We are celebrating 4 years of American Provenance! A lot has changed since the beginning, but the one thing that has stayed the same is that we are here to provide you with high quality, minimal ingredient, natural products to make you look, smell and feel your very best!
The idea for American Provenance came to Kyle when he was a middle school science teacher. During passing periods, the school hallways were filled with plumes of body spray and fragrances, which sparked an idea for an impromptu science lab. Kyle’s students were asked to bring in a product they used everyday, analyze the ingredients and do some research on what they were. The results were dismal, and that’s when American Provenance was born.
Year 4 has brought us a lot of exciting changes! Thanks to the support of our customers and the demand for our products, we had to move production down the street from the farm, and into a new facility with more space. It was quite surprising when we found out the new space wasn’t going to be able to hold us for long, and we are actually moving again into a building that is currently being built with a move in date later this summer!
American Provenance was started on Kyle's grandparent's retired dairy farm.
We moved in the summer of 2018 to our new production facility to accommodate the increasing amount of orders.

Another notable thing that happened in our 4th year was that we were able to expand our team. American Provenance started with a team of 3, and has since quadrupled in size! This team comes from all walks of life, each with a unique set of skills, and always working to improve our processes to better serve our customers.

Not only did our team grow this year, but our product line did as well! We introduced a few new products starting with our bio-tube deodorants. The tubes are biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable. More recently we released 2 exciting products-- Beard Oil & Body Wash! Both available in our 4 most popular scents: Fastballs & Fisticuffs, Firepits & Flannels, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Shotgun & Shenanigans.
Lastly, AP experienced another big change this last year with the release of our new labels. We wanted to accentuate what the products were and use color to differentiate between our scents. We also wanted to make sure that we included what essential oils were in our blends, making it easier for you to find the perfect scent.
Here's a look at where we started with our labels, to where we are now.

American Provenance has grown a lot in the last 4 years, and we can’t wait to see where the next 4 take us! Thanks for choosing us to be your go to natural products.
