We thought we’d take an opportunity to review some cruelty-free, vegan men’s products since we tend to focus so much on products that are mainly intended for women. As tough as vegan, cruelty-free products can be to find for women, they are even tougher to find for men. We were excited to find out about the Herban Cowboy company, devoted to vegan, cruelty-free products for men. Founders Luke and Lisa started the Herban Cowboy on just a few thousand dollars, working out of their log cabin on a dirt road. The entire line was created in their kitchen, with Luke and Lisa both bottling the products by hand. Now the line is renowned worldwide, and used on the sets of well-known movies and TV programs such as: Bride Wars, Milk, Dancing with the Stars, Gossip Girl and Medium.
Herban Cowboy vegan, cruelty-free grooming products are streamlined into five essential products: shave cream, after shave balm, dusk bar soap, deodorant and shave cream. The shaving cream is full of skin soothing ingredients such as aloe, lavender and peppermint. In their signature Dusk scent, the shaving cream is free of irritating dyes and alcohol, as well as skin-drying soap. The packaging in which it comes is also recyclable. Once you are done with that shave, slap on some of their after shave balm, which includes nourishing ingredients such as cool cucumber, reparative carrot and moisturizing shea butter. This is a perfect way to sooth and moisturize your exposed skin post-shave.
For the shower, the Dusk bar soap is the perfect all-in-one combination of moisturizer, exfoliation and deodorizing. With quality ingredients such as seaweed, pumice and black walnut, it is delivered by a smooth, cleansing vegetable oil, softly scented with their signature Dusk scent. Once you’re done with your shower, glide on some of their Dusk deodorant, which offers long lasting odor protection without the harsh dyes, alcohol and aluminum that tends to lead to skin irritations. Next, top it all off with the Herban Cowboy cologne; a Dusk scent without any dyes or nasty synthetics, and free of the common animal parts used for colognes, such as anal glands.
