The Powerful Active Ingredients You Should Look for In Skincare Products

What's Hyaluronic Acid and what does it do to your face?

Fight Aging with Effective Active Ingredients

A skincare product is only as good as the active ingredients it contains. A moisturizer or face wash with lackluster ingredients can only do so much for your skin – no matter how religiously you use them. When you are looking for men’s skincare products, you need to keep an eye out for ingredients that will actually work for your skin. Thankfully, we’ve made this process easy for you. Our Standard Set includes the Honesty Face Wash and the Integrity Face Moisturizer. These naturally derived, clean skincare products each have a unique blend of quality active ingredients. All you need to do is wash and hydrate twice a day, and you’ll be giving your skin all it needs to fight signs of aging and dryness. The routine is simple, but the results are powerful. We’ve carefully selected the effective active ingredient powerhouses that are featured in our products so that you’ll get the best results. Here is a look at what these active ingredients will do for your skin.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil (pronounced “ho-ho-ba”) works to soften, smooth, and protect the skin. The oil is packed with a variety of vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamins E and B, which are great for repairing the skin, and multiple fatty acids, which strengthen and smooth. Jojoba Oil is excellent for dry skin, as it seals moisture into the skin to help protect and maintain hydration. It is also anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, so it is suitable for men with acne-prone skin. It is incredibly similar to sebum, the oil that is naturally produced by the skin and excreted through the sebaceous glands. This means that it can easily penetrate into the pores, giving the skin the full benefits of the ingredient.

Centella Asiatica Extract (also known as Tiger Grass)

Tiger Grass is a medicinal herb that originated in the far east. It is known for its powerful wound-healing abilities. In skincare, this herb primarily serves to soothe and rejuvenate the skin. Tiger Grass is packed with saponins, which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It also has other powerful ingredients that help to promote the production of collagen – a naturally-produced protein in the skin which is responsible for elasticity and firmness. On top of those incredible benefits, Tiger Grass is also great for strengthening the hydration barrier in the skin, which is vital for avoiding wrinkles and a loss of firmness.

Sage Extract

Sage Extract is particularly powerful when it comes to anti-aging. It is packed with calcium and vitamin A, both of which are essential for diminishing wrinkles and spots. On top of that, it also contains powerful antioxidants, which are also beneficial in fighting the signs of aging. Sage Extract is also suitable for men prone to acne. It helps to balance out sebum production, meaning the skin won’t over-produce oil and clog the pores. The anti-inflammatory properties of Sage Extract are also helpful for acne-prone skin, as well as those who are prone to irritation.


Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is the key to maintaining moisture and volume in the skin, as it binds to water to maintain hydration levels. It is naturally produced in the body, but processes such as aging and sun exposure can reduce the levels over time, leading to dryness and signs of aging. By introducing it back to the skin through topical skincare products, you can rehydrate the facial skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and even reduce redness. In skincare, you may see “sodium hyaluronate” listed as an ingredient. This ingredient mimics the processes of hyaluronic acid, meaning it is just as effective as the naturally-produced compound.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a powerful ingredient in skincare. It is an antioxidant, so it effectively protects the skin from free radical damage. This could be damage from sun exposure, pollution, or any other environmental stressor that could negatively impact the skin. On top of the protective qualities, Vitamin E is also wonderful for moisturizing and strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier. It is also anti-inflammatory, so it is great for soothing the skin as well.

As you can see, powerful active ingredients are key to an effective skincare product. There is no point in wasting your time or money on products that won’t fight free radicals, reduce the signs of aging, and add moisture to the skin. You need products that will actively work to achieve optimal skin wellness by treating it from every angle. The Honesty Face Wash and the Integrity Face Moisturizer contain these impressive ingredients, so they are the essentials you need for a well-rounded but simple men’s skincare routine.
