“I founded Acure Organics as a way to honor my grandmother, who battled breast cancer for over 10 years. I wanted to help raise money for breast cancer research and awareness while also providing healthy products that promote healthier living and a greener planet. We are proud to donate to Bright Pink and to help provide free mammograms to at risk women.”—Kristy Guerra

Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
Chlorella is a single-cell green algae. Acure uses certified organic open-cell chlorella to ensure the purity of their CGF which is truly a skin care miracle. CGF is rich in RNA and DNA, the nucleic acids that create life. Your body’s creation of RNA and DNA is significantly reduced in your early twenties, leading to aging. Acure CGF contains 10,000 mg per 100g of RNA, the highest source available for your skin. Healthy cells count on the perfect replication of RNA and DNA. CGF helps boost this process and protect DNA and RNA during the replication process. CGF is also clinically proven to protect collagen and elastin fibers from the enzymes that destroy them.
Clinical studies have shown CGF to increase collagen expression by 333% when used at 1% concentration. Acure's anti-aging products use CGF at an amazing 5% concentration.
Rebuilding and protecting collagen is key to anti-aging. This is what makes Acure Organics such a unique and effective skin care miracle. See the difference in your skin.
The curoxidant blend is a combination of 5 certified organic superfruits and herbs freeze dried and carefully blended to ensure maximum potency. This ultra-high antioxidant blend is a true free radical scavenger. Free radicals are clinically shown to contribute to aging. Acure's Curoxidant Blend effectively neutralizes free radicals and helps reverse the signs of aging. They use Curoxidant in each of their products.

Armed with easy tools from making healthier product choices free from harmful chemicals and rich in vital nutrients, to connecting to their interests, dreams and all the ideas that are brewing deep down inside, they strive to help the next generation find the face they wish to present to the world while encouraging them to remold cultural expectations of what is truly attractive every step of the way.
Organic food production is a much more natural and sustainable enterprise than conventional farming. This is because organic agriculture does not use any synthetic pesticides or inputs that often remain present in soil and water long after the crops have been harvested, and may potentially create additional damage to ecosystems (such as the current crisis with bee populations). Also, organic agricultural methods encourage recycling, for instance using manure as a natural fertilizer in fields.
Nutrition and Health Benefits
It has been scientifically validated that many organic foods offer higher quantities of important vitamins and nutrients than their conventional counterparts. Certainly, the consumption of organic foods reduces the amount of pesticide residues and other potential toxins ingested. This has proven to be a particularly important benefit for infants and small children.
Most organic farmers operate smaller scale family farms where they have a strong, personal connection to the land they are farming. The purchase of organic food supports these farmers, their families, and their communities.
