Pamoja is a Swahili word which means ‘together’ – inspired by my Tanzanian heritage.
Hi, I'm Sarah, trained natural skincare formulator and founder of Pamoja. I know your time is precious and like me, you want to live your life, doing what you love.
I'm here to help you to nourish your skin and nurture yourself with high performing natural skincare.
During a career break to be a full-time Mum, I experienced severe skin sensitivities. My skin was overwhelmed and I was too. I couldn't find products that worked so I began to make them myself. High performing natural ingredients nourished my skin, and a consistent routine helped me to nurture myself and inspired me to help others.
Over the next 2 years I set up an in-house lab, qualified and gained top marks with Formula Botanica, an award-winning, accredited School of Organic Cosmetic Science.
I've designed and created a capsule collection of products that have earned hundreds of 5 star customer reviews and won internationally recognised awards from The Beauty Shortlist and Free From Skincare Awards.
Like you, I am increasingly aware of our impact on the planet. That’s why I've sourced sustainable packaging and the very best quality, ethically sourced botanical ingredients that nourish and feed your skin with vitamins and essential fatty acids. I’ve also sourced science-backed actives proven to soothe, hydrate, repair and protect all skin types but especially dry, dull, dehydrated and sensitive skin. I help you by doing the hard work for you, so that you can make easy, sustainable choices and live a more conscious lifestyle.
Pamoja is vegan, palm oil-free and certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, the global gold standard on cruelty free skincare.
Pamoja has been regularly featured in many top beauty and lifestyle magazines including Vogue, Natural Health, The Frank Magazine, Top Sante, and Women's Health.
When I'm not working, I love live music, podcasts and books, cooking and enjoying nature. I happiest when outdoors with my family exploring the woods and coastline of the beautiful North East of England.
