2. Black Wolf Nation Aims To Uncomplicate Men’s Personal Care – HAPPI.COM

FROM THE INTERVIEW (On naming the company Black Wolf Nation): What’s in a name? We knew we wanted to make something quintessentially masculine. My grandfather has the weird tradition where whenever one of us turns 13, he gives us a razor and shaving cream. His whole message is, no matter what you do, no matter who you are, if you look your best, you’d be surprised how much you can get accomplished. When you present yourself well, people take you more seriously. It’s a message he’s always had for us. So, we felt let’s name the company after him and his name is Wolf.

3. Molly Suds Voted Best Natural Laundry Detergent – BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS

FROM THE REVIEW: Many people argue that natural products aren’t as effective, but this one is proof that that’s not necessarily the case…After washing and drying various items with this detergent, none of the items had any leftover residue, and they all felt soft and pliable, especially the towel. Similar to the results with other products, the linen napkin had deep-set wrinkles, but unlike some of the other detergents, Molly’s Suds left the other fabrics wrinkle-free.

The packaging provides a great user experience. The lightweight, resealable bag has specific instructions on the back and a small scoop inside. One other thing that makes this one of the best laundry detergents? The price. At $15 for 70 uses, it costs just a little more than 21 cents a load, which is 4 cents less than the median price of 25 cents.

When you consider the value of an unscented and plant-derived formula, this product is a solid option. The ease of use is a big pro, too, adding even more to the value.

5. Oars & Alps Among 17 Best Aluminum Free Deodorants – SPORTS ILLUSTRATED

FROM THE RANKINGS: Plant-based, all-natural ingredients make this natural deodorant an amazing choice if you’re looking for one of the best aluminum-free deodorants for men… Formulated without any allergens, unpleasant chemicals, or aluminum, this deodorant is perfect for those with sensitive and dry skin.

Cornstarch is highly absorbent and will aid in reducing sweat by simply absorbing it rather than blocking and clogging sweat glands. It’s also quick-drying, so it keeps your underarm area dry, while aloe vera nourishes your skin with the nutrients it needs to thrive.

Oars + Alps are also cruelty-free and vegan, meaning they’ll only use the botanical powers that nature provides and never test them on animals. You can have a completely clean conscience when buying their deodorants.
