Those are essential oils floating on the top.

Prototype flask. It's incredibly difficult to photograph since it's shiny on shiny and convex in shape; light doesn't "stick" to it. I need to try again, but you get the idea.

What's the holdup? We're labeling bottles, and the flasks need to be ordered. But it may happen sooner than this paragraph indicates.

I may be the first to have the chance to try the production Frostbite. If you are looking for a refreshing splash, this is the very best I've tried. I really like how the final product turned out. Well done, Krampert!

Thanks Tom!

Hans, I think it's colder. It's similar in a general sense, but it's a different, and a better product IMO. The skin properties are definitely better. The 80 Below has no frankincense, the Frostbite has a significant level of it despite the cost, as well as keeping everything that the 80 Below has. It's definitely a premium product and the cost will be more. But my design philosophy is to make something as good as I can; after all, it gets used on my skin too. So in a nutshell, it will be more expensive, but it's a better product. It also absolutely MUST be shaken right before use because of the levels of EOs and my refusal to use additives to get the oils to mix permanently. I think less is more when it comes to additives. The 80 Below is a bit more tolerant in that regard.

Anyone, does anyone else load their balm or aftershave with frankincense? I haven't heard of any product that does. But seriously, I'd like to know if anyone knows of one. I don't mean including it in the ingredients in only a token amount.

Excellent! Given how much I love the original and how hot its here, it will be a perfect fit! Will likely order this with the new RR stuff when it comes out from IB.

Hans, I still can't ship stuff overseas, But Italian Barber can. It won't even be seen on my website for a few months at least.

Awesome label and flask! Biggrin

I can't wait. I was one of the guinea pigs, and I loved it! Be sure to tell us when it's ready!

The release date is June 1st. That allows the retailers to get things in order and on hand.
