Profile: Prisca, baresop.

baresop. is a modern day, zero waste personal care startup that keeps your body clean, and your conscience too.

Meet the founder, Prisca Ongonga-Daehn.

A couple of years ago, Prisca found herself frustrated trying to find an easy solution to reduce her body care single use plastic waste. She began on a path to explore why there were no simple and easy to use solutions.

Having conversations with customers, she found out that most people were just as frustrated as she was.

Prisca spent almost a year in search of an answer, and was surprised to discover that water content in body care products make it necessary for them to be packaged in single use packaging.

She then researched how to innovate a waterless solution that’s kinder on our skin and the planet. The result is a plant-based hand and body powder concentrate delivered in a certified compostable sachet. Hello, baresop.!

How does it work?

Step One: Grab a bottle with a foaming pump and add 300ml of warm water to it.
Step Two: Tip in the contents of one sachet, close and shake for 30 seconds.
Step Three: Your hand wash is ready to use!

We think this is a super product.

As for Prisca's superpower?

"I am by nature a ‘dreamer and a doer’ - not much of a follower. Being part of the baresop. founding team allows me to do what l love which is ultimately to innovate solutions and experiences that create an impact."

"I'm looking forward to being able to have an app that saves me time on admin and financial management that, honestly, I don't want to be doing!

If Thrive can give me back time to focus on my product and customer, I will be forever grateful."

We think small business owners are superheroes.
