Barrister and Mann
Barrister & Mann is the the result of the founder's extremely sensitive skin. He spent 5 months testing different formulas in the kitchen of his tiny apartment in Boston, researching different ingredients and experimenting with different ratios until he had a shaving soap that produced a lovely, slick, creamy lather that didn't dry his skin. He later developed alcohol-free aftershaves and a beard oil, and most recently has begun selling alcohol-based aftershave splashes as well. The business has grown and is now a family operation; his parents have been kind enough to help him keep everything running as smoothly as possible, and they continue to expand both their staff and product lines.
