Frequently Asked Questions


Three Ships is based around tales of adventurers going to great lengths to find the mystical Fountain of Youth. Some legends even suggest that it was discovered by a very small fleet of just three ships. While we know this to be a myth, great discoveries can still be made with limited resources. We embrace this less is more mindset and use this philosophy to chart our course as a company. We believe you don't need a long list of unnecessary ingredients in your skincare products, and you don't need a 12 step skincare routine to achieve beautiful results.

In Canada, our products can be found at The Hudson's Bay, Chapters Indigo, Urban Outfitters, and Holt Renfrew.
In the US, our products can be found at Whole Foods in NorCal and Urban Outfitters online
