Natural organic products for bath body and home


Barenaturals, making a difference in the world with their natural organic products for bath, body and home


Darcey Croft Founder and CEO of Barenatural Candles and Organic Skincare Products


In the early days


While still studying as a student midwife, one of her research projects involved studying the effects chemicals (in particular Endocrine Disruptors) used in skincare and cosmetics products that have an effect on the unborn embryo.

Through her research, Darcey saw some disturbing effects with these Endocrine Disruptors that are still used in many skincare products.

Endocrine Disruptors are chemicals that mimic natural hormones within the body that can interfere or even block the way the body’s natural hormones are controlled.

They can have a drastic effect not just on adults and children but as Darcey saw on unborn embryos.

This can create a false reaction that can cause further problems in other areas of the body that can do more harm than good.

If you wish to read more specific details relating to the Endocrine Disruptors and how they can affect your body or even your child’s, you can find more here with The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

Up to 60% of toxic chemicals found in soaps, skin care and other cosmetic products can easily be absorbed via the skin and into the bloodstream.

Once they are in the bloodstream it can travel anywhere throughout the body that can affect and create some serious issues both outside the body and also from within.

What is even more disturbing is that young children absorb around 40 to 50% of such toxins faster than adults.

So image what this is doing to the unborn baby waiting to enter this world.


Time for change


Darcey realized that it was time for a change in the way skincare products should be.

After her finding with the research, Darcey began to create her own form of soaps and other skincare products that would not only be toxin free but would be natural and organic and blended with essential oils that only Nature could provide.

In 2012 while still studying as a Midwife and being a Mum a new journey began that would be greater than she possibly thought at the time.

Little did she realize how popular her products would become right to the point that her partner David (an engineer) chimed in and together started to gradually build up their side project as they called it.

In 2013 Barenaturals was born which is now a thriving business and making a solid impact on the world in more ways than one (more on this later).

To this day all their organic skincare products are still handmade at home.

Made in batches to preserve the true quality of their products, personally packaged upon completion then sent out around the world to customers who have found value in the superb products Barenaturals have produced.


Animal testing


No More Animal Testing


There are many skincare and cosmetic products purchased that not only contain many forms of toxic chemicals but also use animals in their product testing.

You would be surprised at how many well-known organizations are still testing on animals to this day some even get private contractors to test on their behalf.

As for their love of nature and animals, Barenaturals decided not to endorse or allow any products that deal with animal testing and only resource their ingredients mostly from local suppliers and trusted sources internationally like Australia for their Tea Tree Oil.

All Barenaturals products are also free of Toxic Chemicals.

World Friendly Candles


What if One opportunity could change your life


With their Best Soy Wax Candles, Barenaturals are beacons of light by helping to bring life back to lands once lost due to deforestation.

In 2016, Barenaturals introduced their soy scented wax candles that are now known as the World Friendly Candle.

Although both Darcey and David were doing well and still are with their range of handmade skin care, soaps and balm products they were disturbed by what was happening to the lands in other countries due to deforestation.

Both felt a huge hole had been created through the deforestation that has affected many local villages residing in some of the world’s poorest countries.

As a result of the deforestation many local villagers have suffered but also this creates a flow on effect to the ecosystem of the lands.

It is not just the loss of trees but also, animals, plant life and the people living in such areas many of whom are now struggling to make ends meet and living in poverty and famine.

Although Barenaturals can’t solve the whole problem deforestation have caused and created, they have started to make inroads in helping to resolve such issues with their idea of Wold Friendly Candles.

By partnering with The Eden Project, Barenaturals has become a beacon of light to the lands, animals, local villagers, and Nature itself.

For every world friendly candle sold, at least one tree is planted in lands once lost due to deforestation.




Thanks to Barenaturals and the Eden Project 2500 Mangrove Trees have already been planted along the banks of the Madagascar area since September 2016.

There is a lot more to do but what a great start.

In doing so this has helped to reduce flooding in the area that has threatened the local villagers since deforestation took place.

The increase in Mangrove Trees will also help the Madagascar fish eagle that normally lives around the mangroves.

These eagles have declined much due to deforestation and according to the WWF Global,  there are approximately 100 breeding pairs that have survived.

The Malagasy crayfish are another species that have declined however once again they will increase its population as the trees grow and stabilize the banks of the land.

Malagasy crayfish are a vital source of protein so beneficial to the people of the area many of whom are fighting famine and poverty due to deforestation.

These are just a few reasons why it is so important to not only plant trees back where they belong but will also help the wildlife thrive once more and in doing so help the people of the land survive and find some happiness in their lives.

Nature really needs those trees back in the land remember Trees provide oxygen for you to survive as well as for other life on the lands, in the air and in the water.

You have the power to help nature survive in these lost lands devoid of trees resulting in a loss of animal life some are near extinction.

Your support in purchasing the candles even just one will not only give you the best organic candles but you are also helping to bring back life to the lands, local villagers and other living species.

Barenaturals thank you very much for your continued and to others for their new support.

    Hi Andre,

    In our household, we’re big fans of these sorts of genuine organic products. I say “genuine” because so many so-called organic products are anything but. It’s just a cash grab.

    I’m pretty certain that my wife has ordered Barenaturals soaps in the past – I’m terrible at remembering this sort of thing, but the logo looks VERY familiar. If I’m right, then yes, I was really impressed by the products. There was no comparison between them and even the luxury brands available in supermarkets & drug stores.

    Keep up the great work!

    Best, al

    • Andre

      Thanks for the visit and comment Al 

      Yes I do agree there are some who state products are organic yet they add a few extra ingredients later. 

      Would be great to find out if your wife ordered them from Barenaturals they are based in England. 

      The other great part I love about Barenaturals is their World Friendly Candles where for each candle purchased a tree is planted in some of the poorest third world countries such as Haiti, Madagascar, Nepal and Ethiopia.  

      Many of the so called luxury brands contain toxic chemicals that can do much harm long term. I wrote a post on that as well showing some of the well known brands that not only contains such chemicals but also involved with animal testing.

      If you manage to find out from your wife which product was purchased would be wonderful to know.

      In the meantime wishing you the best in all you do in life for yourself and your wife.

      As Always


  • Amy

    Your pomegranate and pink grapefruit soap sounds absolutely wonderful. A hot chocolate candle? You get the happiness from hot chocolate without the calories – that’s brilliant! Where did you come up with the idea? I especially like that all the products are cruelty free and simply packaged to avoid waste. To have such nice beauty products without all the awful chemicals is refreshing.

    • Andre

      Hi Amy thanks for the visit and comment much appreciated. 

      I have to agree with you on such wonderful scents that are incorporated in the organic soaps. Love the idea with the Hot Chocolate with no calories.

       All the products listed are from Barenaturals and as you click on the image this will take you to their site where they can be purchased.

       As it is a British site the original price might show up in British Pounds but if you click the currency at the top right of their page you can choose various other countries of your choosing.

      Yes all the work from creating the skincare to hand pouring the scented candles are all done themselves and they also where possible package in simple and recycled materials as much as possible.

      Don’t forget for every candle purchased they ensure with The Eden Reforestation Project at least one tree is planted in areas of greatest need in some of the third world countries. 

      You can check out what and how the Eden Reforestation help the local villagers to not only learn how to create nurseries for future plants to be reintroduced into the lands but also how this helps to restore the Eco system as well. 

      Should you decide to purchase any of these products let me know how you found the products to be would love to received further feedback.

      Wishing you well 

      As Always 


  • Vandana

    WOW, that is scary about how the toxins can go into your bloodstream. I also had to stop using store bought products and started making all natural skin care myself. Your soaps look beautifully packaged and really good. Also, love that they are vegan and cruelty-free. Where can one buy?

    • Andre

      Hi Vandana, 

      Thank you for your comment and yes it is quite scary about many of these toxins. 

      I have written a couple of articles on another website regarding some of these toxins and what they can do. I am in the process of a new article on this website that will explain further the damages some can cause.

      As for purchasing these products you saw just click on any of the images and they will take you directly to Barenaturals site to purchase. 

      You can at the top right on their website changed the currency you normally deal with as well. 

      Should you decided to purchase any products let me know later how you feel about them always good to hear from customers their points of view on the products available. 

      Don’t forget for every candle you purchase you are also helping to plant a tree in areas of great need to some of the poorest countries in the world due to their reforestation project they are partners of.

      Wishing you well in all you do and also with your own products.

      As Always
