Sustainability

waste-free

baresop. was founded with a purpose to find a solution to reduce waste in personal care products. We are committed to measuring how much carbon emission we reduce from shipping, storing and offering waterless products as well as single-use plastic-free products. When we find out this number – which should be much less than your liquid soap – we work with a carbon reduction organization to offset our carbon emissions.

Intentional ingredients

Everything we put in our body impacts not just our health, but the environment in which we live, that’s why we are obsessive about every single ingredient we put in our products. All the ingredients we use are plant-derived or plant-based, with added gentle cleansing and moisturizing minerals.

Locally-made products

All our products are locally-sourced and made in Melbourne, Australia – apart from our reusable foaming pumps which we could not produce locally, but have been developed from ocean waste.

Cruelty-free and vegan formulations

We are a 100% cruelty-free brand and are against testing on animals in any way, shape or form. We are also committed to using only plant-based ingredients in our products so we can reduce our carbon footprint in all aspects of the business. 

We ask our community to test our formulations and give us feedback to help us improve our products.

Considered materials

We take every opportunity to make it easy for our customers to reduce their environmental impact. That’s why all our packaging materials are reusable, made from recycled waste and are either recyclable or certified home compostable. Plus, all our prints are vegetable inks.

Good for you, the planet and the community

771 million people lack basic access to clean and safe drinking water. We are on a mission to change that. 

For every sachet we sell, not only do we conserve 300mL of water, but we help bring safe and clean water to communities that need it the most. 

We believe that sustainable work is locally-led. Along with implementing community-owned water projects, we’ve teamed up with Charity Water – a non-profit organisation who bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. 

Charity Water work closely with local partners to help facilitate comprehensive water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programming to protect everyone’s long-term health.
