Our Company

American Provenance, LLC is a company born out of necessity. After years of buying personal care products filled with countless chemicals, additives and artificial fillers, we decided that we could do better. We didn’t want to continue using products that contained things we didn’t know anything about or could hardly pronounce. We’ve always been do-it-yourself kind of people, so began making our own aftershave, cologne, deodorant, pomade and beard balm. We researched how to make all-natural products and started a series of experiments in our own kitchens, determined to make the highest quality, all-natural products from the best ingredients available. The resulting products are now the foundation of American Provenance. We specialize in all-natural personal care products intended for discriminate and conscientious consumers. Our clients care about how they look, smell and feel. They are intelligent and take pride in the message they send with their purchasing power. They choose to support small, independent businesses and appreciate the personal care and attention provided by unique retailers.

Our Promise to You

At American Provenance, we hold ourselves to a high standard. Our operations are transparent. We don’t rely on expensive packaging, misleading advertising, or fine print. All of our products are made in small batches to ensure both quality and consistency. Additionally, all of our products are free of metals, petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, artificial ingredients, artificial colors, artificial fragrances and preservatives. We feel both a social responsibility and a moral obligation to act with honesty and integrity and to treat our customers how we would like to be treated. Simply put, we are in business to provide you with high quality, minimal ingredient, natural products to make you look, smell and feel your very best.

American Provenance Founder Kyle LaFond

Our Founder

Kyle LaFond is the founder of American Provenance. He never thought that a simple decision to begin making his own personal care products would ever lead to anything more than a few Mason jars in his medicine cabinet. However, that all changed with a few homemade holiday gifts and the encouragement of friends, family and even complete strangers who would often tell him that he smelled great.

And so, American Provenance was born.

Kyle and a small team handcrafts all the products in small batches. We don’t cut corners or spare any expense to deliver only the very best all-natural products to you or those in your life.

Kyle would like to personally thank you for your interest in both natural products and supporting small, independent businesses. He hopes you will enjoy all of his products and always welcomes your questions and comments.

Our Roots

American Provenance is a high quality, all-natural personal care line that is an extension of my upbringing. Growing up, I was strongly influenced by the examples of a wonderful gentleman. My grandpa was a proud, traditional dairy farmer and was a shining example of the quintessential American role model. He loved working with his hands, being a responsible steward, and taking care of his family.

The time I spent with my grandpa in my formative years lead to my interest in nature, science, engineering, problem solving, small business management and independence. My grandpa always told me to make my own path and do things the right way. He instilled in me the importance of thinking things through and making decisions by taking all considerations into account.

When I think of what it means to be a man, my grandfather comes to mind immediately. I hope to convey that sentiment through the products of American Provenance.
