Chris Cosma (CEO & Co-Founder)
Ingredients simple and understandable

"When I wrote the concept for puremetics, it was a matter close to my heart to educate consumers about ingredients and thus help them make good decisions, not only for themselves, but also for the environment."


The cosmetics regulation according to the EU Cosmetics Directive prescribes how cosmetics providers should list and name ingredients. Plant substances, for example, must be named in Latin. Who else should climb through there? We therefore present an understandable translation for each ingredient as well as the functions in cosmetic products.

our principle
only the best for your customers and the environment

Our promise: We only use sustainable and vegan ingredients free from animal suffering. We select them according to very high quality standards and source them as regionally as possible.

We pamper you AND our environment.

We make it easy for you

On each product page you will find a list of all ingredients including translations

Did you know that the ingredients are classified according to the quantity in which they are contained? The first ingredient contains the highest percentage in the product. The last one, however, accounts for the smallest share.
