A Little About Me
Hello, I'm Kimberly Peterson, founder and chief skin food creator at Bare Naked Botanicals. I'm a former Esthetician and business owner who enjoys teaching, creating and educating about the benefits of food for the skin. Ten years of hands on people's faces and recommending organic, whole food skin care products has culminated in the creation of Bare Naked Botanicals' products. It's been a true blessing to see improved lives and health, mine included! Join us in this wholesome adventure you won't regret! If you need help with your challenged skin and want a consultation about what would work best for you, give me a call or email me.
What if you had the ability to help reverse problems with your own skin? If you could determine the underlying causes of your skin condition, whether it's eczema, severely dry skin, acne, oiliness, rosacea, wrinkles or dark spots and then make noticeable improvements? I asked those very same questions more than 15 years ago moments after I stuck my face in a vat of warm paraffin for my excruciatingly dry skin. I just knew there had to be better options than the lame products I bought at the drug store and the often over priced products I purchased at the cosmetic counter which still offered me little comfort in the way of proper hydration. That experience was what prompted my journey into Esthetics and alternative organic skin care. Two years ago, after thousands of hours of research and many years of working one-on-one with many different skin types, I formulated and created my very first vegan skin care product. It's my hope that the products I create will help you to achieve the healthy skin you crave. Let's talk!
Thoughts & Quality
We believe that what you put on your skin goes more than skin deep. Which is why we are committed to keeping our products free of anything that doesn’t come straight from nature. Feed it...only good stuff and avoid those yucky chemicals. If you can't eat it, don't wear it!
You'll never find Parabens, Propylene Glycol or any derivative, Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, chemical solvents or other nasty stuff in Bare Naked Botanicals' products. We don't think you need to compromise products that really work for high priced petro garbage.
When formulating my products, my first priority is to find ingredients which have little chance of being contaminated by chemicals, genetically modified ingredients and contain the highest vitamin and antioxidant content to maximize the benefits to the skin and body. Water is a large percentage of most skin care products. I believe water is good for you, but you'll seldom find it standing alone in my products. What a waste of space! Instead I often substitute this portion with distillates from plants, fruit or herbs, aloe vera leaf juice, tea and/or infused water.
Each handcrafted vegan product is designed with a purpose and a particular skin type in mind. Ingredients are carefully selected based on factors like oily vs dry, whether a skin condition will be addressed, or a particular ingredient(s) will be highlighted. Each ingredient is then placed into the Environmental Working Group's web search program to determine it's safety. I strive for "0" on the hazard scale, which represents zero chance it's bad for you or the environment. Some ingredients, such as natural occurring fruit acids or enzymes, will be higher on their scale due to it's skin sensitizing affect on the skin making the user more prone to sunburn. With age and skin conditions like acne, exfoliation with a fruit acid or enzyme is safe and very effective. The chance of complications with the use of these types of exfoliation can be lessened by using exfoliating products at night and wearing a sunscreen during the day.
As my grandmother used to say, "Sometimes less is best," and I have to agree. Great skin is achieved through good nutrition, drinking lots of water, and skin care products that feed your skin. Labels with vast numbers of ingredients don't always add up to better. It's my goal to share with you the benefits of my products, keeping the ingredients to a minimum, making it easier and more affordable to achieve your healthy skin goals.
Less is often best when it comes to skin ravaged by itching, redness, eczema, sensitivity, and allergies. If you would like a personal consultation about what products would work best for you, call or send an email. I'd love to help put you on the path to healthier more happy skin!
