Our team

Abigail Gibson-Wass

Abigail is the founder and CEO of Bare Native, created because of the results from her own microbiological research of natural marine waste materials, and formulating a patent-pending cleaning technology that makes such waste materials completely free of microbes to ensure it meets the high standards to obtain food and cosmetic grade certification. Abigail’s passion was to find a completely natural cleaning process that would pose no harm on the surrounding environment and use minimal energy consumption. Abigail has since gone on to form a team of highly experienced industry professionals within science, commercial and strategy roles.
