I recently discovered MacDuff's Soap Company ... and it's not the Simpsons' one.
A small Canadian company (Edmonton, Alberta ... like Karve) created in 2017, which offers very interesting products.
Two lines of fragrances, one "territorial" (Alberta Series) and the other more complex (MSC Series).

As always, the technical side attracted me.
The formulations are rich and modern.
For soaps, two formulas:
  • V2 running low
    Stearic Acid, Coconut Oil, Tallow, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Glycerin, Avocado Oil, Mango Butter, Beer, Green Tea Extract,
    Silk Peptides, White Willow Bark Extract, Paraben & Pthalate Free Fragrance and / or Essential Oils.
  • V3B new
    Stearic Acid, * Tallow, Glycerin, Castor Oil, * Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, * Babassu Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Coconut Oil,
    * Camellia Seed Oil, Mango Butter, Aloe Vera, Goat Milk, Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Sodium Lactate, * Argan Oil,
    * Jojoba Oil, * Pumpkin Seed Oil, Silk Peptides, Green Tea Extract, White Willow Bark Powder,
    Paraben + Phthalate Free Fragrance Oil, Essential Oil Blend
    (*) ORGANIC
Equally interesting are the accessories:
  • After Shave Lotion (Toner)
    Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera Juice, Glycerine, Polysorbate 20 (Emulsifier), Olive Oil PEG-7 Esters (Ecocert Emulsifier),
    Organic Jojoba, Preservative (Propylene Glycol (and) Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate),
    White Willow Bark, Sodium Lactate, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Silk, Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Vitamin E, Allantoin,
    Vitamin B5 (DL-Panthenol), Paraben + Phthalate Free Fragrance Oil, Essential Oils
  • Beard oil

    * Pumpkin Seed, * Camellia Seed, Abyssinian, Meadowfoam, Neossance Squalane, Vitamin E
    (*) ORGANIC
  • Beard balm
    Bayberry wax, Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax, * Argan Oil, * Black Cumin Seed Oil,
    * Jojoba Oil, Illipe Butter, * Babassu Oil, * Shea Butter, * Coconut Oil, Vitamin E
    (*) ORGANIC
  • Beard butter
    Carnauba Wax, Illipe Butter, Mango Butter, Murumuru Butter, Cocoa Butter, * Babassu Oil,
    * Shea Butter, * Coconut Oil, * Safflower Oil, Vitamin E, BTMS-50
    (*) ORGANIC
I also find the packaging beautiful, and the site is easy to use.
But above all the fragrances, with very balanced but at the same time particular blend.
In short, a nice surprise.

On the site there're no hydroxides and no water as ingredients.
If the firsts there're both, the second there's not at all.
It's changed with other liquids:
• V2 has Beer
• V3 has Aloe Vera and Goat Milk
Very good !!!

I picked up Candy Cane and Cardamom Chai in their v3 base and have been very impressed by the quality. The scents are rich, the product lathers quickly, and offers great protection with a fantastic post-shave face feel. They've quickly risen to the top of my artisan list (along with Joserra, Eufros, Noble Otter, and ETHOS) and I hope to see them get some more exposure in 2021.
