FAQs – Bare Essentials



  • Do you ship internationally?
    Unfortunately, at this time, we do not ship internationally. We ship throughout the United States only.
  • Can I use your soap on my face? 
    In our handmade soaps, there are no harsh detergents or ingredients used as you would usually find in commercial soaps. Our soaps have natural oils, raw butters, as well as glycerin to help moisturize your skin. Everyone's facial sensitivity to bar soap is different. We recommend you read the ingredients label carefully and use at your discretion. 
    • As with any product that touches our skin, please discontinue use if irritation develops. Any product, even when made with the most natural, gentle ingredients can be irritating to certain sensitive individuals.
  • How long does your soap last? 
    We recommend using our soaps within 3-6 months of purchase to experience the scents of the essential oils infused in each bar at its peak. 
    Everyone uses soap differently and has a household of different sizes, so this will factor in on how long one bar last after the initial use. 
    • Rubbing the soap directly on your skin will cause the bar to melt away faster. We recommend using a washcloth instead. Also, another way to ensure a long-lasting bar is using a soap dish that will allow your bar to drain and stay dry in between uses. 
  •  Do you have a storefront? I'd like to shop in person.
    We are an online-based store, but our bars can also be found on the shelves at the following stores:
