Faith. Patience. Perseverance.

My Journey: From Faith to Purpose
Hi there! I'm Ingrid, the founder and owner of Barehouse Brand. As a loving wife, a proud mom of three grown children, and four (4) fur babies; family means the world to me. But above all, my love for God comes first!
This is more than a business to me. It’s a spiritual journey. A journey deeply rooted in my relationship with the Lord. This connection gave me strength when I faced life's hard trials head-on.
So, why am I doing this?
Well, I used to struggle with severe adult acne, and my quest to find a solution led me to understand the importance of washing our makeup brushes. Soon after I started this new skin care routine, I noticed my skin healing and I was excited to share this news with others. This experience inspired me to develop a brush soap that was free from harmful chemicals and fragrances.
But Barehouse Brand goes far beyond the typical beauty brand. It's a celebration of TRUTH, family, love, hope, and the remarkable resilience within us all.
2 Timothy 1:7 says, “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
My path took an unexpected turn when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis several years ago. It was a true test of my faith; but it was from this challenging space that Barehouse Brand was born.
In November 2020, during an exhausting and frustrating MS relapse, I experienced firsthand the difficulties of simple everyday tasks like combing my hair and applying makeup. This opened my eyes to the need for improved adaptive tools for the disabled community. It became clear that many people face similar challenges every day. The Lord then ignited a fire in me and I was determined to take action and find solutions to these overlooked problems.
The HandyBand, came to life after facing the daily battles of MS. It's a tribute to empowerment for those with weakened hands - providing style along with practicality.
Suds and Scripture emerged from a growing vision to spread God's word through our beauty products; offering a chance to experience the divine while caring for your physical well-being.
Barehouse Brand is dedicated to designing and creating beauty and wellness tools that make our daily routines easier. Our mission is to serve God so He can help us serve our community.
I'm excited to embark on this journey with you, finding creative ways to empower and uplift, while also providing you with high quality and well researched products. Together, we'll uncover and discover beauty within us all, even amidst life's toughest challenges.
This is not just my story; now it's OUR story!
In the spirit of spreading God's message of love, hope, and faith, we've created a space where you can share inspiring, empowering, and fun “beauty" and “Faith Journey” stories. We're always looking for people who want to join us in sharing.
At Barehouse Brand, we want you to know that you have a place to turn when the "simple" isn't always so simple.
I’m grateful for this opportunity to share my story and passion with you and to bring you products that are always made from the heart.
Without God, none of this would be possible, so to Him I give the Glory!
