Lava up!

Men's grooming products

Gone are the days when a man's grooming regime would simply involve shaving foam and maybe a splash of cologne.  Men are now starting the day with a Black Lava Face Wash, a shave using traditional barber shop beard care and finishing with a Hydrating Moisturiser using Volcanic Ash.

Waitrose has introduced a range of grooming must-haves from a number of exclusive, small British brands to offer the supermarket’s biggest ever collection of men’s skin and hair care.  The retailer is increasing its male beauty range by 77%, with over 40 new products, and doubling the size of its hair care selection for men.

The new brands feature a number of earthy, rugged ingredients such as black lava, keratin, caffeine, Tasmanian pepper and volcanic ash.

Mark Steele, Men’s Beauty Buyer at Waitrose says, “At Waitrose, skin and hair care collections for men have proven popular, with sales up over 8%.

“Customers are increasingly becoming more confident and experimental in their grooming regimes. In recent years, they are now more likely to have six or seven different products in their bathroom cabinets, from beard oils to brushes, rather than just one or two old favourites. We’re introducing these new brands to give men even more choice.

“Lava, caffeine and volcanic ash may not seem typical bathroom staples, but this new wave of grooming brands are pushing the boundaries. On the flip side we’re also seeing a trend for men using retro barber shop-style British products too, which is reflected in the new hair care items.

“The new range offers everything men need for their grooming regime, while they pick up their food shopping.''  

This is the first time British-made brands like Heath, Hawkins & Brimble, The Great British Grooming Co and Fish have been stocked in a supermarket. 

The new beauty must-haves for men are the perfect choice for a spot of preening to get set for a suave summer.  The range of grooming for guys consists of beard oils, exfoliators, moisturisers and face wash. A number of the new moisturisers for men list Hyaluronic Acid and Argan Oil among their components - two ingredients making a buzz in the female beauty world at the moment.

The new collections are available in Waitrose shops now.
