The company was launched by a husband-and-wife team based in Upstate New York. Kevin, a real estate entrepreneur, had used bar soap for hair/face/body for his first 42 years. Then Maude, who is a veteran of the beauty industry, moved in and brought with her enough product to fill a shop. Despite his initial skepticism, Kevin realized that products were not only fun but made a difference in how he looked and felt. But he couldn't find products that spoke to him, so Maude saw an opportunity and developed them. From there, the line was born.
Owner and co-founder Maude Burns spent over a decade working in luxury beauty marketing in New York City. With a passion for beauty products and a dedication to conscious living, she saw an opportunity to create “clean and green” men’s products that were also sophisticated and spoke to the men in her life.
