Designed to treat all of “life’s rough patches”, Nova Scotia Fishman is an “extreme skincare” brand which features Atlantic kelp infused soaps, lotions, lip and body balm.
This slippery ingredient found along the atlantic coast line was used for many purposes in Nova Scotian maritime history. It was a fertilizer, banked alongside houses to keep out winter winds, and also used as packing material for shipping lobster. According to Nova Scotia Fisherman, Nova Scotia Kelp has amazing anti-aging properties and has been used in health and beauty products since ancient times. It contains a bounty of ingredients that helps enrich and soothe dry skin.
Other ingredients used in Nova Scotia Fisherman products are also inspired by a maritime lifestyle, including a sea salt ‘n’ caramel lip balm, a sea salt body scrub, and sea fennel & bayberry lotion. Products are made without parabens and phthalates, no artificial preservatives, no animal ingredients and animal testing, and no artificial fragrance.
It’s not the first time I’ve heard of seaweed and sea kelp used as a beneficial skincare ingredient. Last summer, we shared about Sea Flora, a premium BC-based spa line of sea-based skincare products. Nova Scotia Fisherman, however, is at a more accessible and affordable price point, and readily available at local health stores. Prices for all products are under $20, ranging from $7 for a lipbalm, $16 for a salt body scrub, to $18 for a pump body lotion.
