Every other year, Rocky Mountain Soap Company, out of Canmore, Alberta, has Soap Fest, a celebration of where they came from. The brand started as a store that sold soap, and so that’s what they celebrate – hand-made, specially crafted, soap.
Soap Fest this year will run from July 25 to September 3, and will celebrate the Canadian ingredients in soap. They created three new soaps, all of which feature a unique Canadian ingredient.
The three new soap bars are Floral Abyssinian, Omega Bar, and Carrot Bar. The soaps are natural and each smells amazing.
The Floral Abyssinian bar contains Abyssinian oil from PEI to help hydrate and protect skin during the cleansing process.
The Omega Bar has camelina oil out of Saskatchewan which has Vitamin E and fatty acids that help nourish skin.
Finally the Carrot Bar has carrot oil in it which Rocky Mountain Soap Company makes in house, using carrots from Coaldale, Alberta.
Like I said, all the soap smells amazing, and my favourite might just be the Carrot Bar, which actually smells nothing like carrots. It smells fresh and clean, and a little herbal. Natural soaps feel so much nicer on the skin than other soaps – they’re immediately more moisturizing and much more gentle than anything else.
You can pick these up at Rocky Mountain Soap Company boutiques, or on the Rocky Mountain Soap Company website. $5.50 per bar.
