BARR COSMETICS- The Beauty of Minimalism

BARR COSMETICS- The Beauty of Minimalism

BARR is a South Korean cosmetics brand that follows the minimalism approach when it comes to making quality, sustainable and effective products. In real life, minimalism helps to make life less stressful by owning only important stuff and living simply because many of us are over-stressed, overworked, overwhelmed.

Avoiding too many unnecessary things helps one to focus on themselves by only prioritizing essential things. Although living such a life may not be as easy, small actionable steps always reflect in the right way. Minimalists love beauty, efficiency and elegant simplicity

Skincare is not very different from our real-life since using so many unnecessary ingredients does not help. This is the main reason why BARR embarks on creating products which are clean and feel luxurious, but are truly composed of simple honest ingredients.

Minimalism is the number one philosophy that drives BARR to make high quality and effective products. However, several other philosophies and standards have pushed these products to another level and become universally accepted. 

The philosophy of BARR Cosmetics

Minimalism- These products contain only the required ingredients that your skin needs to be healthy and young. This philosophy has helped the company produce effective and sustainable products by concentrating only on the important ingredients.

Authenticity and transparency: BARR uses transparent ingredients, and they also write straightforward descriptions. This is because they like promoting effective, smart, and simple regime for a sustainable minimalistic life.

Clean Beauty- All BARR products are mindfully created without any toxic ingredients such as synthetic fragrances. The ingredients are sourced in an ethical way to protect the environment and achieve healthy skin at the same time. The green packaging alone is enough evidence to show what BARR is about.

Cruelty-Free & Vegan- This brand has been certified by PETA for making vegan and cruelty-free products. All the ingredients are sourced from the plants; hence BARR does not condone animal testing.

Sustainability- BARR products are packaged in 100% recyclable packaging.
