The Spa Man has gone green with a round-up of five of the best face soaps for men. Ditching the plastic packaging, soaps are an eco-friendly way to cut down on excess packaging, whilst keeping your skin clean, fresh and refreshed. We have all seen Blue Planet and are (hopefully) well aware of the amount of plastic we simply discard on a daily basis. The fact list below is enough to make anyone want to ditch plastic in favour of green and eco options like soaps!
- About 8 million metric tons of plastic are thrown into the ocean annually. Of those, 236,000 tons are microplastics – tiny pieces of broken-down plastic smaller than your little fingernail
- There are five massive patches of plastic in the oceans around the world. These huge concentrations of plastic debris cover large swaths of the ocean; the one between California and Hawaii is the size of the state of Texas.
- Every minute, one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans.
- The amount of plastic in the ocean is set to increase tenfold by 2020.
- By 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish (by weight).
So listen up – when looking for a new face wash or cleanser – check out this range of facial soaps – here are five of the best face soaps for men.
Five of the best face soaps for men
Baxter of California Vitamin Cleansing Bar Citrus and Herbal Musk
This one has it all – vitamins A and E to nourish the skin whilst Glycerin and Seaweed help to hydrate it. I love the blend of citrus with the herbal musk as it’s energizing and refreshing.
Clinique For Men Face Soap
This is a classic and one of the first face soaps to launch specifically for men. Expect a thorough cleanse without drying the skin and your pores will be picture perfect. Excellent pre-shave too.
Triumph & Disaster Shearer’s Soap
Inspired by sheep shearers in New Zealand, this wonder soap is made from a translucent glycerin that is both gentle and non-drying on the skin, poppy seeds exfoliate and is great for face and body.
Herbivore Bamboo Charcoal Detoxifying Soap Bar
Bamboo Charcoal is your best friend if you have oily, combination, or blemish-prone skin. This soap delivers with added tea tree oil which is anti-bacterial and bergamot, which balances skin and smells great.
Anthony Exfoliating and Cleansing Bar
A dual-action soap bar for the face and body infused with skin-polishing Jojoba Spheres. Shea Butter and Coconut Oil hydrate and Cucumber Extract and Grapefruit fragrance promise to leave the face and body feeling soothed, refreshed and hydrated.
