We want to say thank you to the front lines, who are working so hard now and always to keep our communities safe. That’s why we created the Hero Hands Body Butter and distributed 10,125 units across 14 major hospitals in Alberta. Thank you!

Want to say thank you to someone in your life? Shop Hero Hands. 

Watching the hard work of our front line workers, we wanted to help. “Our mission to keep people healthy and safe took on more meaning than ever,” said Karina, our Co-owner and CEO. “So we really wanted to find a way to connect our product and what we do well, to a direct need in the community.

For the past 20 years, we’ve been using simple, natural ingredients to make soap, skin care, and so much more, but giving back has always been so important to us. Community is at the heart of Rocky. That’s why we strive to make things as locally as possible, that are good for you, your family and the planet.

By now, we’ve all experienced how frequent hand washing can leave your skin dry. We wanted to give those health care practitioners something to not only moisturize their skin, but protect and heal. Our scent-free formula contains local Alberta Beeswax, organic Cocoa Butter, and seed oils — like Sesame and Sunflower.

Since April 3rd we’ve also donated 419 bottles of hand sanitizer, 11,257 units of soap. Curious about why giving feels good? Read more about the science and health benefits of giving.

I purchase your butters for my husband who works in the Nuclear Medicine lab in the Tom Baker Cancer Building of Foothills. His hands always need care, because they wash their hands a lot even before COVID. If you have a chance to distribute at Foothills down in their Nuclear Medicine department I am sure they would love you and see why I buy your products for my hubby!

Wow! We’re so touched by the amount of feedback.

Our small team worked very hard over the past month to design a custom label, pour over 10,000 mini hand butters, and ship them out. We actually worked directly with Alberta Health Services to get these butters distributed. So AHS has decided where they are donated.

I am so sorry if you and your team did not receive any. We realize that we are not able to support every hospital staff member in Alberta, let alone Canada as a whole, but we were pretty excited to be able to send a little something to over 10,000 front line staff members in our local province.

I hope you can understand our situation. Thanks again for all that you do, we are truly so appreciative. Sending a big virtual hug.

Cracked dry hands are evidence of the frequent hand hygiene in the Calgary medical centre I work at. The team of 18 would so appreciate some relief for their dry hands. Thanks so much for supporting the Frontline workers.

Thank you Rocky Mountain soup co. for thinking of us healthcare/frontline workers! I am a nurse in Calgary and many of my coworkers and I have noticed that our skin has changed during this pandemic. Our hands are dry from constantly hand washing and wearing a mask has brought out many blemishes. Your Tea tree blemish stick has really helped me personally!
We would be so grateful to receive any products you have to spare.
Thank you for your generosity!

My boyfriend is a nurse in the emergency department in Canmore, Alberta. He has spent countless nights on shift as the Covid screening nurse. I would love to surprise him with a Hero Hand Butter to help heal his cracking hands and to bring a smile to his face!

My daughter is an RN at Foothills Hospital in Calgary. She works on the Neurological Rehabilitation unit. She loves Rocky Mountain Soap products and has been buying them and using them for many years. I recently purchased your Nomad Hand Sanitizer and gave my daughter a bottle, which she loves. If you can imagine, at one point a few weeks ago there was a shortage of hand sanitizer on my daughter’s unit during her shift at Foothills Hospital!! Not a good thing during a pandemic!! My daughter also uses many of the Rocky Mountain Soap products on her two little boys. Because of the pandemic and the fact that she washes and sanitizes her hands even more than she did before, her hands are suffering because of it. A little TLC and a caring gesture would definitely help during this stressful time. Just thought I would put in a request for my daughter and her coworkers on the Neurological Rehabilitation unit at Foothills Hospital.

This is amazing!! Thank you so much for your generous offer and your gracious support for the frontline workers. I work in the Intensive Care Unit at the Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary and I can’t even describe how dry and irritated my hands are by the end of a shift, let alone a series of them! I know many of my colleagues are experiencing the same! It would be amazing to receive some hero hand body butter to soothe them at the end of the day! <3

I work frontline healthcare, EMS. Our hands have been taking an extra beating during these times, cracking apart (which makes them more vulnerable to pathogens). I’ve been purchasing your hand butter and (non-drying) hand sanitizer to attempt to repair my hands on days off. It’s starting to help with the extreme dryness. Thanks for the great products.

Hi, I am a ICU nurse working the front lines of this epidemic. I’ve ordered and use/given away numerous bottles of your hand sanitizer. We all love it very much! However, we would love some of this body butter. Our hands are horrible looking from washing and sanitizing 14 hrs days. I actually put Vaseline on my hands when I go to bed at night. Thank you for making such wonderful products.
