From an NYC ad exec who fled the rat race to Portland, Maine, PGS is a home-brewed line of all-natural grooming products inspired by century-old soap-recipe books that often conscripted wonderfully dubious ingredients like tobacco and whiskey into their formulas; to further the authenticity, the products are packaged in vintage-style pharmaceutical bottles, whose old-timey labels are reminiscent of an era before barcodes, or science.
