Product Spotlight: Man Powder

Posted on Monday, January 18, 2016

We have a new feature here on Gentleman's Journal known as our "Product Spotlight". Every so often, we'll take a closer look at one of our Matte For Men products to give you more insight into what makes the particular product unique, effective, and simply the best at what it is intended to do. For the first installment, we'll take a closer look at Matte For Men Man Powder.

  • Why it was developed: Lee Jacobs, the founder and creator of Matte For Men, has always used powder. Most parents applied talcum powder to their children when they were young, but Lee continued to use it after showering as he grew up. Cursed with sensitive skin, any moisture present in areas where he sweated, would lead to chaffing and a rash. Powder was the only solution to avoid these problems for him. Initially, baby powder sufficed, but as he got older, the smell and the fact that talc had some inherent health issues, led him to develop a powder product with men in mind.
  • What it is formulated to do: Keep skin dry, cool, comfortable, and odor-free.
  • What's in it:
    • Pharmaceutical-grade cornstarch (absorbs moisture)
    • Baking soda (absorbs odor)
    • Tricalcium phosphate (helps keep the powder from "clumpimg")
    • Mandarin orange fragrance (a light citrus scent so you don't smell like a baby)
    • Aloe extract (to help sooth and protect skin)
  • How to use it: Sprinkle some onto your hand and smooth it onto your skin.
  • How it works: The high quality cornstarch absorbs sweat and moisture to help keep you dry and comfortable, while the baking soda absorbs odor. The proprietary formula has been perfected to maximize effectiveness.
  • Why you should use it: This simple, natural, and effective formula is the perfect finishing touch after bathing. Designed for all over use (like under arms and "down below"), Man Powder is guaranteed to help keep you feeling cool, comfortable, and odor-free even when temperatures start to rise.
  • Lee's "take" on it:  "One of my favorite products due to its simplicity and effectiveness. My grooming routine isn't complete unless I use it everyday. It really makes a difference in how comfortable I am during the day."
  • Price: $22.00
