Bear's Beauty Basics : A collection of hand-crafted body and facial care products made with minimal ingredients, plant-based + nothing artificial, acne-friendly, for all budgets, and readily available in our shop, consistently.
WHAT THIS IS | A skin balancing acne serum made with a nourishing base of Omega 3-6-9 Fatty Acids to reduce the appearance of breakouts, smooth, reduce the appearance of redness, and calm excess oil and breakouts.
I have been making and specializing in Hemp Skincare since 2013! If you have tried the others, its time to try what works! Notice our lack of clear glass? Clear glass causes the already delicate Hemp Seed (Cannabis Seed Oil) and other botanicals to go rancid even faster! Cobalt or Violet glass is the only safe option for storing Cold-Pressed Oils. Rancid oils create free radicals, which are exactly what you want to combat with fresh, Organic, properly stored, Cold-Pressed oils! Be wary of anything Hemp or Cannabis packaged in clear glass or plastic.
SKIN TYPE | All - Sensitive - Acne - Dry - Mature - Oily - Hormonal - Congested - Combination
SPECIFIC SKIN CONCERNS | Breakouts, Clogged Pores, Acne, Acne Scarring, Post Acne Scarring, Hormonal Breakouts

WHAT'S "MISBEHAVING" ALL ABOUT?
I spent most of my life with acne. So, when I found a blend that worked to support and clear up my hormonal and cystic acne, I wanted to make it available to you in as many forms as possible. So, no matter if you have a cleanser you love or a serum you can't live without, there is a Bear's Beauty Misbehaving Face formula that will fit in your routine. You can use them all together or just add one or two Misbehaving items into your already existing routine.
Not just for acne. anyone with skin that just misbehaves. A bit about the essential oil blend. http://bearsbeauty.blogspot.com/2018/03/misbehaving-skin-what-it-is-to-bears.html
CHOOSING THE BEAR'S ACNE SOLUTION FOR YOU
Light Misbehaving Facial Serum : The most sensitive of the sensitive, very minimal breakouts, teens, tweens, mature sensitive skin with acne. This is a great place to start, especially if you are nervous about using oil or essential oils on your skin. Safe for AM + PM use.
Misbehaving Facial Serum : This is my original acne serum and over the last several years, has benefited many many skin types and acne issues. This serum was what cleared my skin, and is my go-to for anyone who asks me what to try for acne. Made to be used alone or with other Bear's products. Safe for AM + PM use.
Extra Strength Misbehaving Face Serum : All the benefits of our Original Misbhaving Face Serum, but with added fruit-based AHA and Willow Bark BHA. AHA helps encourage smoother skin, can speed cell turnover, and reduce the appearance of acne, scars, and fine lines. BHA helps break down the gunk in your pore. Use PM only, AHA should be used at night and along with SPF as it can make you more prone to sunburn.
Start with Misbehaving Face Serum unless you know you have very sensitive skin when it comes to essential oils or trying new things, then go with Light.
This plays well with others, while I do think it is best to use only natural products, you can add this serum to any routine you are already using.
INGREDIENT SHOWCASE | Organic Hemp Seed Oil + Organic Red Raspberry Seed Oil Nourish and reduce the appearance of inflammation
The proprietary essential oil blend addresses acne holistically, to address multiple types of acne and other skin concerns. We have been making Organic Hemp Skincare since 2013. Our essential oil blends, serums, and formulas are closely guarded. They have taken years to perfect. There are innumerable copycat products on the natural and especially hemp market. What sets us apart is our experience, quality, and proven track record of truly effective and honestly natural skincare. We do not use sensitizing essential oils or hormone distruptors. Many essential oils like Lavender and Tea Tree are the standard for acne, but they are also being looked at as hormone distruptors. I have done tons of research on herbalism and chemistry. This is not a copy of an existing product, a twist on an online DIY, or my version of something. This is totally 100% crafted from the ground up from the formula that healed my skin.
FORMULATION CALL-OUTS | Vegan | Plant-Based | Naturally Preserved | PH Balanced | Made with Organic Ingredients | Non Acnegenic | Non Comedogenic | Handmade | Mixed + Stored + Packaged in Glass | Non Sensitizing | Made in USA | Ethically Sourced | Oil Free
^*Red Raspberry Seed Oil, *^Hemp Seed Oil, *Sea Buckthorn Extract, *Rosemary Extract, *Sunflower Oil and Proprietary Essential Oil Blend
Cleanse skin with mild cleanser, like Cleansing Oil.
Mist skin with Hydrosol or Aloe Vera, applying oils over a water-based hydrator helps the serum absorb deep into the skin and seal in moisture.
Apply 4-5 drops to hands, pray them together to evenly distribute between palms, gently press into damp skin. OR Drop one drop on your forehead + cheeks + nose + chin.
This can be your last step, or you can apply a facial oil or balm after 3-5 minutes, once the serum is absorbed.
When using this serum, you should not use along with retinol. You also need to wear SPF.
Ideal storage for all water-based serums, facial products with water, and even oil cleansers is in a cool and dark place, refrigeration is preferred.
While I do formulate products to be potent even when stored at room temperature, there is natural degradation that occurs at room temperature. I store all my products cold, and when I am not actively using a serum or cleanser, I pop it in the “Skincare Drawer.”
Sprays, serums, and creams with water do best kept at the very least out of direct sunlight, but the fridge will extend freshness. Masks also do better kept in the fridge. Balms, Butters, Deodorants, and Toothpaste all do fine at room temperature.
Bear’s Beauty is made with the finest Cold-Pressed Botanical Oils, Essential Oils, Hydrosols, Organic Fruits and Vegetables. I use minimal preservatives based in Probiotic and Fermented Kimchee to create safe products. That being said, this is food-grade skincare, and it will go bad. I recommend storage of your products in the fridge, in general. If you are taking a break from a product and you feel you won’t use it at least once a week, place it in the fridge. If you are using a cream or a hydrosol every day and you don’t like getting it from the fridge, it is totally fine to leave it in your bathroom, out of direct sunlight.
FRESH + HANDMADE MATTERS
With the natural beauty, hemp, and CBD industry growth; there are a lot of choices on the market. It can be hard to wade through the hype. So, I want to talk to you as a formulator about why I choose Organic and Cold-Pressed Oils for my skincare as well as my personal use and cooking.
LOTS of brands throw in a dash of hyper-processed hemp oil and call a product "hemp." We use copious amounts of Organic Cold-Pressed Hemp Seed Oil, between 10-100%, but never just a few drops as an afterthought.
Fresh Hemp Seed Oil is very green, bordering on emerald. It smells slightly nutty and grassy. Hemp seed oil that has gone rancid is yellow or brown and has a slightly fishy smell. I tell you this, because hemp products should either be very green and smell fresh, or slightly colored from other ingredients and fresh smelling. It should never smell bad. The unfortunate reality is, many brands hopped on the bandwagon of hemp and didn't understand the delicate oil.
Our Organic Hemp Seed Oil is sourced from Canada and stored cold. Products are made fresh, within weeks of ordering, and typically, made to order. This cold storage and fresh mixing ensures you get all the beneficial properties of the oil possible. Organic Hemp Seed Oil, alone, without any CBD or other oils added, is amazing for skin. When choosing any skincare, consider not only the ingredients, but the quality and the quantity.
Each and every ingredient is sourced and stored mindfully. Even down to our bottles. I know clear bottles look good on social media, but clear glass acts like a magnifying glass to the cold-pressed oils. Blue and Violet Glass bottles block out harmful UV rays and assure you get the most out of your skincare. But hey, anywhere possible, I use clear glass.
WHY MOST ITEMS ARE PACKAGED IN GLASS + CARDBOARD
The industry is set up for plastics. Most things, deodorant tubes specifically only come in plastic. While we wait for the industry to catch up and start using hemp plastic, we o offer some items (like three) in plastic. Everything else comes in glass or cardboard. We are constantly working to reduce waste, our carbon footprint, and reuse as much as possible. We choose to buy packaging new, but do recycle your used jars into candles when they come back to us.
Glass does not degrade or leach, and as much as I thought I would break ten million bottles; I think I am at maybe 20 all total in the last almost decade of making creations. The glass is stronger than you think. If anything, dropper tops cause a surprising number of mishaps.
Plastic is killing our planet. I figure, the least we can do is find a way to take care of our skin and the Earth. So, we use glass, cardboard, and recyclable plastic.
I am a purist. I believe in the fewest number of ingredients to work together synergistically for maximum effect. I not only source the finest botanical and mineral ingredients from around the world, but I store them cold and make them fresh just for you. I believe in transparency and innovation, constantly seeking to offer the best Mother Nature has to offer with empirical support. I love research and feel that the tangibility of university studies helps to shed some light on previously esoteric topics. I also encourage customers to do their own research, as I believe everyone has unique skin needs and interactions with ingredients. I formulate from the heart, drawing on years of herbal and cosmetic formulation knowledge, a little magic, and a desire to better the lives of those around me. I make skincare with soul from the heart and I am so thankful for the opportunity to share these creations with you.
WHY WE AREN'T LIKE OTHER BRANDS
I have several auto-immune disorders, acne-prone sensitive skin, migraines, PCOS, and lost someone I love to chemical-induced lymphoma. I do not use ingredients that are synthetic, possibly carcinogenic, hormone disruptors, or a host of other ingredients. We avoid comedogenic ingredients and do further acne-safe testing, so all our formulas are acne safe. I am honest to a fault before I am dishonest on a listing or label. What we put on our skin should be as pur as what we eat and I believe that to my core. Anything short of that, is contributing to the problem. We don't use ingredients that can build up in the body and if we do, we tell you.

Many items are composed of delicate floral waters and botanical oils. Keeping your items in the fridge and away from direct light will greatly extend the life of the product. This is especially true for Hydrosols + Cremes + Cold Creams + Sprays + Butters (in the summer they may become liquid) + Coconut (Coconut becomes liquid at 76 degrees) + Cremes. I use Radish Root Ferment, a widely used natural preservative, but keeping your items cool + away from light will give you more time to use + love them. Oil-based serums should be stored away from direct light and refrigerated if you will not use within 4 months.
