Men’s moisturisers have become very popular over the last few years, but the way in which most of them do business has not. There is a huge movement for cosmetic companies to go green and to be cruelty free. It is almost ironic that the first company to be recognized by the BUAV, British Union for Abolition of Vivisection, is called Bull Dog.
In addition to not using this archaic methods to test their products, Bull Dog also has none of the chemicals that we are used to seeing in our moisturising products. When you look down at a normal label, you will generally see things such as synthetic fragrances, sodium laureth sulfate, parabens and artificial colours. Bull Dog refuses to put such things in their product and offers a natural version of a men’s mousturiser.
Bull Dog offers several different varieties of their moisture, so I checked the one that matched my skin type and I have to say, I was pretty impressed. The moment that you first put this to use, it just feels different on your skin. It is a hard feeling to describe, but it makes you believe that it is at least doing something. Because of this, it was time to do some investigating as to what was actually in this new moisturiser.
The label reads like a novel, but once looking at the ingredients, it became quite apparent why it felt like it was working, because it was. The product is rich in green tea extract and anti-oxidants, which are both miracle workers in the world of natural health products. It also contains essential oils and green algae. The algae works to rehydrate the skin and while this is an ingredient that is fairly new to me, I am impressed so far. This is definitely a product worthy of a trial run in any mans medicine cabinet.
