WANTED: Men’s Skin Care & Hygiene brands for Teenager

 :) Please suggest any male brands skin care and hygiene range with highly reduce chemicals. 

Looking to reduce my teenagers son exposure to ingredients like aluminium, parabens etc in his deodorant and skin care range. My son would only use male branded products and not the general family range as ‘they are for females’.

I already know about Jason Men & possible Bulldog. If you know any others. All information, web links of products or specific shops would be most welcome. Thanks  :smile:

    Have you looked at "the ordinary" and "inkey list" products? Not "male branded" but in minimalist simple black and white packaging - so hopefully ok.

    Both are available in (larger) Boots stores.
    https://www.boots.com/the-ordinary
    https://www.boots.com/the-inkey-list

    I'm not sure how much money you wish to spend (the Ordinary and the Inkey list are both relatively inexpensive) but Kiehls does a good men's range, as do Clinique

    As a woman, I personally like the Nivea Men's sensitive post shave balm as a moisturiser and some of the Nivea men's shower gels.

    *and you know it is impossible to have chemical free skincare... Water is after all a chemical.

    I use Gruum products, all paraben free, only available online. They aim to use natural ingredients. Gender neutral rather than male/female branding though. They also use as little plastic as possible in their packaging if helping to save the planet interests you or your son.

    They have some really good sale offers a few times a year when most products are discounted, I wait and buy when the deals are on.

    Think you might get more responses if this was on the health & beauty thread.
