It’s A Wash


Jordan River SoapworksMy natural beauty posts have been a hit as of late, so I thought it was due time to share another great Canadian brand with your best interests at heart. Jordan River Soapworks is based in the great province of BC, and draws its name from coastal name of the same town. The gist of the brand is simple: to create natural, handmade products that aren’t loaded with allergen-causing fragrance or of course, synthetic ingredients that are as bad for your skin as they are for the earth. Today I’m going to take you through a quick tour of the brand’s line-up of bath goodies that make perfect presents for a range of gift-giving occasions.

Jordan River Soapworks Artisinal SoapsOne of the most refreshing things about Jordan River Soapworks is how short their ingredients list. Although their artisanal soaps ($12 each) boast lush combinations like soothing Lavender & Clay or energizing Grapefruit & Bergamot, the ingredients are blessedly in short supply: made only with a few basic oils you could pick up in the grocery store, natural essential oils, and in some cases – dried flowers or peppermint leaves to ramp up the scent factor. If you’ve got really sensitive skin, there’s also an unscented option to scrub-free, scent-free. The soaps come in their own little stamped cardboard box, which makes them an ideal choice as party favours for a wedding, shower, or fundraiser.

Jordan River Soapworks LipbalmIf you want to keep your pucker primed for summer swooning season, look no further than these cute little tins of lip butter ($8). Choose between a shea butter or a cocoa butter formulation (the former comes in unscented and peppermint varieties) and smear on some BC beeswax-based lip balm to protect your lips from the elements with a non-addictive formula. Best of all, you won’t be inhaling anything harmful – keep in mind, whatever you put on your lips will likely end up in your system. Isn’t all-natural a much better choice than something loaded with chemicals you’d otherwise never ingest? Love these little tins as birthday present add-ons and stocking stuffers!

Jordan River Soapworks Body ButterWhen you step out of the shower, it’s key to lock in the moisture to keep your skin touchably soft for hours (if not days) to come. A natural body butter ($16-$32) can help by not loading your body with extra water (a primary ingredient in most store bought products), but oils, which actually absorb better into the skin. Oil-based moisturizers can also pull double duty as a massage oil; buy a jar for your hubby and spend a relaxing evening together soothing away your troubles through a mix of aromatherapy and skincare. You can dabble in a bunch of Jordan River Soapworks body butters at $16 a pop for a 25g jar, but the 100g jars offer the best bang for your buck at $32 each. Although it’s just passed, these cute (recyclable) tins are just crying out for Mother’s Day gifting, or perhaps an any-season choice for your mom or sister’s birthday.

You can snap up Jordan River Soapworks products online, with $12 flat rate shipping or free if you spend over $50 (which trust me, isn’t hard to do if you’re stocking up on gifting goodies). Their goodies are also available at a variety of BC-based retailers + at special pop-up shops & festivals throughout the year.
