Men's grooming brand Scotch Porter closed new funding led by investment and advisory platform Pendulum.

WHO: Calvin Quallis founded Scotch Porter in 2015 after quitting his corporate job to follow his passion, and opened a barbershop, following in his mother's footsteps. From there, he worked out of his kitchen using botanicals and other nontoxic or non-carcinogenic ingredients to make products that would solve his customers' needs, evolving into a full range of better-for-you multifunctional grooming products for men across hair, skin, and body.

WHY: The funding will be used to scale operations and expand the product offering.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: "We are excited to partner with Calvin and the Scotch Porter team to support the company through its next phase of growth," said Pendulum Managing Director Ron Mackey. "With its differentiated product offering and broad distribution, Scotch Porter is well positioned for continued expansion in the men's personal care market."
