Hello Market Mall! Are we happy to see you. We are so pleased to be able to say that we have opened another Rocky location in Calgary (did you know we have three others? Yes we do; TD Centre, Southcentre, and Chinook).

It takes a village to open a store and this one has been no exception. Thanks to everyone of the soap stars who made the magic happen! We're excited about it because it marks the next evolution of toxin-free store design, and we think you'll agree when you see it for yourself that it is completely unique. We've achieved a new level of sustainability and have worked closely with manufacturers and trades to make sure this store is free from any of the items found on our red list and is as environmentally friendly as possible.

A couple of examples of these efforts include the American Clay walls which help to purify the air, the signature white wood which is reclaimed pine, and the marble display tables which have been rescued from an office building in Toronto and given new life in our store.

The backlit bottle wall we erected as a visual reminder of our roots; nature. With the art, design and materials we've used, we wanted to remind everyone where we've come from and where we're going. Once upon a time body care was made from the plants, flowers and trees found in our own back yards. In the chemical boom of the 60's we were seduced by the effect that synthetic products could have on our skin, teeth and hair.

Decades later, we're finally waking up to the fact that our great-grandparents had it right all along. Everything we need to keep us clean, healthy and beautiful is provided by the earth.

Come visit our newest gem in Market Mall and say hello to Miranda and the team. As always we 'heart' your feedback so let us know what you think!
