Can you tell us a little about your background and where the inspiration came from for your business?

Marianne, is a wife and mother to two teenage daughters and lives in Airlie Beach, North Queensland. She feels right at home with the sand between her toes, sun on her skin and the salt water touching her soul. Having grown up in the Whitsunday’s majority of her life and a regular visitor to the Sunshine Coast, it’s no wonder she loves this fresh outdoor Queensland lifestyle, which has been the whole inspiration to Bare + Free’s formula and branding. Marianne created Bare + Free for two main reasons, to reduce her and her families intake of chemical filled products but to also encourage other young women/ladies to make the change to natural. After trialing several different brands she struggled to convert her daughters over. Miss 17 was a little keen to give it ago but Miss 14 was not interested at all “I am not putting that on my skin!” she said about one brand. Having previously owned a bath and body business, she used her experience and knowledge in raw ingredients to created a small tropical inspired batch to trial which was received with much more interest. From here Bare + Free was born… A fun, fresh, tropical inspired formula that not only works but smells and feels amazing taking natural deodorant to a whole new level.
