Our commitment to YOU
We had a dream to create a plant based organic skincare line to clean, moisturize and protect the most sensitive skin. Our goal is to meet the needs of your family at every stage using only the highest quality of pure and simple botanical elements sourced from nature. We are mama owned, ethically sourced and environmentally friendly.
Our commitment to Social issues:
We wanted to partner with like minded companies to create eco-friendly products that would also provide jobs for women in need.
We partnered with ABLE to make our gift bags. ( more about the bag.)
We fell in love with this company at the beginning of their journey when they sold handwoven scarves made by women in Ethiopia.
Founded in 2010 as a means to bring job opportunities to disadvantaged women and communities reliant on charity, ABLE began as
a single collection of scarves made by women in Ethiopia. ABLE has since become a fast-growing lifestyle brand while remaining focused on the company’s mission to employ and empower women who have often overcome extraordinary circumstances. The brand’s beautiful leather bags, handmade jewelry, denim, apparel and shoes are manufactured in the communities ABLE wishes to impact, both locally at the company’s headquarters in Nashville, T.N., and globally in Ethiopia, Mexico, Peru, and Brazil.

Our commitment to Humanity
We have dedicated a 1% giveback from our baby line to Baby2Baby. “A non-profit that provides low income children, ages 0-12 years, with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessitates that every child deserves.”
We have partnered with our friends at Bears for Humanity to create our “Bare Bear” and our organic Onesies.
Our Bears and Onesies are made from 100% organic cotton and are GOTS and Fair Trade certified. For every Bear and Onesie purchased Bears for Humanity donates a dollar to Baby2baby.
Our Ongoing Commitment:
We at Bāeo believe that change begins with us. We will continue to look for ways that our company can do better, be more eco-friendly, give back in a larger way, and provide more jobs to women who have not had the opportunities that we have.
We have been told it is not possible as a start up to have an eco-friendly brand with organic ingredients that gives back with both a social and economical mission. We want to prove that wrong.
We are Moms. We will do anything for our children and our families. We want to leave this world in better shape than we found it and we want to create something that gives a damn.
