Our Story

Somerset Moss is a botanical, adaptive skincare collection created by Holistic Expert, Sam Miles. Three products make up the Somerset Moss Capsule Collection: the Oil, Facial Mist and Balm. The magic being that each can be blended, layered or worn alone depending on what your skin requires. 

This adaptive, simplified approach to skincare is made possible because of the expertly blended, botanically-sourced ingredients that we draw upon. We take the highest grade of bio-plant actives and blend with naturally fragrant essential oils without fillers or unnecessary dilution. Our clean botanical ingredients will optimise your skin’s health, without disturbing the body's natural rhythm and balance.

A note from Sam Miles

Founder

I grew up on a farm in beautiful Somerset, England and as a little girl you could find me in the fields collecting hedgerow flowers, leaves and mixing them together with a splash of water, maybe a little mud. In my twenties, I developed a skincare collection for a major hotel and private members club. I still consider this to be one of the highlights of my career as it was the first time I worked alongside Richard Howard - the celebrated Product Innovator and Master Perfumer. Richards knowledge and passion was infections; I learnt so much and it kickstarted a lifelong interest in essential oils and botanicals. It gave me a wonderful insight into what it takes to launch a product that people love and I remember thinking: ‘one day I am going to do this for myself’.

I left the UK in my thirties, with my husband and my boys and began new adventures. I’m a bit of a nomad at my heart and love to travel. We spent 5 years living in Portugal where I grew an appreciation for sourcing high-quality ingredients simply and locally, mostly from local farmers markets. The experience made me appreciate how important it is to live slowly, spend quality family time together and enjoy the simple things while the boys were small. 

We then found ourselves with an opportunity to move to the beautiful West Coast of Canada - phase two of the adventure - so today I write to you from Vancouver. I joined an established botanical skincare business which has a strong focus on naturopathic creams and tinctures. This experience reignited my passion for botanicals and I continued to develop my own mental glossary of different plants and herbs and their powerful properties. After waking up one cold February morning in 2017, I announced to my husband ‘That’s it - I’m ready!’. 

I was more than ready to start the Somerset Moss adventure. I knew exactly who I needed onboard to make my vision for Somerset Moss a reality. So I enlisted the help of Richard Howard to assist with the formulations for each product. I also brought on friend and Lifestyle Consultant, Shelley Armistead, to help bring Somerset Moss to life.

I, like many, was overwhelmed by choice and as a result, had a cupboard brimming with many products and many promises. After trying and testing dozens of them, I was left feeling that I wanted to streamline my daily skincare ritual and simplify my lifestyle altogether. My goal was to pare down and design a minimal collection that offered maximum benefits. I believe I could achieve simplicity, without giving up any of the luxury that I still wanted and desired. 

Somerset Moss is going to give you the power to make simple adjustments in your skincare routine and respond to seasonal and hormonal changes in your body. Three core products from the Collection - the Oil, Facial Mist and Balm - can be blended, layered or worn alone to help you achieve all your skincare goals, simply. Learn how to listen to what your skin is asking for and respond with effective techniques that leave your skin feeling calm, radiant and nourished.
