Ah, the dreaded 'About Us' section... that neglected corner of every website that most people don’t read, right? Hmm. So hypothetically speaking, we could say something completely ridiculous here, and no one would have a clue – like how our founder is a real 10th century Viking that was cryogenically frozen until 2014 to start Smooth Viking.
That would be pretty cool, but it would probably be better if we kept it real. So, here’s the real story.
The one thing we didn’t exaggerate about is that Smooth Viking started in 2014. Back then, we didn’t think that the beard care products on the market were really cutting it. We thought beards deserved more than a bunch of useless ingredients that don’t work, so we created Smooth Viking to give our fellow bearded brothers a better alternative. But, we didn't just stop there. We eventually expanded our horizons to cover hair care territory, too.
WHY “SMOOTH VIKING?”
Did you know that there’s been heated debates, Netflix documentaries, social media disputes, and best-selling books that have tried to dissect why we chose Smooth Viking as our brand name? It’s true. Definitely. Yup.
Actually, none of that is true… not even a little bit. We really do get a lot of questions about our name, though.
Since our products are formulated for men with a style ahead of their time, we could think of no better inspiration for our brand than the infamous 10th century Vikings. Why, you ask? Because Vikings weren’t just a bunch of ragged, unkempt dudes with cool helmets. They were actually some of the most hygienic, well-groomed people of their time. Hard to believe, right?
In fact, historians have stated that Vikings kept themselves very clean, and even bathed regularly once a week (which was preposterous at the time). Plus, archaeologists have even found combs, tweezers, razors and various other grooming utensils which indicate that Vikings wanted to look their brutish best at all times.
We dig that.
