Stan Ades teams up with Red Cross blood drive 

The founder and president of the Pacific Shaving Co., a San Francisco business, is supporting Red Cross blood drives and, for the month of April, will donate a free bottle of shaving oil to anyone who gives blood.

What is your business concept? The Pacific Shaving Co. manufactures natural and environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional shaving products. These are meant to be really approachable and reasonable products that people would actually use. For every bottle we sell, we plant a tree.

How did you get into the shaving-product business? It’s funny, I’m totally not a product kind of guy. It’s really one of those things of necessity being the mother of invention. I just hated the scent and the feel of the other products that were out there. I want to be able to see where I’m shaving.

Is the product made here? Everything about our products is manufactured and sourced in the United States, and our company is here in San Francisco.

Why did you decide to make giving blood a focus? I’ve always been one of those folks who gives blood all the time, every couple months. I approached the Red Cross with this idea of a campaign that “shaving is no way to give blood.”
