At Anointment Natural Skin Care, our family makes each and every one of our products by hand, in small batches, with high quality natural ingredients to create a true labour of love. Made in Canada. Mission: To create daily luxury skin care products for the entire family with a particular focus on New Mom & Baby. Pure and simple, it's our skin care and our way of life. We create our products by hand using certified organic, food grade ingredients and herbal botanicals - many grown in our own gardens in a workshop overlooking the windswept Tantramar Marshes in Sackville, New Brunswick, on Canada's East Coast.
Owned by former civil engineer and DONA-trained postpartum doula April MacKinnon, Anointment began building our reputation for high-quality handmade soap and skin ointments at the Halifax Farmers’ Market (Halifax, Nova Scotia) in 2002, along with a loyal following. In 2009 Anointment refocused its mission to serve the wholesale market and relocated to Sackville, New Brunswick in 2011. With a particular focus on pregnancy, postpartum and new mom & baby care, Anointment uses traditional herbal knowledge combined with scientific research to formulate products that are gentle and effective. In the spirit of being operated by a mother of three, our products can multi-task from boo boos to chapped cheeks without blinking an eye!
