Yes, our products are cruelty-free and vegan. This was a founding principle of SELF/ish and guided our product development choices from the beginning. Our products were tested extensively...on us, our friends, and our family to ensure their safety and effectiveness.
Where are your products made?
We’re 100% US born and raised! Everything we make, everything we do is produced in the US. That includes our products, packaging, shipping boxes, shred, and printed materials.
What do you mean by "clean" skincare?
Over the last couple of years, consumers have become more health conscious. This wellness wave has heightened awareness about what we put in our bodies –– and on our skin. For too long, big beauty companies paid little to no attention to ingredients that are potential irritants, especially when used on skin in greater quantities and over time.
Times have changed and brands are now addressing consumer demands to remove ingredients like synthetic fragrance, harmful preservatives and even microplastics from skincare products. At SELF/ish, we wanted to get it right from the beginning. We embraced industry standards for clean skincare from the day we began to formulate our products –– so guys can rest assured knowing that what he puts on his face is actually good for his skin and his health.
What makes SELF/ish products different?
To start, the SELF/ish skincare system was made specifically for a man and the unique needs of his skin. SELF/ish products were specifically formulated to maintain a healthier balance in men’s skin, providing a smoother, clearer, and more refined look.
We’re also one of the only men’s skincare brands to embrace the strictest industry standards for clean skincare. We recognized from the very beginning that if we were going to ask men to think about what it means to be healthy, we needed to give them the tools to be healthy. It starts with his skin.
We started by making sure our products were clean. Then we powered up each formula with a Vitamin Boost Complex to give your skin a punch of Vitamin A, B, C, E and F for skin that's conditioned, protected and ready to take on the day!
How is a man's skin different?
A man's skin is about 25% thicker than a woman’s skin due to androgen stimulation, giving it more texture and nuance. Men also typically have more active sebaceous glands, resulting in oilier skin. SELF/ish skincare is specifically formulated to maintain a healthier balance in men's skin, providing a smoother, clearer, and more refined look.
Are you making a sunscreen?
For sure! We’ve got lots in store for you in the months ahead, including a daily sunscreen. We realize that proper sun protection is perhaps the most critical step in maintaining healthy skin.
Do you support a charity?
From the get-go, SELF/ish has been focused on giving back to men, while inspiring guys to take the best care possible of their health. To that end, we’re partnering with the leading men’s health charity, Movember, to help promote health and wellness among men everywhere.
