Maria came to the UK in 2016 to peruse her business in eco-friendly skincare products where she studied in English and business. Maria said “Purevive started as my professional dream when I was in high school in 2006, when I was only 16 years old, the idea of a skincare company was born and I was ready for university, full of expectations about my future and with the aim of starting my own business.” Later on she went back to Colombia where she decided to study in chemical engineering to gain the necessary technical and industrial knowledge about the chemistry involved, and the processing environment. After her bachelors degree in Colombia, in 2012, she joined fast paced consumer goods company to help air her understanding in the industrial sector and then later, she went on to work for L’Oreal which helped her grasp a wider knowledge on the world of cosmetics.
Maria then went onto completing a masters degree in Entrepreneurship in Colombia in 2018 to link her previous experiences. By the end of 2019, she went onto setting up Purvive with the intention to encourage others to incorporate skincare into their daily lives by providing the most high quality and organic products within the market.
She mentioned that she started her business “With the big purpose to generate self-care and increase self esteem by providing natural and organic products.”
