Barefoot SOS Botanicals brings the most effective, award-winning natural results to your skin. Barefoot Botanicals' name was inspired by the ancient Chinese tradition of barefoot doctors who travelled from village to village without shoes, dispensing wisdom and remedies. Developed over 20 years ago by two homeopaths (Jonathan Stallick and Hilery Dorrian) with a passion for natural remedies and extensive knowledge of healing plants, Barefoot SOS had the perfect basis for a range of naturally powerful remedies, organic haircare and skin products for the 21st Century. Using only the finest natural ingredients, hand-picked by experts, Barefoot SOS' success lies in their advanced formulations, combining cutting-edge science with a thousand years of herbal wisdom.
Brighton-based licensed homeopathic practitioners Jonathan Stallick and Hilery Dorrian established Barefoot SOS in 1998. Failing to find an all-natural and petrochemical-free remedy product to treat head lice, the team created an all-botanical formula they brewed in Dorrian's home kitchen, which proved so effective that it became widely recommended by London's natural health practitioners, and so the Barefoot brand was born. Today, this passion for the healing power of plants has led to two leading ‘Save Our Skin’ natural ranges, Dry + Sensitive which contains a nurturing complex of active botanical extracts to soothe eczema-prone skin and Repair +Renew, a range of rejuvenating Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Seed Oil products for mature or rosacea-prone skin.
Barefoot SOS pride themselves on being the experts in combining the highest quality blend of naturally pure ingredients and active botanical extracts to bring the most effective results to challenged or uncomfortable skin. Packed with natural skin goodness, the Dry + Sensitive range uses 28 natural actives including soothing Stellaria, smoothing Macadamia Oil and nourishing Evening Primrose Oil. The Repair + Renew range uses 29 natural actives including regenerating Rosehip Seed Oil, moisturising Argan Oil and calming Mallow. All products are free from paraffin, parabens, SLS, as well as artificial colours and fragrances. Each product is formulated to be as gentle as possible, ensuring they are suitable for all ages.
