When I was about 13, my father gave me a framed poem called "IF" by Rudyard Kipling. It was a time when sons rebelled against fathers, and so the poem ended up in the bottom drawer. The poem is a father's advice to his son on how to be a man. It's about humility, honor, risk and reward.
More than two decades later, when the idea of making skin care products for men grew inside me, these values passed through my mind. Values that I thought could help me shape a brand. Then when a tattered old poem on which Boden an old chest came to light, I read the line: "If you Triumph & Disaster no longer endangered, because both of you know you as a swindler, as a sham ”, and the brand for men was born.
The philosophy of Triumph & Disaster is to combine the best of science with the best of nature to create naturally derived yet scientifically engineered products that work. at Triumph & Disaster we use local ingredients such as horopito oil and ponga fern extract, mixed with scientifically proven and natural ingredients from around the world, such as clay from Australia, jojoba extract from Mexico and tamanu oil from Polynesia.
Finally, we believe that the future of sustainable business must be a path of integrity and honesty (great marketing and a rotating distribution system can also help ;). Our goal is to respect nature, use science, create products with care - so we can recognize Triumph & Disaster, these two blenders, as such.
