Our Story

Bare Addiction was born through the desire to create effective, safe and natural based skincare for the problems tweens, teens and twenty-somethings face every day.

The market is saturated with Teenage Skincare products that are either filled with harsh and synthetic ingredients or are fully organic and natural which failed to show results. So we decided to find the answer to one question... Can we achieve the best of both world’s, natural yet effective?

Nature & science =
gentle yet effective

Whilst Bare Addiction products are as natural as possible, organic or natural isn't the main deciding vote on whether to use an ingredient. Instead, we focus on the active ingredients that work against core young skin concerns to create Teenage Skincare that achieve gentle, safe and effective results.

Why Bare Addiction?

Using natural ingredients boosted with scientifically-proven active ingredients, the Bare Addiction range combats teen and young skin concerns with 3 factors in mind - clean, safe & effective.

Our formulas have been developed by leading and award-winning cosmetic scientists and leading London dermatologists. Our gentle, clean and safe formulations keep parents happy, while our result driven and effective ingredient choice keep Teens smiling.

As well as knowing which active ingredients to add to our formulas, we know what to keep away from. Our skincare will never use:

  • Irritating & abrasive elements
  • Drying Alcohols
  • Essential oils
  • Phthalates
  • SLS's & parabens

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple. We focus on four guiding principles to ensure our skincare range is effective, safe, clean and loved by our consumers:

  1. Combine the best of nature and science
  2. Reject ineffective ingredients
  3. Focus on what matters for our consumers
  4. Create a community focused on celebrating being yourself

That’s why we have created our bare promises to guarantee our products meet your expectations and our principles. We also focus on environmental and mental health initiatives - because what’s important to you, is important to us!

Our 100/100 Goal

  • To have all plastic packaging 100% recyclable and made from 100% recycled materials.

Mental health

While we’re helping young people and teens to get the best results on the outside, we recognise that staying healthy on the inside is infinitely more important. That’s why we also endeavour to focus on young people’s mental health.

To play our part and make a difference, we donate 10% of Bare Addiction’s profits to mental health organisations that work alongside young people and their support networks to assist people in need and raise awareness of the mental health challenges young people face.
