2007 Men's Health Grooming Awards Winner: Microfine Face Scrub

This is a big one: MenScience is proud to announce that the Microfine Face Scrub has been awarded Best Face Scrub of the Year in the Men's Health 2007 Grooming Awards!

Each year, a panel of skincare and grooming experts from Men's Health Magazine judges a wide array of products to find the 10 best, most effective items for men to help them in every aspect of their grooming routines. From hair care to shaving to face/body care, each item is carefully tested and evaluated by the panel before a decision is made. And this year, the Microfine Face Scrub has captured first place in the scrub category!
The Microfine Face Scrub was singled out for honors due to it's unique blend of exfoliating ingredients such as salicylic and glycolic acids, as well as the presence of physical exfoliators such as microfine buffing particles. This innovative combination deep cleans skin, removes dirt and dull buildup, softens and polishes, and preps facial hairs for even closer shaving.

It will be featured in the May issue of Men's Health Magazine (on newsstands right now) and online.

Go Green, Young Man!

This Sunday is Earth Day, the day when people across the country and around the world celebrate the planet and take a good hard look at what we can do to improve and protect our environment.

MenScience joins these legions of aware citizens by practicing a number of eco-friendly business actions the whole year round:

  • All MenScience product containers are recyclable and we do not use secondary packaging (almost all products are shipped in their containers without an unnecessary "product box").
  • Product samples can be used several times and are also recyclable.
  • We reuse shipping and packing boxes at every opportunity, and we make it a priority to use biodegradable filling peanuts.
  • MenScience headquarters encourages office staff to reuse paper and supplies whenever possible to cut down on material costs and waste. Ink cartridges are also recycled.
  • We cut down on energy waste by turning off the air conditioner on cool days and when we are not in the office.
  • Most of our marketing is done via electronic mail, cutting down the cost and waste of producing print catalogs, brochures and mail pieces on a regular basis.
We're still working on making more of our business practices eco-friendly, but we hope that this encourages other offices to take those first steps towards taking a greater responsibility for the environment.

For more tips on how to "Green" your office, check out the U.S. Government's Earth Day website at and the Environmental Protection Agency's website.

It doesn't take that much, and a little can go a long way.

Britney Might Have the Right Idea

While some pop divas seem to be taking the shaved head trend a bit too far, there's no arguing the fact that a shaved head is a great look with a lot of benefits.

Shaved heads work well for a wide variety of guys, from those concerned with receding hairlines to those that just want to achieve a look that's easy to accomplish and easy to maintain. And with warmer weather finally arriving, there's no better time to try out this polished look.

However, simply shaving off the hair isn't the only thing you need to do to keep your head looking good. The skin of your scalp is very thin, and by removing the hair you're exposing it to outside elements it may not have ever encountered before, including sun exposure and dry air.

The solution is to keep your pate hydrated by applying a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that absorbs immediately into the skin. After all, the skin of your scalp deserves just as much attention as the skin of your face, and both need to be nourished and hydrated after shaving to avoid irritations.

While you're at it, applying a sunblock with an SPF of 30 and broad-spectrum protection can save you the embarrassment of a burnt, flaky scalp. We recommend the MenScience Advanced Face Lotion and the TiO2 Sunblock SPF 30.

The shaved head is a beautiful thing. And don't worry: no one's going to be asking you for an autograph or demanding another chorus of "Oops, I Did It Again."
