I’m so giddy to bring this fabulous news to you …..One Blessed Acre has launched a new line from ” our farm to your bath” products. . . .our Goat Milk Men’s Grooming Care Line. Insert “Happy Dance” here!
I have been working with a personal friend, Chuck and his wife Jennie for the last several months preparing for this day. Just saying, there is a whole lot that goes into creating, branding and perfecting products. I have learned quite a bit during this process.
So, let’s get down to the nitty gritty and introduce these great products.
Women go crazy for the smell of a man. Just ask a woman how she wants her man to smell and you will get various responses from engine oil and bay; sun-browned salty skin; vetiver and cedarwood; tobacco and just plain ole’ pine forest. This answers a woman’s basic needs.” BUT – for a man it is something quite different. He has to say – I am masculine, powerful and clean. And he doesn’t want to admit that feeling might come from the way he smells.
So, we chose two sexy, powerful scents that incorporate the best of all “Man Scents”. . . Sandalwood, (Women just love Sandalwood – it speaks man!) which has notes of oakmoss, cedarwood, vetiver, and petitgrain. Our second scent is called Maverick, (Women, this scent will leave you breathless after smelling!) which has notes of fresh citrus, lemon lime, vetiver, patchouli and white musk.
You will be happy to learn that our bar soap and hand lotion formulas did not change. It’s the same great bubbles and smooth non-greasy, whipped butter lotion.
Our newest product – SHAVE SOAP – has a secret ingredient besides goat milk. . . . . Sesame Oil! This oil is rich in essential fatty acids like linoleic acid and palmitic acids. This oil is rich in antioxidants, hence it is easily absorbed into the skin, nourishing it from deep inside. It helps promote skin softness, which is exactly what is needed in a shave soap.
There is a funny story behind why we chose this oil. My dear hubby secretly loves Chinese food and his comment was “Who wouldn’t want to smell like Chinese food?” This leads me to . .
What is so special about shave soap you may ask – “Why can’t I just use regular shaving cream?” About 4 months ago, I didn’t know the answer BUT now – WOW! is all I can say. I will never go back to shaving my legs with cheap, generic shave cream. Even my girls are using the shave soap. All I hear is “Momma, my legs are so soft now!” Without going into a long chemical make up of shave cream. . . Surfactants, the chemical within shave cream, is designed to reduce tension between surfaces which also means that they make it difficult to hydrate skin. Because of this, artificial moisturizers need to be added to the product. These chemicals may not be horrendously damaging to your skin on a daily basis. However, long-term exposure has been shown to be harmful. Basically, the longer you skin is exposed to these chemicals, the drier it becomes and that means you look older much faster. This is NOT what anyone wants. Now, just imagine your man who shaves regularly using these chemicals on his face – YUCK! Once your man tries shave soap, he will never return back to yucky ole’ shaving cream.
