The Green Beaver

Green Beaver is a family company founded on the belief that the best ingredients come from Mother Nature. They rely on pure, natural ingredients to bring us safe alternatives to common household cleaning or personal care products. From their family to yours, Green Beaver is proud to offer products that are good for you, good for the environment, and good for future generations.


Named after the olive oil-based soaps originating in Castile, Spain, Castile soap can come in liquid or bar form, but it is made only from vegetable oils. Its grease-grabbing quality makes Castile soap useful on slick oven hoods, greasy pots and pans, hard-to-clean oily spills and really pretty much everything else. Castile soap and water can be used to clean counters, sinks, bathtubs, floors, or toilets; it can get rid of insects that infest houseplants and can even replace laundry detergent.

Because Castile soap is biodegradable and nontoxic, it’s safe to use on pets and around kids. You can even clean vegetables with it, as long as it’s diluted enough.

I, personally had never heard of castile soap. At first it was so odd to me that I was washing my body with the same product that I was washing my toilet. But after reading the informative pamphlet that came with the soap, it reassured me that it was perfectly normal. I found myself loving this product and in no time I was informing family and friends about this amazing miracle soap.

It’s hard when you’re used to using products filled with chemicals on a daily basis to suddenly switch to a all natural product. Your first impression seems to always be negative because the product is nothing like you’re used to.

When I tried the toothpaste for the first time I had immediately made up my mind that I didn’t like it because my teeth weren’t as smooth when I touched them with my tongue. (How stupid is that?!) My breath was extremely minty, my teeth looked great, but I was going to dismiss a perfectly good product based on “tooth smoothness”.

After giving the toothpaste a few more tries I discovered that nobody is going to be checking my teeth to see how smooth they are. I rather be brushing my teeth with something I know is natural that to put plenty of chemicals in my body and endangering my health.

Green Beaver’s natural sensitive aloe gel cleanser is especially formulated for sensitive skin. Organic aloe vera concentrate combined with soothing chamomile relieve red, irritated sensitive skin while purifying grapefruit gently dissolves excess oils leaving your skin feeling clean, fresh and balanced. Also ideal for acne prone skin.

LOVE! What a great product. I’ve never seen aloe in anything other than the after sun gel. This is so innovative! This product made my skin feel clean without leaving dry like other cleansers do. You can really smell the chamomile and grapefruit which I was afraid was going to irritate my skin, but to the contrary, it really did help relieve my red splotches. 

The Boreal Body Lotion is specially formulated to replenish dry skin caused by harsh Canadian winters. Enjoy silky soft skin all winter long by using this all-natural cream for maximum relief.

This cream is said to be non-greasy, I’d have do disagree, I find it extremely greasy but that’s what I love about it. Its texture is almost like sunscreen, it’s so thick that when you put it on it leaves a thick white layer on your skin that you have to really work and rub in to get it to absorb. I wouldn’t use this as an all over body cream but definitely for those trick spots like ashy elbows.

Escape to the tropics with the delicious scent of coconut, in the brand new all-natural organic moisturizing shampoo! This ultra-rich moisturizing shampoo combines the nourishing properties of coconut oil with a cocktail of organic essential oils and fruit extracts to stimulate your hair’s keratin fibers, leaving it full bodied, vibrant and naturally healthy. Great for tackling dry and brittle hair.

This is by far my favourite product from Green Beaver. I’m not a fan of coconut smelling product, but this one is truly amazing. I was a bit worried of how my scalp was going to react because I have a lot of dandruff. Usually as soon as I get off of my normal dandruff shampoos I break out into thick scabs on my scalp. But I gave the shampoo a try anyways (no conditioner). After one week almost all my dandruff was gone, I couldn’t believe it! It’s almost as though I was causing this problem to myself by using all these shampoos full of chemicals. I’ve been suffering for over 10 years for no reason. So frustrating. Green Beaver Coconut Moisturizing Shampoo is my new favorite Shampoo!

Green Beaver’s Boreal Lip Balm is specially formulated to protect red, dry lips caused by arctic winds. Enriched with moisturizing organic shea butter and skin-healing Canadian-grown Labrador tea, this balm provides soothing comfort throughout the winter season. Unflavoured so you won’t lick your lips dry again!

Another wonderful product from the Green Beaver! I tend to often forget about my poor chapped lips, this was a real treat for them. The Boreal Lip Balm brought my lips back to life in no time after only a few applications. A very pleasant texture and I really like the applicator tip.

Green Beavers’ revolutionary formulated all-natural Wild Rose deodorant stick combined with Canadian-grown labrador tea and anti-odourant sage oil provides you with 24 hour protection against smelly odours, ensuring you a fresh and soothing day!

I’m sad to say that this deodorant was a miss for me. After only two hours I start to smell again. I also had my Mom test it out with me and she had the same experience, she started smelling again after a few hours also. I wonder if a different scent might be better for us?!

Did you know?

Here are some facts that conventional producers of personal care products probably won’t tell you:

  • 1/3 of all personal care products contain one or more ingredients classified as possible human Carcinogens.
  • The average adult uses 9 personal care products daily, exposing them to 126 chemicals every day.
  • 89% of the 10,500 ingredients used in personal care products have not been evaluated for safety.
  • Over the last 30 years, only 9 of the 10,500 ingredients used in personal care products have been banned or restricted.

These are some of the reasons why Green Beaver is committed to providing you with safe eco certified products that are free of artificial chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers and GMOs. They pledge to only provide good quality products that are Vegan, Not tested on animals and Biodegradable!
