Why Caffeinated Shaving ProductsGood question! Actually, when it comes to caffeine, once again the women are ahead of the men. Caffeine is already a "go-to" ingredient in everything from eye creams and anti-aging lotions to concealers and moisturizers. It just hasn't found its way into the shaving world - until now!
Which is a shame because caffeine is an effective vasoconstrictor and antioxidant that helps reduce the appearance of redness and keeps your skin looking and feeling healthy. Our products utilize the many benefits of naturally-derived caffeine from coffee beans to help liven up your morning shave routine.
Translation for shavers: say goodbye to razor rash.
And YES! - caffeine will absorb into your skin and help get you going before you even put your pants on. Will these products replace your morning coffee? Probably not. But they will help get your morning off to a great start while make shaving a whole lot more fun.
Benefits of a Caffeinated ShaveIt is high in antioxidants:
Helps keep skin looking and feeling healthy.
It is a vasoconstrictor:
Helps reduce redness and soothe skin.
It can penetrate skin and absorb into your blood:
Start your morning with a kick!
Still caffeine curious?
Here are 10 more great health benefits of caffeine.
Why Pacific Shaving CompanyWe've got a track record of success when it comes to developing innovative, quality, affordable shaving care products for men and women - and we're just crazy enough to do it! Here are some of the products we've already developed (and you can get as part of your contribution's perks):
The truth is, almost all 'shaving innovation' over the past 50 years has gone into razors and blades and delivering a close shave. But that's only half the story.
After all, isn't the ultimate goal every morning a close and comfortable shave? Just as the closeness of a shave comes from a quality razor, we believe the comfort of your shave lies with the products you put on your skin.
For years, Pacific Shaving Company has been focusing on improving shaving comfort with safe and natural ingredients that serve a real benefit and purpose - not just to extend the shelf life or leave you smelling like 'Irish mist' or 'morning dew.' And definitely not something that will leave aluminum rust rings on your bathroom counter top. After all, your skin is your body's largest organ. What you put on it everyday should be just as important as what you put in it.
How we give back to the communityPacific Shaving Company has always made efforts to give back. Our "every purchase plants a tree' partnership with Trees for the Future has directly resulted in hundreds of thousands of trees planted in third world countries - and continues today.
Pacific Shaving Company also strongly believes in the work of the American Red Cross. Blood is truly a renewable resource that can help those in need. Because there is no manufactured substitute for blood, the need for donations is real and recurring - every two seconds someone in America needs blood.
Pacific Shaving Company's philanthropic efforts expanded in 2009 to include ongoing support of the American Red Cross through product donations and active participation in blood drive efforts.
Ten percent of your contributions to this campaign will go directly to helping fund Pacific Shaving's product donations to the Red Cross and its blood drive efforts. After all, shaving is no way to give blood.
Your Turn: Please Contribute!The R&D is complete. The formulas are perfected. The new products are great! (Our testers love it!) Our California-based, longtime manufacturing partner is ready to scale up and so are we.
Your support of this campaign will go directly toward the manufacturing and marketing of our innovative, caffeinated line of shaving products (and of course, our support of the American Red Cross).
The funds raised will allow us to begin an initial manufacturing run our new caffeinated shaving products. Our goal is to first get the products in your hands, and then get it on your local retail shelves. That said, your show of support here is equally as valuable. It helps us demonstrate to retailers that real innovation in shaving care is wanted - nay, needed!
Please support Pacific Shaving Company and contribute to this indiegogo campaign.
