Introducing ANCHOR After Shave Tonic, the latest addition to our collection of hand-made, organic emollients, and a nod to the nautical history of Brooklyn's storied Naval Yard.
This soothing after shave is made with cooling cucumber extract and restorative aloe vera gel to give your face a truly satisfying treatment to calm and temper the skin, healing on contact the microscopic abrasions that even the best razors leave behind. There's also organic vegetable glycerin, a natural humectant, which draws and traps moisture from the air.
The Fragrance: It Does More than Just Smell Good
This is the first of our products we've chosen to impart with its own unique scent. Not available in our popular core fragrances (Williamsburg, Red Hook and Fort Greene), ANCHOR's scent is a spiritually inspired blend of ancient exotic woods, balsam resins and blood orange essential oils.
The inclusion of Palo Santo, or "holy wood," adds a new dimension in the creation of ANCHOR's fragrance. Beyond the unburdening aroma of the ancient essence, Palo Santo is said to stimulate the immune system, and has been used by Amazonians for centuries in the warding off of evil spirits.
ANCHOR also sports a healthy dose of Himalayan Cedar Wood, an essence used in ancient eastern medicine whose aroma can encourage the opening of the heart channel thereby stimulating the mind and the facial complexion as well as overall circulation.
The result? A post-shave treatment that leaves your skin radiantly smooth, your spirit calm & lifted, and you grounded--anchored--and ready for anything.
Our formula is Vegan friendly

According to our Grooming Expert, Wearing Pomade ranks right alongside Building a Fire and Using a Compass when it comes to Things All Men Should Know.
Our Old School Pomade is based on the classic pomade texture (a perfect balance of greasy, waxy and gummy) but achieved here without the disturbing addition of animal fats and petroleum products.
Instead, unrefined beeswax and shea butter together with the essence of the drought-proof Moroccan argon tree (among others) combine to form a light, breathable styling grease that gives your hair a beautifully moldable, moveable hold.
As Sloan notes in a blog post about using pomade, beyond its obvious styling, shaping and sculpting uses: for people with dry hair, the pomade can function as a conditioner of sorts, locking in moisture by coating the hair with a nourishing, organic seal of protection.
*Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, *Argania Spinsosa (Argan) Oil, Beeswax (Cera Alba), *Aleurites Moluccana (Kukui) Oil, Essential oils of *Cedrus Deodara (Cedarwood), *Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang), and *Cinnamomum Camphora (Ho Wood).

Directions for use:
Scoop a small amount of pomade onto the thumbnail and soften between the fingers. Apply thoroughly to hair and style as desired. Our Old School Pomade is based one the classic pomade texture (a perfect balance of buttery, waxy and gummy) but achieved here without the disturbing addition of animal fats and petroleum products.
This fragrance boasts a depth of character not to be missed. Its complexity is derived from the striking diversity among its four key essences. Classical, nature-derived aromas work in symphony to create a contemporary re-imagining of what a man’s fragrance ought to be.
Strapping, woody Cedar Atlas and Cedar Virginia stand alongside the brightness and warmth of Ho Wood and the delicate, floral fruitiness Ylang Ylang.
It’s a life-affirming hike through the woods on a cool, dewy dawn; it’s a rowboat reaching the center of a lake just before sunrise; it’s walking through the turnstile past the crowd, down the subway stairs and onto the train a split second before the doors close behind you.
Williamsburg smells like personal triumph.
Why Name a scent Williamsburg?We love Williamsburg because if you’re sensitive, quiet or attentive, you can positively feel a surge of creativity everywhere along the neighborhood’s streets. The people in the area are passionate and driven. Often written off simply as hipsters (whatever that means), Williamsburg's residents are known for their fashion, lifestyle and sensibility that embraces and glamourizes the distinctly unglamorous, blending the best of the past with the cutting edge of tomorrow, perhaps only for the sake of irony or the novelty of juxtaposition. Either way, it’s inspired.
There is no end to the list of geometric, architectural and sculptural possibilities when you’ve got some facial hair and a tin of Brooklyn Grooming Mustache Wax.
There’s the classic handlebar, worn by men of distinction throughout history from President William H.Taft to Panama Jack. The Dali, the Fu Manchu, the Chin Puff, the list goes on.
The point is, if you can dream it, it’s possible.
Castor oil and kukui nut oil condition your sub-nasal caterpillar while beeswax gives it supple hold and pliability. If you’re new to mustache wax—and this is the best place to start—you may be surprised by its firm, thick, gummy texture. It’s basically mustache glue.
But hey, as you know, the hair of the ‘stache is probably the hardest, most bristly hair on the face—maybe the whole body. So even with the stiffened hold of the mustache wax, you may have to spend time “training” the hair to bend and curl and defy gravity. Don’t hesitate to apply heat from a blow dryer to encourage uniform shaping.
*Ricinus Communis (Castor) oil, Beeswax (Cera Alba), *Aleurites Moluccana (Kukui) Oil, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, and (Tocopherol) Vitamin E.
* = organic. **vitamin e from Non-GMO Soy sources.
Directions for use:
After shower or while mustache is slightly wet, scoop a small amount of wax onto thumbnail and soften between fingers. Apply thoroughly to mustache and style as desired. Perfect for anything from Handlebars to Magnum P.I's

Our Classic Beard Balm is the same mineral-rich formula as our Whiskers Beard Oil but with the addition of unrefined beeswax and nourishing shea butter maximizing cling for longer, thicker or coarser beards.
The balm can healthfully weigh-down fly-aways between trims, soften the feel of your whiskers and even act as a styling pomade for your facial fuzz---all the while sealing in moisture and giving your beard a glossy clarity and noticeable sheen.
Loaded with moisture-enhancing oils and grounding herbs, this non-comedogenic formula not only improves the look and feel of the facial hair but also reintroduces moisture to those hair follicles that often suffer as a side-effect of daily face-washing. ***The added moisture can actually stimulate beard growth.***
