Petite Portrait: Meet Sarah Moret
Sarah Moret (5’3”) is the founder of Curie Deodorant. Curie is an aluminum-free natural deodorant, that represents the simple belief that women can live healthier lives, starting with products they use on their bodies every day.
Before starting Curie, Sarah worked in Venture Capital for 5 years. During her time as an investor, she met hundreds of entrepreneurs, and was inspired by many of their journeys. Sarah knew she would start something of her own one day, it was just a matter of what.
Sarah has always been passionate about health and wellness, and is a very active person - marathons, backpacking trips, travel, you name it. She has always had a pretty demanding career too.
After learning about the harmful effects of aluminum, parabens, and other chemicals that are found in conventional antiperspirants, Sarah tried every natural deodorant on the market and couldn’t find one that could keep up with her active lifestyle. So she decided to make her own! Let’s learn more about this #PowerfullyPetite entrepreneur bringing all-natural products to women like us.
Hometown: San Diego, CA
Current location: San Francisco, CA
Birth sign: Scorpio
My company, Curie, is all about: Helping women live healthier lives, starting with the products they put on their bodies every day.
What entrepreneurship means to me: Freedom
One of my goals this year: Run a half-marathon in 1:40
I’m inspired by: Other entrepreneurs that have built successful, bootstrapped businesses.
Someone I look up to: Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx. I think she is brilliant, scrappy, funny, and so down to earth. She never took no for an answer, even after getting turned down by dozens of manufacturers and retailers. She built Spanx on $5,000 of her own savings and is now the youngest self-made female billionaire.
Three words that describe my personal style: Simple, feminine, cool
My work uniform: Jeans, booties, sweater, and a leather jacket
Outfit that makes me feel most confident: I always feel like a badass in a jumpsuit
My perfect weekend: I travel quite a bit so I savor the weekends that I’m at home in SF (especially when the weather is good!). The perfect weekend would include a trail run in the Marin Headlands, a trip to the farmer’s market, and a live show with friends.
Book on my nightstand: I just started The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
Where you’ll find me next: Probably on a run somewhere
