The wax is literally handmade, hand-poured and hand-tested by creator, Mississippi Fireman and Farrier, John Pitts. His manufacturing facility is a quaint country cabin. His inspiration to create this one of a kind wax, was due to his favorite wax going out of business. He couldn't find a good wax to replace it. He needed a wax to withstand the heat and humidity in Mississippi, as well as the damp and cold. So he decided to invent and create his own! Firehouse Moustache Wax offers three different types of waxes. None of the waxes contain dyes or fragrances. The color and scent all come naturally from the ingredients used.
