The Art of Manscaping

The Art of Manscaping

Manscaping is a phenomenon sweeping through many young men in America that involves the complete removal of all male body hair, not just on the face. Where it started, or exactly when, is unclear. Perhaps it grew out of the custom of Olympic swimmers who shaved off all their body hair to improve their speed in the water. Or perhaps it grew out of the male ideal depicted in hairless Greek sculptures from antiquity. Maybe it is all part of the metrosexual look.

But no matter, manscaping has become so mainstream for some men that even such shaving titans as Gillette and Schick devote extensive pages and videos on their corporate web sites to this topic.

Why manscape? Men’s Fitness magazine explains it by saying, “women don’t want a man that looks like he crawled out of a cave.” Since women have been engaged in full-body hair removal forever, perhaps what’s been good for the goose is now just as good for the gander.

While a man’s choice to shave all the hair from his body is quite a personal one, carrying out the job does offer some unique new challenges for men accustomed to only shaving their faces. How do you handle all the odd angles and curves and—even more importantly—how do you shave what can only be called some very delicate areas of the male physiology?

Lots of that skin is quite sensitive and delicate, requiring something far better than any kind of traditional foam, gel, cream or shaving soap designed for a man’s face can deliver.

This is where Solid Shave comes to the rescue, with its enormous content of luxurious skin care balms and its heavy supply of blade-gliding skin cushioners. Nothing protects the skin and provides a smooth, silky and irritation-free shave like Solid Shave does, no matter where it is used on the body. So go ahead—manscape with confidence!

Maintain Healthy Skin Naturally

Solid Shave is packed full with oils, emollients and moisturizers. That’s why it’s actually a fantastic skin conditioning treatment, not just an incredible shaving system. Sold Shave features your choice of two different all-natural super-emollients, Kukui oil or Argan oil. But which Solid Shave should you select?

 Argan oil comes from the nut of the Argan tree, native only to Morocco. Argan trees are tended mostly by the women of morocco, who harvest the nuts and cold-press the unique oil we use in Solid Shave. Used by Moroccans for centuries to smooth the skin and keep it young, it is so mild it is even eaten as a food.

Kukui oil is an ancient Hawaiian skin balm and medicine that has special sun-protecting qualities among its many other amazing emollient qualities. It is so gentle it is even used on the delicate skin of infants.

 Choosing to use Solid Shave with Kukui will lend additional protection from the sun, while choosing Solid Shave with Argan oil will help the women of Morocco as you feed your skin, too.

 Choosing Solid Shave with Argan oil or Kukui oil will provide rich skin-loving benefits while you shave, so either one will work wonders for you. A nice choice to have!

Soap Free Shaving Solution

Soap Free Shaving Solution

Many people shave with soap and women seem to be the biggest proponents of this method. But soap is made from lye, a terribly harsh chemical that dries and attacks the skin—not a woman’s best choice.

Soap works by surrounding molecules of dirt, breaking their bonds with the skin and allowing them to be rinsed away with water. Because of the lye, soap does the same thing with the natural oils and moisturizers in human skin as well. Thus, when you lather up with soap and rinse it off, a whole lot of the natural emollients in your skin take a ride down the drain along with the water. And this is what you choose to shave with?

Of course, few of us wish to go through life without washing or shaving. Fortunately, Solid Shave is the solution. We made Solid Shave in a solid form specifically so it can be packed with all the right kinds of loving skin care ingredients that counteract the harsh, drying effects of soap on your skin. Instead of aggravating your skin when you shave with soap, you actually improve your skin when you shave with Solid Shave.

Add a little love to your skin—Solid Shave.
