Alima Pure is a natural cosmetics brand from Portland, Oregon. Made using clean, non-toxic ingredients, our products are designed for everyone.
Kate O’Brien founded Alima Pure in 2004 in her attic, when the natural beauty landscape was very different. She wasn’t a makeup artist or beauty industry insider. She was a mother and a kindergarten teacher.
As a woman founded and run company, empowering and connecting with others has always been at the forefront of what we do. We believe that your makeup should be able to do many things at once, just like you. Makeup should enhance what you love most about yourself without hiding who you are.
We make makeup that doesn’t compromise. Our cosmetics are luxurious, high-performance, and made using clean ingredients. We seek to redefine makeup as an empowering tool of self- expression through our extensive range of foundation shades. Our products are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, dimethicone, petroleum, talc, bismuth oxychloride, and nanoparticles. They’re absolutely never tested on animals.
We are so proud to have been the first color cosmetics company to become a B Corporation! We joined B Corp in their second year in business, and are now in great company as part of a growing community of over 3,200 certified B Corporations. As a B Corp, we believe the safety and well-being of the earth and its inhabitants matters above all.
1% FOR THE PLANET
We have been a member of 1% for the Planet since our first year in business, donating 1% of our annual gross revenue (sales, not profit) to grassroots environmental organizations dedicated to protecting our planet.
We believe carbon free is the way to be and have been carbon neutral since 2008 by offsetting 100% of our corporate carbon emissions through Carbon Fund.
We participate in a Green Source Renewable Power Program, which derives power from 100% renewable sources including Solar, Wind, Biomass, Hydro, and Geothermal.
LET’S PLANT TREES
On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, it's more important than ever to show love to our environment. We are making a commitment to contribute a quarter of a million - 250,000 - trees to our beautiful planet this year and would love your help in doing so.
