All natural, vegan and cruelty-free meets punk rock, rebel minimalist! The first thing that comes to mind when looking at Bare Bones Body Care‘s branding and products. Isn’t it just the cutest?! The company was born after Monica, the founder and creator of Bare Bones, suffered with years of sensitive skin and allergic reactions.

She never knew what she was really putting on her body until she did the research…then quickly realized that an “all natural” label doesn’t usually refer to most of the ingredients inside; in fact, the labels tend to mention just one or two of them.

All products are vegan and not tested on animals.

Some of the products she makes are cleanser, toner, moisturizer and lip balm – and all in her kitchen! Monica promises:
