Our Story

Who is Behind Naked Actives?

Founded in 2016 in New Zealand, Naked Actives quickly expanded to the United States and established our first production line with a manufacturer in Arizona. Our products, made in Arizona, use sustainable and ethically sourced ingredients from top global producers.

Marcus Fuchs later acquired Naked Actives and grew it into a nationwide brand, shipping products globally, including to Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and remote Pacific islands. 

In 2023, Chris and Sarah purchased Naked Actives and are excited to continue expanding and reaching more customers worldwide.

 

Products 

Our bestselling product is our Vitamin C MAP. It is also the first product that we developed! Although our other products all sell well, our Vitamin C is a very effective product. We have had Estheticians, Dermatologists and folks making their own creams continuously tell us that they use our serums when they make their own products. We feel humbled and happy to hear that not only are people applying our products to their skin, but are using it to make other products. It is something that we never thought would happen. 

Our newest product, written about here, is about how our Lip Serum was developed.
