Help prevent drug-facilitated sexual assault and to keep people, especially women, safe from predators and drink spiking.
To make women feel a little safer in the unpredictable world we live in.
Created by Alexsandra Wolfe when she was a freshman in college, Pure-Sipity was born out of a desire to change the narrative for woman at risk of drug-facilitated sexual assault. Our goal is to significantly lower the number of people victimized by predators and help make sure that a fun night out doesn’t turn into a devastating experience.
It happens more than you think, drugs being slipped into people’s drinks at clubs, bars, or parties. On average, there are over 463,000 reported cases of sexual assault each year in the United States, with 90% of those cases being women. Over 35% of college-aged women (those between the ages of 18 and 24) experience rape or sexual assault through physical force, violence, or incapacitation due to alcohol or commonly used date rape drugs.*
Designed by women for women, our locket-style bracelets provide a quick, easy, and discreet way to test drinks for commonly used date rape drugs, such as GHB and Ketamine. It’s as easy as opening the locket, placing a drop of a drink on the test strips, and waiting for the results.
Our jewelry designs are fun, modern, trendy, and affordable; range in style from casually elegant to beach chic; and can be worn alone or stacked with other jewelry. There’s no other product like it in the market!
Pure-Sipity has been featured on Fox News and in the Tampa Bay Business Journal and has won numerous awards, including 1st place at the University of Tampa’s New Venture Expo (2019 & 2021), 2nd Place at the University of Tampa’s Creating Real Entrepreneurial Actions Through Education (2020), and a Top 25 Finalist at the Schulze Entrepreneurship Challenge (2020). Alexsandra was also recognized on Tampa Bay Inno’s Under 25 list in 2020.

Alexsandra (“Allie”) Wolfe
Founder & CEO
An Entrepreneurship major with a minor in Marketing at the University of Tampa, I was in my first entrepreneurship class in college when the professor asked if anyone had a business idea they’d like to share. I raised my hand and said I wanted to create fashionable bracelets that carry date rape drug testers in them to protect people from drink spiking. And just like that, I was thrust into the world of entrepreneurship and what a great ride it’s been! From filing a patent, developing prototypes, working with manufacturers, lawyers, and chemists, winning pitch competitions, and staying up all hours of the night making bracelets with Amanda to test the market, it’s been a journey with a simple goal in mind: to help keep people safe from predators.
During our market test run, our bracelets were met with such enthusiasm and we were being asked repeatedly for more product, not just by young women, but by parents who had heard about us. Today, our journey continues with the launch of our first Kickstarter coming in July 2021! And the best part is that now I get to do this with a great team of talented women that are as passionate as I am about Pure-Sipity. So please, read on and meet the rest of the Pure-Sipity team!
MEET THE TEAM
Chief Marketing & Innovation Officer
A Marketing major with a minor in Entrepreneurship at the University of Tampa, Amanda was in that entrepreneurship class with Allie the day she shared her idea with the class and her first thought was, “what a great idea!” A few semesters later, they re-connected over sorority sisterhood and a shared love for creating jewelry, especially jewelry that has a purpose. “It’s so important to think outside the box and come up with novel ideas and solutions to problems and I think Pure-Sipity is one of those ideas that have the potential to have a big impact. It’s so often the case that people don’t think it can happen to them, until it happens to them. And hey, who doesn’t love jewelry?!”
