermented oil to improve youthful suppleness of the skin.
“The beauty of the PUR attitude brand is that we can deliver such advanced technology using safe ingredients,” said Jerry Rayman, President of PUR attitude. “The science behind anti-aging skincare is developing at a rapid rate. The products have better performance than ever before. PUR attitude is delighted to deliver yet another high-performing product to the marketplace.”
Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème is enhanced with the power of natural Hyaluronix™ technology, which delivers up to one thousand times its weight in water, binding moisture deeply into the skin. This night cream uses a complex of three different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid—combined with glucosamine and ceramides—to create a delivery system that encapsulates and time-releases key ingredients deep within the lower layers of the skin. The cream also delivers a bio-advanced peptide technology along with Acetyle Hexapeptide-3, which has been proven to help reduce the signs of aging.
While the health benefits of eating fermented, probiotic foods are widely accepted in the food industry at this time, their use in skin care is relatively new. Fermenting natural oils restructures complex molecules, transforming them into tiny “superfoods” for the skin, providing faster absorption that results in healthier, younger-looking skin. Advanced Cell Renewal Night Cr ème uses a fermented olive oil for superior performance.
Each product in the PUR attitude line is dermatologist tested and approved, backed by independent clinical studies, and follows the brand’s standards for “Safe Beauty,” avoiding harsh chemicals, parabens, PEG’s, glycols, sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes.
Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème is available in 1 fl oz at a retail price of $59. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used once daily).
My thoughts: I received a full-sized jar of Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème to review. I apply it every night after I wash my face, before going to bed. The creme goes on smoothly and is absorbed completely by my dry skin. I love the lightweight feel of this product. It is rich and luxurious, but never sits heavily on my skin, and never leaves a residue or a shine. I apply it on my forehead, face, neck and decolletage right before bed. (I also appreciate that it doesn't have a strong fragrance.)
Each morning after using my Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème the night before, my skin looks firmer, especially around my jaw line, and my neck. My skin looks very youthful, and I am often told that I look to young to have a grand baby! That is always nice to hear.
