These brightly coloured soaps are ready for their close ups.

We'd like to take the time to shine the spotlight on the locally sourced Canadian ingredients that make these soaps so special and important to us!

 

ABYSSINIAN OIL

Floral Abyssinian Soap
Our Hydrating Pink Lady

Don’t be fooled by the pink colour and sweet smell, this soap is unbelievably hard working and hydrating. The reason Floral Abyssinian bar is such a hydrating soap? It’s made with abyssinian oil, sourced from Kensington, Prince Edward Island. Abyssinian Oil is a clear light oil extracted from the seeds of an annual herb called Crambe abyssinica. We love this oil because it’s packed with natural fatty acids, making it hydrating and easily absorbed by the skin, yet non-greasy. This oil will help to protect your skin from over-drying as you cleanse.

 

CARROT TISSUE OIL

Carrot Soap
Not just good for your eyes

A special soap dear to our hearts, this one has been in the works for a long time to get it just right. Our Carrot soap is made with carrot tissue oil, which is made here at the workshop in Canmore, Alberta. It is made using fresh carrots locally sourced from Coaldale, Alberta. Check out this video of how we make our carrot tissue oil at the workshop. Most people know carrots are good for your eyesight but it’s also great for your skin! It is high in antioxidants, which makes it deeply nourishing and can help soothe and soften chapped skin. It also has the ability to heal and regenerate damaged and aged skin, so know you will be doing good for your skin when you use this bar.

 

CAMELINA OIL

Omega Bar Soap
The Crowd Favourite

This soap was so popular, we decided to bring it back for soap fest! Popular for a reason - this unique soap is made with camelina oil, that comes from our expansive Canadian prairies in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Camelina oil is made by extracting the oil from the seeds of the Camelina sativa crop. This hardy crop can survive the cold Canadian climate and is nicknamed "False Flax" because it is so high in omega fatty acids and vitamin E, mimicking the popular goodness of flax. You won’t regret introducing the Omega bar to your skin.
