About Us

Welcome to Vulcan and Vixen. 

Who is Vulcan and Vixen you ask? 

Well they are a Welsh born, cosmetic company established in the Gower in 2019 by brainchild, George Gilberthorpe. 

George, who originated from a town just outside of Sheffield moved to Swansea almost 9 years ago and quickly began a career in the hospitality industry. Starting out as a bartender on Wind street, he worked his way up to managing the Purple Badger bar and restaurant in Llanrhidian. In 2019 he decided to follow a lifelong dream of entering the cosmetic industry and launching his own brand – Vulcan and Vixen! 

Having worked as a fabulous drag queen for over 9 years, George has extensive knowledge of makeup and is passionate about pushing the boundaries. His artistic flair has seen him work as a makeup artist for weddings and events always ensuring the brides, and sometimes grooms, feel the very best on their special day. 

George has explored the cosmetic market for many years and has seen, first-hand, what is available to men and women who enjoy experimenting with their makeup. While the cosmetic industry is huge, George regularly felt deflated by what was available on the market, in particular, what was available for men. After a lifelong obsession with makeup, George recognised that there are very few brands targeted towards men and those that are, have a very masculine feel, which isn’t for everyone-The concept of Vulcan and Vixen was born! 

George created the Vulcan and Vixen brand as a tool for anyone to express their own creativity and individuality. Vulcan and Vixen cater for EVERYONE, no matter what you identify as. The brand stretches the full spectrum of masculine to feminine and everywhere in-between and will welcome anyone into the fabulous Vulcan and Vixen community with open arms. Using only the best quality formula and suppliers, Vulcan and Vixen cosmetics are proud to be sourced responsibly with all elements being vegan friendly and from cruelty free testing methods. 

 Vulcan and Vixen will launch their range online at www.vulcanandvixen.com shortly and will release the following preliminary products with more to follow: Foundations; Setting Powders; Highlight & blush palettes; 15 pan eye shadow palettes; Mascaras; Lipsticks; Lip glosses; Liquid matte lips paints; Eye lashes, and Body bronzers. 

The products, colours and styles have all been hand selected by George himself. He has been working on the collection for almost a year and is very excited to present them all to you. George is very close to releasing them for sale online at www.vulcanandvixen.com.
