OUR PURPOSE

THE POWER OF GOOD

At bareMinerals, our mission goes beyond makeup. We’re here to help people feel good about themselves and their impact in the world. That’s why we create clean, conscious beauty that’s good to your skin, good for the community and good to the planet.

Look Good

What sets our clean skincare and makeup apart is that it’s tested, proven to perform and actually improves your skin. We’re also 100% cruelty-free — always have been, always will be.

Feel Good

We’re passionate about helping people feel good. We inspire confidence by creating products you can trust — there’s no need to compromise on performance or ingredients — and by sharing skincare, makeup and artistry that are truly approachable. Everyone is welcome in our global barebeauties community; it’s an inclusive space for people to share looks, make connections and start conversations.

Do Good for People

Giving back is at the heart of our brand. In April 2019, we started The Power of Good Fund by bareMinerals to support women’s empowerment. Our focus is education, as girls who receive equal access to education go on to earn higher incomes, have a voice in making decisions that affect them, and are more likely to lead healthier lives.
