The Natural Alternative to Botox®?

Is it possible to effectively treat wrinkles without painful and expensive Botox® injections? According to breakthrough research from scientists at Monash University and lapureté, the world’s first skincare range based on a natural Botox® alternative, the answer is ‘yes’.

New Australian skincare brand, lapureté is the world’s first range of anti-wrinkle products containing a natural Botox® alternative, Okuru. Okuru is a plant native to a remote part of Western Africa, where locals have been using it for centuries for its high nutritional food value and skin benefits.

A few years ago French scientists set out to investigate the secret behind the local inhabitants’ flawless skin and discovered that Okuru contains a combination of peptides that minimise wrinkles in a similar way to Botox®, but are natural, safe and can be applied topically without the need for invasive injections!

A team at Monash University in Melbourne led by Professor Barrie Finnin (Chair of Formulation Science) were sceptical about the anti-ageing claims of Okuru and set out to validate them and found that it is a very effective treatment for expression lines with the average participant receiving an impressive 27 per cent reduction in expression lines after four weeks use.

lapureté doesn’t just work on wrinkles. It’s an all-round effective anti-ageing range with clinically proven natural actives, like Okuru, that target common skin concerns such as sagging skin, eye bags, dark circles, dry skin, enlarged pores, age spots and UVA damage.

The range consists of four key products that can be used individually, or for best results, together in a simple three-step system:

Step 1 – Mild Crème Facial Cleanser
Step 2 – Revitalising Eye Crème.
Step 3 (Day) – Protective Day Crème
Step 3 (Night) – Revitalising Night Crème

lapureté is currently available online at or in over 90 beauty salons, day spas and specialty outlets throughout Australia.

Botox® is a registered trademark of Allergan Inc. and no endorsement by that company is implied.

Used this for 3 months, don't see any difference. Also the company didn't bother answering my email. So no customer srvice. all around very disappointing.

I'm using a fantastic age resistant product that does work, so yes, there are products out there. i guess unless you've tried Lapurete, you really can't comment.
