Bare Necessities - A Zero Waste Personal and Home Care Brand

By Skincarevilla
Organic, natural, vegan skincare products! What's more you ask, I would say zero waste personal products. Yes, that's the underlying objective of the brand which we are going to talk about today, Bare Necessities. It is Bangalore based brand which focuses on using the best ingredients that are zero waste and ethically sourced. Also they boast of keeping their products bare with minimum ingredient list which are not designed to last and are heart made as well as handmade. The packaging they offer is also recyclable which is glass and metal cap jars. The products were sent to me in a brown paper bag with a small hand written note.

Bare Necessities Espresso Yourself Coffee Body Scrub
Ingredients - Coconut oil, Organic Coffee Powder
Coffee aficionados this is for you! A great body scrub which not only removes dead skin cells but also provides antioxidants to the skin as well as reduces cellulite. I enjoyed using this scrub although just got body. I haven't tried it on face yet.
Bare Necessities The Grasshopper
Lemongrass Bath Salts
Ingredients - Organic Epsom Salts, rock Sea Salt, Organic Coconut Oil, Lemongrass EO, Rose buds
A refreshing bath time is what I experienced after using these bath salts. My bathroom was smelling as fresh as my skin. The bath salts are a perfect way of unwinding after a hectic, sweaty day in these summers. Moreover the salts also help in detoxifying the skin. I often love using this one as a foot soak also.
Bare Necessities Lavender Levitate
Bath Salt
Ingredients - Organic Epsom Salts, rock Sea Salt, Organic Coconut Oil, Lavender EO, Lavender buds
Lavender is used for alleviating stress and tension. I didn't experience anything special after using this bath salt and would prefer using it as a foot soak.
Bare Necessities Terracotta
Body scrub
Ingredients - Organic Green Gram, Organic Gram Flour, Multani Mitti, Orange Peel Powder
This body scrub makes your skin so soft that you cannot keep your hands off your face and hands. Although the scrubbing effect offered by this body scrub is a but less than expected, I still lived using it because if the fresh orange peel fragrance. However I plan to use this as a face pack by adding turmeric and milk to it.
Overall am impressed with the hatke mission of the brand since what we need today is waste management. I was so inspired by the mission of this brand that when I made a coffee+ rose infusion oil I didn't throw away the Rose petals and coffee. Rather I made it into a scrub by adding oats to it and made a body scrub 😊😀. I would highly recommend you to try the brand.
