MANIFESTO

To try and change what Hollywood defines as popular and beautiful is like trying to turn a ship away from the iceberg 100ft before it hits. What makes more sense is to start talking to our youth, a generation louder and more influential than any generation before them…smart, empowered, vocal and organized. These are the voices steering Hollywood, their parents and all generations that follow. With education and support, they make better choices, therefore encouraging culture to choose constructive solutions to appearance and healthy self-image.

It is unrealistic to expect skin care to solve your problems…it’s about healthy thoughts, healthy actions, healthy balance. Beauty is a drive. It’s following a passion, it’s having a voice, it’s a smile fueled by the awareness that you are making an impact in your own unique way…

…and that ultimately, compassion for yourself, your body and the world around you is more noticeable, more brilliant than a perfect appearance.

ACURE: Show Your Face Project creates programs to empower youth to paint their own picture of what they want the world to see. 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, we 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. So embrace your face, love your laugh lines and savor your scars because they play a part in where you’ve been and where you are going.

 

You have so much to show the world…

and we want to help you find it.

TRAVELING CHALKBOARD MURAL

 

A part of becoming conscious is putting your thoughts into words- that’s why ACURE introduced a traveling chalkboard mural at key campus stops on the Teens Turning Green Conscious Road Tour. Students were asked to answer deep questions with one single word, and write it on the chalkboard. It didn’t have to be pretty or even positive…just honest. Check out what they had to say…

 

  • Your future?

  • How the world sees you?

  • How you strive to be seen?

  • How you feel at this moment?

  • What inspires you?

  • Your biggest fear?

  • Your personality?

  • Your favorite feature?

  • Your least favorite feature?

  • Your past?

  • How you would impact the world?

  • Your biggest role model?

  • The feeling of accomplishment?

  • Defeat?

  • How the world sees you?

  • How your friends see you?

  • How your family sees you?

  • How you want to be seen?

  • You strongest character trait?

  • Your biggest strength?

  • Your biggest weakness?

  • Your strongest value?

  • Your view of present society?

ACURE is on a mission

Sustainable principles provide the highest quality fair trade, natural and certified organic personal care.

Kristy and Jon Guerra founded ACURE to honor Kristy’s grandmother, who battled breast cancer for over 10 years, as a way to bring awareness to the importance of healthy skin care made without toxins.

ACURE for the skin means driving real results through simple, plant and food-based ingredients. It’s not enough to be natural…it also has to work. Your skin is your largest organ and greatest ally for whole body health. Feeding it as properly as you would feed your body internally is the only way to truly optimize its function. We formulate using the same powerful nutrients that you would eat, fueling your skin through nutrition-based skin care. It’s like supplements for the skin! Clinically proven result without the use of gluten, synthetic preservatives or fragrances.  No parabens, sulfates, phthalates, petrochemicals, or animal bi-products. We provide scientific nutritional support to enhance the skin’s own ability to regenerate optimally.

ACURE for the planet is about our sustainable company culture that impacts every decision we make. Green packaging, recycled materials, 100% biodegradable. Every body lotion sold plants a tree through Trees for the Future.org. Ten cents from every hair care unit sold goes to Water.org.

ACURE for a cure highlights our commitment to creating effective personal care that steers people away from the toxic chemicals typically connected to illness and disease, allowing them to discover that you don’t have to sacrifice your health for beautiful skin and hair.

It also speaks to our tireless efforts to educate and empower consumers to stand up and demand better for generations to come through our partnership with TeensTurningGreen.org, a student lead movement that seeks to engage youth in the transition from conventional to conscious, empowering the next generation and mobilizing action to sustain our earth.
