The Beekman Boys may have cashed in, but their luxe legacy lives on. 

By Marco Medrano

Now a coveted skincare line, Beekman 1802 was born as a “good guys make good” story that includes the likes of orphaned goats and the subsequent amazing goat’s milk soap bars all from the heart of the Catskills.

Though the well-documented media sensations that were “The Beekman Boys” (founders Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge) sold Beekman 1802 a couple of years ago for a cool $92 million (though they remain involved), the brand continues its excellence trajectory and its sophisticated daily facial therapies have evolved into producing natural remedies that can stand up to the shiny retailers in an affordable luxury category. 

PRO TIP: Slather the Milk Wash Exfoliating Jelly Cleanser, Willow Bark Exfoliating Serum, Milk Drops Ceramide Serum, Milk Primer SPF 35 or Milk Shake Hyaluronic Acid & Squalane Facial Toner Mist. The clever product range is large, and each target treatment has something extra, with no trace of any bad ingredients. As a longtime beauty and grooming editor, I test skincare for a living, and I can honestly say that Beekman 1802 really makes a daily anti-aging regimen results-oriented and fun. Now, that’s hard to find—in the Catskills or anywhere.
