Brand Partners With Leading Barbers And Dermatologists To Create New Expert Shave And Give Guys The Ultimate Caring Shave Experience
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ, JANUARY 22, 2014 Professional barbers and dermatologists agree that the key to a smoother, more comfortable shave is not only the razor, but the products used on the skin and beard. Caring for men’s faces just got better with the launch of the new Dove® Men+Care® Expert Shave range. The brand’s first advanced three-step approach delivers the ultimate caring shave experience.
Built on the Dove heritage in cleansing, moisturizing and care, Dove® Men+Care® has collaborated with leading barbers and dermatologists to develop the range. Clinically proven to better hydrate men’s faces, the new Dove® Men+Care® Expert Shave range will better care for skin before, during and after shaving.
“Dove® Men+Care® Expert Shave is an upgraded shaving experience for men — the products are specifically designed to allow for smooth razor glide across the skin and an advanced level of moisturization, before, during and after shaving,” said Carmelo Guastella, award-winning barber with 30 years of experience who collaborated on the creation of the range. “I believe that how you prepare men’s skin and the ingredients used in products are as important as blade selection when it comes to shaving.”
Upgrade His Shave in Three-Steps
The Dove® Men+Care® Expert Shave Range three-step approach delivers a superior shave experience for men. Used together, the products better care for men’s faces before, during and after shaving:
- Step 1 “Pre-Shave:” Products cleanse and soften men’s skin and stubble/beard to better prepare the face for a smooth shave
- Step 2 “Shave:” Shave creams are clinically proven to provide superior hydration for the ultimate caring shave
- Step 3 “Post-Shave:” Absorbs quickly to soothe skin and help relieve shaving irritation
Superior Shave Experience
The Dove® Men+Care® Expert Shave range includes five products, each of which draws on the 50 years of experience Dove has caring for and moisturizing skin:
- Exfoliating Pre-Shave Scrub: clinically proven to hydrate skin as it cleanses, while lifting and scrubbing stubble to help reduce ingrown hairs
- Softening Pre-Shave Oil: formulated to soften hair and prepare the face for a closer, more comfortable shave with moisturizing ingredients
- Smoothing Shave Cream: creamy lather helps protect from shaving irritation and ensures a smooth razor glide to leave skin feeling soft and moisturized
- Total Comfort Shave Cream: moisture-enriched formula designed for men with dry skin, this protective cream softens hair on contact for a smooth razor glide and is clinically proven to hydrate skin and help reduce shaving irritation
- Intense Post-Shave Repair Balm: fast-absorbing, soothing formula is clinically proven to re-hydrate skin and help reduce irritation after shaving
Pushing the boundaries
The Dove® Men+Care® Expert Shave Range includes only shave creams, not traditional shave gels or foams, because cream formulas have the ability to provide higher levels of moisturization. New Dove® Men+Care® Expert Shave Smoothing Shave Cream and Total Comfort Shave Cream are formulated to help skin stay hydrated and ensure optimum levels of slick when gliding a blade over the face.
“The two shave creams in Dove® Men+Care® Expert Shave contain high levels of moisturizing ingredients that are clinically proven to offer superior moisturization compared to competitor shave products on the market,” said Matt Kuznitz, Unilever Scientist who spearheaded the research and development for the range. “We developed Expert Shave to be the most caring line of Dove® Men+Care® shaving products available and to deliver the shave experience we knew men needed and would appreciate.”
