Brand relaunches in Canada offering products that are pure, clean, simple

As a user of Ivory soap on a regular basis I was  excited to be given the opportunity to participate in the relaunch of Ivory. As stated I have always been a user of Ivory bar soap and now after trying their body soap I am hooked. My current favourite is water lily body wash. I love the scent so fresh and clean but not overly perfumed. Ivory body wash rinses off my skin only leaving a pleasant light scent behind.

Ivory Canada is encouraging Canadians to take back simple moments and enjoy what’s most important in life with the relaunch of its basic line up of soaps and body washes.

Ivory stands for all things pure, clean and simple, and wants Canadians to make time for what they want to do, not just what they have to do. This means making time each day to enjoy what’s most important, whether it’s reading a book, getting home in time to put your kids to bed, or enjoying a meal with friends.

 In a recent national survey, over 40 per cent of Canadians revealed they lack time in their lives to enjoy what’s most important to them. With fairly complicated lives cited as a contributing factor, Ivory is encouraging Canadians to cut the complexity and enjoy more balance by taking back simple moments.

“In life, there is a constant struggle to balance personal and professional priorities,” said France Hutchison, professional life coach and author. “Enjoying a simple moment means making time each day to enjoy what’s most important to you, whether it’s reading a book, getting home in time to put your kids to bed, or enjoying a meal with friends.”


Well it seems like my life is that... but as I say that is just my life...

 “Life can easily get cluttered with never-ending professional commitments, household chores and everything in between,” said Hutchison. “After making lunches and walking the dog, set aside time to do something that you enjoy, the chores can wait.”

 With a formula that is 99.4 per cent pure, Ivory stands for all things pure, clean and simple. Canadians can enjoy Ivory’s basic line up of bar soaps in Simply Ivory and Aloe, and body washes in Lavender, Aloe, Waterlily and Simply Ivory plus liquid hand soap in Simply Ivory.

  1. Sharing the household chores with my family. I have a hard time letting go of how I want things done so I end up doing them myself. Time to loosen up. What's important is that the chores get done...not how they get done. :)

  2. Life is already pretty simple for us. We believe in living everyday and making the most of those days. We will, however, putting less stress on ourselves with some of our house renovations. We've been at it for 8 months so we're going to take some times off.

  3. I try to keep things pretty simple, we try not to over schedule and if we don't have time for something (or the thought of doing one more thing stresses me!) we are learning to say no.

  30. "Keep it simple stupid" is a sweet motto I wish to live by. I like to use this K.I.S.S. technique! I use ivory soap, it is simply natural and going green like using baking soda to clean is another simple easy peasy idea! We are a fairy small family so life is already kept fair-ly simple ☺
