The best odor defence is a great offense!
Have kids? So do we! If you have ever walked anywhere near their open sports bags, you will know why we made this spray. Your eyes water and your gut reaction is to plug your nose and run.
As parents, we can't run away so we decided to make this spray instead. Enjoy the aroma of peppermint and lime essential oils instead. Power Play is a must for any sports lover - and the people around the
A product that hydrates like no other!
This one holds a very special place in our hearts. We made this cream many, many years ago at the request of Les's Auntie Dana. It was originally created specially for her as she was suffering from extremely dry skin, as a result of going through radiation treatments and chemotherapy.
The cream was made to help soothe some of her itchiness, ease tightness and keep her skin as smooth and moisturized as possible. It grew from there to help many more people. Today, we go beyond just helping through the physical product. We proudly donate $1 from every Dana’s cream sold to the Canadian Breast Cancer Society.
Dana’s Cream contains a unique blend of oils, butter, lavender flowers and essential oil, plus many other emollients and herbs.
This lotion was made for and tested by, the hard-working guys at Manitoba Hydro. Adriana has seen firsthand (pun intended!) how harsh working conditions in extreme elements can erode skin. For years, she toiled and tested different formulations until Eureka! A lotion that not only moisturizes the skin but also helps protect against environmental stressors.
Hydro Hands contains a unique blend of oils, shea butter, emollients and extracts. They are light weight, absorb quickly plus provide effective moisturization. All this leaves your hands feeling soothed.
Hydro Hands Lotion has been a Tiber River staple for many years. We loved it so much we decided to expand the line and add a liquid hand soap into the mix. Just like the lotion, this hand soap is made with ingredients chosen to amp up the hydration level of this liquid hand soap.
Green Tea Tonic
A Life Well Lived In Beautiful Skin
It’s called Green Tea Tonic because we actually make it from Green Tea! Green Tea Tonic is formulated with our own green tea infusion, rose water and French Lavender essential oil. This uncomplicated, yet coveted, facial spray was one of the first facial products Adriana created and continues to be one of our perennial best sellers. Those who've tried it, swear by it - don't take our word for it - check out the product reviews!
Green Tea Tonic can be used by all skin types as a toner in your facial regime. It is also very refreshing for your skin after a day in the sun and after trips on an air plane. Freshen up with a spritz anytime your face feels like it.
Last but certainly not least!
Zucchini Lemon Peel Soap
This is it! The original product that started EVERYTHING!
It was 1999 and Adriana wanted to make something that no one else was making. Her father suggested a zucchini. Zucchini? Who would think to add zucchini to soap? That was it, the difference she had been searching for. The problem was the chemistry. The initial recipe ended up causing an explosion in Adriana's basement!
It took a lot of perseverance, some quick chemistry referral and someone to clean up the mess but we ended up with this awesome piece of soapy goodness that’s full of actual lemons and zucchinis. We blended this with a refreshing explosion (pun intended) of citrusy, aromatic essential oils. There is Lemon, of course, plus Lime, Mandarin, Lemongrass, Litsea Cubeba and Cedarwood.
A unique and awesome piece of Tiber’s product history. If you are new to bar soap, try this one first. It has truly stood the test of time.
