The notion that only women are interested in skin care is an idea whose time has long gone. Men of all ages and races are searching for skin care products that help to improve their skin’s health and appearance. Research both here and abroad has shown that topically applied lycopene may play an important role in reversing the damaging effects of environmental pollutants and the sun’s UVA and UVB rays responsible for skin aging and possibly skin cancers.
Our post-shave balm contains a combination of Aquose Micro-Dispersed Lycopene as well as SyriCalm™ a patented botanical extract of Pheaquites Kharka and Poria Ceces. SyriCalm™ has a barrier repair and maintenance function that prevents water loss to keep skin hydrated. It also contains the newest ingredient to hydrate the skin - Fision Hydrate™ which is proven to impart 18% better hydration than any other ingredient available. In addition, chamomile extract soothes and calms irritated skin while jojoba seed oil and our proprietary blend of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid increase hydration by decreasing trans-epidermal water loss. Glabridin, the active form of licorice extract evens skin tone. Three powerful antioxidants - lycopene, green tea extract, and grape seed extract protect the skin from the damaging effects of environmental pollutants and toxins responsible for premature aging of the skin. It also reduces skin redness and inflammation while decreasing nerve response to irritation caused by shaving or waxing.
As an aside the Lycopene Post Shave Balm has also been proven effective in calming sun burnt skin, while keeping it moist so skin peeling is less likely to occur.
