Face Care Ingredients

Face Care Ingredients 101

Guys have thicker skin than women, so they need ingredients that can penetrate deep without causing irritation. The skin around your eyes is the thinnest and most prone to show premature signs of aging. So it’s important to use only the best ingredients to keep your face clean, moisturized and youthful. Here’s what our face ingredients can do for your skin.

Over 50% of men report having sensitive skin. Which makes us wonder, is it skin
that's the issue or are men's products too harsh?

How Face Product Ingredients Should Help Your Skin

Step 1
Our Top Exfoliating Ingredients

• Charcoal Powder

• Perlite

• Salicylic Acid
• Glycolic Acid

1.

Exfoliate dead skin and buildup

Clearing away dead skin cells and oxidized sebum from your face is crucial to men’s skin health. As we get age, it’s harder for our body to turn over skin cells, yet sebum production doesn’t slow down until we’re in our 60s or 70s. Your skincare products should help the process along by using gentle exfoliants instead of harsh chemicals.

Is exfoliating good for your face?

Exfoliation is essential for men’s skin health and appearance. By removing dead skin cells, you reveal newer, younger-looking skin, prevent clogged pores and breakouts, and get more out of your other face products by allowing them to penetrate more deeply.

If you’re new to exfoliating, start by doing it once a week. Try our Solid Face Wash, which cleanses and physically exfoliates with a gentle scrub. If you find your skin could use a little more, try our Anti-Everything Pads, which chemically exfoliate your skin with gentle acids.

What are the best ingredients for skin exfoliation?

There are two types of exfoliation: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliants like Perlite, derived from volcanic rock, and Charcoal Powder have fine granules that make efficient exfoliants. Larger exfoliants like nut shells can damage skin. Chemical exfoliants break down the bonds between dead skin cells. We like Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid, an alpha hydroxy acid found in sugarcane, apples, and citrus fruits.

2.

Maintain Moisture and Balance Oil Levels

Every product you use on your face should help maintain proper levels of skin moisture and hydration—it’s essential to your skin’s health. However, many products today strip your skin of its natural moisture without replacing it, which can lead to discomfort, redness, blemishes, and even chronic skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis.

Why does your skin need moisture?

Your skin needs moisture to protect it from harmful bacteria and pollution so it can create a protective barrier. That not only keeps harmful bacteria from growing, but also keeps moisture inside to help skin regenerate faster and keep it firm and elastic. Proper moisture balance also helps prevents common issues like dryness and tightness.

Which skin care ingredients maintain moisture and balance oil levels?

When it comes to skin moisture, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil are effective, time-tested ingredients you’ll find in several of our products. We also use Hyaluronic Acid, which can carry up to 1000 times its weight in moisture and deliver that to your skin. Our Soothing Shave Cream has Coconut and Olive Oils that work to restore hydration. Our lip balms use moisture-rich Beeswax.

Step 1
Our Top Moisturizing Ingredients

• Shea Butter
• Jojoba Oil
• Aloe Leaf Extract
• Coconut & Olive Oils
• Hyaluronic Acid
• Beeswax

Step 1
Our Top Anti-Aging Ingredients

• Vitamin C
• Alpine Caribou Moss™
• Barley Seed Extract
• Vitamin E
• Green Tea Extract

3.

Prevent Premature Signs of Aging

Our face products are proof that the right skincare ingredients can keep your skin healthy and younger-looking at the same time. Check the bottles in your bathroom. If your face products don’t have ingredients to keep you looking youthful, try ours. They’re formulated to fend off premature aging using effective, good-for-you ingredients.

What are the signs of premature aging?

Premature signs of aging can take many forms, including wrinkles, lines, sagging skin, sunspots, and hyperpigmentation. These can cause a guy’s appearance to look beyond his actual age. But with the right ingredients, you can prevent and even reverse some of these issues.

Which skin care ingredients help prevent signs of aging?

Our products approach men’s anti-aging from a few different angles. We use antioxidants from Vitamin E and Alpine Caribou Moss™ (a lichen harvested from the Arctic Circle) to fight off free radicals (oxidized particles that can lead to aging and even cancer). We also use Barley Seed Extract and Green Tea Extract for their anti-aging properties. And the list wouldn’t be complete without Vitamin C, one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients, capable of resurfacing your skin and fighting hyperpigmentation. A potent form of Vitamin C makes up 20% of our Wake Up Face Serum formula.

4.

Stimulate Collagen

Why is collagen important? Think of it as the building blocks of your skin, allowing it to feel firm and plump, not saggy. Your skin’s collagen production slows as you age, but you can stimulate the process with the right ingredients.

What does collagen do for your skin?

Collagen is an essential protein that provides men’s skin with structure. Studies have shown it can also improve your skin quality and muscle function.

Which ingredients help to stimulate collagen?

You can stimulate collagen production with ingredients like fruit-derived Glycolic Acid, found in our Anti-Everything Pads. Vitamin C has also been shown to boost collagen production; you'll find that in our Wake Up Face Serum. Shea Butter also aids in tissue cell regeneration. We include that in our Face + Eye Cream.
