Natural Skincare for Men

Today, an increasing number of men are taking care of their skin and showing interest in cosmetics. This is not merely a whim, but a necessity, as men encounter no fewer issues and often suffer from sensitive and intolerant skin. Alongside the usual challenges such as aging and the occurrence of sensitivity, shaving often becomes a cause of inflammation and irritation on men’s skin. Nevertheless, when comparing men’s and women’s skin, we cannot overlook the significant differences which, unfortunately, favor gentlemen.

Characteristics of Men’s Skin

Thickness, Density, Aging

Men’s skin has a denser and firmer texture, which is associated with a thicker layer of connective tissue. The higher content of collagen and its gradual decrease lead to slower aging of men’s skin and the appearance of wrinkles at a later stage. This is perhaps the most significant advantage of men’s skin, understandably arousing envy among women.

Sebum Production and Susceptibility to Inflammation

Men’s skin is also oilier due to the elevated levels of testosterone, which stimulate the sebaceous glands. Along with the greater amount of sebum comes one drawback – enlarged pores. However, on the flip side, men’s skin appears more nourished for a longer period.

Nevertheless, the higher sebum production can sometimes be a predisposition for inflammatory processes within the hair follicle. This is precisely the reason behind some men refraining from shaving. However, the main cause is not the higher sebum production but rather the alteration in its composition, linked to the use of unsuitable skincare products. Sebum has a specific chemical composition consisting of triglycerides, fatty acids, wax esters, squalene, cholesterol esters, and cholesterol. It is the quantity and percentage ratio in this composition that determine how effectively sebum fulfills its primary protective functions.

Need for Shaving

Shaving stresses the skin, creating conditions for irritation and inflammation. It often leads to the skin becoming overly sensitive and intolerant. Additionally, it is usually accompanied by the use of various cosmetic products that are not always suitable and exacerbate the issues.

Improper care, such as excessive use of cleansing products, inappropriate creams, and aftershave products, can lead to changes in sebum composition. This opens the door to the penetration of harmful substances through the skin, as well as bacteria that nestle in the hair follicle. This is the process that most commonly leads to post-shave inflammation.

Adequate care involves maintaining the optimal lipid balance in the skin’s surface layer without compromising its protective properties. This is achieved through the use of appropriate, non-aggressive cosmetic products that protect and hydrate the skin, without further irritating the stressed skin caused by shaving.

Natural Care for Men’s Skin

In order to address these challenges, we have created two multifunctional, entirely natural skincare products for men that work seamlessly both after shaving and for overall daily care – for the skin or beard.

STEP 1 Daily Care: Hydration and Protection

Hydration is key to maintaining a fresh, healthy, and youthful appearance, as well as a radiant beard.
