Our Story

Bear and Kind is a homegrown Australian pet care brand launched in 2020 to give pawrents natural and gentle skin and coat care product options for their furbabies.

​The 'Bear' comes from our product testers and resident cuddle bears (otherwise known as Murray River Retrievers), Mila, Hattie and Uncle Bear. It's also a nod to the natural simplicity of our products and the things you won't find in them (bare). The 'Kind' refers to the use of only natural and organic ingredients, being gentle on sensitive skin, and being as sustainable and kind to the planet as possible.

The entire range is plant-based, vegan friendly, and handmade right here on our little farm in the tiny town of Barkly (no pun intended) in the beautiful mountains of the Pyrenees Ranges in country Victoria, Australia.

Our primary ingredients are fair trade and certified organic, or grown organically (100% chemical-free) by local producers. We use only certified organic botanicals, oats and fresh produce (such as banana and carrot) for added goodness, and add pure essential oils for their natural scent and other benefits to the skin and coat. Our products are strictly free of chemical nasties including synthetic fragrances and preservatives, SLS, parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals, palm oil and the like. We test our products on humans first, and avoid any ingredient that is tested on animals. Oh... they're also 100% non-toxic, so they are safe if your pupper licks them at any time.

We're also fussy when it comes to our packaging. We pride ourselves on being plastic-free... using 100% biodegradable Kraft paper packaging wherever possible, recycled paper product labels, and paper-based post packs, fill and cartons.
