This unscented pomade from Brooklyn Grooming® is based on the classic pomade texture (a perfect balance of greasy, waxy and gummy) but achieved here without the addition of animal fats and petroleum products.
Instead, candellila wax and shea butter come together with castor oil to combine and form a light, breathable styling grease that gives your hair a beautifully moldable, moveable hold.
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.
This pomade features a light to medium hold and comes in a new matte black travel tin.
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF
Net Weight = 2 oz
Hold: Light to Medium
Finish: Medium shine
Directions: Scoop a small or large amount, depending on hair, spread evenly through hair and style. Wash out with shampoo and water.
NOTE: If you've used Brooklyn Grooming Pomades in the past, this is a new and improved formula, gummier in texture and washes out easily with shampoo.

ABOUT THE COMPANY
Mckenzie Santiago started experimenting with natural skincare and grooming products in 2005, and officially founded Brooklyn Grooming in her small NYC kitchen in 2012.
“When I started, I was really searching for men’s products for myself. I prefer scents that are traditionally associated with men’s grooming products: they’re earthy and sexy, complex yet subtle. As I started digging into ingredients and research, I was shocked to find that the majority of conventional grooming and skincare products are loaded with fillers and dangerous chemicals. I believe all men and women deserve safe, effective, and sensual products and scents. And so Brooklyn Grooming was born.”
Today, Mckenzie continues to live, work, and play in Brooklyn with her partner and son. “I have extremely high standards for Brooklyn Grooming. What we do today affects the future of my community and our entire world. I take every decision seriously and question how it will influence the way my customers look and feel about themselves, and how the earth will be impacted. We do not take shortcuts, and we never settle for anything shy of excellence.”
Brooklyn Grooming believes that nature creates the best products, we need to protect it. We constantly evolve our practices to become better and kinder to people and the planet.
