Spain is better known for men’s fashion than grooming products. Nevertheless, things are changing fast. “With men increasingly paying more attention to the way they look both in Spain and across the globe, many Spanish beauty brands are now also producing a wide range of products for men.
And these go far beyond traditional shaving products,” says beauty expert from reviewbox.es, Christopher Castrejon. With this in mind, here are four of our favorite Spanish grooming brands for men.
Founded by a former corporate manager who found that the skincare products on the market did nothing to help his skin problems, Homo Naturals produces toiletries based on natural and organic skincare recipes.
As men’s skin is different to that of women, the brand’s products are infused with ingredients that are optimal for serving their purpose, namely protecting men’s skin.
The products are infused with vegetable oils and plant extracts, rather than petroleum derived oils, such as paraffins, petroleum jelly, silicone oils, which prevent the skin from breathing.
The products also use essential oils rather than artificial fragrances. Select from face creams, eye contour products, body lotions, organic deodorants and natural sunscreens.
Billing itself as the number one skincare brand in Spain, Skeyndor now offers more than 200 products in over 45 countries, from China to Brazil. Skeyndor was created in 1966 as a beauty brand for women, but today also features a special men’s grooming collection.
The Barcelona brand blends science, innovation, personality and elegance to produce some of the best grooming products on the market. Some of Skeyndor men’s products include peeling scrubs, foaming cleaners, moisturizing masks and creams, as well as abdo fitness shaping gel-creams.
Germaine de Capuccini
Created in 1964 by Carmen Vidal, Germaine de Capuccini offers beauty lines for both men and women. The brand has certainly gone far since its humble beginnings and is now sold in over 80 countries across the globe.
Germaine de Capuccini offers a range of products specifically formulated for men, from cleansers to shaving and anti-ageing treatments. All of the brand’s products are characterized by light and pleasant texture, and fast and long-lasting results, as well as quality ingredients such as olive leaf extract, vitamin C and birch sap.
La Chinata’s history goes way back to 1932 when its founders started milling olives from the region of Sierra de Gata. Today, the brand produces men’s and women’s skincare products infused with the properties of extra virgin olive oil, as well as thermal waters and olive leaf extract.
Some of the men’s products on offer include an energizing shampoo, shower gel, body exfoliating soap, face gel, shaving cream and an after-shave balm.
