Our Founder

Janet Jay believes that self-care is medicine.

By bringing the ancient rituals and practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine to everyday life at Golden Hour, she is able to share the tenets of beauty and wellness passed on to her by her family. Her hope is that ideas of health in modern society will be altered. No longer will wellness be a reaction, but a daily act of self-love.

Janet Jay lives in Portland, Oregon, and is the founder of Pearl+ Soaps.

Pearl+ is a modern interpretation of this Asian beauty treatment.  Each product begins with the activating qualities of crushed natural pearl, other herbs and minerals are incorporated for additional benefits.
