Rocky Mountain Soap-2

With our rocky start to the new decade, there’s no better time to show some love and support for our Canadian companies!

Canmore, Alberta-based Rocky Mountain Soap Company has spent the last 21 years bringing wellness products to health-minded consumers throughout Canada and the world. What started out as a craft soap-producing brand has evolved to include face, body, hair and baby care, wellness sprays, balms, bath salts as well as essential and massage oils.

Owners Cam and Karina created Rocky Mountain Soap with sustainability in mind and sell products that are toxin-free, contain eco-friendly packaging and simple, natural ingredients that won’t lead to animal habitat, species or environmental destruction.

Rocky Mountain Soap Hero Hands

In furthering community spirit throughout the pandemic, Rocky Mountain Soap has, to date, donated 419 bottles of hand sanitizer, 11,257 units of soap and 10,125 units of limited-edition Hero Hands Body Butter created for healthcare workers, distributed across 14 major hospitals in Alberta.

They’ve also compiled an online green list of the top 21 natural and/or organic, GMO-free ingredients used in their products, including plants, flowers and herbs. These range from soothing Almond oil to Vitamins A and C-enriched Rosehip oil.

We selected several natural soap bars to discover, including Goat’s Milk and Lavender, Minty Tea Tree, Geranium, Patchouli & Mint, Honey, Oats & Cocoa Butter, and Lavender. On the sleeve, you’ll find a list of ingredients, suggested skin type and the fact that their products are GMO-Free, vegan and tested only on people, not animals.

The reason for our selection is not only scent-based but also by skin type: Honey, Oats & Cocoa Butter, Geranium and Goat’s Milk and Lavender are ideal for dry skin, Patchouli & Mint and Lavender for normal skin, and Minty Tea Tree for combination skin.

Honey Oats & Cocoa soap

I enjoyed an explosion of scent when opening the box as the soap bars are not packaged in anything other than a paper sleeve around the soap; the combined smell of all six soaps was gorgeous! I then isolated the soaps to get a better sense of their true scents, and found that the two mint variations were predictably the strongest of the group.

The subtlest scent of our selection is Geranium. The lavender soap isn’t nearly as strong as other lavender-scented soaps I’ve used and overall, I find the scents less overpowering when washing up with these handcrafted soaps. 100g; CAD $5.95 each

Wellness Spray

Refresh, reset and relax! We also tried two Rocky Mountain wellness sprays: Cool Off and Calm Down, each created using a blend of essential oils.

One is perfect for winding down, the other for revitalizing the skin after summer days at the beach, working in the garden or at the gym.

Cool Off infuses peppermint, tea tree, rosemary and French lavender for a mist to revive your skin, especially when spritzed on the face. A couple of pumps of this spray and my skin just soaks in that herbal burst.

Calm Down, on the other hand, combines sweet orange, lime peel and pink grapefruit oils with rosemary and French lavender to bring your energy level down a notch or two. If you’re a fan of cloves, there’s also clove bud oil included in the mix for a final, sweet/spicy aroma. Whereas Cool Off is meant to be sprayed all over, Cool Down can best be misted above your head, then deeply inhaled to de-stress. These sprays are travel-friendly too! 100 mL; CAD $18
