  • What's Ape?

    Ape is a natural, healthy, and eco-friendly skincare company.
    Ape is more than just a brand. We're on a mission to create the largest eco-friendly and natural company in the world. We're driven by our passion for this beautiful planet and the people and animals who live on it. We have huge ambitions for charity work too, but more about that later.

  • Why gaming if you're a skincare company?

    Ape’s co-owner and head of marketing, Drew Buonaiuto, is a long time gamer. Almost 70% of Americans play video games, but gamers are still often seen as a minority. Our research shows that in 2020 and 2021, there was a massive uptick in streaming and the number of people watching streamers, so we knew this was an industry we wanted to get more involved in. We're as passionate about gaming as you are.

  • What kind of products do you sell?

    Ape started in 2015 as a soap company. We then added in Lip Balm and now carry a variety of products, including solid shampoo, beard oil, face oil, and more. In 2022 we'll be adding a minimum of 5 new items to our product line. We're always working on expanding and innovating so we can one day offer healthy and eco-friendly products to everyone in the world.

More about this affiliate program

Ape’s co-owner and head of marketing, Drew Buonaiuto, is a long time gamer. Starting with PS1 and moving his way through the consoles before eventually landing on PC gaming, he has noticed for a long time how poorly and underrepresented gamers are. With obnoxious stereotypes that are decades old about gamers still popping up in media and marketing, we realized it was time for some proper representation. Almost 70% of Americans play video games, but gamers are still often seen as a minority. Our research shows that in 2020 and 2021, there was a massive uptick in streaming and the number of people watching streamers, so we knew this was an industry we wanted to get more involved in. After discussing this idea further with a member of Gary Vee’s team, and them agreeing that this has a ton of potential, we launched Ape Friends.

We decided to take the next steps to begin really establishing ourselves as a brand that cares about gaming. We did this by launching @apebrandgaming on Tiktok and Instagram. Ape Gaming is a place where we share original content from Ape’s co-owner, Drew, as well as any clips our affiliates send us. If being a part of this page is something you’re interested in participating in, this is a great way for you to get additional exposure and potential growth of your personal brand. Each week, we rotate a publicly displayed discount code for one of our affiliates on these pages to give everyone a chance to get a boost to their sales and make some extra money.  These pages are still new, and we’re testing different approaches to the content, but we anticipate rapid growth on them in the coming months. On top of this exposure, you have the opportunity to gain new followers through our Ape Friends page where we have a bio and links to all our affiliates. As Ape grows and this site gets more traffic, you'll start to see the same on your personal pages.

In addition to all of this, Drew has started posting his own gaming videos on YouTube. While his variety channel is still relatively new, there will be many opportunities to collaborate for those who wish to. This will be yet another opportunity for more exposure for our Ape Friends.

To make your viewers feel more at home when they first visit our site, we've created a custom gaming-themed landing page HERE
When they follow your link to Ape, it will take them directly to this page and automatically use your discount code at checkout so they wont forget!

We’re trying to make the world a better place through this brand. That means we have strict guidelines about who we’re willing to associate with. If you’re reading this, it means we’ve already gone through your videos and social media and liked what we saw so far.

Please note, this page is an introduction and summary of our program. When you sign up as an affiliate on our website, there will be a terms and conditions section that we recommend you look over.
Please note, we are aware we’ve said “please note” too many times now.

We look forward to hearing from you! Please let us know if you have any questions about Ape, this program, or our products.
You can reach Drew directly via email at drew@apebrand.co and via text at 828-429-2634 

Ape is more than just a brand.

Ape is a vision, an idea, backed with immeasurable amounts of passion, paid for regularly with blood, sweat, and tears, that will live on forever. Others might just see a company, but we see Ape as a beacon of hope for what the future can hold if we all work together.


Eleanor Roosevelt once said "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”.
The future belongs to us, every single one of us, who are in pursuit of something greater than just our own wants and needs. The future of our planet and all of humanity depends on all of us.
