Based in Melbourne Australia, Hunter Lab is one of the latest brands to join the Hunting for George family and they are certainly making a good first impression in our head office. A natural skincare brand for men, has enough unisex appeal to get the girls in our office stealing samples left, right and centre. Using high quality and sustainable ingredients Hunter Lab is focused on creating a healthier, simpler daily routine for both men and women.
Behind the Brand
Elliot Waldron is the co-founder of Hunter Lab. The brand was born from his desire to find a natural skincare brand he was excited to use and proud to advocate amongst his mates. Getting men to invest in their brand, and take an active interest in their ongoing health, is what drives him and the team at Hunter Lab to create the very best skin health tools.
“To me, skincare is as equally about skin health as it is about the extra confidence gained from spending a small amount of time every day feeding your skin. It’s the extra 1%, like wearing a great watch, which arms you with the confidence required to tackle any situation. And as skincare is the first step in the daily ritual, it makes Hunter Lab the first step in the style creative process as we dress for any occasion. And where it goes next, well, that’s up to you”, says Elliot.
