Two Guys, Two Microwaves & One Great Idea

Perley Beairsto and Les Falconer, Nova Scotia Fisherman's Captains

In 2000 Nephew Les and Uncle Perley decided to embark on a new adventure that initially started with a microwave and some organic soy wax which paved the way to an environmentally conscience company with a soul.

Burnt Out Solutions Inc (BOSI) was formed to employ people with barriers to regular employment and to provide work orders for local adult protected workshops. It was also created to manufacture premium soy candles that had no petroleum ingredients and was healthier for our families, homes, and environment.

Over the years they have learned a lot and grown from a microwave in the backyard to a manufacturing plant that has private labeled for great companies such as Kiss My Face Cosmetics, Ritz Carlton Hotels, Old Navy and David's Teas.

Les and Uncle Perley are proud to launch the Nova Scotia Fisherman line of body care products which incorporates their company values and utilizes amazing ingredients such as Nova Scotia Sea Kelp that provides an endless list of amazing skin rejuvenating properties.

Nova Scotia Fisherman doesn't stop at great ingredients, a portion of every sale benefits the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

BOSI is located in the Heart of Nova Scotia in the beautiful Annapolis Valley. The land of Orchards, Vineyards and Tides and boasts the highest tides in the world (check out this video to see the tides in action!).

Inspired by their community, environment and the people they serve, Les and Uncle Perley have worked hard to produce a quality all natural line that doesn't compromise on people or the environment.
