Scott. Natural skincare for the active man

Natural skincare for the active man

Scott. is a range of natural skincare products, specifically formulated for the active man. Organic where possible, we believe in only using the best quality ingredients on our skin. 

Formulated by men, for men, we take pride in the fact that we set out as a brand aimed at active guys who like to look after their skin, but are not slaves to a skincare regime.

Getting the balance right

This article really highlights the need to get the balance right, in the formulations used in skincare, between efficiency/practiality and  skin ‘care’.

In this case, claims are being made that methylisothiazolinone, which has been used for some time as a preservative, can lead to allergic reactions. Whilst preservatives are needed to make the product safe for consumers (e.g. free of fungus, bacteria and other nasties), this cannot be at the detriment to the skin in other ways.

This is one of the challanges we face in creating the perfect products for the Scott range. We recognise the need to include ingredients which are necessary to make our products work and to get them to you in tip top condition, but one of Scott’s principles is to make our products as uncomplicated as possible, to make sure they really do care for the skin. We will have to work hard with our formulators to get the balance right!
