our story

Sarah (Owner) Sitting in grassy field during golden hour of sunset.

Hi there, I’m Sarah! I started studying Herbalism in 2016 as a way to better my knowledge about the earth around me and how I could utilize plants more in my everyday life - specifically, for measures of internal and external health. After dedicating time to explore herbs and create my very own personal line of tinctures (that I still swear by daily!) I wanted to expand my herbal knowledge into skincare and haircare.

At the time, I had already been exploring clean beauty and low waste products as a way to slow my consumption and lower my contribution to today’s overflowing landfills and I thought, this is something I could do for myself! Thus, my first shampoo bar was born!

My pride and joy was definitely far from perfect the first time around. But after reformulating (a few times), trial and error (many times) and plenty of constructive criticism, The SHAMPOO Bar found its place in the Pearl & Moss product line-up.

Choosing the path of entrepreneurship and developing Pearl & Moss wasn’t always my dream. Turns out, I found something I loved (herbalism and nature based products) and something I was good at (soap making) and turned a much-loved hobby into a business, jumping in with both feet. Continuing in my studies of organic skincare formulation and performing non-stop research has allowed me to grow this brand into something much more than soap.

I hope you tag along on my journey to see what exciting stops we can make along the way in our adventures of formulation, and hopefully you’ll fall in love with my passion as much as I have!
