Highland Springs Shave Soap "Green Door"
A new offering from our friends at Highland Springs Soap Co.
Chris and Mary decided quite some time ago that they would try crafting a tallow soap base and have been working on it ever since. To truly call this base their own Chris and Mary started by rendering their own beef tallow to create this luxurious new soap base.
Green Door was inspired by Pacific Rim National Park on Canada's beautiful Vancouver Island. The park is a sanctuary for beautiful, giant cedar. Walking through the cathedral brings scents of Cedar, Fern, and moss along with many earthy scents. Highland Springs used this inspiration to create the base scent but struggled with it for quite some time as they always felt it was "missing something". After experimenting for several months they decided to depart from the traditional "Fougere" scent and added Lavender and Yuzu to round out and freshen the woodsy scent.

About Highland Springs Soap Co.
Based in Cranbrook, in British Columbia’s beautiful East Kootenays, Highland Springs is the passion of Mary and Chris Troniak.
At first glance, their story may sound like that of other family soap-making businesses - starting small, working out of their basement, and taking product to local markets where they built up a loyal, enthusiastic following. With business thriving, they decide to build a website and sell online, while still enjoying meeting the customers they’ve come to know face to face.
So, what’s different about the Highland Spring story? Rather than being an enthusiast who turned her hobby into a living, Mary instead re-tuned her professional training into a passion. A qualified chemist, Mary now brings her expertise to creating beneficial blends of healthy, handmade soap and personal care products. It’s not about looking for a nice fragrance - everything Mary creates, from base oils, focuses on what she knows gives the most benefit to the skin, and to the body.
