"Trained to live beneath the soil, In dark and damp they have to toil." - From the Coal Miner's Prayer
The Crowsnest Pass is a collection of Rocky Mountain towns located in the south eastern region of Alberta, all owing their existence to coal mining. Aside from it's natural beauty, “the Pass” has a storied history including tragic mining accidents, Frank’s Slide (where the tip of Turtle Mountain broke loose the town of Frank was decimated) and even was a hotbed of illicit alcohol smuggling (the inspiration for my “Prairie Rum Runner" scent).
Crowsnest Pass has a strong and sweet citrus opening of Sicilian lemon and Calabrian bergamot that’s given some interest with just enough bay leaf spice. This sweetness is tempered with a good dose of tobacco that’s blended with hints leather, musk and Virginian cedar. Like our “Old Strathcona” scent, the scent is supported by a magnificent blend of oak, cedar and pine moss absolutes.
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.
