Update From The Crew! National Nutrition Award + CHFA Recap


Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) Convention!

As a small company, our hard working crew strives to make simple skincare, powerful. 

Our name Nova Scotia Fisherman references two themes in Atlantic Canada - resiliency of our hard-working maritime fishing community, and the rich, powerful content of our cold Atlantic waters.


This September, our team attended the annual CHFA (Canadian Health Food Association) conference in Toronto, Ontario. This annual event is an amazing opportunity to share our story, our natural products from Atlantic Canada, and share the stage with like-minded natural brands from all over Canada.



"Quit The Bottle" Campaign! 

At this year’s trade show, we debuted our “Quit The Bottle” campaign (read more here), new plastic-free body wash bars (Shop now), and made some new product announcements coming very soon!


Our new campaign is to encourage the consciousness of our decisions as consumers, encouraging us to take small steps to reduce our footprint and make better decisions for the planet. What easier way to start than to swap synthetic detergents and body washes for natural bar soap. Cleanse and moisturize naturally, without parabens, synthetics, additives, or gluten, and skip the plastic bottles.


Each bar is multi-use and safe as a body wash, facial cleanser, hand soap, or shampoo. They’re even great solutions for cleaning our furry pet pals. Long lasting, quick lather, and vegan friendly!


Great news for in-store shoppers!

We’re working with some awesome new store-fronts and companies to carry our products in stores near you (big and small), all across Canada. Click here to find a full list of stores in your neighbourhood. 

You can find our products in:

Canadian Tire
Whole Foods Market
Made In The Maritimes
Healthy Planet
Blush Lane Organic Market
Atlantic Superstore

We also work with many independent shops across Canada who do amazing work. We want to thank them for their support and dedication to their communities. We want to give our customers the option to support their local business owners, and still have access to natural products at an affordable price point. These wonderful businesses give us that opportunity and we thank them!


National Nutrition Awards - Best Lip Care! 

We must also give a big thank you to National Nutrition, for awarding us 2019’s Best Lip / Mouth Care for our original sea kelp lip balm (Shop now).



Our original lip balm was one of the first all natural formulas for our company, and has been a best-seller ever since, mainly due to its instant moisturizing properties and anti-inflammatory benefits. We also use sustainably-sourced, untreated, organic beeswax that helps create a barrier from the environment, preventing chapping from cold winds, dry airs, or anything nature will throw your way.


It’s an honour to be recognized for the natural formulas of our products, as it’s an important foundation for our company values. We believe the best and most effective products, can also be some of the cleanest and most natural. Let nature do the work, and our skin reap the powerful benefits!

This summer is going to be different in how we interact, where we go, and also in the principles for keeping our skin healthy. Apart from the obvious (excessive hand washing), we are also dealing with changing climates and a challenging summer vacation schedule that’s forcing some of us to get outside in our own back yards (not so terrible). The outdoor environment can be challenging to navigate in terms of keeping our skin healthy, vibrant, and these challenges can be harder to overcome (and expensive) for those with senstitivities.

Nature typically gives back to us, and offers many natural remedies for our skin, we just need to learn how to use them.Let’s break it down and cover simple ways to help keep your skin looking / feeling healthy during summer without using overpriced, overcomplicated solutions:

5 Best Skincare Gifts for Dad 2020 - How to Repair Dry Hands

May 27, 2020 5 min read

This year more than ever, Dad’s hands are taking abuse from over cleansing and drying-out from sanitizing. Although Dads are usually the ones who need to be paying extra care to their hands, they are often times still neglected. 

The key to healthy skin is to find a routine and products that are simple and work, and that shouldn’t be at the expense of their health by adding in chemical ingredients they don’t need. Simple, natural, effective. Rinse and repeat.
