In April of this year, online men’s beauty retailer Zorilla launched the Cruelty Free Botanical Skincare Range from MMUKMAN. This range joins previously established Marramco Products in Zorilla’s line-up. This is big news for New Zealand, as it shows an increase in interest for the growing world of men’s skincare and cosmetics.
The range includes 17 products specially formulated to tackle key concerns of male skincare; sensitive skin, acne, aging, redness and puffiness. The products contain classic botanical ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Allantoin, Chamomile, Japanese Green Tea, White Willow Bark, and Collagen. All of these ingredients have proven track records in the skincare world. The MMUKMAN skincare range is expected to continue growing with another retailer about to launch in Australia this July.
Zorilla’s range includes seven moisturisers, with six now on offer from MMUKMan. The remaining one - the Marramco UV Absorbing Moisturiser - has been a winning product for Working Style New Zealand since December, thanks to its naturally UV absorbing qualities.
Natural UV Absorbers are popular on the west coast of America, given its climate. The latest technology in sun protection, natural UV absorbers work differently to SPFs. SPFs create an artificial blanket across the skin that protect against UV, but also stop the absorption of the other beneficial ingredients.
On the other hand, UV Absorbers stop the UV from getting past the top layer of skin, preventing sun burn and long-term ageing, while also allowing the rest of the ingredients to have their intended therapeutic and nourishing effect on the many layers of skin below. Zorilla’s Marramco UV Absorbing Moisturiser is 100% organic, containing Vitamin A and E, helping to boost natural collagen.
The new range of MMUKMAN products is the beginning of a core foundation of products which will allow men to construct a skincare routine from the basic building blocks of skincare. From washing and cleansing products, through to exfoliants, toner, serums, eye creams, masks and moisturisers.
As men become more aware of how much of a difference even a small skincare routine can make – especially if you start early - we foresee the product offering increasing.
