PURA's Signature Soap, which debuted in December, is one of our most artful collaborations to date. Crafted by our friends at Wild Prairie Soap Company, the beauty is in every aspect of this hand poured soap. Details such as ethereal marble swirls of soothing French pink clay throughout each bar and a gold stamped PURA emblem, were inspired by Canadian artist, Amy Dixon, whose artwork is also featured on this box.
We recently caught up with Amy and chatted about her career as an artist, her favourite PURA potions and how she survives the cold, Northern Alberta winters.
