The Relaunch of Firsthand Supply!

search
Hey friends, We're very excited to announce the very first product line from Firsthand Supply's rebrand! FHS has been a great partner for us for the past few years, we're so happy for their recent relaunch/remake of a classic community favorite. I want to share some of the rebranding and production convos we've had with FH: MD: Tell us about the new Firsthand Supply! FH: We are building a company that values people on both sides of the transaction. From how we source the ingredients and materials used in our products to our commitment to closed loop sustainable practices; everything we say, do, and make supports that truth. In our pursuit to create the best hair products on the globe, our aim is to become the most human-centric consumer brand through honest sourcing, sustainable process, and a heavy dose of give-a-damn. Why? Because we believe people matter, so we make stuff that matters. #MadeWithYouInMind MD: What is the major difference in the new packaging? FH: Our jars are made from HDPE post-consumer recycled plastics! This process is not easy or cheap but we wouldn't take 'no' for an answer and made it happen. So far we’ve been able to use the recycled plastic of over 50,000 HDPE bottles in the production of our packaging! This process enables us to eliminate thousands of pounds of new raw material waste which minimizes our water, fuel and electricity footprint that comes with producing virgin plastics. This particular recycled plastic resin doesn't play well in the molding process and so you'll see a lot of little imperfections in the jar itself and in how the lid sits. We loved this aspect as it further tells the story and process by which these jars were made and our intentionality in producing something that is a direct reflection of our mission.

MD: Can you tell us a bit more about the ingredients being used for the hair pomade/clay? FH: We believe being open and honest about the ingredients and materials we use is the first step in combatting issues of transparency that run rampant in our industries. The products you use from us have all undergone strict vetting to make sure every ingredient is at or above current global standards for cleanliness. This process forced us at many times to re-evaluate how we use certain ingredients and get rid of some ingredients all together. What we're left with is a set of products that we can stand behind with full confidence and vouch for not only their effectiveness but their safety as well.

The hair styling collection will come in three types - All Purpose Pomade, Clay Pomade, and Texturizing Clay. A quick breakdown of the three types below: All Purpose Pomade Formerly known as the "Water-Based Pomade". Same functionality and application. Updated packaging, scent, and name.

Hold: Firm Finish: Low Shine Scent: Bergamot, Lavender, Juniper, Wormwood, Palo Santo What it does well
  • Versatile and easy to use. Scoop, use, repeat. It's that simple.
  • Everything from texture to slick backs are possible.
  • For a product with such good hold it washes out incredibly easy.
  • Works with all hair types.

Clay Pomade Formerly known as the "Summer Pomade". Same functionality and application. Updated packaging, scent, and name.

Hold: Medium Finish: Matte/Natural Scent: Bergamot, Lavender, Juniper, Wormwood, Palo Santo What it does well

Hey friends, The drop is now live - https://www.massdrop.com/buy/firsthand-supply-pomade-styling-clay Check it out ^^^^
Good to see it's at least 3oz for a sub-$20 product. I was going to try Pete and Pedro, but $20 for 2oz is a swindle.
Are they vegan? What's the cost? edit: nevermind, I see that there is beeswax. I am trying to live a more vegan lifestyle all around, to add to my vegan diet. I hope to see some vegan options!
