OUR STORY

OUR INSPIRATION

dermaPURE originated on a living room couch in 2013, when founder Stacy Sachais decided that conventional Western medicine for her dermatitis was no longer an option. Mild steroid treatments, from which she experienced negative side effects, were not working to heal her hands and feet. Since childhood she was sensitive to medications, so when doctors proposed stronger prescriptions, Stacy realized there was only one solution   she needed to take control of the situation.

 

Stacy realized the importance of healthy eating in order to sustain and nourish her body, and she recognized that her plant-based diet increased her energy level when she fed her body these types of foods. As the body's largest organ, skin needs proper nourishment, as do the other organs. With these observations it occurred to Stacy that a plant-based 'medication' might help her dermatitis.

 

She began researching which plant-based products could help her hands and feet, and she produced some successful mixtures. That led to her inspiration to create body care products for her family and friends. She transformed her tiny kitchen into a science lab, with excellent results and happy product testers.

 

Today, dermaPURE works out of a commercial kitchen to create fresh, handmade products in small batches. With the intelligence of nature you'll see the difference in what using body care you can trust will do!    

In her spare time, Stacy enjoys running, yoga, and spending time with her husband, family and friends. She is a licensed massage and bodywork therapist, and continues to educate herself in oils and aromatherapy. Stacy lives within running distance of the New Jersey Botanical Gardens, where she is grateful for the pleasure of quiet moments with nature.
