Let's Hear It For The Boys!
Prospector Co. out of Savannah, Georgia. I think it's fabulous that the company also embraces men who have chosen to limit their degree of shaving. Having married a bearded man, I love the fact they carry a beard oil. A few drops massaged into the beard moisturizes the skin, softens the folicles, and conditions the beard. As an added benefit, it can be used as an oil-based cologne.
J. Peterman catalogue, the best of which being the Miss Annie Jones Shaving Oil. As the story goes, Miss Annie Jones was the foremost bearded lady who capitalized on her unconfirmed case of hirsutism. Born in Virginia in 1860, her "affliction" was evident even at nine months old at which time she was being paid the hefty sum of $150 a week by P.T. Barnum. By the age of five, the patches of hair had blossomed into a mustache and sideburns. Absolutely priceless!
In addition to the Beard Oil and Miss Annie Jones Shaving Oil, we stock the Peary & Henson Aftershave, K.C. Atwood Aftershave, and Brummell Shave Creme. If you're curious and want to try an assortment, we offer the Tester Vials Kit ($16) of all the products with the exception of the Brummell Shave Creme. Products range from $16-$28.
