Urban Skin Rx has expanded into the men’s skin care space with the release of its Men’s Collection, a line of clinical skin care products that targets ingrown hairs and dark spots to create clear, smooth and bump-free skin.
The Urban Skin Rx Men’s Collection addresses common skin care problems that men deal with, especially those with course and/or curly hair.
The line is powered by Urban Skin Rx’s Hair Bump Relief Vita-B3 Complex, a proprietary blend of niacinamide, aloe and other essential ingredients that soothe razor irritation and improve the look of scarring caused by ingrown hairs, according to the company.
Urban Skin Rx launched the collection with four products:
- The Daily Exfoliating Face Wash + Scrub uses salicylic acid, jojoba beads, niacinamide and black tea to clarify the skin with a deep cleanse. It improves the look of ingrown hairs and clogged pores while brightening the complexion.
- The Daily Even Tone Soothing Moisturizer improves the appearance of clogged, enlarged pores and ingrown hairs. It soothes and hydrates dry, rough skin with hyaluronic acid and aloe. Niacinamide and pro-vitamin B5 reduce the look of inflammation and irritation caused by shaving, promoting even-toned skin.
- The Daily Dark Spot + Oil Control Pore Refining Pads are formulated with 5% glycolic acid, lactic acid, witch hazel, salicylic acid and aloe leaf juice. The pads exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce excess oil and clarify clogged pores to improve the appearance of blemishes, ingrown hairs, razor bumps and dark spots.
- The Daily Razor Bump + Dark Spot Treatment is designed to reduce the look of razor bumps and dark spots. The formula includes 6% lactic acid, 5% glycolic acid, niacinamide, salicylic acid, tea tree oil and aloe leaf juice.
Founder and CEO Rachel Roff said, “I started my career as an aesthetician almost 20 years ago, with my initial specialty being helping men with ingrown hairs. I worked at a laser hair removal center, and I saw how much the treatments helped women on their bikini lines and underarms. So I decided to try it out on a male friend who had severe ingrown hairs on his neck. After seeing such significant results, I took before and after pictures, made flyers and handed them out in every barbershop in Charlotte, North Carlina. I quickly built up a large male clientele.
“Not everyone is willing to get laser hair removal, so I learned other effective solutions to treat ingrown hairs and dark spots,” she adds. “It’s so exciting that this history of mine has come full circle, and now I can really provide easily accessible, affordable solutions for men and everyone to boost their confidence and give them clear, smooth skin.”
The Men’s Collection is available at urbanskinrx.com and target.com.
