Company Description

Captain Blankenship makes a nautical-inspired line of hair and skin care products.

All of their botanical ingredients are certified organic, and are listed on the website with descriptions that come complete with Environmental Working Group impact scores. Because they use simple, natural ingredients, the descriptions are easy to understand — and since sustainability is a priority, all but one ingredient has an EWG score of 1 or 2 (for Low Hazard). Captain Blankenship is also a member of 1% For The Planet, and donates a portion of all their sales to nonprofits dedicated to protecting the planet.

It all began when the founder, Jana Blankenship, was making natural perfumes for herself and friends. Working as an art curator, Blankenship had no background in business or beauty products — what she did have was a passion for lush, natural scents and a distaste for long, incomprehensible ingredient lists. Jana began pursuing the business full time in 2012, after moving to upstate New York from California’s Bay Area.
