So Pure

Handmade In Oxfordshire

As we become more selective when it comes to choosing skin care products, trying to avoid the unexpected ‘nasty’ ingredients contained therein, finding a range of products which are as the name tells us ‘So Pure’ can be a great find. When those products are made with love and care using only quality natural ingredients by a local artisan and they are affordable too, like me, you may want to know more.
