Cliff Original

Cliff-1As the holidays approach, we are always in a frantic search for the right gift for the right person. This year look no farther; try a product by Cliff Original for the special man in your life. A local company, Cliff Original, handcrafts Men’s grooming products with all-natural ingredients.


Jared Friesner, the founder of Cliff Original grew up on a small farm in Ohio, he began following his Grandpa Cliff around on the farm, shadowing and learning everything he did. His admiration of Grandpa Cliff’s character led him to name his company after him. To show additional admiration to his Grandpa 10% of Cliff Original profits go to local charities, in honor of his Grandpa.



Jared Friesner, Founder of Cliff Original

While attending holistic wellness school and working a full time job, Friesner turned his project and ideas into a business in 2013 saying “I started developing my own styling products after finding a marketplace full of chemically packaged products.”


Cliff Original stands behind paraben-free, sulfate-free, toxin-free, harsh chemical-free and zero tolerance for testing on animals. Along with using all natural products, Cliff Original also sources many of their ingredients and packaging locally. Their best selling all natural product is the beard balm, which is made with locally harvested beeswax, shea butter, and other natural ingredients and scented with essential oils. Another hot item, the face and beard wash brick soup is made with local goats mils and coconut oil, clay, oats and scented with essential oils. By handcrafting their products in small batches, Cliff Original can ensure high quality products along with their already all-natural ingredients.


When using the fresh products by Cliff Original Friesner recommends customers to “was your beard regularly and follow up with applying beard oil to the beard and skin while your pores are open to absorb the ingredients into the skin.”
