You might be tempted to skip the extra step of applying primer before foundation, but it’s actually an important part of your beauty routine. Primers help to smooth out the surface of your skin, readying it for foundation and even helping makeup stay in place longer.
While hydration isn’t always a part of a normal primer, 100% Pure doubles down on skin-nourishing ingredients. Natural moisturizers in this primer include seaweed, green tea, and aloe. This formula also helps fill fine lines, so your skin will appear more youthful after applying foundation
As a bonus: in case you’re acne-prone, eucalyptus and tea tree oils are also included in the primer to help fight and prevent breakouts.
Apply evenly to clean or moisturized skin. Allow to set for 90 seconds. Follow with your makeup application.

It’s no secret that cosmetics are often filled with toxic chemicals. When applied to the skin every single day, these toxins can make their way into the bloodstream and wreak havoc on your health — especially your endocrine system.
Specifically, research shows that a class of chemicals called phthalates can increase your chances of cancer, cause infertility and other reproductive problems, and result in birth defects if you use them while pregnant.
Face primers, in particular, are likely to contain siloxanes. These artificial, silicon-based ingredients are often used in skincare products like moisturizers and lotions to soften the skin. Unfortunately, siloxanes are known endocrine disruptors and can even damage the liver.
Fortunately, 100% Pure’s primer is free of all toxins, and uses only natural ingredients to achieve smooth, hydrated skin underneath your foundation.
