WHISTLER: Pure Clean. Powered by Nature.

Deep cleaning. Naturally Derived. Moisturizing. Invigorating.

Whistler: Pure clean. Powered by nature.

WHISTLER IS...

1 - LESS PRODUCT, MORE CARE: A perfectly balanced lineup of multi-purpose shower essentials to start your day off better.

2 - DEEPER CLEAN: Ultra premium ingredients, high-powered botanicals and no fillers.

3 - ZERO TOXINS: A healthy alternative that to the hidden evils currently hiding in your soap dish.

4 - SCENT DESIGNED FOR FOCUS: A memorable fragrance - Campfire and Cut Grass - formulated to invigorate and clear your mind.

5 - DOES GOOD: A proven way to leave our coastlines and waterways better tomorrow than they are today.

We've stripped out the skin-drying parabens and sulphates to create a naturally derived 2-in1-Shampoo, an All-Over Body Wash, and a moisturizing Face and Body Bar, that vow never to use ocean-clogging micro-beads or hidden toxins. Each is packed with nature's highest powered botanicals and a scent guaranteed to inspire.

It starts with a feeling; The kind of mindfulness and in-the-moment living that comes when we step outside of our normal routine to connect with something real, deeper, more natural. 

When we checked the labels on the products in our bathroom, we were anything but inspired; toxins, additives, products that do too little or strip away too much, and a routine that feels frantic and cluttered or incomplete.

Whistler intends to change that. Our line of multi-functional products is designed to get you through a complete care routine with ease. Built using premium, naturally derived bases and high-powered botanicals, Whistler offers a deeper, more natural clean and a manly scent that sets the pace for a clear-thinking, more productive day.

Take a breath. Make the choice. Connect with what matters most.

3 years ago Flint and Tinder - an American Made clothing line born on Kickstarter - started shipping bars of a custom-made soap featuring a uniquely masculine fragrance. The logic was simple; by bathing orders (and customers) in a scent designed to trigger thoughts of adventure and the outdoors, the brand and the men who use it would would embody that spirit.

It worked! For almost 3 years, Campfire and Cut Grass soap was among Flint and Tinder's very top sellers. 25,000+ bars and just as many satisfied customers later, the Whistler team was on the hunt for a scent that accomplished all of those same goals. Instead of re-creating what was already done, we reached out to ask if we could expand on the idea.

They agreed on one condition: We commit to making the complete line of soaps, washes and shampoos in America.

To the Whistler team, it was a no brainer:

Buying American is important to keeping friends and families working and our economy on top. If each of us spent just $64 on American made goods during our holiday shopping, the result would be 200,000 new jobs!

Manufactured using World War II era machinery, our tumblers are double dipped at the lip to put up with a lifetime of wear and tear. Perfectly scaled to fit several toothbrushes, toothpaste and more. It's the ideal way to leave things neat and tidy on your counter.

How do we do it? Simple. Core to Whistler's mission is making time to give back and clean-up. Each bottle sold supports that mission as we're partnering with top environmental non-profits and rolling up our sleeves to remove debris from America's coast lines and waterways. We'd love it if you joined us. 

For this project, we've partnered with the Connecticut River Watershed Council to point us in an environmentally friendly direction and make sure we actively protect and clean-up our priceless waterways. Feel free to click here for more information. CRWC believes in Hard work, Real fun, True impact and so does Whistler.

Risks and challenges

The Whistler team is made up of a former brand and product manager at one of the largest personal goods companies on earth, two soap factories (one of which had previously manufactured 25,000+ bars of soap for Flint and Tinder), a fragrance engineer, one of the top formulators on the East Coast and Jake Bronstein, founder of Flint and Tinder who has overseen the successful delivery of four Kickstarter projects to date.

We all came together with a singular passion - to deliver a deeper, more natural clean than anything else on the market and to inspire others to slow down and focus.

True, anything can (and likely will) happen between the project's close and ultimately delivering the product... but we'd like to think with such an experienced team of experts in our corner, a proven track record of success, and a bit of padding on the timeline, we should be able to resolve whatever issues arise.

NOW THE FINE PRINT: Whistler Wash Co is a limited liability corporation independently owned and operated from the Flint and Tinder brand line of goods and products. Use of any names, intellectual property or marks, in particular those of Flint and Tinder or Jake Bronstein individually, is done under special agreement and strictly for promotion.
