What’s the hype about ‘non-toxic’ skincare?
I chose to slowly transition, since I wanted to learn and stay curious as I shifted into more clean routines. And as I listened to all that ‘hype’ about clean beauty, and how to care for our skin (the largest organ we’ve got!) I knew I wanted to start there. There was something about my new skin conditions that I knew could be a good way to see if I could not only heal my body from the inside out, but also the outside in.
The label on Primally Pure’s products was in and of itself a revelation. Being able to recognize everything that was in my jar of moisturizer and deodorant? Incredible. Just a few ingredients listed? Awesome. Instead of applying what can be actually toxic to the human body (i.e. common ingredients in conventional skincare products), clean skincare means you’re applying ingredients that support the human body. That fuel it, heal it, nourish it, and give back to it. That’s enough to hype me up! If you want a deeper look into what “clean” really means to me, here is a more personal peek.
I’m a clean skincare convert! Here’s how I did it:
To be frank, I was worried that clean skincare products would feel good going on and then— do nothing. While I knew the chemicals were toxic, I was worried they’d be the only effective solution at the end of the day. And I’m sure glad I was wrong about that! The proof is in the pudding. I documented my journey of using Primally Pure from the beginning and watched as my melasma healed, my glow came back (and was brighter than ever), and my texture softened. I was absolutely, literally amazed.
How to start the switch to all-natural skincare:
I love Primally Pure because I actually enjoy my little skincare routine and I get to keep my product line-up simple and low-key! The easiest way to get it all done in a few steps is to start with the Primally Pure Skin Game Strong pack, built from my faves, which is all you need for a full skincare routine.
Plus, I love that Primally Pure puts so much energy into making amazing products that you’re not overwhelmed with options.
I’ve spent the last few years telling everyone and anyone I know about Primally Pure, especially the friends that saw my skin slowly change and heal. When something actually works, feels this good, and is totally clean and non-toxic, how do you keep that kind of goodness to yourself? So, I can tell you this for sure: no one ever goes wrong with anything they get from Primally Pure. My family members all have their own favorite products, and I’ll always go to bat for the Primally Pure non-toxic charcoal deodorant! That stuff is incredible.
I am happily a converted skeptic when it comes to clean skincare, and it’s all thanks to the power of Primally Pure. They’re an amazing company that is dedicated to creating products that you feel so good reaching for every single day. If you’re curious about making the switch, Primally Pure is all you need. It’s like a little “you’re welcome and I love you” to your body and skin every time you open that bathroom cabinet.
Answers to your top Primally Pure questions:
Which skin-specific products are right for my skin type?
It can be hard to swap out products! Knowing which products will support your skin and your needs can feel daunting. Primally Pure has three distinct formulations designed to offer unique, targeted benefits for your skin state. If you aren’t sure which products are best for you, worry not! You can take this super fun and quick quiz to get the right routine designed with your skin in mind!
I have oily skin and feel nervous about using these oil-based products. Will this work for me?
Conventional cleansers, soaps and scrubs are actually loaded with ingredients that can worsen sensitive skin conditions, cause premature aging and aggravate acne. While certain oils may not beneficial for your skin type, several actually are! I love, love, love the Primally Pure Oil Cleansers. The combination of these oils help to restore balance and strengthen the skin barrier, without disrupting your skin’s pH levels. We’ve been blending oils for years to find your skin’s sweet spot, so you can finally kiss your oil-blotting sheets goodbye.
There can be an adjustment period, which may take some time to work through. Deep cleansing takes time and patience as all the built-up dirt, grime and residue is swept out of the pores to reveal the skin’s natural beauty.

Are Primally Pure’s all-natural deodorants truly effective?
The education behind WHY nontoxic is important outweighs certain detox results such as sweat + smell, which typically subside. Primally’s deodorant formula protects against odor pretty darn well. With smell, this WILL get better. Much better. And if it doesn’t, it may be time to consider making some dietary changes and eliminate processed food. Regular exercise can also help the body to detox and minimize BO!
It’s also important to remember that sweat is a HEALTHY and NORMAL part of being human! And since this product doesn’t contain any of the toxic chemicals found in conventional deodorants, it won’t interfere with your body’s natural and necessary detoxification process (also known as sweating).
Can I use these clean beauty products on my kids?
Primally Pure ONLY uses natural ingredients which are kid-safe, however, you should always consult with your child’s healthcare provider if you have any concerns! For infants, they recommend sticking to their line of super gentle baby products which are formulated without essential oils. A few of my faves for Coco and Quinn are the baby balm, baby bar, and powder which is talc-free and helps keep their skin dry and rash-free.
I don’t even know where to begin with crafting a clean skincare routine…
Overtime (okay, and as I get older), I’ve upgraded my skincare products, habits and routine. I now even subscribe to the notion that there’s a particular order to apply your skincare routine. You can read more about my exact method and the order in which I apply my skincare routine right here!
Okay, but how much is this going to cost me?
I know what you might be thinking next…”can I actually afford to make the switch to organic skincare products?” I want to be super transparent that my skin transformation has *not* been an overnight success. Primally Pure has been the BIGGEST game-changer on my skin journey and their products won’t break the bank. They range in price from $20-$52 and even better? You can save 10% on each and every order when you use my code JK10.
Clean beauty doesn’t have to be complicated (or time consuming).
I’m the queen of simple. I don’t want a 15 step, 30-minute skincare routine (I’ll leave that for the rare spa visit). I want to be able to step up to my bathroom counter in the morning and get my skin prepped for the day in just a few minutes. Let’s be honest, a few minutes is all I get with two busy kids.
With Primally Pure, I get all the power of a major skincare routine sesh with just a few products that take me less than 5 minutes from start to finish. Often, it’s a quick spritz and I’m on my way. I encourage you to step into this process and absolutely make it yours. Living and feeling clean is a definition that is absolutely up to YOU to write.
