Our soaps are all natural and free from preservatives, synthetics, or parabens. Basically, you won't find any of the yucky stuff that you would see in a "conventional" bar of soap. Speaking of which, did you know that the typical "bar of soap" that you see in the common grocery or drug store aisle is actually not soap but a detergent? You can learn more about that here.
We have both a handmade line of soaps and triple milled soaps. All are made with Rainforest Alliance certified palm oil and coconut oil which help naturally nourish the skin. Other natural ingredients are added to give color, scent, and exfoliation.
b.a.r.e. soaps was a simple idea born out of an observation in 2012. When co-founder Clare traveled around the world on mission trips, she noticed that many Westerners were helping provide fresh water to rural villages by helping dig wells. However, there was never a follow up of sanitation. So what if instead of fundraising, we were able to sell a really amazing bar of soap to fund sanitation supplies in these rural areas?
