    Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate

    This is a plant derived gentle cleanser used in most personal care products.


    This ingredient is found naturally in some food. It’s also made when things like wine, beer and cheese ferment – the good stuff.

    Sodium Dehydroacetate

    This is a nature identical salt preservative ingredient and approved for use in natural cosmetics.

    Sodium Citrate

    This is just the salt from citric acid - which is naturally found in lemons and oranges. Also found in edible food such as yogurt, cheese and wine

    Sodium Benzoate

    This is the pillar that keeps our powder concentrate foaming soap fresh over a long period of time. Ours is derived from plants

    Sodium Phytate

    This is also just another form of salt. Ours is derived from corn. Yes! The sweet kind

    Citric Acid

    A safe acid found in citrus plants such as lemons and oranges and has a natural cleansing ability. Tough on the bad stuff but gentle on your skin

    Glyceryl Caprylate

    A coconut derived preservative booster so you can safely use your hand wash for longer 

    Hydrated Silica

    This beauty is also found in most toothpastes

    Cocoyl Proline

    We love Coconut. We took coconut goodness and created a high performing hand wash powder that you love. This is the ingredient that further improves the effectiveness of our waste free hand wash


    Just a tiny bit so we can keep our products waste-free and super concentrated

    Lavender Flower Essential Oil

    This is what makes our hand wash foaming soap smell so good. Just the right amount to give you that gentle and pleasant whiff of essential oil scent.


    Mandarin Rind Essential Oil

    This is what makes our hand wash foaming soap smell like fresh Oranges and add additional cleanse to your hands.

    Powder Concentrate

    Should I use distilled or filtered warm water only with the powder concentrate?

    If you live in a developed world, like Australia, then warm tap water is okay, if you live in a place with no clean tap water then distilled or filtered water is recommended. 

    Are your products tested on animals?

    The thought of doing that makes us sad :( The only animals we use for testing are our own bodies. Friends usually test it next. If they like it and ask for more, we keep it.

    Are your powder concentrate products made of natural ingredients?

    Yes, all our formulations are natural and plant derived or made from natural identicals. 

    Does your powder concentrate contain Palm Oil?

    No, we wouldn't even consider it. 

    Are your products suitable for vegetarians?

    Yes, all our formulations are natural and plant derived or made from natural identicals. 

    Are all of our ingredients listed on our sachet packaging?

    Totally! Baresop takes transparency very seriously and believes it’s important to inform people on what they are putting on their skin. No secrets here...we are as proud of our recycled bottles as we are of the goodness inside. 

    Are your products suitable for vegans?

    Yes, all our products are Vegan friendly.

    Are your products certified organic

    Our products are made of natural ingredients, but not all of them are certified organic. Organic certification can be very useful when it comes to unprocessed food to ensure it is free of pesticides and not genetically modified. We have chosen to focus on natural, edible ingredients based on how much they help the skin rather than whether or not they get the tick of approval by organic certifying bodies. Natural is almost always best in our opinion.

    Are your products GE and GMO free?

    Yes, our powder concentrates are free from GMOs and GEs, making them suitable for those who prefer to use GMO free skin care products in their routine.

    Are your products gluten free?

    Yes, all our powder concentrates are gluten-free, making them suitable for those looking for gluten-free body wash options.

    Do you use artificial fragrance

    No, that would be uncool. We use Australian botanical natural oils. 

    Are your products biodegradable and septic tank safe

    Yes! We formulated our products with a commitment to create a biodegradable and environmentally friendly solution. 

    Are your products made in Australia?

    Yes! All our entire products and packaging are locally sourced and made apart from our recycled ocean waste foaming pumps that we source from a Danish company who manufactures them in China - and that’s because we could not find any supplier for recycled foaming pumps in Australia. Let us know if you know of any one who could supply this locally.

    I have extreme allergies and sensitive skin, can I still use your hand wash?

    Everybody is different and what works for some will not for others. Some people have allergies to natural ingredients. As with all natural products, we do suggest you do a patch test first to ensure no reactions.

    How do I do a patch test?

    Apply a pea-sized amount of product as close as possible to the most affected area and leave for 24 hours. If any sort of irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately. If you do not experience any irritation you may go ahead and use as directed.


    Are all your packaging made out of recycled materials and are recycling friendly after use?

    One of our core business values is to minimize environmental impact and promoting sustainability, that's why we use eco-friendly skincare packaging made from recycled materials and aim to create less waste. When you receive a starter kit with the recycled shipping box, you can reuse it for storage around your house or send it back to reuse again.

    Why do you use recycled plastic packaging and not glass?

    We get you. Our choice to use recycled refillable plastic bottles for our sustainable skin care packaging can be confusing. Here is why. When we did our market research, we found out that glass bottles pose a risk for those with young kids. And secondly, in Australia, the Glass Recycling industry is non-existent. Let us know if you know of any recycled glass supplier in Australia and we commit to explore it, as an option for those without young kids at home.

    Do your products contain micro plastic?

    Absolutely not. Micro-plastics are usually made from polyethylene, nylon, and polypropylene, we do not use any of these ingredients. As part of our commitment to sustainable skin care packaging, we make sure to avoid the use of microplastics in our products and packaging.

      Hand wash is great

      The hand wash is great easy to make up and easy to use.

      Unfortunately the sachets seem to get damp inside no matter where I store them.

      Hi Sasha, Thanks for letting us know. We have recently resolved this issue by changing the quality of the sachet film. Reach out at and let us know which sachets scents got dump and we'll replace those for you.

      This soap has a really lovely foam texture that doesn’t disappear off your hands as soon as a little water hits it like some other foaming soaps I’ve tried. I’m loving that it doesn’t dry out my hands at all and the scent is lovely but doesn’t linger on your hands. A winner!
