LIFE ASKS A LOT OF A MAN
We exist to inspire and celebrate the confidence men need to face whatever the day demands through lifeproof grooming products that go the distance, never compromise and keep working no matter what.
Our products are put through their paces, made to withstand mornings at the gym, long days at the office, sunset surfs and after-work antics. Featuring flexible formulations, second-skin textures, high-quality ingredients and innovative packaging, VOLT makes it so you never have to think twice about the products you use to feel your best.
PERFORMANCE IS IN OUR DNA – OUR STORY
Volt Lifeproof Grooming was born in 2018 when the owners of EBA Performance makeup, a special FX makeup manufacturer (est. 2001), decided to pursue their long-anticipated dream of extending their exciting product line beyond film-makeup professionals.
Coming from a film and TV background, Volt immediately set a new standard by offering unique performance-driven products as well as sustainable business practices to the men’s grooming industry. In two short years after debuting with its original Volt Instant Beard Color, the Volt brand expanded to provide additional products in the beard, hair, and body categories.
Volt’s mission is simple “to provide lifeproof grooming products that simplify men’s lives and can be used anytime and anywhere”. Volt products are manufactured in-house, giving the brand 100% control over the quality, ingredients, and manufacturing procedures. Subsequently, in-house manufacturing allows Volt to provide premium products at reasonable prices by skipping costs involved with contract manufacturing.
Volt’s vision does not end with their line of men’s fine grooming products. The brand also focuses on men’s overall well-being and support through a community where everyone has a voice. Through this community, men can find helpful information and share their experiences while focusing on humankind and the environment. From grooming tips, charities, contests, giveaways and donations, to fitness, health, and travel, the Volt community is the place where exciting things happen. Although this is still in the development stages, we invite you to be part of this new journey together.
Co-Founder and CEO
Jaro Turek was born in former Czechoslovakia and spent most of his life abroad due to his father’s career as a tennis coach. Jaro has lived in Cuba, Mexico, Denmark, and Germany, and is completely fluent in three languages. Following several years in the pro tennis circuit, Jaro eventually moved to the USA on a tennis scholarship. After graduating with an International Business degree from Baylor University and then working in the corporate world, Jaro decided to hit the road traveling to festivals and fairs doing airbrush tattoos. His passion for freedom was far greater than the desire to climb the corporate ladder as Jaro was pursuing a different American dream. He lived in a van, worked hard during the day, and watched the stars at night while building his own dream business.
In 2001 Jaro founded EBA (European Body Art aka EBA Performance Makeup). From the beginning, his competitive nature, innovation, and the will to succeed have been the driving force behind the business. Under Jaro’s leadership, EBA quickly expanded into its own manufacturing facility and has become one of the most respected manufacturers and brands in the special effects, film, and performance makeup industry. In 2018, he and his team launched VOLT LIFEPROOF GROOMING, EBA’s first consumer brand of lifeproof grooming essentials for men.
Always in search of his next adrenaline rush, Jaro dedicates his free time to family, adventure travel, and sports. He resides with his wife and two kids in Orange County, CA.
