Each Bare Touch product is organic, both by definition and in practice.

We use certified organic ingredients. We buy Australian grown wildcrafted plants and we also grow our own herbs using certified organic soil and seeds.
Because we use all three categories of plants, we cannot use the ‘certified organic’ term on our products.

We do not use any artificial chemicals, not even as a preservative or an emulsifier. Honestly, there is no need.


Organic describes things that are natural or related to nature. In common usage, organic is used to mean “healthful” or “close to nature.” It means plants grown without artificial pesticides or fertilisers.

Herbs that are Certified Organic indicate that there are no synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilisers, herbicides, GMOs, synthetic chemicals, growth agents or other chemicals used. The plants are also free from irradiation and chemical sterilisation which involves the utilisation of certain chemicals, mostly chlorine, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, quaternary ammonium salts and ETO.

Wildcrafting (also known as foraging) is the practice of harvesting plants from their natural or wild habitat, primarily for food or medicinal purposes. It applies to uncultivated plants wherever they may be found and is not necessarily limited to wilderness areas.

They are not farmed or otherwise manipulated with extra watering or fertiliser but must endure drought, flood, insect and animal predation, and compete with weeds. Unlike commercially or organically grown plants, wildcrafted plants are completely on their own.
As is the case with humans, a certain amount of stress is beneficial. Wildcrafted plants have developed strategies to fight off insects, handle changing environmental conditions and sequester vital nutrients and enzymes to help ensure their own survival. Once harvested, they usually offer more in terms of health benefits and nutrients.


Human skin absorbs very quickly and a lot of what is applied to it.

Some will argue that this is not necessarily correct but try applying something evidently harmful and see how long you need to wait for your skin to react.

Skin and hair should benefit from personal cosmetics.
When using a cosmetic, we are seeking an improvement. When using a cosmetic for a prolonged period, we would like to expect the improvement to be long term.
It  seems logical that we would be using only what is good and healthy for the skin. Is there a point of applying a chamomile cream for example where the amount of chamomile is minimal and majority of the composition is full of synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilisers and genetically modified? Not to mention 100% lab made chemicals to hold it all together.

Fortunately, by law every ingredient needs to be listed so it is up to us to change the trend. We can read and choose. I hope you will choose well.
