MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER

When Polly Glasse’s home burned down in 1995, she decided to turn her hobby into a business and create unique skincare products from pure plants and beeswax.  A year later, Polly created the original lotion bar and her new calling was born.

OUR VALUES

It’s time for us all to turn back to Mother Nature as the pure, essential source of answers to treat what ails us and to balance us with a clean perspective.  We opt to avoid cheap, industrial shortcuts artificially contrived in a lab and instead choose minimally processed solutions straight from the earth that can return responsibly back to the earth.  When you care enough, you do things differently.  Please join us in that journey.

PERFORMANCE MATTERS
#1

PERFORMANCE MATTERS

We carefully craft our climbOn products to perform superbly under the most difficult conditions.  It’s a difference you can easily feel.  Just ask the elite endurance athletes that swear by them to get up and down sheer rockfaces. Or ask the thousands of everyday folks that use climbOn products for routine skincare issues. Try them for yourself, and you’ll see, too.

ABSOLUTELY NO SHORTCUTS
#2

ABSOLUTELY NO SHORTCUTS

Other skincare brands rely heavily on cheap, synthetic chemicals and fillers.  Not us.  We know nature keeps us balanced, so all of our products are 100% free from synthetics and cheap fillers.  Always.  We use plant butters, fruit and vegetable oils, plant waxes, and raw beeswax because of what they can do for our skin.  We use essential oils for their physical and mental therapeutic value.  We also choose food-grade rather than cosmetic grade ingredients because we find they are beautiful, alive, less processed ingredients that simply work better. 

SAFETY YOU CAN TRUST
#3

SAFETY YOU CAN TRUST

We take your trust very seriously, which is why we are meticulous about climbOn’s safety for your skin, body, children, pets, and planet.  That’s one reason we use food-grade plants and beeswax rather than cosmetic-grade plants or synthetic chemicals.  If you or your pet incidentally ingest a small amount of climbOn from your skin, we stand behind the food-grade safety and quality of every item we’ve made.  Everyone can trust it and use it with confidence.

STEWARDSHIP FOR THE EARTH
#4

STEWARDSHIP FOR THE EARTH

Our products come from the earth and return to the earth with as little impact as possible.  That means using packaging that is either fully compostable or recyclable and made from plant fibers rather than synthetic chemicals.  It’s also another reason we use pure, food-grade ingredients rather than synthetic chemicals, so that we don’t contribute to the rampant bioaccumulation of synthetics in the soil, waterways, coral reefs, and more.

NEVER TESTED ON ANIMALS
#5

NEVER TESTED ON ANIMALS

While many cosmetic and skincare brands claim to be “cruelty free,” few actually are.  If you look closely, you’ll notice almost all of their formulas contain synthetic chemical ingredients, which are all tested on animals at some point.  That’s another reason we never use synthetic ingredients whatsoever.  Our products, along with the pure ingredients from nature we use to make them, are never tested on animals in any way.
