A deep connection to the earth and the healing
powers of nature started for Pangea founder Joshua.
A love of gardening and growing food was
passed down from his Italian
Joshua’s love of scuba diving — and
care for the ocean — began. Having
encountered whales, sharks and sea
mammals being entangled in plastic, his
underwater exploration planted a
seed of conservation.
Early inception of Pangea was born through the
organic, vegan soaps Joshua created in his garage
with his mom, seeking an alternative to the
commercial products he was using that caused
irritation and inflammation. These
soaps were sold at local farmers markets.
After traveling the world to over 50 regions, Joshua
developed relationships with organic farmers to begin
creating a fully sustainable ecosystem of ingredient
sourcing standards. Dedication to 5-star care for
the humans and environments creating some of the
purest, plant-based, active ingredients in the world is
an integral part of Pangea’s ethos today.
Pangea Soapworks was officially born,
introducing a curated collection of nine
organic and fully sustainable soaps. The
brand continued to expand with bodycare
and skincare collections in the years ahead.
Partnered with IDEO, to launch the first plantable
packaging in beauty, made from 100% post-consumer
molded fiber, initiating a deep-rooted mission
to push for future changes in sustainable packaging
standards within the beauty industry.
Pangea decides to change its business model to focus
on the mission statement, “Our commitment to
sustainable practices is uncompromising.” We spent
almost a decade researching and meeting with partners
around the world who aligned with our values and
continue to drive future change with us.
Initiated our plastic-free mission and introduced
our new, infinitely recyclable aluminum packaging.

Our bodycare (and soon to launch) skincare formulas
are crafted with a powerhouse team of chemists to
combine the purest ingredients from nature, at active
levels, for science-backed, clinically-proven performance.
We are committed to using the highest levels of
bioactive ingredients and provide
ingredient labels with full transparency.*
*We always strive for the gold standard of efficacy in our formulas, and the majority of our formulas contain active ingredients between 1%-5% levels, when industry standards are typically at 0.1% levels. The only exceptions we make on levels less than 1% are to ensure consumer safety and no adverse reactions in the formulas.
