Kenton Athletics is a new brand of natural men’s body care products created from scratch by founder Kenton Shirk. The company is based in Providence, RI and currently features one main product, their 2 in 1 Body & Hair Wash product available in three different formulations (Surf, Mountain & Trail blends).
The Body & Hair Wash is plant based, biodegradable and derives its fragrance from essential oils. Each blend has a unique clean fresh scent that is not over powering and follows the theme of the blend i.e. Trail Blend is a woody scent, while the Surf and Mountain blends are clean and fresh.

The Surf blend is the most popular scent so far with consumers according to Shirk
