It spreads easily and effectively, softening facial hair and skin to provide the perfect close-shave. Not only does it leave you smelling good, it has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties so your face will feel good too.

Let’s assume, seeing as you’re here, you’re not a lost cause and know why deodorant is a must-have. But if you’re ready to upgrade from what you were using in high school, our Natural Deodorant is the answer. It uses coconut and jojoba oils and shea butter to form a protective layer and help absorb sweat and neutralise odour. Aluminium and alcohol-free, a natural deodorant will all the body’s natural detoxification process to kick in, so you may find yourself with clearer and healthier skin overall.
There’s no doubt that your hair is the MVP when it comes to how you look. Once you’ve got the right cut sorted, you need something that is going to keep it looking sharp.

Both Specter Pomade and Walker Fiber will do just that (while their natural ingredients keep you head healthy) – all you need to do is go for the one that works for you.
Like moisturiser, you may think cleansing is something for the ladies – the truth is they’re just way ahead of us. Cleansers get rid of dead skin cells, dirt and oil, clearing your pores and helping to prevent skin conditions. Trust us, you need to put down the soap and get your hands on our Cleansing Facial Scrub. It’s natural and won’t remove vital moisture or irritate sensitive skin.
If you want a natural high performance multi-purpose wash that will clean and improve your skin, look no further than our Hand and Body Wash. If you want to step it up, pair it with our Exfoliating Hand and Body Bar, which uses the hardworking combo of black clay, activated charcoal and pumice, to deeply clean and remove dead skin, along with oils that hydrate, regenerate and help improve skin condition. Your showers will never be the same.
Even if it’s not super sunny, you should be wearing sunscreen whenever you’re outside. Not only is it important for your health, but keeping your skin shielded from the sun will keep it looking good. Skinnies isn’t diluted with water, so a little will go a long way, and give you long-lasting UV protection – plus it isn’t greasy and feels great on your skin. Skinnies Sungel is SPF30, even after 80 minutes in the water, while Skinnies Conquer is high performance SPF50 and is water resistant for four hours.
