Sliquid announced the launch of Buck Angel’s T-Collection. The company, who partnered with trans-activist Buck Angel to create T-Lube, their FTM-focused lubricant, is expanding their collaboration to include three new products. The addition of these products will help to form a 4-product “collection” that takes a more comprehensive approach to the various sexual wellness and grooming needs of trans men. The new products that will be joining T-Lube to create the T-Collection are Buck Angel’s T-Wash, T-Oil, and T-Stim.
“Fully understanding the importance of T-Lube, we watched
with excitement and appreciation as the industry and members of the trans
community received and began to champion the product. Not just because of its effectiveness in
solving a common FTM issue, but because there was finally a lubricant on the
market that was specifically geared toward the trans community,” says Dean
Elliott, Founder and CEO of Sliquid.
“Listening to the feedback we were getting from our
retailers and users of T-Lube, we began to realize that the trans community was
still lacking options when it came to other health and grooming needs. As with T-Lube, we delved into issues that
Buck himself has experienced in his transition as a source of inspiration. With Buck by our side, we began to develop
products that would effectively address common occurrences that take place with
the body during the transition process.”
Buck Angel’s T-Wash is a pH balanced, gentle cleanser that
is formulated with natural sea salt, coconut oil derivatives, botanical
extracts, and has been infused with the masculine-presenting scents of
sandalwood, musk, and black pepper. In
addition to a body wash, the T-Collection is offering a second grooming product
that address trans men’s facial hair.
Buck Angel’s T-Oil is a hand-crafted blend of natural nut and seed oils
that soften, smooth and shine any trans man’s beard, or any other body hair for
that matter. Infused with the woodsy scent of Sandalwood, T-Oil also contains
antioxidant-rich Vitamin E to help hydrate and condition the skin underlying
the beard hair, preventing flaking and itching.
Joining T-Lube in the sexual health category of the
collection is Buck Angel’s T-Stim.
Specifically created with the genital wellness of trans men in mind,
T-Stim is formulated with high-quality natural ingredients. Infused with
food-grade Peppermint Oil and Menthol, these naturally derived vasodilators
help draw blood flow to the surface, increasing arousal and stimulation.
“As more and more companies begin to acknowledge the roll of
trans men as valuable customers, I am proud to say that my partnership with
Sliquid has put us both on the forefront of getting highly important
trans-focused products into the hands of my community,” says Buck Angel, the
man behind the name and story of the collection.” Every new product that makes
up my T-Collection was thoughtfully crafted with the FTM transition process in
Buck Angel’s T-Collection was debuted last week, in Burbank,
CA, at the ANME Founders Show. The
response to the new product line was overwhelmingly positive, with many
retailers excited to represent the full collection. Buck was present with the Sliquid team at
their booth for both days, on hand to provide information about each individual
product, but also to provide attendees with his story and why the partnership
with Sliquid is so important to the trans community at large.
Of his partnership with Buck, Elliott says, “Buck is one of
my best friends, and like a true brother to me.
We at Sliquid are huge supporters of all transgender persons, so we are
honored to be part of Buck’s story and help bring awareness to the needs of
this beautiful community.
The new items are packaged in sleek dark bottles with matte
black labels. Buck Angel’s T-Wash comes
in an 8.5 oz option, while T-Oil and T-Stim are offered in 1 oz bottles.
