BareLUXE – Cruelty Free Skin Care

Green Beauty. Elevated.
bareLUXE elevates simple carrier oil blends into much more effective products using performance botanicals that work.

Why We Love this brand

bareLUXE makes sustainable, cruelty free skin care in Canada.

Their formulations are clean, vegan, and both Leaping Bunny and CertClean certified!

bareLUXE also actively avoids “Free From” advertising because they want to focus on the cruelty free skin care ingredients you can find in their products. They spend time explaining exactly why each ingredient is chosen and its purpose in the product. We think that’s really cool because there are no nasty ingredients, and they aren’t using fear tactics in their language. Just pure ingredients with good reason!

We Asked the brand...


The bareLUXE vision for sustainability is to push the plastic-free movement into the mainstream cosmetics industry. Advocacy, education, and activism are needed to challenge big brands to step up. Governments and municipalities need to be pushed to improve and develop their material-waste handling abilities. Novel materials like compostable films and biocomposite, microplastic-free polymers need to gain increased visibility and use. Indie beauty brands, like bareLUXE, can push this agenda forward.
