Spencer & Devon, a new Dallas-based men’s grooming brand, launches a shaving cream formulated with more than 20 natural ingredients that hydrate and repair men’s skin before, during and after shaving.
Spencer & Devon believes its products address a currently unmet need for men with problem skin who shave regularly. The brand is now offering men a chance at healthier skin without extra steps.
“From creams to razors, men go through different phases of buying shaving products based on what they experience, hear, see or believe they can afford,” said Russell DePalma, Spencer & Devon co-founder. “The reason customers can be so fickle is that any and all shaving creams aid in the hair removal process but not all will improve skin health. Our formula improves the health of your skin with each shave.”
It’s not just the 100% aloe base that differentiates the cream from other premium shaving products, but all of the formula components that work together to promote healthy skin. The aloe vera heals skin and acts as a transdermal agent enhancing the effects of the other ingredients. Shea butter hydrates the face and minimizes irritation. Olive and avocado oils provide vitamins and antioxidants to keep skin healthy.
According to Spencer & Devon’s chemistry team, the majority of shaving creams available today are made with a water base or combination of water and alcohol. The Spencer & Devon formula has a 100 percent aloe vera base with a mixture of natural moisturizers, bump and irritation reducers, antioxidants, and vitamins. The chemistry team remarks that it has taken one cream and turned it into a multifaceted daily skincare regime that most men would never take the time to undertake.
After the brand commissioned a May 2012 survey, results concluded that 74 percent of men shave only out of necessity. Forty eight percent of those men learned from painful trial and error, painting an unpleasant picture of the act of shaving.
With survey results concluding that more than half of men experience nicks, bumps and rashes, Spencer & Devon says its formula improves skin during a daily necessity unlike other gels, creams and soaps currently on the market.
The company’s founder Russell DePalma struggled for decades to shave his thick facial hair due to his sensitive skin. Tough beards hurt to shave, dull blades more quickly and the process of shaving can dry and irritate the underlying skin.
“I created this product as a result of dealing with my own difficulty shaving,” DePalma said. “I tried many premium shave creams and soaps hoping to find a better shave but never gained the results I wanted. Not only did I want a better shave for myself, but I wanted to be able to help other men have a daily shaving experience they would not dread.”
In addition to men with facial hair and skin similar to DePalma, the product development team believes a variety of men will benefit from the formula’s ability to hydrate, heal and protect skin. Early adopters would likely be men with dry skin, razor bumps or those with regular outdoor weather exposure.
“A benefit for all men is the kaolin clay that we use in our cream – which reduces blade friction to provide a smooth, easy shave on even the toughest facial hair,” said Holly DePalma, Vice President of Operations. “And our shaving cream is paraben-free, eliminating a major cause of allergy and skin irritation in shaving creams.”
Spencer & Devon creams can be applied by hand or with a brush, and work well with all razor types. Spencer & Devon products are available online at http://www.spencerdevon.com. Priced at $27.50 per tub, which lasts an astounding four to six months depending upon shaving frequency, the cream is available in three varieties – Sagebrush, Spice and Unscented.
