Meet the Creator

Hey there!

I'm SarahAnn Goldnau-Vogt, the heart and soul behind Charcoal & Rose Petals. Today, I want to take you on a journey into the world of our small but mighty company, where passion, science, and creativity collide.

It all began after I earned my degree in bio- and physical-chemistry. With a deep love for DIY projects and an insatiable thirst for knowledge, Charcoal & Rose Petals was born almost by chance. As I delved into crafting my own body-care products, I became acutely aware of how little we truly understand about the products we slather onto our skin daily, and the mysterious ingredients lurking within them.


My mission was clear: I wanted to create a line of products not only for myself but also for all those who yearned for skincare they could trust, free from unknown additives and harsh chemicals.


Our product lineup is ever-evolving, a testament to the beauty of being a small-scale operation. I relish the opportunity to experiment with new ingredients and formulations, all while striving to source from Canadian-based companies, because supporting local has always been close to my heart.


At Charcoal & Rose Petals, every ingredient we use is au naturel, from the colorants in our soaps to the essential oils in our creams and lotions. We make everything from raw ingredients so we can be sure there’s no unknowns mixed in at any point.


Our signature soaps are proudly vegan, scented and coloured with only pure natural additives. Our products are elegantly packaged in reusable glass jars and metal containers, urging you to give them a second life.


What makes Charcoal & Rose Petals truly special is that we're powered by a woman-lead team. Empowering women in my community with honest work and fair wages has always been a dream of mine, and it's your unwavering support that's making this dream a reality. Your support means the world to me and my team, and for that, we are endlessly grateful. 


I'm thrilled to invite you into the world of Charcoal & Rose Petals, where we pour our hearts into creating beautiful, hand-crafted, all-natural products. Thank you for being a #PetalPrincess!  


With love and petals,

SarahAnn Goldnau-Vogt
