FAQ

What's the difference between a Bare Skin Bar and a bath bomb?

Essentially, Bare Skin Bars function the same way that traditional bath bombs work - they are a combination of ingredients that get dispersed throughout bathwater. However, it's not going to look like the halftime fireworks at the Super Bowl, or a galaxy far, far away. We also don't love the word "bomb"; it doesn't accurately convey our intended experience. There's no explosion, as we have chosen to focus our bars on ingredients that will make your skin thank you, instead of lovely bath art. The only bombs we like to drop are the truth kind.

 

How long do Bare Skin Bars last? 

This is dependant on how the bars are stored (should be in a cool and dry place), but in general, we recommend you use them within four months of opening the box. Although all of the ingredients have longer shelf lives, we do not use any preservatives and the bars tend to lose their effervescence and colour the longer they are exposed to moisture in the air. You can prolong their freshness by wrapping them or keeping them in an airtight container.

 

Why do the bars look different from each other?

Because the bars are handcrafted in micro batches, the colours will often vary from box to box. The colour changes are based on the amount of liquid used in the bars, which can vary slightly, depending on the amount of humidity during production.

 

Are your products 100% natural?

Our bath bar line up ranges from 97-99.5% natural ingredients; we have included a few high-quality, skin-safe synthetics to our formulas for cosmetic and functional purposes, listed in our ingredients section here. We love learning about the ingredients in skincare products and hope you do, too!

 

Do you offer returns or exchanges?

Due to health and safety reasons, we cannot accept returns or exchanges, but we'll gladly replace products that were damaged upon receipt. Please send a description and image of the issue to info@bareskinbar.com. Shipping costs (if required) will be at the expense of the customer. 

 

How long will it take to receive the product from the time I order it?

Orders are generally handmade and cured within 5 business days after ordering. From there, they are packaged, and delivered via Canada Post standard shipping, which can take from 2-5 business days. We have reduced rates with this carrier for reliable, cost-effective shipping, which we pass on through flat-rate shipping country wide.

 

Where do you ship?

Currently, Bare Skin Bars are only available in Canada. More locations to come!


 
Do you offer wholesale or bulk discounts?

Absolutely! Please contact info@bareskinbar.com with your request. Minimum order quantities apply.

 

Why don’t you sell the different bars in one box of four?

To reduce waste, we pack Bare Skin Bars in groups of four in boxes made of premium, uncoated, 100% recyclable stock. The actual bars go in "naked" (meaning they are not individually shrink-wrapped in plastic). Since each bar is unique, their scents can mix if packaged together. To prevent this, we don't mix and match our barsin the same box.
