Nova Scotia Fisherman was founded by Les Falconer and his uncle Perley Beairsto in the lush agricultural Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The name Nova Scotia Fisherman came from some of the hardest working people within our Maritime communities, who endure unbelievably rough conditions and weather from the unforgiving Atlantic waters. The idea was to create a premium skin care product that could help protect against the harshest conditions that Nova Scotia Fisherman would encounter, while utilizing the nutrient-rich ingredients available to us close to the sea.
The company's mission from day one was to produce a superior quality, conscious, and clean skincare product in rural Canada. Source clean, natural ingredients close to home, provide work for a vibrant and talented rural community, all while giving back to the lands.
Today, Nova Scotia Fisherman makes a full line of natural skin care & body care products, right here in Nova Scotia. There are no added preservatives, artificial colours, artificial scents, and no animal testing used in any of our products.
We use certified organic natural oils. We infuse all of our skin care products with powerful Atlantic Sea Kelp, harvested locally from one of the richest marine ecosystems on Earth, The Bay of Fundy.
Our lotions and soaps use no animal products and are vegan friendly, while our balms use natural beeswax.
We believe in protecting our environment. We proudly support the Nature Conservancy of Canada as they protect our lands within our beautiful country.
Why is making product consciously important to us?
It's a maritime, fisherman way. Having pride in your work, pride in your lands, and pride in your heritage, is a way of life in Atlantic Canada.
It's possible to make a superior, clean product at a fair price point, provide value for people all around the world - right from a rural, maritime town. We accept the challenge.
