THE BARE SKIN BAR BELIEF

We believe in giving you the best of the best to make your skin look and feel fantastic. Whether it's from Mother Nature herself or created in a laboratory, we only use high-quality, skin-safe, and often food-grade materials to create our unique line of premium bath treatments.

Bare Skin Bars are free of preservatives, parabens/phthalates (commonly found in fragrance oils), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)/sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), and any of that crazy stuff you see in traditional bath bombs, like glitter or pop rocks or tiny little prizes.

We’re all about living that 100% transparent life, so we encourage you to read more about our selected ingredients here.

Sodium Bicarbonate

Commonly known as baking soda, scientifically known as nahcolite, sodium bicarbonate is a natural alkaline that neutralizes acids and washes away oils/dirt while leaving skin soft, silky & smooth. It dissolves in water and, when mixed with appropriate amounts with citric acid, produces the effervescent action in Bare Skin Bars. We use food-grade sodium bicarbonate derived naturally from a nahcolite deposit source in North America in our formulas.

Found in Calming, Softening, Restoring, and Detoxifying Bars.


Citric Acid

Citric Acid comes from citrus fruits. It has astringent and antioxidant properties and is commonly used in cosmetic formulas to create a more balanced and neutralized pH. When mixed in appropriate amounts with baking soda, it produces a chemical reaction that leads to the effervescent action in Bare Skin Bars. We use food-grade, all natural citric acid in our formulas.

Found in Calming, Softening, Restoring, and Detoxifying Bars.


Epsom Salt

Commonly used as bath salts, all natural Epsom Salt is absorbed through the skin when dissolved in warm water and works to replenish the body's levels of magnesium. Primary benefits (among many!) include relaxation, muscle tension relief, and production of serotonin.

Found in Restoring Bars.


Himalayan Sea Salt

Known as the purest of salts, Himalayan Pink Salt is an all-natural mineral salt said to pack more than 80 minerals and trace elements, which is soaked into skin through warm water. Among its ability to calm the mind and body, this lustrous salt balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, balances the body’s pH, increases circulation, and helps relieve irritating and painful skin disorders such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. We use food-grade, hand-mined Himalayan Pink Salt in our formulas.

Found in Calming Bars.


sea salt

Sea salt baths promote relaxation, reduced stress, enhanced circulation, increased detoxification, improved skin integrity and decreased inflammation. We use food-grade, solar-evaporated sea salt harvested from the Mediterranean Sea in our formulas.

Found in Calming, Softening, and Detoxifying Bars.


Maranta Arundinacea Root

Commonly known as arrowroot powder, this lightweight, natural powdered herb is a common replacement for talc in many cosmetic and skincare formulations, and makes bathwater feel soft and silky smooth.

Kaolinite (White Clay)

Kaolin clay is a soft, white cosmetic clay used in many skincare products as it is the mildest of all clays and suitable for all skin types. Its gentle absorptive properties do not over-dry the skin, yet it remains effective for pulling impurities to the surface and gently stimulating circulation.

Found in Calming, Softening, and Detoxifying Bars.


Kaolinite (Rose Clay)

Rose clay is a mild kaolin clay perfect for dry, sensitive, or mature skin. It has gently exfoliating properties and helps to detoxify the skin by drawing impurities from pores. The gorgeous natural colour of this clay, derived from naturally-occurring iron oxides, is what gives our Calming Bars their pretty, light pink hue.

Found in Calming and Detoxifying Bars.


Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour

Oatmeal is a natural antioxidant used in skincare formulations due to its outstanding array of skin benefits, most notably to soothe and soften dry, itchy and irritated skin. We use food-grade oats, finely ground into meal to create the smooth and creamy texture in our formulas.

coconut milk powder

Coconut milk is a luxurious vegan alternative to a traditional milk bath, providing many of the same benefits such as gentle cleansing, exfoliation, and skin softening.

Found in Softening Bars.


fuller earth clay

Fuller's Earth is a natural clay used in skincare products because of it’s ability to absorb oil and reduce oiliness from the skin surface. It is thought to tighten the pores thus improving skin texture with a smooth, soft and glowing appearance.

Found in Restoring Bars.


Spirulina Platensis

Spirulina is a type of oceanic algae that contains large concentrations of vitamins and minerals, including the B complex vitamins. It is high in a rare type of fatty acid called gamma linolenic acid (GLM) that is found in very few food sources. GLM is said to be one of the most effective agents in the maintenance of healthy skin and for the alleviation of skin disorders. The dark blue-green colour of spirulina provides the main colouring of our Restoring bars.

Found in Restoring Bars.


Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil

Hemp seed oil has a comedogenic rating of zero, making it a perfect skin softener and moisturizer for those with oily / sensitive skin. The natural, unrefined oil used in our formulas add a beautiful, rich green colour to the final product.

Found in Restoring Bars.


coconut oil

Coconut oil has long been used as a natural moisturizer, and help soothe inflammation and redness that can be caused by irritated skin. High in vitamin E, coconut oil can also help to fight damage to the skin thanks to its powerful antioxidant properties. We use food-grade, virgin coconut oil in our formulas, so the light tropical scent is detectable in the final product.

Found in Detoxifying Bars.


shea butter

Shea butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree in Ghana. It is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. We use 100% natural, unrefined shea butter in our formulas, so the mild nutty scent comes through in the final product.

Found in Softening Bars.


polysorbate 80

Polysorbates are a class of emulsifiers used in skincare, pharmaceuticals, and food. Although originally derived from natural sources, they are considered a safe synthetic ingredient afer processing, often used in cosmetics to solubilize oil ingredients into water-based formulas. In Bare Skin Bars, polysorbate 80 acts as an emulsifier so that oils / butters are dispersed throughout bath water, and a surfactant to help reduce build up of oils and colorants on the side of bath tubs.

Found in Calming, Restoring, and Detoxifying Bars.


Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Distillate

Witch Hazel is an alcoholic extract from the leaves, flowers and bark of the hamamelis tree and is one of the best toners for skin care preparations on the market.

Dried Calendula Flowers

Also known as pot marigold, these bright orange and yellow blooms promote cheerful feelings and are said to help improve mild melancholy, often associated with seasonal affective disorder. Coupled with skin benefits like helping heal wounds, soothe inflammation, and clear infections, this natural botanical is a perfect addition to bath treatments.

Found in Softening Bars.


Dried Chamomile Flowers

Chamomile flowers have long been added to bath teas as a natural botanical element to calm skin irritations, such as burns (including sunburns), rashes, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and itchy / inflamed skin.

Lemon essential oil is beneficial for brightening up dull, lacklustre skin and stimulating white blood cells to defend the body against infection. In aromatherapy, it is said to improve mental clarity and boost immunity. We use cold-pressed, pthalate-free, undiluted lemon essential oil in our formulas. Because this is a photo-sensitive essential oil (i.e., increases UV sensitivity), it's best used for night-time baths.
