Natural and organic products for guys

Monday, 9 July 2012

Selecting grooming products can be a little daunting for some men. And then it gets even more complex if they want something natural or organic. At BeautySA we’ve rounded up our favourites…


The double duty Face and Body Scrub by Sanctum, R185, contains walnut shell, luffa and rice bran to help get rid of dead skin cells and loosen ingrown hairs – a great prep product before shaving. Placecol 4Men Face Wash, R110, cleans and invigorates the skin with gentle foam containing a natural blend of non-irritating and moisturing cleansing agents.

Just Pure’s Shaving Oil, R90, promises to leave the skin hydrated and conditioned with its combination of essential oils, while the Aftershave, R160, soothes post-shaving irritation with its replenishing antioxidants.


Certified organic by ECOCERT, treemendus’ organic tea tree shampoo, R55, contains tea tree, peppermint and neem oils which deeply cleanse hair and prevents dry, itchy scalp conditions. The rosemary in the shampoo stimulates growth and adds shine to your hair. The tangy-fresh scent and extracts of organic acai berries of the Sante Homme II Body and Hair Shower Gel, R75, make this vegan and gluten-free product a great two-in-one combo.


The tea tree oil ingredients in the antibacterial body wash by treemendus, R45, cleanses while it protects while the grapefruit and lemon oils rejuvenate the skin and improve circulation. Containing organic aloe vera, the Sante Homme Deodorant Spray, R99, promises last freshness without irritating your skin. The gentle formula also contains white tea, organic witch hazel, organic calendula and natural essential oils.

Ju’Me’s Vanilla Body Lotion, R140, is a rich body lotion which derives its fragrance from natural vanilla extract. It contains certified organic ingredients, no sulfates or parabens and is vegan-friendly. The African Winter range in the Soy Body Bars, R84.50, are great alternatives to creams, lotions and butters. It’s made with organic baobab oil, organic coconut oil as well as pure soy wax, amongst others.
