The Men's Grooming Trend Continues to Grow

According to a recent Men's Grooming study conducted by The NPD Group, Inc., 9 in 10 men (ages 18 and up) use some type of grooming product, including facial and body skincare, shaving, haircare, and fragrance. The study also showed that although only one quarter of men use facial skincare products like facial cleansers, moisturizers, lip and eye products, the men’s facial skincare market has grown to 11 percent in dollar sales in 2011, compared to 2010. This means that men love skincare, too! Here are a few products that are designed to address the needs of men's skin:

1. Phytomer Homme Global Pur Detoxifying Cleansing Gel adapts to the specific needs of men and offers an easy, effective, natural deep cleansing solution. This ultra-fresh gel gently cleans, revives, and removes impurities from the surface of the skin. www.phytomerusa.com
