What does ‘making a smaller impression for a bigger impact’ mean?
It means that MenScience Androceuticals professional-grade product line positively impacts more than your health and skin – it means we take seriously our responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment. It means that we believe our collective contributions to the environment today will hugely impact the world of tomorrow.
Federico Sanchez, President of MenScience Androceuticals affirms, 'We at MenScience recognize our personal and corporate responsibility to the environment and are thus dedicated to doing all we can to protect and conserve. Wherever possible, we eliminate waste and pollution. From reducing secondary packaging and scrupulously using both sides of all printed materials, to buying wind generated power and offsetting our carbon footprint, we do our utmost to be eco-friendly.'
A Smaller ‘Carbon Footprint’ Impression
One way we reduce the environmental impact of our activities is by reducing our ‘carbon footprint’ (the amount of green house gases produced measured in carbon dioxide units (CO2) during one year). Like a literal footprint, this figurative ‘carbon footprint’ illustrates the by-products of what is left behind after production. The more energy we used, the bigger our carbon footprint.
To reduce emissions, MenScience purchases wind-generated power. While it costs more to purchase ‘clean,’ or environmentally friendly wind-generated power, it helps reduce our carbon footprint.
We also take a comfortable, yet conservative approach to our energy consumption; in addition to buying carbon offsets, we lessen unnecessary air conditioning and lighting use. Further, we make great efforts to decrease and recycle waste. Our products use only natural, eco-friendly ingredients, and they come in recyclable containers that are devoid of superfluous packaging. Wherever possible, we recycle packaging materials and paper.
Of Mice and Men
MenScience’s fragrance and dye-free product line is cruelty-free. This means our products do not contain any animal products, nor is there any animal testing in their production. We do, however, test on our friends. If you’d like to purchase a friend-tested product, click here.

CO2/kWh = 5 lbs. CO2/year) a year.
