Meet the Creator
My name is SarahAnn Goldnau-Vogt, the creator, owner and primary manufacturer behind Charcoal & Rose Petals.
After completing my degree in bio- and physical-chemistry, my company was born by chance through a love for DIY projects and a passion for learning and creation.
As I experimented with creating my own body-care products I realized just how little we actually know about the products we put on our skin everyday and their ingredients. I wanted to create a line of products for myself, and those around me, that I could feel comfortable and confidant putting on my body without having any fears of unknown ingredients or harsh chemicals.
Our selection of products is constantly evolving – one of the beauties of being a small-scale operation – and I love trying out new ingredients and formulas. All recipes are original and we strive to source ingredients from Canadian-based companies, as supporting and shopping from local companies is important to me.
All ingredients used in my products are all natural, from the colorants used in the soaps to the essential oils in creams and salves. One of my favorite tricks is infusing oils with botanicals to extract their natural colors, aromas and healing properties.
All soaps are vegan, as well as many of our other products! I also don’t sell any single-use plastics. All products that require containers come in beautiful glass jars or metal containers – which I encourage you to reuse after finishing the product.
Charcoal & Rose Petals is operated by a 100% woman-run team. Employing women in my community for honest work for fair pay has always been a huge aspiration of mine, and it's thanks to all of your support that it is slowly coming true. Your support means the world to me and my team, so thank you.
I’m excited to share my passion for beautiful, hand-made, all natural products with you!
