Business Type :

Small businesses make the world go ’round, and sometimes they can even help make it a healthier place. For the first installment of our Spotlight Series, we interviewed the founder of a company who is doing exactly that, one bar of soap at a time.

Founded in 2012, b.a.r.e. soaps creates gorgeous soaps, candles, and bath bombs using all natural, sustainably sourced ingredients. They are also dedicated to building long-term sustainability and health programs for children and women abroad, including Kaberamaido, Uganda and the Kalwa slum in India.

Check out our interview with founder Jessie Yoh to learn more about b.a.r.e. soaps and the unique challenges she faced as a new business owner trying to get her company off the ground while doing good around the world.
