About Real Purity®
The Real Purity reputation as a manufacturer and supplier of
exceptionally superior products is the result of the life's work of
Virginia founded, developed and built Real Purity as she realized a
dream and a lifelong mission. Her dreams and mission were to help others
find a better life path to health and wellness through education and
higher life choices.
Virginia worked to build Real Purity into a company that stands for
quality and integrity. Real Purity has been, and continues to be, a
company dedicated to helping others while considering and caring for the
environment, and putting people before profit.
Virginia worked in the field of nursing. She trained in and graduated
from The Cadet Nursing Corps. She worked as Head of Nurses at an
Osteopathic Hospital. Virginia's work as a nurse and her experience in
caring for patients, and the relationships and experiences shared with
those patients and their families, helped to lay the groundwork for the
J-Rich Clinic and Real Purity Products.
After becoming a licensed cosmetologist and instructor, she furthered
her education in the field of cosmetology, earning a degree in
cosmetology from a state college. She went on to become a licensed
esthetician and tricologist; she served as the President of the National
Association of Estheticians for one year.
Virginia opened the J-Rich Clinic in 1971 in Ypsilanti, Michigan. She
worked with many clients to improve their health and appearance and was
successful in helping a number of problem skin and scalp cases referred
to her by the University of Michigan Hospital , as well as many others,
not only with skin and scalp problems, but with many other types of
health problems as well. The J-Rich Clinic is still in operation today.
Virginia had, from an early age growing up on a farm, an appreciation
for things of nature, including nutrition. She became a Certified
Nutritional Consultant (CNC) and Aroma therapist. The J-Rich Clinic
became well known for its work, and people from other states and
countries came there for help, health, and education.
Virginia, while working with people to improve their skin, overall
appearance and health, became more acutely aware of something she had
sensed for some time, and as an idea whose time has come, it became more
and more apparent. The chemicals and synthetic substances that people
were not only exposed to, but even put into and unto their bodies, were
contributing factors to un-wellness and disease. Hence a new idea was
born “Real Purity”.
At the time Virginia was a consultant to and involved in laboratory work
with a large and very well known company. That company today is still a
major player in the Beauty Business, including cosmetics and personal
The realization that there had to be a better way than all the
chemicals, petrochemicals, toxic and synthetic ingredients being used,
launched Virginia on a path that would become a real calling and a large
part of her life's work. Little did she know at the time all the
resistance she would meet or that the products she would formulate and
develop would lead her to become known as one of the true “pioneers” in
Fortunately for Virginia, her extensive background in chemistry,
biochemistry and her love of herbs would serve her well in her new
endeavor. Virginia worked closely with her daughter-in-law, Karen Prain
Easterling, a licensed cosmetologist whom she had trained personally.
After much thought they came up with the name “Real Purity” and began a
journey to develop and manufacture pure products that would embody the
name “Real Purity”.
A strong commitment was made in the development of Real Purity, to using
plants, minerals and natural safe earth ingredients in the
formulations, instead of the synthetic ingredients and petrochemicals so
widely used in products not only at that time, but that are still in
use today. After much thought, study, labor, trial and error, a much
purer, much more natural and environmentally friendly line of products
was born-Real Purity. No one could have been more pleased to bring Real
Purity to the people than Virginia.
Some unfailing principles that became the theme that ran throughout
Virginia's formulations and in the product development were: “first, do
no harm,” that included not only humans but animals as well. No Animal
Testing Of Any Kind. Ever. Another principle was the care and
responsible stewardship of our planet and environment. In her work and
teaching she emphasized that not only was it important to consider the
things we put into, around and unto our bodies, but what we put down our
drains and into our water, as that would ultimately effect our
relationship with Mother Earth. Now, over twenty years later, it is common knowledge that synthetic
substances and petrochemicals, as well as natural substances and
phytochemicals can be delivered and driven into the body via the skin.
This is especially true in areas where blushing may occur, the skin
being somewhat thinner in these areas, especially the throat and neck,
upper chest, inner thighs etc.. This was and is of great importance to
women but also to the environment and our planet.
The products that Real Purity offers come from years of working closely
with people and nature. The empirical knowledge gained from many years
of working with many different people at the clinic and used in the Real
Purity formulations is now being seen in other health issues and
topics, as the scientific validation of herbs, vitamins, enzymes and
minerals becomes more common and mainstream.
Real Puritys’ Formulations and ideas have been researched and developed
using the best and highest quality natural ingredients available by
working with Naturopathic Doctors, Biochemists, Clinical Nutritionists,
Enzyme Therapists, Natural Estheticians, and Master Clinical Herbalists;
we bring the highest quality products possible to the table.
Real Purity products have been tested and developed in clinical settings
to become much more than just “shampoos and crèmes.” We have diligently
strived to develop products that not only do no harm to people,
animals, or the environment, but that are therapeutic in nature and
Real Purity products are a high quality resource for personal care,
beauty and health products with a firm commitment to excellence. We
believe that quality is the result of higher intentions, intelligent
direction, sincere effort and skilled ability along with a desire and
willingness to make a real difference. In other words, quality is never
an accident. There is a great deal of difference between “good enough”
and the best, as well as, between mediocrity and superiority. REAL
