Ace High was born from personal frustrations with other products on the market. In early 2016, Nate began putting together small batches of natural ingredients in search of a water-based pomade with noticeable shine and a strong, pliable hold - something that wasn't really available at the time. It would be great to say that the first batch was flawless and we started the business the next day, but that's just not how things work. After the first few batches, it seemed as though Nate was better at making candles than he was at pioneering a new pomade, but he stuck with it and a few months later, our Original Pomade was born. After Nate did all the hard work of formulating, I hopped on board and we made the jump from a small passion project to a full-fledged business. In August of 2016 we released our first production batch of our Original Pomade to the public.
In the early days, Nate and I would have to wait until 11pm for the coffee shop we worked at to close to utilize their commercial kitchen for production. We were able to produce 25 jars in a modified crock pot in just under three hours (four when we had a few beers and some friends that were good at distracting us from working). Since then, we've grown to having a full product line, multiple employees, and an actual production space with equipment that allows us to make quite a bit more jars at a time.
It's been an incredible journey so far, and we can't wait to see what the future has in store for this brand. Thanks to our loyal fans around the world, everyday we're able to make and use a product that we love, while sharing it with everyone else. And for that we can't thank you enough.
