Our Manface Cream is a blend of masculine, balancing and sensual essential oils that is completely suited to the needs of a man’s skin. Manface Cream creates an invisible barrier that protects the skin and makes an excellent after-shave preparation that is soothing and calming. This cream has a balancing action on sebum making it suitable for both oily and dry skins. It has a stimulating and toning action and its antiseptic nature is invaluable in protecting the skin and increasing the skin’s elasticity.
A man’s skin is about 20% thicker than a woman’s and is usually firmer because it is richer in collagen and elastin levels. A man’s skin also has smaller sebaceous (oil) glands. Therefore a moisturiser is just as important and it must serve its purpose correctly to reflect the different needs of a man’s skin. Because mens skin is generally oilier than womens skin (due to the male hormone Testosterone which is responsible for the skin producing a higher amount of oil secretions) it means that they are more susceptible to blemishes and other problems. Also mens skin can be more fragile than womens because daily shaving destroys the hydrolipidic film, resulting in a loss of natural lubrication and protection.
