Review :

  • An amazing soap! Lathers well, does not hurt eyes much, has a gritty texture(not very harsh) with a mild smell.
  • I had these acne pimples on my face which this soap helped heal and fade out extremely faster.
  • I generally like to use the same cleanser for my face and body (while taking bath) and found that this soap is not harsh and does not make my skin dry or tight-feeling. Also, it does not sting the eyes.
  • It lathers well and does not become soft and mushy on usage.
  • Along with containing these amazing properties, it has wonderful ingredients and is non-toxic, non-GMO, and cruelty-free.
  • The brand – ‘Bare Necessities’ says that they use the best ingredients that are local and ethically sourced.
  • You can buy the soap from or from the Bare Essentials website itself. I had to buy a few other items as well, hence picked up the soap from the website.
  • Head over to the Bare Essentials website to read about more about their The Last Straw Campaign.
  • Do definitely give this soap a try!

About the Brand :

1. We only use the best ingredients that are zero waste and ethically sourced: When we say best, we don’t just mean what’s best for you; we also mean what’s best for the planet. We go to great lengths to ensure all of our ingredients are organic, local and fair trade, and all of our products are non-toxic, non-GMO, and cruelty-free. All of our packagings are 100% recyclable and eco-friendly. So feel free to pamper yourself without a twinge of guilt.
2. Our products are truly bare: We believe less is more. We also believe that if an ingredient is too hard to pronounce or if it sounds like it belongs in a chemistry lab, it can’t be good for you to put in or on your body. Which is why, we feature only natural, bare recipes that do you no harm.  Additionally, all products come in bare, zero-waste, completely recyclable packaging.
3. Our products are designed not to last: Yup, you read that right. Since all our products are handmade fresh, have no chemical preservatives, and come in small quantities, they won’t last you years on end like other products you buy off the shelf. Our recipes are deliberately kept bare, minus any fillers, so you get more of each carefully-curated ingredient. As a result, a little goes a long way.
4. Our products are handmade and heart made: All our products are lovingly handmade fresh at the time of receiving an order. Slight variations may sometimes occur from batch to batch, but never in the quality of your Bare Necessities!
5. We absolutely LOVE coconut oil: Like most Indians, we believe organic coconut oil native to the country is a miracle cure for a whole bunch of skin and hair problems. Which is why we’ve arrived at game-changing ways to add this magical ingredient to your beauty routine. You can thank us later.

6. How we package: We use reusable glass jars, wrapped in cloth scraps from our local tailor and paper scraps from our printer. Our labels are printed on recycled paper. We use paper tape as far as possible. We do have to use clear tape on the shipping label, as stipulated by our logistics partner. Do let us know if you have any ideas for us, to reduce this plastic clear tape from being used at all. Always open to suggestions!
