Together we can
Bare & Able.
A collection of handmade soaps supporting real women's personal struggle with mental health. Working in collaboration with the Soroptomists and Preston Guild Lodge, this charitable project is close to our hearts. All proceeds from sales support mental health charities and rehabilitation for women in need.
Starting off with naming, it was important to find something sensitive to the nature of the project but that also felt strong and wouldn't look out of place next to other cosmetics. Bare & Able fit the bill. Each soap was also named after a key stage of the recovery process by the women themselves - from Hope to Trust, Wisdom to Courage.
