Why all mens skincare isn't created equal

What men need to know when choosing skincare 

Skincare doesn't need to be complicated, actually the simpler the better.

When figuring out what skincare is best there are a few things to keep in mind like toxins, quality of ingredients, formulation for your skin's needs, how it can fit into your lifestyle, and value. 
Toxins in Skincare

Skincare, often laden with toxins, poses hidden dangers to health that aren't just skin deep. Chemicals like parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and undisclosed fragrances, frequently found in men's skincare, have been linked to adverse health effects. Research reveals their potential to disrupt hormones, cause allergies, migraines, respiratory issues and even increase cancer risks.

This is why organic skincare can give you peace of mind as an all natural, healthy skincare. Free from harmful toxins, organic products prioritize natural, plant-based ingredients. These formulations, devoid of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and artificial fragrances, offer a safer alternative for skin vitality, and overall health.  A focus on natural ingredients, reduces the risk of skin irritation, allergic reactions, and hormone disruption commonly associated with conventional products. Moreover, organic formulations often boast antioxidants and vitamins that nourish and rejuvenate men's skin.

Quality and Formulation of Ingredients 

There's really no point in using skincare if the ingredients aren't doing anything for you. A lot of skincare contains crappy chemical filled ingredients, based in water. This is another way that organic skincare can be more effective, as on principal it's quality and clean ingredients. If there are quality ingredients in the skincare, they could be minimal. You may not have noticed that skincare brands don't disclose the amount of each of the ingredients they include. This is why it's critical to invest in a brand you trust. Otherwise, there might be some quality ingredients in the skincare, but if it's formulated for profits instead of results it's not serving you.

How it can fit into your lifestyle

Skincare is useless if you don't use it, or not in the way you're supposed to. That's why you should consider how it's going to fit into your daily routine. If you need to have a clean face and only apply it at night, but you only shower in the morning, then it's not suited. If you need to have five products to actually get results than you're going to waste a bucket load of time and money. 

This is why the simpler products are best, and why Minimal Manimal chose to create four different products formulated for different purposes so everything you could need is covered:

Face Oil to nourish

Cleansing Oil to Clean your face and prevent acne 

Hair & Beard Oil to smooth scaly, flaky skin and dry hair 

Body Oil to hydrate and protect 


Skincare is one of those things that can range from cheap and nasty to outrageously expensive; that's why it's important to know the signs of quality. You want to look for ingredients you can pronounce, that are explained as to why they're included in your skincare. Organic skincare is worth paying a premium for but at Minimal Manimal a 30ml Face Oil will only set you back $30. 

Wrap Up

Ditch the toxins by choosing products labelled as "organic," "free from toxins," or "natural ingredients" to ensure a safer, gentler experience for the skin, promoting long-term skin health without compromising effectiveness. Always go with a brand you trust, and make sure you're not paying a motsa for a product that isn't gong to work for you. 

We've tireless worked to formulate purposeful, organic skincare products that pack a punch; so that you can get on with the better things in life. Enjoy the luxurious scent from first use, and smoother, healthier skin within a week.
