About the Company
How did Babo Botanicals begin? It all started with bees.

My father, a beekeeper, shared his skill and love for bees early on. My passion for beekeeping and sustainable agriculture only strengthened as I got older, and after graduating from Harvard, I joined the Peace Corps, where I had the opportunity to share my knowledge of beekeeping with women in rural Paraguay as a means of financial and nutritional support for their families.

Ad Spotlight: Neutrogena battles “Junkface” in guys with a new humorous effort



In a new ironical TV commercial, Neutrogena warns Canadian men that having a “junkface” (it’s when they wash their face and genitals with the same bar of soap) is an extremely bad thing. To address the “misuse”, the brand offers a special Men’s Face Wash that should be used specially for faces, not for any other body parts.

The new product is promoted with a tongue-and-cheek campaign by DDB Toronto that explains the phenomenon of junkfaces and posts the “sad facts” related to the junkface spread.

In fact, junkface is positioned as a disease. The dedicated website reveals highlights from the faux survey and studies dedicated to the “problem”, shares inforgraphics that shows the spread of the disease, invites to look through the FAQ section to discover if the junkface is hereditary, how to discover if you have it and many more.

Skin Care Spotlight: Dove Men Care Introduces First Premium Line of Expert Shave Products


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.”

Skin Care Spotlight: Osmosis Skincare Drinkable Sunscreen



UV Neutralizer-Tan

Achieve UV 30 protection before the sun even hits you with our innovative new technology that isolates the precise frequencies needed to neutralize UVA and UVB. Available in Tan Enhancing and No Tan Enhancing formulas.

Conditions: Sun Cancellation, Tan Enhancement

Neutralizes UV radiation
Allows for increased sun exposure (30x more than normal)
Enhances tanning effect from the sun

Take 2ml every 4 hours while in the sun (preferably with 2+ oz of water). Wait 1 hour before exposure to the sun. Monitor sun exposure carefully. Take second dose if still in sun 3 hours after first dose. For extended intense exercise outdoors or if taking sun-sensitizing medications, use alternate protection after 30-40 minutes.

About the Company
Osmosis Skincare is dedicated to fostering and maintaining health through a combination of holistic and innovative products that address common problems on a cellular level.

The Osmosis family of products can be grouped into three categories:

Pur Medical Skincare
Colour Cosmetics
Wellness Supplements

Each Osmosis product is based on the belief that the systems of the human body—including its largest organ, the skin—are inherently balanced and self-correcting. Each organ comprises millions of individual cells, which work together to keep the system running smoothly. But when the body is overwhelmed—by excessive sun exposure, environmental pollution, emotional stress—those cells (and systems) can break down. With a targeted approach, they can be brought back into balance, the result of which is vibrant good health: glowing skin, mental clarity, and a healthy body weight.

Skin Care Spotlight: Harry’s Shave Cream


Take care of your face without hurting your wallet. A 3.4oz blend of natural ingredients that provide a close, comfortable shave.

An Essential Element
Half of a great shave is great shave cream. We believe a quality razor deserves a luxurious cream that protects your skin and helps your blades glide smoothly. Our cream is made from a blend of premium essential oils that keep your skin nourished while leaving behind a refreshing sensation.

Shave cream should never be an afterthought. It’s an essential element of a great shave.
Natural Essence

Quality ingredients set premium creams apart. We blend natural ingredients to deliver the comfort and performance that you deserve. Your skin is soothed by licorice and cucumber, moisturized by marula and coconut oils, and refreshed by eucalyptus and peppermint.


Great Shave, Fair Price
A first-class shave is a luxury, but at Harry’s we think it should be an affordable one. Our shave cream is half the cost of other boutique creams made from the same fine natural oils and extracts. Your face and your wallet thank you.



About the Company

Harry's was built out of respect
for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and most importantly for guys who know they shouldn't have to overpay for a great shave.


Considered Alternative
Like most of you, we’ve long had to choose between over-priced, over-marketed razors that disrespect your intelligence, and low quality, cheap razors that disrespect your face. We knew there had to be a better way, so we created Harry’s as a return to the essential: a great shave at a fair price.

Evolved Model
We design and manufacture our own products using an exacting construction process and only the finest materials. By selling directly to you online, we're able to shave away the excess and offer a great shave at a price accessible to every Tom, Dick and…(sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves).  Read More
