A Gentlemen’s Skin & Hair
- The average man shaves 20,000 times in his lifetime
- Shaving is a daily assault that can lead to dry and sensitive skin which can cause aging
- Often shaving is performed using products which contain a cocktail of chemicals and preservatives that dries out their skin even more
- Male facial skin is thicker which makes it harder for active ingredients to penetrate and therefore specific formulations are necessary
- Ingrown hairs are more common with men, particularly because of shaving but can also be caused by improper hygiene, product choice and tight clothing
- Razor burn is a common rash where men experience, and symptoms include sensitivity appearing straight after shaving because of poor quality shaving products and razors
- Men tend to sweat more than women
- Irregular care; men tend to be less routine based with their skin and hair regime.
- Men’s hair products tend to be harsh and with men washing their hair more frequently the net result is the loss of vital nutrients including protein
Babassu & Bergamot Range
Product Range Development:

Gentlemen’s Tonic Babassu & Bergamot Products are free from:
- Parabens – used commonly as a preservative in skin and hair care, however is also a skin irritant, often causing skin allergies such as eczema and is believed by some in the science community to be carcinogenic
- Petroleum Derivatives- these are chemicals derived from petrol-based products that strip skin tissue of important oils and minerals and are commonly found in skin and hair care products
- Artificial Colours- often added to skin and hair care products to achieve visually perfect creams and lotions but are synthetics that may cause allergic reactions
- Synthetic Perfumes- these are surprisingly toxic and have no real therapeutic value to the products themselves. Fragrances are listed in ingredients as “Parfum (fragrance)” which is the international labelling standard. We list any known essential oil allergens on packaging also.
- Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphates – found in many skincare products and commonly used as a foaming agent, yet are also skin irritants that cause many different types of skin allergies including eczema
