The Kitchen


Hey there, thanks for stopping by! I love my work, and I especially love helping people clean up their skin care products into healthy alternatives. Join me in the journey, and learn how plant based, toxin free skin care benefits you and your health!

I am super excited to share the process of how my products are created. To start, each Bare Naked Botanical product is formulated and created by hand in The Kitchen. The Kitchen contains a multitude of ingredients that are lovingly blended and created with healthful benefits to your skin, your body and the environment. Our products are sold in recyclable glass containers to prevent chemicals from leeching into the goodness of your product. 

As an Esthetician, I often reminded my customers that if they couldn't pronounce the name of the ingredient on a label, it probably wasn't good for them. See, I've been teaching people for more than 15 years to avoid harmful chemicals in skin care products. It's common knowledge now, that anything you put on your skin is in every organ of your body less than one minute after application (hence birth control, nicotine patches and other medications worn on the skin) 

With that said, I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to every client I ever made that statement to. Since I began formulating skin care products 2 years ago, I've learned that statement is not accurate. Many of the ingredients you'll see listed here aren't easy to pronounce, they look foreign and sound "unnatural." I assure you that each product was carefully selected based on the benefits to the skin, natural and harmless ranking through the Skin Deep website (Environmental Working Group). This is not an exhaustive list at this time, but it will surely grow over time to continue to enlighten you.

Please sign up for our newsletters, where I will spotlight different ingredients and their benefits in the future. In the meantime, enjoy a little light reading and feel confident that just because you can't pronounce it, doesn't mean it will hurt you!
