To the disappointment of those who are looking for a great Father’s Day present, Menscience Androceuticals After Shave Products do not have a sailor walking through a picturesque port town with a seabag slung over his shoulder. The very ingredients in after shave splashes that make them so pleasant for other people are actually those additives that can cause damage – not to mention pain – to the skin of the man who is actually using it. Alcohol, menthol, citrus, peppermint and many other scents that smell so attractive, can dry out the skin, inflame tissues already irritated by razor burn or ingrown beard hairs and even cause contact dermatitis.
The formulas used in Menscience Androeuticals After Shave Products do not include any of these additives. Instead, they are designed to provide soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits for men’s skin, relying upon a suite of effective botanical extracts and oils. These ingredients help to heal skin damaged by daily exposure to harsh environmental conditions, the effects of shaving (including ingrown beard hairs) and other problems. And Menscience Androceuticals After Shave Products still make great gifts.

Additional Menscience Androceuticals Products Information
Fanfare is less important than function, which is why Menscience Androceuticals After Shave Products concentrate on healing contents rather than great-smelling scents. The carefully selected suite of botanically derived ingredients provide soothing and healing benefits for men’s skin, particularly for concerns caused or compounded by shaving.
An effective facial skin care regimen has to take into account the stresses to which the skin is subjected. For men’s faces, one of the greatest challenges is counteracting the after-effects of shaving. With that in mind, Menscience Post-Shave Repair offers a select, balanced range of botanical extracts and oils to overcome the inflammation that occurs as a result of shaving (commonly called razor burn), ingrown beard hairs, and all the other daily environmental challenges for facial skin. Extract of German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) is famous as a soothing, anti-inflammatory treatment, while camphor (derived from the Cinnamomum camphora tree) not only soothes but provides a pleasantly scented, cooling effect without the stinging and drying effects of menthol. Skin must also be kept moisturized, and aloe vera gel is one of the best emollients that exist, as well as having the added benefit of soothing skin. Healing skin damage, both immediate and protecting against future problems, is also a concern. Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) has long been used in aftershaves because it is an astringent and gently cleanses the skin. Tea tree oil (extracted from the Australian Melaleuca alternifolia) is an effective antibacterial ingredient. Salicylic acid promotes exfoliation to allow for a healthy skin cell turnover, which helps skin to heal.
