I love supporting local and natural products, and that includes my skincare products. I use natural beauty products but sometimes have a hard time finding a great, affordable product. There seems to be more options (e.g. Honest Beauty) in the U.S.
One natural, Canadian product that I love is Routine deodorant. It is made in Calgary, Alberta. I tried a few scents refilling a glass jar at a local Zero-Waste store, and decided I liked the unscented (though it still has a mild vanilla/oatmeal-y scent) Bonnie n Clyde. If you’ve never used a deodorant from a jar, here’s a great instructional video from Routine:
I loved Dr. Hauschka’s mascara, however it seems they stopped carrying it in Canada. Nature’s Fare Markets stopped carrying their brand and although Shoppers Drug Mart still carries the brand, they advised me they no longer carried the mascara.
Although it’s not a Canadian product, I now use Gabriel’s mascara. I buy it from Nature’s Fare. Although it is pricier ($20 I believe). It works pretty great and I like the natural, non-toxic smell. FYI, if you start to cry, it isn’t waterproof.
