A brand new batch of Pearl+ Moisturizing Soaps is up on our online shop. Lovingly hand-crafted in small batches in Portland by our friends at Studio J, exclusively for Ace, the soaps contain crushed natural pearl, saponified oils of olive, coconut and palm, rice bran, shea butter, pearl powder, gotu kola and rosemary extract. These are the soaps we hang from the vanities at Ace Portland and New York, and it’s never there when you leave, so it seems these are pretty popular. Now you can actually have it delivered. Also in the shop: Pearl+ Detoxifying soap. You can get each separately as a large bar or together in a pack of two.
Pearl+ is a creation of Janet Jay at Studio J in Portland, Oregon – she runs the studio with her husband, and our long-time friend, John Jay. In China, the powers of natural pearl have been celebrated in mythology and practice for over two millennia. Janet learned about this special use of pearl powder from her grandmother, so her soaps are a modern interpretation of an ancient classic.
