Dermatologist Dr. Sylvia Garnis-Jones Launches New Eco-conscious Skincare Line, Puriste

ST. CATHARINES, ON, April 9, 2013 /CNW/ - After nearly two decades treating skin ailments in Canada, advanced skincare authority, dermatologist Dr. Sylvia Garnis-Jones, has launched a luxury skincare range. Inspired by Dr. Garnis-Jones' career in dermatology, her 54-acre farm and commitment to help protect the environment, Puriste is a carefully-crafted collection of 16 revolutionary products that have clinically proven to transform skin. Housed in recyclable glass packaging with tree-free, water-free Fibrestone® labels, Puriste is designed to tighten, smooth, rejuvenate, brighten and clear up skin. The range targets common problems like acne, acne scarring, aging, wrinkles, age spots, rosacea, dryness, and sensitivity. At it's core is glycolic acid — the ingredient Dr. Garnis-Jones witnessed breathe new life into the skin of so many patients over the years.

Glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane has the smallest molecular size in comparison to other AHA's, which gives it better capacity to penetrate skin. Puriste's glycolic acid products act as multi-action peels by deeply exfoliating, removing several layers of dead skin cells reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne, scarring, blotchiness, brown spots, pore size, and sun damage. Studies have also shown that glycolic acid stimulates natural collagen production, resulting in measurable improvement in the appearance of skin firmness.

The exfoliating action of glycolic acid creates an ideal environment for the plethora of potent natural ingredients found in Puriste's formulas to penetrate the fresh skin underneath with vitamin-rich and hydrating nourishment. "After seeing the amazing results glycolic acid produced in my patient's skin time and time again, it was my aim to make these same proven benefits available to people everywhere," explains Dr. Sylvia Garnis-Jones, Puriste founder and dermatologist.

Just as important as what is found in Puriste products is what is not. All Puriste products are without any phthalates, sulfates, petroleum-based products, silicones, synthetic fragrances, GMO, animal/dairy derived products, or artificial coloring.  Additionally, this earth-conscious skin care line is gluten-free, cruelty-free and uses green packaging practices. Dr. Garnis-Jones made her commitment to green pactices clear when she stated "as a dermatologist I feel great responsibility to save people's skin, but as a human being living on this beautiful planet, I feel an even greater responsibility to save our Earth." That is why every Puriste product is packaged with recyclable glass containers, 100% recycled hang-tags, and tree-free, water-free FiberStone® labels.
