Speick is a German company with a rich history that dates back more than eight decades to the 1920s. This well-respected company focuses on high quality products that contain natural ingredients like Valeriana celtica, a medicinal plant also known as Speick. The company was named for this plant, which was recognized for its medicinal properties as early as the 10th century. Valeriana celtica, or Speick, has always been painstakingly harvested by hand. Speick continues that tradition by using only Valeriana celtica plants that were manually harvested by farmers in Carinthia, Austria in limited quantities. This company has the unique distinction of being the only one that uses Valeriana celtica extract in its natural cosmetics. Speick is not the first to recognize the benefits of this extract for skin care; Egyptians used it for the same purpose more than 2,500 years ago.

Although in a state of continual metamorphosis when it comes to their logos, the German company Heinrich L. Thäter never alters its key attribute: the exquisite quality of their products. Encompassing the slogan ”Times and Tastes May Change, Yet Quality Always Endures,’’ the ultimate shaving-brush crafter Heinrich L. Thäter has put Nürnberg at the center of the wet-shaving map.
Cherishing the family tradition of “Nothing But The Finest,” the artisans at Heinrich L. Thäter maintain the highest standards by using premium materials and proven methods to produce the best shaving brushes possible. In the hands of these masters, the essential wet-shaving tool is transformed into a rare gem: flexible, beautiful and extremely effective.

Conceived and nurtured in the heart of the Tirol, the refined products of Alt Innsbruck are as fresh and pure as the surrounding snow-capped Alps. Alt Innsbruck’s intoxicatingly aromatic fragrance is full with Virginia tobacco, rich and nostalgic and reminiscent of a deep breath of an antique humidor brimming with the finest hand-wrapped cigars. A crisp, yet harmonious, note of icy menthol cools and refreshes, balancing the aroma perfectly.
Available in Pre- and After Shaving Emulsions, Colognes and Aftershaves, this irresistibly manly scent was formulated carefully in the late 1940s and early 1950s by a master Austrian druggist, Franz Gatterer. Herr Gatterer created a rare classic, a bracing measure of cooling menthol followed by the light but authoritative ambiance of the tobacco and its flower. Its two-note fragrance is clear yet complex, lingering yet never cloying.
