Lapurete Okuru Range



A lot of brands have anti-ageing products but not that many have anti-ageing products specifically for certain age groups, for example those over 30 or 35 need more potent anti-ageing skincare than those below 30. Anyone over the age of 35 would be lucky not to have a few fine lines or wrinkles here and there.

Lapurete is an Australian natural cosmeceutical skincare brand which makes specialty products targeted towards signs of ageing, clinically proven to produce superior anti-ageing results but like any other skincare, you’d have to use them continuously for over a month to see any results. The products contain no toxic ingredients and are packed with clinically proven, natural active ingredients that target all signs of aging including wrinkles, expression lines, sagging skin, age spots, dry skin, eye bags, dark circles, enlarged pores and UVA damage.

Key characteristics of Lapurete

• Highly concentrated anti-ageing Cosmeceutical style ingredients to target the signs of ageing skin

• Clinically proven natural anti-ageing ingredients to delivery visible results within a number of weeks

• High quality, natural, effective skincare ingredients for younger, healthier, beautiful looking skin

• Targeted natural ingredients for low irritancy to maximize benefits on the skin

• Include rich nourishing ingredients to make your skin feel refreshed and younger

• Lapurete harnesses the anti-ageing fighting benefits of clinically proven unique natural ingredients to deliver – Natural Cosmeceutical

The Lapurete ethos is that you don’t need to put harmful chemicals on to or in to your skin when you can get the same anti-ageing benefits with amazing natural ingredients.

There are two different product ranges under Lapurete:

1. The Okuru range – designed to tackle and reverse the more advanced signs of aging, for usersaged 30+ and above;

2. The Wakame range – designed to tackle the first signs of aging, for users aged 20+ and early 30s

TNS Skinlab very kindly offered me a starter kit of either the Okuru or Wakame range and of course since I am (ahem!) of a rather advanced age, I had to choose the Okuru range. There are times when I cannot deny my age. After all, this is the time to bring on all the anti-ageing products before they are of no use whatsoever. Oh yes, there will comes a time when I’ll need much more than anti-ageing skincare.

Lapurete Okuru Range – Nature’s Wrinkle Treatment

Lapurete 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.

The Okuru peptide is the key active ingredient in the Lapurete Okuru anti-aging range. The range offers modern women a convenient, inexpensive, natural but most effective 3-step anti-aging skincare system that can fit effortlessly into their daily routines:





Step 1 – Mild Crème Facial Cleanser

This is a gentle milky cream cleanser which removes dirt and impurities, I have been using it to remove make-up too and it removes almost all make-up. I’d suggest a separate eye make-up remover for complete and thorough cleansing even though it’s stated that it can whisk away facial and eye make-up. It has a toning effect on skin but I still use a toner after this. The first time I used this, my skin felt a bit slippery as if I couldn’t rinse away all the cleanser but I got used to it subsequently. It doesn’t make my skin feel taut and dry.

The cleanser contains Okuru and passionflower which has been used by the indigeneous people of the Amazon for centuries for treating skin conditions, enhancing relaxation and as an aphrodisiac (doubt they ever need Viagra!).



Step 2- Revitalizing Eye Crème

Targets all 3 signs of ageing around the eyes: wrinkles, under eye bags and dark circles. The skin around the eye area is delicate and is where the most visible signs of ageing appear.


• Smooths out and reduces wrinkles around the eye area

• Reduces the appearance of dark circles and puffiness

• Increases the appearance of skin firmness and elasticity

Has a powerful combination of peptides from sweet pea, soy and rice bran and yeast proteins. Hydrates the eye area very well and smoothens skin around eyes. Very light and non-sticky, absorbs into skin very quickly.






Step 3 – Protective Day Crème : A combination of peptides from sweet pea with Okuru to minimize the appearance of expression lines

(Night) Revitalising Night Crème : An extract from the Resurrection Plant drenches the skin with intense moisturization to combat the harsh ageing effects of dry skin.

These two moisturisers are extremely hydrating and great for softening and smoothing skin especially if you use a facial oil before applying them.

In addition, Lapurete offers a Gentle Crème Facial Exfoliant that contains jojoba beads to gently exfoliate and reveal a fresh, smooth layer of skin, allowing your skin to better absorb your Okuru anti-ageing products and a highly concentrated Okuru Double Intensity Serum for those who demand more intensive and faster results. The powerful, all-natural serum targets the major signs of ageing, helps to combat skin sagging and hydrates a dull, dry complexion. The serum contains a double dose of Okuru Peptides.

The Wakame range is designed to cater for younger users who are experiencing the first signs of aging, but are looking for products that are effective, but are lighter and less oily than the typical anti-aging products.

Lapurete products are exclusively available at all TNS Skin Lab outlets nationwide.
