The team behind IMPERIAL INDUSTRIES BARBER PRODUCTS, Inc. has spent a combined 26 years in the Los Angeles and New York City barber culture. During that time, they have worked to perfect the craft of classic American styling.
However, in all those years they never found a hair or grooming product that was quite perfect. Pomades, gels and waxes were either too weak, too greasy/waxy, or too fragrant, while shaving products often fell victim to an onslaught of hype that never met our expectations. So they built the perfect products themselves. Their first result was the premium water-based CLASSIC POMADE, the “STRONGEST WATER-BASED POMADE IN AMERICA” that is unequivocally “MADE TO WORK.” They spent two-and-a-half years testing the CLASSIC POMADE not only in research labs, but in barbershops on real customers who were also tired of products that failed them.
The feedback they received from customers was so positive that they couldn’t stop with just the CLASSIC POMADE. While still working behind their chairs, they created four additional products for the IMPERIAL INDUSTRIES line: Fiber Grease, Gel Pomade, Pre-Shave Oil and Bergamot After-Shave. Similar to the CLASSIC POMADE, these premium products are “MADE BY BARBERS. MADE TO WORK. MADE IN THE U.S.A.”
They embrace and support classic American men’s grooming with utilitarian products grounded in heritage and functionality because they use them every day in the field.
