Our Story


Katie Pearson Fucci, Founder & CEO

I started my plastic-free journey while working at National Geographic after seeing how it was devastating the planet, often taken for granted as a staple of our everyday lives. Upon making the plastic switch, none of the products excited me, and they needed an instruction manual to figure out. 

So, I decided to do something about it. Between working full-time during the day, and obtaining my master's at night, I created Parrotfish – a sustainable, zero waste, plastic-free, palm-oil-free, restorative shampoo, conditioner, and soap bars for a healthier you and a healthier planet. Making the swap easier than saying the last sentence five times, fast. Combining hand-picked, plant-based ingredients including argan and peppermint oil, our shampoo and conditioner bars give your hair new life with a silky smooth finish and lustrous shine. Parrotfish’s revitalizing soaps create a scrumptious, skin-loving, spa-worthy, lather and are naturally dyed and infused with ingredients such as turmeric, spinach powder, sweet orange essential oil, shea butter, and apple cider vinegar. Plus, you’ll remove single-use plastic from your shower, and reduce the amount of water used in your self-care routine. 

I didn’t want to build another "holier-than-thou," eco-conscious company. Parrotfish is the nexus of everything I was looking for at the beginning of my journey: artistry, the environment, and having a positive impact on the world!

It didn’t take long for my journey toward more sustainable personal care to start resonating with the people closest to me. Originally, I was looking into purchasing all of Parrotfish's products from other companies, however, my sister-in-law had an opinion on each product we sampled – they either weren't sudsy enough, they didn't moisturize her skin, or the color would run. When I told her to make something better, she did. Brittany was eager to join the cause and spent 2 years in R&D learning to craft delectable body bars, coffee scrubs, and much more to support a now growing movement.

She is innovative and loves learning about the science behind the beauty. As a kick-ass mother of two boys, Brittany cares about the ingredients that go into the products she makes. You can rest assured that every product sold is planet- and mother-approved! 

We create our own products and showcase independent makers from all over. We want you to experience the beauty and joy our handmade, plastic-free products will bring to your personal care routine.
