MacDuffs Soap Co. - Autumn Cabin - Aftershave Splash
Description from MacDuffs:
Notes: Toasted Maple, Fir Needle, Balsam Fir, Juniper, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Pear, Lemon, Cardamom
"There is a harmony in autumn, a lustre in its sky" - Percy Bysshe Shelley
The first of my "Cabin" series, Autumn Cabin is inspired by popular Fall scents crossed with my love for a simple cabin in the woods. The maple here isn't overpowering or too sweet and is tamed by the presence of various evergreens and cedarwood. Pear and lemon sit in the background, adding nuance to the sweetness of the maple rather than serve as standout notes.
This year's version of Autumn Cabin includes a natural maple accord made from essential oils. There is no maple essential oil and this is my best attempt at recreating what one might smell like, with the intention of adding some natural authenticity to
the scent blend. This accord is available to purchase on it's own as well in the form of a diffuser blend.
About Their Splash
- Alcohol free witch hazel and aloe vera based splash
- Organic Jojoba oil and glycerine help the skin retain moisture (emollient).
- Uses Olivem, which is a water-soluble fat with sebum recovering activities (sebum is the oily, waxy substance produced by your body’s sebaceous glands). Olivem has strong emolliency and lubricant properties that offers a distinctive skin smoothness and long-term moisturizing effects.
- DL-Panthenol, or Vitamin B5 is used to rehydrate dry, damaged skin
- Hydrolyzed Oat Protein* and silk peptides enhance the moisturizing properties of their splash and imparts a velvet-like smoothness after drying.
- Allantoin is widely used in cosmetic, dermatological and pharmaceutical formulations for its soothing and anti-irritating properties. Allantoin stimulates healthy, normal tissue formation even at low concentrations.
- Grapefruit Seed Extract and Vitamin E are antioxidants that extend the life of their splash, but also have beneficial moisturizing properties.
- White Willow Bark is an astringent.
- All of their fragrance oils are paraben and phthalate free.
- As this is a water based product, they must use preservative to keep their aftershave splash free from bacteria and mould.
