On the subject of diet, I have often heard the advice, "if you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it.” Other than taking quinoa off the table for a lot of people, it's a pretty good guideline.
But with grooming products, it’s often more complicated than that. Ingredients that look like they came straight out of an advanced chemistry textbook might just be your hair's best friend.
Our conditioner is a great example of how the combination of all-natural elements and ingredients developed with modern science can result in the best product out there. While our ingredients list certainly includes plant extracts and oils, there are also some compounds you have likely never heard of. Rest easy. We pride ourselves on only using safe, effective and responsibly-sourced ingredients.
It's also why we like to take a deeper dive into our products and explain each of our ingredients—what they are, and what they do.View full article →
We live in an age of carry-on luggage and TSA security lines, of fitness-minded men who get ready every morning in their gyms' locker rooms, of tightly-scheduled professionals who go straight from the office to their evening outings without time to stop by their place to freshen up. This is no longer the era for big and fragile glass spray bottles full of flammable liquid.View full article →
Rather than offer a bottle of aftershave, we decided to create individually packaged towelettes, each loaded with just the right amount of aftershave for a single use. Individually packaging the towelettes made them much easier for traveling. If you're leaving town for a couple days, you can just grab a couple, rather than packing an entire package. The towelette also helps to better remove excess oil and leftover shave cream residue than a splash on its own.
In short, our Aftershave Cloths perform better than anything else we have ever used, all while making your processes a little easier in the process.
Check out the ingredients below to learn what's in our formula, and why it matters.View full article →
When we set out to create our shave cream, we tried to start with almost no assumptions about what a shave cream should be. Instead, we began with a question, "What are the problems that come with shaving, and how could a product fix them?"
After lots of research, and one-on-one interviews, we landed on this: Friction is the problem. And a great shave cream first and foremost should help drastically reduce razor drag.
And, after countless hours and rounds of testing, we finally landed on a product that we think is about as good as they come.
Check out the ingredients list below to learn not only what's in our Shave Cream, but why.View full article →
We don't need to tell you that your face is a big deal. It's the only one you've got. And, we have already told you why you need a face wash. So, we'll get right down to the details. Because in addition to using a face wash, you want one that you can feel good about. But going the "all-natural" route is far from a sure thing.
Meanwhile, there are some ingredients that sound like they belong in a Chemistry textbook that are fantastic for that face of yours. Below is a list of everything contained in our Face Wash, along with an explanation of what it is, and why we use it.

When we set out to create the best bar soap, we had several big goals in mind.
First, we wanted a soap that left your skin feeling healthy and clean. Second, we wanted a bar that was a pleasure to use. That meant, it needed to smell great, it needed to create a great lather (whether you were using a washcloth or not,) and it needed to last a long time.
Finally, we wanted to make a soap made of ingredients that we felt good about. They had to be safe, good for your skin, and responsibly produced. Below is a list of the ingredients and an explanation of what function they provide. We think you’ll like what you see.View full article →
Tea Tree oil is inarguably one of the most useful essential oils around. It also has one of the most confusing names in all of the English language.
Also known as the Narrow-leaved Paperbark, the Tea Tree is a small tree native to Australia, with the scientific name, Melaleuca Alternifolia.
Here's the tricky part. The Melaleuca Alternifolia is not at all related to the tree, Camellia Sinensis, which produces the five main types of tea that we drinkView full article →
