Our Story

Chemical Guys are more than a brand, it's a lifestyle with a worldwide following. Driven by adventure, a passion for shine, and a love for the road ahead, we welcome any and all who share this passion to become part of our family.

When we started, we decided to wipe the slate clean and start off fresh with the simple idea to make the best quality chemicals manufactured right here in California to the highest quality standard. Over the years, we have grown into so much more: a huge library of detailing knowledge, a benchmark in the industry, group of friends with one common passion.

What drives us is a passion for shine. Speed is aerodynamic elegance at its finest; the brilliant artistry of curved metal sheets welded together and fueled by horsepower, freshly dipped chrome, curved crystal-clear glass, the smell of new hand-stitched leather, and the sparkle of a freshly waxed auto is what fuels us. It drives us to innovate, invent, and teach, because to us, success is to build not a company, but a worldwide family whose sum is greater than all of its parts.

From exclusive small-batch waxes to cutting edge hybrid coatings, nano-polishes, and ceramic sealants, we do more than innovate in the industry, we redefine it. At Chemical Guys, we don’t just manufacture the highest quality chemicals here in California, we specialize in manufacturing unique solutions in an ever-changing industry.

Paragraph Section





At Chemical Guys, we don't just have customers, we have a family that we love to help achieve their goal of unmatched shine. We've opened our hearts, minds, and passion to all of you- listening, teaching, learning, and growing to become more than a company, but a movement.


We are us. We are passion-filled car enthusiasts and work every day to make the things we love shine their brightest and look their best. We don’t compare ourselves to others or try to compete against anyone. We know who we are and what we stand for. We focus on helping our family and cars shine their brightest


From the second we start our engines, we are driven by a desire to develop, design, engineer and manufacture the best and most technologically advanced products. We never stop testing and improving because we believe that good is never good enough and that excellence is just a starting point.


Detailing should be fun, and not a day goes by that we don't smile, laugh, and thoroughly enjoy what we do. We put a little (sometimes a lot!) of that fun into everything we do at Chemical Guys, so whether you're washing your car or shopping for the latest and greatest sealant, you too will have a smile on your face.


At our core, we are a culture of thinkers and makers. We are more than just a product company that executes ideas and innovations. We live and breathe the world we create. Detailing isn’t just something we do; it’s a lifestyle that we live day in, day out and makes us who are we are.


We believe that everyone should be able to achieve a show car shine. By not only making professional level products but providing a vast library of detailing how to’s and courses, we empower you to take charge of your life and take your shine and career to the next level.


When you’re as excited about shine as we are, you’re going to want to share. That’s why we love sharing all aspects of the detailing lifestyle on all types of social media. We love hearing from you, so tag us, email us, stop by, or just call us for a quick chat… we love hearing from you!


Change is a given - the question is not when the auto industry will change, but how soon. We want to win in the long run, drive innovation, and refine the industry while having fun and smiling along with you. So grab a wash mitt, some soap, put a smile on your face, and don’t look back… it’s going to be an unforgettable ride!
