The Montreal based team at Wise took the advice of one of their trusted barber colleagues to create their own unique line of natural shaving and grooming products. Noting that clients were increasingly searching for products that aligned with their beliefs – locally sourced natural, healthy, and cruelty-free – the Wise brand was born. Using Canadian inspired fragrances and scents such as red maple cream pomade, glacier clay, and birch bark shampoo, Wise products are distinctly Canadian. All items are manufactured using recyclable, reusable packaging to reduce their carbon footprint.
Other notable Canadian brands include;
- Elvado Shaving
- Henri et Victoria
- Tallow & Steel
- Uncle Peter’s Man
- Barber & Co, and
Happy Canada Day!
