Menage is an exciting range of male skincare products, here on Mankind. They use the power of antioxidant technology to deliver expert anti-ageing formulations. Menage have a range of products from face wash, to eye cream, and they cater to many male skin concerns.
The Menage team gained inspiration from a BBC documentary that aired in 2007. It claimed that many antioxidants don’t function well, or even at all, once they’ve been included in cosmetics products. The team worked closely with antioxidant researchers to design and measure the effectiveness of antioxidants in skincare, ensuring that they could create the best match. After much testing, the team discovered that the strongest performing antioxidant was a moisturising one, Copper PCA. Like many scientific discoveries, Copper PCA was discovered accidentally so research is still being conducted on additional benefits. Menage is said to be the only men’s skincare brand in the world with patented antioxidant technology.
In 2010, Charlie Pitcher approached Menage to create a hand cream. Charlie is a world record breaking rower, and whilst planning to row single handedly across the Atlantic, he needed a hand cream that would protect his hands from friction, sun and salt water. Of course, Menage accepted the challenge. Following on from the great feedback of Charlie, they realised many men would need similarly effective skincare. After all, we’re all equally important, right? Aimed at men who are exposed to harsh conditions, whether that be through work or just typical English weather, Menage was born.
Here are some of our tried and tested favourites from the range:
The Menage Deep Pore Cleansing Face Scrub, is a revitalising scrub that helps to smooth out and refresh your complexion. It’s skin-friendly, penetrates deep into the pore and eliminates excess oil and dirt, without stripping the skin. Natural volcanic particles get to work to slough away dead skin, whilst also unclogging pores and preventing ingrown hairs. Sounds ideal, right?
Right chaps, you need to use an SPF. We can almost guarantee any premature ageing is due to sun exposure and not protecting your skin. Thankfully, the Menage Anti-Ageing Moisturiser comes with built in SPF15 so you don’t have to worry about it. Enriched with the powerful Copper PCA antioxidant, this fast-absorbing cream also protects your skin against any free radicals, whilst still providing long lasting hydration.
Besides your face, your hands are the other part of your body that is always on show. Forgetting to protect and moisturise your hands is a rookie mistake. The Menage Daily Hand Repair is a fast-absorbing cream that works to repair, protect and restore comfort. It’s non-greasy and instantly sinks into the skin, helping to quickly and effectively defend against free radical damage.
