It's that time of year folks where a lot of us will be hitting the trails and fishing holes again and with that in mind, we once more released that seasonal favorite, Outdoorsman's Friend!

Be Prepared, Naturally!

Outdoorsman's Friend is the perfect blend of essential oils for camping, hiking, fishing, hunting...general outdoorsy stuff.

Change is good.

For the past 4 years we have only ever released Outdoorsman's Friend in an aftershave and deodorant...because I really thought that would be enough. Turns out I was wrong, you folks wanted a matching shave soap too...Soooooooo, I made Outdoorsman's Friend available in Formula CK-6 and our Original CK-1 Formula...choice is good, no?

I also decided to create a Star Jelly version as well completing this humble little line of awesome!

 

But What is Outdoorsman's Friend Doug?

Sorry, I forget we have a lot of new folks here! Outdoorsman's friend is actually one of the first products I ever made! It's true, before shaving soap and moustache wax, I was making deodorant, one deodorant, called Stink No Mas. 

More Than Deodorant

I developed this for travelers in Central & South America especially! You see, Stink No Mas was an emergency travel size deodorant made with pure essential oils that would repel bugs when activated by your own body heat! [Our first innovation that really turned heads!]

This was really popular with the adventure tourist crowd but then we moved onto other things for different reasons and kinda forgot all about Stink No Mas. 

Fast forward to 2013, we were now established artisans back in the USA on the shave scene, and being so, we would get interviewed here and there on different vids and podcasts. In these interviews I would always begin with our origin story and naturally start with early creations like Stink No Mas. As you can guess, these interviews led to PMs and emails expressing renewed interest in this product, especially from outdoor enthusiasts!

So in 2016, to much fanfare, we released Stink No Mas once more under the new moniker, Outdoorsman's Friend! As I mentioned above, it was only available in a deodorant and splash. I figured that's all folks really needed...but I was wrong, way wrong. 

Turns out a lot of you fellas were shaving while out there in the great outdoors and really wanted a matching soap. I resisted these pleads for the first few years but not anymore giving you not one, but two shave soaps to choose from AND a matching Star Jelly! 

New Tweak

By now, most of you know we are constantly tweaking our formulations in an effort to ALWAYS stay current and deliver to our customers the best possible versions of our products, so it won't surprise you that I updated the Outdoorsman's Aftershave. 

Being that steam distillation is a big thing with me I decided to create some catnip hydrosol and use it in place of the peppermint hydrosol. While peppermint is a natural bug repellent, catnip is a much stronger one. In fact, catnip is reported to be 10X stronger than DEET...so this seemed like a no brainer. Being that Catnip Oil was already on the ingredient list including the hydrosol too could only boost the effectiveness! BOOM!!!!

So start planning that camping trip folks and don't forget to pack some Outdoorsman's Friend!

Oh and let us not forget Dear Ol' Dad!

This has also been a really big hit as a Father's Day Gift too in the past, so keep that in mind if your pops has a camper in the driveway or a garage full of gear!

So get your Shave On & Bug Off all in one fell swoop!
