Paul Ramer, a well-known inventor of backcountry ski equipment, stumbled across NOTwax while working with DuPont to develop waterproofing for climbing skins.

In 1996 he was awarded a patent for his work. In March, 2000 Paul tragically passed away due to Creutzfeldt-Jacob Disease, a rare brain disease. The company is now run by his daughter, and Zardoz cofounder, Kris Ramer and her fiancé Mike Van Horne.

In October, 2000 Zardoz merged with the bike lube innovator, Finish Line Technologies, Inc. Together, the two companies strive to offer the most advanced and easy to use lubricants available to sports enthusiasts.
