I was lucky enough to be given a sample pack of products from Nova Scotia Fisherman. These are all natural NS Kelp infused soaps, lotions, lip and body balm for life’s rough patches. And, they are all handmade right here in New Minas.
By merely having these soaps in my bathroom, gave it a fresh scent – and that in itself was worth it! Over the past few weeks I have been trying out the various soaps. My favourite is definitely the clay mint! The hand lotion is not greasy, and the best word to describe the lip balm is invigorating!
My husband has been using the body lotion on his cracked feet, and after only two applications, his feet are completely healed! (Be thankful I didn’t include before and after pictures!)
For those concerned with ingredients and process, these products are not tested on animals, have no petroleum based ingredients, no artificial fragrances and are paraben free. They use a variety of oils from palm, coconut and olive that are good for babies’ skin as well. When you go on their website, every product’s ingredients are listed so you can rest assured what is in it.
Besides being made locally, Nova Scotia Fisherman works with local adult-service centre organizations such as the Flower Cart and Apple Tree Industries to help with packaging. They are a very valuable part of how they do business.
Every time you buy a Nova Scotia Fisherman product you are also giving back to nature. A portion of every sale benefis the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC)! The NCC works on a landscape scale to acquire, manage and restore habitats, including some of the region’s most iconic landscapes.
