Kent Santin ’13SCE co-founded Kent & Bond the first organic men’s body care and grooming brand. One night Kent and his his fellow co-founder, Benjamin Bond, were looking over the ingredients in today’s commonly used body washes and were shocked by the list of ingredients, with the majority being chemicals they had never heard of. After hours of research it was clear nothing existed in the marketplace that was truly organic while catering to men, so after many months and rounds of product development Kent & Bond was born.
Kent & Bond specializes in high quality, organic personal care that is encompassed by a rustic, yet refined, lifestyle brand. Kent & Bond aims to raise the bar for men’s grooming through unique, high quality products, free shipping on all orders, and their social commerce ‘buy one, we give one’ initiative. Their core product offering includes handcrafted bar soap, body wash, deodorant, body moisturizer, and beard oil.
Launched August 2015, Kent & Bond has received nothing but positive response from the market, with top executives from L’Oreal, Ralph Lauren, and other large skin care companies rating their products and branding a ten out of ten. Currently Kent & Bond’s primary form of distribution is through their website, with a growing wholesale presence in New York City and large online retailers.
