As young fitness enthusiasts, we grew up on commercial brand protein powders. Sold by their flashy marketing and superstar endorsements, we bought it all - from pre-workouts, to the “get massive 5000” tubs. In ignorance, we fed the industry that was doing far more harm than good.
In 2010, everything changed. Aware of the rubbish that was in virtually all commercially available protein blends, we needed an alternative. And so Ryan began to create. Crafting a rough version of our Raw Cacao WPI in his kitchen from ingredients purchased online, the flavour and purity of his creation astounded both himself and Oscar.
Oscar insisted that this blend needed to be shared with the world, and so the Bare Blends revolution began.
Built to change the nutritional food supplement status quo, Bare Blends was created to open people's eyes to the pure flavours and raw power of natural wholefoods, while offering complete transparency.
Now & The Future
Since the initial WPI blends, Bare Blends has expanded to include the highest-quality nutritional powders and superfoods, including our Bare Essentials superfood range and freeze-dried nutritional powders. We’re constantly experimenting with new and exciting ingredients in the Bare Blends kitchen to create more innovative blends that deliver on both performance and taste.
We only have one planet. We need to nurture it for future generations. Organic farming does not only produce more delicious and nutritious ingredients, it also nourishes the earth for future farming. We choose to support the environment by ensuring our superfoods have been grown in organic farms or wild crafted such as our Gubinge collected by the Nyul Nyul people in the Kimberley.
The origins of Ryan's love of food may sprout from his earliest memories involving day-long cooking festivities with his family, resulting in a lifelong passion in the kitchen. His zest for nutritious recipe creation and organic ingredients is matched by a keen understanding of the rapidly developing technology used at Bare Blends.
Oscar’s lust for nutrition and wellness began in his early years when his mother would force him to consume Spirulina and fish oil capsules. Subliminally, he took the nutritional force feeding, and twisted it into a living passion that complemented his thirst for physical exercise.
After being one of the first customers of the Bare Blends, Chris joined the team as a marketing intern in 2013

mundane executive tasks. Since then, he has forged an integral role within Bare Blends, driven by improving
people's health through nutrition.
