The History of Captain Blankenship
This beauty brand is captained by Jana Blankenship, who grew up spending summers in Maine and enjoying the wild—running barefoot through the woods, boating, and swimming in the ocean. Blankenship’s desire to create a line of organic beauty products is deeply rooted in her love of nature, which is why this brand relies on natural ingredients like cold-pressed, organic plant oils, seaweeds, sea salt, and essential oils to enhance our skin, hair, and senses.
Captain Blankenship Company Mission
“Beauty wild with nature” is the mantra at Captain Blankenship. This woman-run company based on New York’s Hudson River Valley makes luxurious, affordable products using the best nature has to offer. Ingredients are carefully sourced from around the world, and the brand works closely with farmers. Plus, one percent of its annual sales goes to organizations working to protect and preserve our land and its resources.

To help add volume and absorb excess oil, Captain Blankenship’s dry shampoo refreshes your hair with natural powders like arrowroot powder—not talc. Bridget from New York calls it the best dry shampoo she’s tried. “It doesn't leave build-up in your hair or make it feel heavy. It leaves your hair feeling light and refreshing, plus it smells fabulous! I have fine brown hair that gets oily from products, and this product doesn't make it greasy and doesn't leave a trace white powder on it.”
Sea Salt Hairspray
Craving those bean waves, but don’t have a trip to the coast planned any time soon? Sea salt hairspray is the answer. This texturizing and moisturizing mist helps add waves and give your hair a tousled look. Member Samantha from Brooklyn is hooked. “It's soft without the grip and texture of some traditional salt sprays and doesn't leave my hair feeling stiff! My waves look so natural and soft. I tell everyone about it!”
Mermaid Hair Oil
It’s easy to add luster, moisture, and shine to your locks with Mermaid Hair Oil. The formula is made with nourishing plant oils (including argan and jojoba oils) and will make your hair more manageable. A tip from Jinnifer in California: “A little goes a long way.”
