gel hand wash

born in the u.s.a.
grab little homegrown goodness with our limited edition hand wash. inspired by america’s diverse landscape, we bottled delicious scents like coastal redwood, southern peach and desert lily, so you can take a cross-country trip without ever leaving the sink.

it’s a bummer when you want something, but can’t have it. like this product, which is no longer available. sorry.

coastal redwood

an invigorating blend of eucalyptus, cypress + salty sea air. it’s big sur in a bottle.
