Introducing Fresh Canadian Brands 2016

When we at Pure+Simple were curating “Fresh Canadian Brands” to include in our July pop-up, we found that many of the companies actually had similar start-up stories to that of our Pure + Simple founders.  The founders of all these companies were fed up with the available solutions on the market. Some wanted natural products, but most just wanted whatever would actually work!

This July, Pure+ Simple will be shining a spotlight on these Fresh Canadian Brands during a month-long in-store event. The brands featured have  a lot in common with Pure + Simple. They're proudly designed and produced in Canada. They're made from natural ingredients and free of harmful chemicals. They have been developed to be eco-conscious and sustainable. Last but not least, they aim to provide the best in beauty and skincare for their clients! 

We've invited the founders to be in store to talk, test and offer you personalized product recommendations. We hope to highlight some locally-sourced talent and provide our clients with some fresh alternatives to their routine products. 

Without further ado, here are our Fresh Canadian Brands!
