GOOD FOR SMALL, INDEPENDENT, LOCAL BUSINESSES

Small, local business is a cause worth fighting for. Join us in helping your local indies thrive.

FOUND ONLY IN SMALL INDEPENDENT SALONS, BARBERSHOPS, APOTHECARIES AND LIFESTYLE BOUTIQUES.

We love small, local, independent businesses.  We want to see them grow and prosper.  And in case you haven’t noticed, they are fighting for their lives against the few retail giants and beauty conglomerates that control more and more of consumer spending every day.  That’s one reason you won’t find CULT+KING’s amazing formulations for sale anywhere else.  When awarding wholesale accounts, we favor businesses with 20 locations or less.  The training and mentorship that small salons and barbershops offer their staff is what drives the industry to excellence, and we want to foster and encourage excellence and independence in all things. 

We also don’t limit CULT+KING wholesale accounts to the “coolest of the cool, cutting edge” businesses, whatever that means.  Sometimes everyone’s so busy being cool that they don’t have time to care about toxins, throwaway culture, plastic proliferation or small business success.  We love to hear from like-minded, awakening or just plain curious businesses who are interested in what we are doing and can help us spread the word far and wide.  Everyone’s cells  are created equal and they all deserve CULT+KING.  

WE DON’T CUT OUR AUTHORIZED RETAILERS OUT OF OUR DIRECT-TO-CONSUMER SALES.

All CULT+KING retailers are small, independent, local businesses.  The kind of businesses that make our communities vibrant and interesting.  These are the folks that are recommending our products to their customers every day, pioneering our brand, and they deserve to be rewarded for their work.  Retail customers on this web site have an opportunity to select the specific small business who referred them, and when they do, that dealer receives a generous referral rebate credit to their account that they can apply to future CULT+KING wholesale purchases.   This gives shoppers at cultandking.com the opportunity to “shop local” with the online purchases they make from us;  it’s almost as good as buying it direct from their local store.  And it gives our valued retailers an opportunity to grow as our brand grows; to reap the benefits of their efforts on CULT+KING’s behalf on a global basis.  As we grow, they grow. Period.

PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE TRAINING LIKE YOU’VE NEVER EXPERIENCED IT BEFORE.

Yes, we show you how the products work. We show you how each one does double-duty, triple-duty, quadruple-duty, especially when you start using them together in different combinations. We might even give you some razor hair cutting training using our gorgeous Shou Sugi Ban hair razor. But then we might slip in some training about emotional intelligence, body language or defining your personal brand.  It takes a broad range of skills to succeed today and we aim to help.  We might also talk to you about oceans and toxins and the state of small business in America.  Maybe plant some little activist seeds inside your heads to sprout and grow with each passing day.  Maybe even “transform your thinking.”  Because each and every one of us has the opportunity to “cause the possibilities” of what our world can be.  

YOU ARE ONE OF US NOW.

Having a wholesale account with us is more than just a transaction.  At least it is to us.
