Featuring such ingredients as vitamins, botanicals that include kale protein, biotin liposomes, burdock root and white willow bark, the beard collection builds upon Scotch Porter’s mission of providing consumers with access to affordable and non-toxic products that promote holistic health and wellness practices.

“We leaned into insights surrounding where our consumer is shopping in this category and identified the area of opportunity at the shelf for our best sellers as we look to grow the brand in this channel of distribution,” Quallis said.

Products that are part of the collection include Moisturizing Beard Wash, Hydrate and Nourish Beard Conditioner, Conditioning Beard Balm and Smoothing Beard Serum.
