About Us | our mineral skincare story

It was our California anniversary getaway weekend. I wanted to be fun and flirty.

Instead, I felt like ripping my armpits out. I had a raging rash and NOTHING would fix it. The pain provoked me to quit shaving and ditch deodorant. Definitely not romance in the air.

In a flash of desperation, I thought of zinc oxide to calm it and researched everything I could find on it.

I was instantly hooked and wanted those amazing ions in all my skincare. 

After several starts, stops and stalls, I finally emerged with the best skin barrier cream that was plant-based and powered by zinc oxide.

Bedrock was born.

As a mom, I can't live without Bedrock skin protectant and find endless ways to use it:  anti redness, irritated skin on face, shaving bumps, ingrown hair solution, rash on bikini line, uneven skin tone, super dry skin, itchy butts, cracked lips, dehydrated skin, cracked feet, rough skin, PMS pores, bug bites, and more.

I’m not your typical beauty maven or cosmetics connoisseur and it’s better that way.

Zinc is our all-star and I’m just the talent agent.
