On a mission to be the better brand

Bare Birch Soap Company is a small business on a mission to create simple, sustainable and non-toxic, self-care products that feed your skin, using only the best ingredients in nature.  

We’re sick of the toxic alternatives out there, not made in the best interest of us, or our planet. We want to be better than that. And, we want to share our better-made products with you!

Meet the maker

I’m Stacey Richter, Founder of Bare Birch Soap Company and maker of all things natural. I built this company out of necessity to provide my friends and family with all-natural alternatives to the everyday products we use the most. Here is where my journey to Bare Birch began…

I can’t recall a time when I didn’t struggle with pesky skin irritations like acne, eczema or even hives from time to time. 

And, in early 2017, it wasn’t just my skin that became a worry. Four years after the birth of my son Jase, I woke one morning feeling really unwell. My heart was racing; I felt nauseous, anxious, and fatigued; and to top it off, my hair began falling out at an alarming rate. 

I spent the next two years consulting with doctor after doctor, only to come up short on any type of explanation for my symptoms. Ten medical specialists later, I was finally diagnosed with a rare heart condition known as postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).

Over my two-year journey of searching for answers, I learned a lot about the impact—positive or negative—that different substances have on our body, and that what we apply to our skin is just as important as the food we eat.

Our skin is extremely porous and the chemicals found in many of today’s products can soak into our bloodstream, potentially harming our bodies' natural balances. 

Armed with this knowledge, and the passion to find healthy skin care alternatives derived from nature, Bare Birch Soap Company was born. 


Our all-natural standard 

Crafting 100% natural products is our way of life. It's at the core of everything we do, no exceptions. We define “natural” as simple, safe, and nourishing ingredients derived from mother earth. That means no additives or fillers, no dyes, and no toxic perfumes.

Plant-based, cruelty-free 

We mindfully create 100% cruelty-free products, made from a blend of natural plant-based oils that have only ever been tested on willing humans. Our recipes are free from palm oil, phthalates, sulphates, petroleums, and parabens, and completely vegan—with the exception of our Lip Butters and Honeycomb & Oats Soap, which infuses honey and beeswax for those with extremely dry skin.


Good for you and the environment 

Our products are created from natural ingredients derived from mother earth herself. That means there’s nothing in our recipes that will harm you or the environment. We responsibly package every product with sustainability in mind, using only recyclable, reusable, or compostable materials. Choose to buy your soaps “bare” and we’ll eliminate the packaging altogether. It’s one small step we can take together to reduce waste in our landfills and oceans.

Canadian made, quality first 

Every product is handmade in the heart of Canada: Ontario. We create our soap and lip butters in small batches so we can ensure the highest standard of quality. Wherever possible, we locally source ingredients to support our community and like-minded small businesses.
