Pure Source in Condé Nast Traveller Magazine
Condé Nast Traveller magazine is the global expert on luxury travel. In the August 2010 edition, Pure Source is featured.
A dive-master course in Barbados was the catalyst for Kim Sivyer to give up her job in investment management in London and move to the Caribbean. "I'd had enough of living to work rather than working to live" she says. Having noticed a distinct lack of good quality skincare and haircare products on the island, she set up her own beauty emporium there in 2003 called Pure Source. "Barbados has given me peace of mind" says Sivyer. "I love the weather here and feel miserable when I'm back in grey, cold and rainy London. My drive to the shop takes me along the coast and the sea is always the most beautiful azure colour. It takes my breath away every day, and that's hard to beat".
The focus at Pure Source is on natural and organic brands including Ren, Neom, Suki and make-up line Black Up and attracts locals as well as expats and holidaymakers. Sivyer has plans to open another store on Barbados at the end of the year, in the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in Holetown, which will include spa treatment rooms.
